Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Launching Operation Last Chance in 2002, Efraim Zuroff spearheaded a vast public campaign to locate and bring to justice the worst suspected Nazi criminals before ill health or death spare them from potential punishment. Zuroffs project yielded the names of over 520 previously unknown suspects in 24 different countries, which has led to many convictions. Combining the thrill of a detective story with the inherent poignancy of the history of World War II and its aftermath, Operation Last Chance delivers the important and moving story of one mans heroic efforts to honor the victims of the Holocaust.
