The Nazi Hunters How a Team of Spies and Survivors Captured the World's Most Notorious NaziVanished 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 This is the thril. I was pretty surprised by how blah I thought this book was I know that it's by the same author who just wrote Hunting Eichmann and it's actually gotten mentioned in Newbery buzz as in what a shame that this great book isn't eligible but I thought that it was not great Bascomb must have put all his effort into the adult book and then just chopped out all the writing that was too adult for a child audience I thought the sentences were stilted short and boring I never really came to sympathize with any of the characters because they were all portrayed so flatly with nothing supporting them Maybe that was different in the adult version I'm not willing to try it to see if it's better

The story of Eichmann's capture is now a major motion picture starring Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley Operation FinaleIn 1945 at the end of World War II Adolf Eichmann the head of operations for the Nazis' Final Solution walked into the mountains of Germany and. Adolf Eichmann the head of operations for the Nazis’ Final Solution was a man whose very name struck fear in the heart of any hearers But as World War II came to an end in 1945 this powerful man somehow disappeared seemingly going unpunished for his part in the Holocaust Incredibly he managed to escape notice for sixteen years hiding in Argentina until a team of spies brought him back to Israel where he faced justice Readers will be fascinated at Eichmann’s ability to hide in plain sight and the fact that a teen girl and her blind father provided information that would lead to his arrest The involvement of an elite Israeli spy team many of them with personal connections to the Holocaust and lesser known heroic figures makes readers race through the book to see if Eichmann manages to escape and go underground once again The book relates some of the mistakes and assumptions that could have spelled failure for the team and its mission as well as its triumphs and the dedication of its members It's interesting to consider how close Eichmann came to getting away with his part in the genocide and his certainty even when he was tried that he was simply following orders With photos sprinkled throughout the book this narrative nonfiction title deservedly won the YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction

The Nazi Hunters was a book that was promoted at BEA this year so naturally I was very curious to read this account of the capture of Adolf Eichmann in 1960 The author Neal Bascomb had already written a book about the group of Holocaust survivors who pulled off Eichmann's capture for adults called Hunting Eichmann and now he has revised it for younger readersEichmann was the very high ranking Nazi who had been responsible first for the emigration of Jews to Palestine and later for implementing the Final Solution beginning in 1942 to meet Hitler's goal of making Europe Jew free But in April 1945 as the Allies attacked Berlin and with the deaths of 6 million Jews on his hands it was time for Eichmann to get out of Europe For 16 years no one heard anything about him It was as if he simply disappeared off the face of the earthAmazingly despite efforts to find Eichmann and bring him to justice he was never found until a teenage girl named Sylvia Hermann living in Buenos Aires South America in 1956 started dating a young man named Nick Eichmann Invited to dinner at the Hermann home Nick like his father was also anti Semitic and couldn't resist commenting at table that his father had been a high ranking Nazi officer and it would have been better if Germany had finished what it started as respects the Jews in Europe It seems amazing that the capture of such a notorious criminal began with two young people dating for a brief time but eventually a group of survivors of Eichmann's concentration camps came together based on this and additional information But it didn't happen immediately In fact interest in what the Hermann's reported to Israeli intelligence died and it wasn't until a few years later that Eichmann was again identified and a group of highly trained Mossad spies and Holocaust survivors set the plan to capture him in motionThe Nazi Hunters is a hard book to put down but it is also a fast read in part because it is so well researched and so excellently written It is as exciting and tense as any spy thriller you might read with one difference it all really happened Lest you forget that what you are reading is nonfiction there is also an abundance of photographs of the people the places invloved and the documents used some forged to help the reader formulate a well rounded picture of the whole very clandestine operation from start to finish And because most of the names will not be familiar to readers today and because there were so many of them there is also an in depth list of all the people who participated on some level or other in the plan to capture Eichmann Bascomb has really done such a good job of presenting the whole story factually and appropriately for young readers without simply dumbing down his original adult work and he includes plenty of back matter for further information andor inuiry I have read Hannah Arendt's account of Eichmann's trial in Israel Eichmann in Jerusalem a number of times but have never read an account of how he got there Bascomb does cover the trial briefly but his main focus is really the capture of Eichmann And I can say uneuivocally that from the beginning to the end Bascomb will keep you on the edge of your seat as Eichmann's fate unfolds The Nazi Hunters is a book I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in the Holocaust and its perpetratorsThis book is recommended for readers age 12This book was an E ARC from NetGalleyThe review was originally posted at The Children's War
