Hitler's Bounty Hunters: The Betrayal of the Jews

Synopsis

In Hitler's Bounty Hunters, investigative journalist Ad van Liempt pulls back the curtain on the shocking practice of bounty hunters and their roles in the Holocaust. These bounty hunters rounded up over 9,000 Jewish citizens for the Nazis, sometimes chasing families across hundreds of miles for their reward. Most of the bounty hunters were ordinary citizens, not forced into service by the Germans or even ideologically aligned with them, but simply men and women looking for some cash and power. Van Liempt examines the careers of bounty hunters in great detail, telling the stories behind their hunts. He also investigates the bounty hunters' claim in court that they did not know what happened to their victims after they had delivered them to the Nazis. This haunting book uncovers a facet of the Holocaust that has virtually been overlooked by historians until now.
