Nagorski: Amerykańskie media wiedzą już, że nie wolno pisać "polskie obozy zagłady"

Holiday Recommendations from the Wall Street Journal for the Best History Books

Andrew Nagorski’s engrossing “The Nazi Hunters” (Simon & Schuster, 393 pages, $30) is the story of the men and women—very different and often at odds with one another—who after 1945 pursued the architects and the executors of the Holocaust. At first they were spurred by a simple thirst for revenge, but their campaign evolved into a quest to make sure one of history’s greatest enormities would never be forgotten—in a holiday season or any other.

The Nazi Hunters exchange, part 2: ‘Individual dissent in the fight for justice is always needed’

The last former Nazis are dying out, and so, too, are those whose life’s work was to hunt them down. Nagorski tells their stories evenhandedly, uncovering a fascinating cast of characters from all over the world and placing their efforts in a broader perspective. He describes how Nazi hunters first aimed to exact revenge without trials, how early court cases were exploited to present dubious hearsay that convicted former Nazis in the court of public opinion, and how Germany and other countries eventually lost interest in prosecuting former Nazis.
