In this dual autobiography, the Klarsfeld's tell the dramatic story of fifty years devoted to bringing Nazis to justice.
Beate and Serge Klarsfeld are French activists, journalists, and renowned Nazi hunters whose work apprehending war criminals, seeking justice for victims and survivors of war crimes, and establishing the record of the Holocaust have brought them international recognition. Serge, born in 1935 in Romania, and Beate, born in 1939 in Germany, assisted in the capture of numerous Nazi perpetrators, including SS official Kurt Lischka, Gestapo captain Klaus Barbie, and Paris police chief Maurice Papon. The recipients of France's Legion of Honour and Germany's Federal Order of Merit, both nations' highest honors for civilians, they were named UNESCO ambassadors of genocide prevention by the United Nations in 2015. Sam Taylor has written for The Guardian, the Financial Times, Vogue, and Esquire, and has translated such works as the award-winning HHhH by Laurent Binet; The Heart by Maylis de Kerangal, which Taylor's translation won the French-American Foundation Translation Prize and was a finalist for the Albertine Prize; and the internationally bestselling The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair by Joel Dicker.
"Remarkable . . . Throughout their harrowing work, [the Klarsfelds] maintained a home in Paris and remain to this day devoted to and inspired by each other. A masterful work of historical importance." --Booklist (starred review) "At its best [Hunting the Truth] gives an exhilarating picture of amateurs assuming investigative duties in search of long-overdue justice." --Publishers Weekly "With bravery and chutzpah, a husband and wife demonstrate that there's no moral compromise with history." --Kirkus "This inspiring memoir of persistence and staying true to one's beliefs will remind all readers that although it may be slow, justice will triumph." --Library Journal "The Klarsfelds, by their assiduous research and documentation, helped in the identification and capture of Nazis and others responsible for those crimes . . . The Klarsfelds will be remembered for their emphasis on using the legal system to try the perpetrators of the Holocaust and to prevent their rehabilitation as honored citizens." --American Thinker
