Summary
"This ... book traces the biographies of thirty 'typical' perpetrators of the Holocaust -- some well known, some obscure -- who survived World War II. Donald M. McKale reveals the shocking reality that the perpetrators were only rarely, if ever, tried or punished for their crimes, and nearly all alleged their innocence in Germany's extermination of nearly six million European Jews during the war. He highlights the bitter contrasts between the comfortable postwar lives of many war criminals and the enduring suffering of their victims" --Dust jacket
