Book Talk Café to host ‘The Nazi Hunters’ author

January 27, 2017

Journalist and author Andrew Nagorski will reveal the fascinating true story of “The Nazi Hunters” at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 27 at a Book Talk Cafe program at the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library.

Nagorski’s book focuses on the small band of men and women who refused to allow the crimes of the Third Reich to be forgotten, and who were determined to track down Nazi war criminals.

With riveting detail, Nagorski chronicles the stories of both famous and lesser-known Nazi hunters.

Kirkus Reviews wrote of the book, “A detailed look at the grim work of tracking Nazis over the decades since World War II. Packed with the tangled, riveting detail of the many cases … absorbing.”

Nagorski is an award-winning journalist and author who spent more than three decades as a foreign correspondent and editor for Newsweek.

From 2008 to 2014, he was vice president and director of public policy for the EastWest Institute, an international affairs think tank.

Nagorski is now based in St. Augustine, but continues to travel extensively, writing for numerous publications.

Both of his most recent books, “Hitlerland: American Eyewitnesses to the Nazi Rise to Power” (Simon &Schuster, 2012) and “The Nazi Hunters” (Simon &Schuster, 2016), have received rave reviews.

Presented by Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library, the program is free and open to the public.

The author will sign copies of his book at the end of his talk.
