St. Augustine resident concludes Nazi era in new book

The last living remnants of the Holocaust, the notorious Nazi war criminals and those who doggedly hunted them, have all but faded away.

Still, the tales of the monsters and heroes of World War II riddle the pages of history, specifically the books of author and St. Augustine resident Andrew Nagorski.

That’s because the past, Nagorski said, should never be forgotten.

The award-winning journalist’s most recent book, “The Nazi Hunters,” recounts pieces of history otherwise lost in time.
