In 1945, at the end of World War II, Adolf Eichmann, the head of operations for the Final Solution, walked into the mountains of Germany and vanished from view. Sixteen years later an elite team of spies captured him at a bus stop in Argentina and smuggled him to Israel, resulting in one of the century's most important trials - one that cemented the Holocaust in the public imagination.
The Nazi Hunters is the thrilling and fascinating story of what happened between these two events. Survivor Simon Wiesenthal opened Eichmann's case; a blind Argentinean and his teenage daughter provided crucial information. Finally, the Israeli spies - many of whom lost family in the Holocaust - embarked on their daring mission, recounted here in full.
Based on the adult best seller Hunting Eichmann, which is now in development as a major film, The Nazi Hunters is a can't-miss work of narrative nonfiction for middle-grade and YA listeners.

This book reveals so much about our human need for justice, rather than mere vengeance. I found myself marveling that a man could justify his choice to engineer the genocide of the Jews by saying he was just following orders. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand better the pivotal players of World War II and the effect of the trial of Adolf Eichmann.
