Efraim Zuroff talked about his book Operation Last Chance: One Man’s Quest to Bring Nazi Criminals to Justice (Palgrave Macmillan; November 10, 2009). In his book Mr. Zuroff, director of the Israel Office of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, recalls his co-founding of Operation Last Chance in 2002 to bring to justice Nazi war criminals. Mr. Zuroff reports that since the launch of the organization, 520 new suspects have been identified in 24 countries and his efforts have produced numerous indictments. He talked about the work it took to convince countries to take legal action against the Nazi refugees to whom they had given shelter and gave an update on the status of certain cases. Topics included the moral justification for taking action and the general lack of remorse felt by the war criminals he has met. He responded to questions from members of the audience. 

This book launch event was held at 6:30 p.m. on Monday November 9, 2009, at the New York Tolerance Center in New York City.  close
