The Nazi Hunters by Neal Bascomb, 245 pages
The Nazi Hunters is basically a spy mission of undercover agents and survivors of the holocaust trying to find and capture Adolf Eichman, who was in charge of many of the terrible and gruesome acts committed against jews, blacks, and any other targets of the Nazis.
Discussion: I knew the conditions of Jews in concentration camps were horrific, but i never knew to what extent. They were separated from their families, stripped, beaten, left in the cold, left in slums and cramped spaces, treated like animals, and much, much more. It made me realize that I probably shouldn't joke about the holocaust and take it seriously.
"Zeev was directed to the left, his parents and siblings to the right. He never saw his family again" (Bascomb 10).
"Eichmann strode into the camp... He announced to the prisoners, 'Jews: You have nothing to worry about. We want only the best for you. You'll leave here shortly and be sent to very fine places indeed. You will work there, your wives will stay at home, and your children will go to school. You will have wonderful lives.' Zeev had no choice but to believe him " (Bascomb 8).
"Jews in Jerusalem listen to Eichmann's trail on a portable radio" (Bascomb 212)"
"'The Führer has ordered physical extermination.' Eichman was sent to report on killing operations already under way in Poland" (Bascomb 13).
"'Whoever is unable to continue may remain here, and he will be transfered by truck. Zeev had learned not to believe such promises, but he was too tired, too cold, and too indifferent to care"(Bascomb 19).
