Praise for The Eternal Nazi
"Brilliantly narrated...uses the countless jigsaw-puzzle pieces produced by a manhunt that lasted decades—including the many false leads that took Nazi-hunters to far-flung reaches of the globe—to explicate, with sharp originality, distinctive facets of the psychological and political landscape of the Third Reich and its long and complicated afterlife." —The New York Times Book Review
"A fascinating read. This is a tale of police procedural, in an era before computers and databases, of those hunting the worst humans this world had to offer."
“Gripping...The Eternal Nazi shows how long it took for Germany to fully reckon with its Nazi past...Kulish and Mekhennet adeptly portray the silence and repression that surrounded Nazi crimes...Heim plays that ageless near-mythic figure, the evil man with a clear conscience, unrepentant to the end.”
"A brisk, compelling read, with all the frustrating plot twists and eccentric character cameos of an espionage thriller."
—The Jewish Daily Forward
"An elusive Nazi doctor who escaped justice receives a thorough scouring ... Haunting, doggedly researched."
"The Eternal Nazi manages that rare feat of being as cinematically riveting as it is morally serious."
"This highly readable account unfolds more than a mystery novel than a work of non-fiction. It is crisply written, meticulously documented and highly engaging. It is superb reporting that will keep readers engaged until the very last page."
"[A] dramatic story—which often makes fiction seem tame by comparison—with the flair of a riveting mystery."
"A brilliant feat of historical detection that illuminates a nation’s dramatic reckoning with the crimes of the Holocaust." —Bookreporter.com
"Part biography, part engrossing true crime story, The Eternal Nazi is a fascinating look at the hunt for Nazi war criminals after World War II."
"Reads more like a mystery novel than a work of nonfiction."
—Fort Myers Florida Weekly
“He was hardly as famous as Josef Mengele, but Aribert Heim was every bit as vicious. And, like Mengele, this doctor-torturer-murderer eluded his hunters until the very end. The Eternal Nazi finally reconstructs Heim’s dark odyssey—from his sadistic practices in Mauthausen to his life in hiding as a convert to Islam in Cairo. Part detective story, part meditation on how family loyalties obstructed those seeking justice, this book is a remarkable achievement.”
—Andrew Nagorski, author of Hitlerland: American Eyewitnesses to the Nazi Rise to Power
“With exacting detail and a rich cast of characters, The Eternal Nazi chronicles the feverish, zigzagging hunt for the barbarous Dr. Heim. A journalistic masterpiece and a thrilling read.”
—Neal Bascomb, author of Hunting Eichmann
“This is a deeply reported, fascinating tale of obsession and the heavy burden of family and national guilt. Nick Kulish and Souad Mekhennet take us on a gripping search for the handsome Nazi doctor who became one of the world's most elusive war criminals.”
—Evan Thomas, author of Ike's Bluff
“Aribert Heim’s chilling story as a free man in Egypt made me wonder what was more appalling: his heinous activity as an SS doctor, or the fact that like most former Nazis he was never punished for his crimes. Thoroughly investigated and written in riveting style, this is a fascinating and thought provoking book.”
—Tom Segev, author of Simon Wiesenthal: The Life and Legends

Die Familie kannte lange Zeit die Anschuldigungen nicht. Er leugnete hartnäckig. Insbesondere der jüngere Sohn, der bis zum Tod zu ihm hielt, glaubte an seine Unschuld. Der ältere Sohn hatte sich getrennt, ebenso die Ehefrau.
Nachdenkenswert ist eine Verfolgung, die sich über Jahrzehnte erstreckte, während berühmte Ankläger wie Simon Wiesenthal und Aedtner ausschieden, krank wurden und starben.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
