"A full, lucid, and moving biography of the Nazi-hunter who became the 'unwelcome conscience' of post-Holocaust Europe." —Kirkus Reviews

Simon Wiesenthal survived thirteen concentration camps and has since spent more than fifty years searching for Nazi war criminals and bringing them to trial. This comprehensive and objective biography chronicles Wiesenthal's early life and survival in the camps, recounts in gripping detail each of his major Nazi hunts, and evenhandedly examines the conflicting reputations -- as both hero and egomaniacal liar -- of this controversial and enigmatic public figure.
