In Hitler's Shadow: An Israeli's Amazing Journey inside Germany's Neo-Nazi Movementby Yaron Svoray, Simon Wiesenthal (Introduction), Nick Taylor
Since re-unification, disturbing headlines have poured out of an unstable Germany: Violent attacks by neo-Nazi skinheads against foreigners, including members of the U.S. National luge team and the rise of militant far-right nationalism have caught the attention of the world--and provoked only seething indifference from the German government. Now, in an extraordinary personal report, an eyewitness goes behind the headlines to penetrate the dark heart of Germany's neo-Nazi movement. Yaron Svoray, an Israeli journalist, was pursuing unrelated story when he literally stumbled on a cadre of neo-Nazis; soon, backed by the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, he used the cover of a fictitious American right-wing organization to infiltrate the movement--whose members never discovered Svoray's true identity. What he saw--and documented with hidden cameras and microphones--was a highly organized group whose connections spread across social strata and included "respectable" German politicians as well as wealthy patrons (in Germany and the U.S.), all of whom are unrepentant about Germany's past and wish to put Nazism in its future. In Hitler's Shadow is not an alarmist tract but a powerful expose of the clear and present danger posed by Germany's radical right. Not only does this a amazing story--which will be an original HBO feature early 1995--give meaning to today's news, it has already made news and will continue to do so throughout publication.
