I had never heard of Adolf Eichmann until I read this book. The Nazi Hunters was a fascinating account of a powerful Nazi, his attempt to hide from justice, and the team of men that risked everything to find him.
Like most non-fiction, this book had a lot of people in it. I had a hard time keeping everyone straight in my head and remembering who was who. There were a couple of places where the excess of details almost killed the suspense, but only momentarily. Overall, I found the book to be highly interesting, educational, and gripping. I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat as the team sat on the side of the road waiting to grab Eichmann.
There were a lot of things that I didn't know about until I read The Nazi Hunters. I didn't know that the Holocaust survivors didn't really talk about their experiences once the war ended. I didn't know that the anti-Jewish sentiment was still alive and strong, and that the threat of history repeating itself was very real. Eichmann's capture and public trial were crucial to bringing to light the horrors of the holocaust and educating the public—especially the younger generation.
Verdict: Fantastic read for anyone!
Content: Descriptions of crimes against the Jewish people.
