Read full description of the books Tappajat joukossamme: Elämäntyöni natsirikollisten paljastajana:In a drab Vienna office, a very ordinary - looking man pours over the letters and documents strewn across his desk. His name is Simon Wiesenthal. He is balding, slightly paunchy, and usually dressed in a plain, gray business suit. Yet, this man is the most feared avenger in the world, and his inconspicuous office is the center of an incredible international tracking network responsible for the capture of nearly 1,000 notorious Nazi's! Adolf Eichmann, Franz Stangl, Commandant of the Sobibor and Treblinka death camps, Murer, "the Butcher of Wilna," Silberbauer, the Gestapo agent who arrested Anne Frank — the list of his "clients" reads like a Who's Who of Hell...
THE MURDERERS AMONG US is the terrifying story of this man, and of how and why he earned the label, "The world's most relentless Nazi-Hunter!"
"Reads like a fascinating detective thriller.. .You just can't lay the book down."
"AN ABSORBING NIGHTMARE TALE...IT IS ALL TRUE, BUT THE READER MUST PINCH HIMSELF TO BELIEVE IT."
Read information about the authorSimon Wiesenthal, KBE, was an Austrian-Jewish architectural engineer and Holocaust survivor who became famous after World War II for his work as a Nazi hunter who pursued Nazi war criminals in an effort to bring them to justice.
Following four and a half years in the German concentration camps such as Janowska, Plaszow, and Mauthausen during World War II, Wiesenthal dedicated most of his life to tracking down and gathering information on fugitive Nazis so that they could be brought to justice for war crimes and crimes against humanity. In 1947, he co-founded the Jewish Historical Documentation Center in Linz, Austria, in order to gather information for future war crime trials. Later he opened Jewish Documentation Center in Vienna. Wiesenthal wrote The Sunflower, which describes a life-changing event he experienced when he was in the camp.
A biography by Guy Walters asserts that many of Wiesenthal's claims regarding his education, wartime experiences and Nazi hunting exploits are false or exaggerated. Walters calls Wiesenthal’s claims "an illusion mounted for a good cause". It is difficult to establish a reliable narrative of Wiesenthal’s life due to the inconsistencies between his three memoirs which are in turn all contradicted by contemporary records. It is partly thanks to Wiesenthal that the Holocaust has been remembered and properly documented.
Wiesenthal died in his sleep at age 96 in Vienna on September 20, 2005, and was buried in the city of Herzliya in Israel on 23 September. He is survived by his daughter, Paulinka Kriesberg, and three grandchildren. The Simon Wiesenthal Center, located in Los Angeles in the United States, is named in his honor.
