Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sixty years after the end of World War II, not all those who were faithful to the Third Reich are dead - some members of the Nazi party and their collaborators are still alive, and increasingly difficult to track down. Time is rapidly running out, but Efraim Zuroff won't give up. Launching Operation Last Chance in 2002, he 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. Despite the passage of many years, the reluctance of many governments to cooperate, and even death threats and a price on his head, Zuroff's project yielded the names of over 520 hereto unknown suspects in 24 different countries and led to dozens of murder investigations, as well as several indictments and extradition requests currently pending.

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 man's heroic efforts to honor the victims of the Holocaust.

Synopsis:

Sixty years after the end of World War II, members of the Nazi party and their collaborators are still alive--and are increasingly difficult track down. And the clock is ticking. But Efraim Zuroff will not give up. In 2002, Zuroff launched a vast campaign called “Operation Last Chance” to find the biggest Nazi criminals, before it's too late. He placed advertisements around the world, in newspapers, magazines, newsletters, and local publications offering a reward to anyone who had information. Six years later, in spite of the relentless passing of time, the opposition of many governments, and even death threats, Zuroff was able to list the names of 488 criminals who are alive and at large. Combining  the thrill of a detective story with the inherent poignancy of WWII history, Operation Last Chance delivers the important and moving story of one mans efforts to bring criminals to justice.
