6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book records the history of the Vaad-ha-Hatzala, which initially focused exclusively on the rescue of rabbis and yeshiva students, but later expanded its efforts to include all jews threatened by the Nazis regardless of their religiosity or affiliation. During World War II, the Vaad was able to help rescue hundreds of refugee Torah scholars, most of whom escaped to safety via the Far East, as well as thousands of Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe."--Jacket
Our people : discovering Lithuania's hidden holocaust by Rūta Vanagaitė( Book )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This remarkable book traces the quest for the truth about the Holocaust in Lithuania by two ostensible enemies: Rūta a descendant of the perpetrators, Efraim a descendant of the victims. Rūta Vanagaitė, a successful Lithuanian writer, was motivated by her recent discoveries that some of her relatives had played a role in the mass murder of Jews and that Lithuanian officials had tried to hide the complicity of local collaborators. Efraim Zuroff, a noted Israeli Nazi hunter, had both professional and personal motivations. He had worked for years to bring Lithuanian war criminals to justice and to compel local authorities to tell the truth about the Holocaust in their country. The facts that his maternal grandparents were born in Lithuania and that he was named for a great-uncle who was murdered with his family in Vilnius with the active help of Lithuanians made his search personal as well. Our People exposes the significant role in implementing the Final Solution played by local political leaders and the prewar Lithuanian administration that remained in place during the Nazi occupation. It also tackles the sensitive issue of the motivation of thousands of ordinary Lithuanians who were complicit in the murder of their Jewish neighbors. At the heart of the book, these are the issues that Rūta and Efraim discuss, debate, and analyze as they crisscross the country to visit dozens of Holocaust mass murder sites in Lithuania and neighboring Belarus. This book follows them on their remarkable journey as they search for neglected graves, interview eyewitnesses, and uncover hints of the rich life that had existed in hundreds of Jewish communities throughout Lithuania."--
Operation Last Chance : one man's quest to bring Nazi criminals to justice by Efraim Zuroff( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sixty years after the end of World War II, members of the Nazi party and their collaborators are still alive - and are increasingly difficult track down. And the clock is ticking. But Efraim Zuroff will not give up. In 2002, Zuroff launched a vast campaign called Operation Last Chance to find the biggest Nazi criminals, before it's too late. He placed advertisements around the world, in newspapers, magazines, newsletters, and local publications offering a reward to anyone who had information. Six years later, in spite of the relentless passing of time, the opposition of many governments, and even death threats, Zuroff was able to list the names of 488 criminals who are alive and at large. Combining the thrill of a detective story with the inherent poignancy of WWII history, Operation Last Chance delivers the important and moving story of one man's efforts to bring criminals to justice

Occupation, Nazi-hunter : the continuing search for the perpetrators of the Holocaust by Efraim Zuroff( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in English and German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past fifteen years there has been renewed interest in the efforts to prosecute the perpetrators of the Holocaust. Sparked by revelations that Allied countries such as the United States, Great Britain, Canada and Australia had afforded a postwar haven to thousands of Nazi collaborators, Nazi-hunters continue their efforts to insure that those responsible for the implementation of the Final Solution are held accountable for their crimes. This task has not been easy as the passage of time, numerous legal and technical difficulties and the reluctance of host governments to deal with this issue have created extremely difficult obstacles in the path of achieving justice. This book tells the story of an individual who has played an important role in the recent efforts of two of the most important agencies in the field of Nazi-hunting - the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Office of Special Investigations (OSI) of the U.S. Justice Department. As a researcher in Israel for OSI from 1980 to 1986, Efraim Zuroff found numerous documents and witnesses who helped convict Nazi war criminals living in the United States. He participated in the investigation to determine whether the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele had been arrested and released after the war by the American Army. He also uncovered a means of tracking down thousands of Nazi collaborators who had escaped to the West by utilizing postwar Red Cross records of refugees. It was this discovery which prompted his decision to leave OSI and become coordinator of Nazi war crimes research for the Simon Wiesenthal Center. Over the course of the past eight years, the Center has submitted the names of over 1,700 suspected Nazi war criminals to twelve different countries and has helped influence Canada (in 1987), Australia (in 1989) and Great Britain (in 1991) to pass special legislation to enable the prosecution of Nazi war criminals living in those countries. In addition, Sweden, New Zealand and Iceland have also launched special investigations of Nazi war criminals in the wake of the Center's efforts to expose the perpetrators of the Holocaust. Occupation: Nazi-hunter discusses how Nazi-hunting was revived in the seventies, how it was carried out in the eighties and whether it can continue in the nineties. It chronicles the personal story of one of today's Nazi-hunters, a young Jew born after the Holocaust who has devoted his life to the pursuit of justice for the victims of the Holocaust
Nasi : podróżując z wrogiem by Rūta Vanagaitė( Book )

"Autorzy, Efraim Zuroff i Rūta Vanagaitė, opisują swoją podróż po Litwie w poszukiwaniu żyjących świadków masowych egzekucji na ludności żydowskiej w latach 1941-1944. W żadnym innym kraju zbrodnie nazistowskie nie były dokonywane na taką skalę. Zamordowano ponad 90 procent z przeszło 200 tysięcy litewskich Żydów. Niemcom aktywnego wsparcia udzielali kolaboranci ze specjalnej litewskiej formacji wojskowej, kierowanej przez Hauptscharfuehrera SS Martina Weissa."--
