Description
A co-founder of the Institute for Historical Justice and Reconciliation in the Netherlands, Timothy Ryback follows up Hitler's Private Library and The Last Survivor with this fast-moving, utterly gripping narrative reconstruction of six weeks in 1933, when one honest man tried to expose the Nazis as murderers. On April 13th, deputy prosecutor Josef Hartinger was summoned to the newly established concentration camp at Dachau, where four prisoners had been shot, supposedly trying to escape. But what Hartinger found—a barbed wire cage in an industrial wasteland, the men's corpses dumped in an ammunition shed, precise gunshot wounds to their heads, all of them Jews—convinced him that something was terribly wrong. Hitler had been appointed Chancellor only six weeks previously, and the Nazis would soon have a stranglehold on the entire judicial system, yet Hartinger raced to hold the regime accountable before it was too late. Ryback tells the story of a man willing to sacrifice everything in his pursuit of justice.

"Frighteningly compelling ... [with] the feel and pace of a court-room thriller. As it approaches its climax, you almost believe this dogged, decent man is going to win through.... Superbly researched and tautly written."—Daily Mail (Book of the Week)

"Gripping—and thoroughly chilling.... The haunting question at the heart of this book is this: if there had been a few more like Hartinger ... was there any way the Nazi terror might have been averted?"—Telegraph (London)
