9780545430999: The Nazi Hunters: How a Team of Spies and Survivors Captured the World's Most Notorious Nazi

In 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 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 bestseller HUNTING EICHMANN, which is now in development as a major film, and illustrated with powerful photos throughout, THE NAZI HUNTERS is a can't-miss work of narrative nonfiction for middle-grade and YA readers.

From the Inside Flap:

THE NAZI
He commanded a network that stretched across Europe, targeting and delivering millions of people to the death camps. He followed every order, and he was very good at his job. But when the war ended, he disappeared without a trace. Would Adolf Eichmann ever face justice for his crimes?

THE HUNTERS
A teenage girl. Her blind father. A secret agent. A lawyer. A man who dedicated his life to tracking Nazis. A carefully chosen team of expert spies.

Several had survived the camps. Nearly all of them lost family there. And in work spanning fifteen years, they found Eichmann on the other side of the globe.

THE MISSION
The goal was clear: Capture Eichmann and bring him to trial before the world. But for the group of spies charged with carrying it out, it would require false identities, precise teamwork, split-second timing, patient surveillance, and courage beyond anything they'd ever achieved. Their actions would shape history... if they survived and succeeded.

Illustrated throughout with incredible photographs, this riveting true story is a Holocaust tale, a spy thriller, and a powerful account of justice sought and served.
