Hunting the truth : memoirs of Beate and Serge Klarsfeld by Beate Klarsfeld( Book )

18 editions published between 2015 and 2019 in French and English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than half a century, Beate and Serge Klarsfeld have hunted, confronted, and exposed Nazi war criminals, tracking them down in places as far-flung as South America and the Middle East. It is they who uncovered the notorious torturer Klaus Barbie, known as 'the Butcher of Lyon, ' in Bolivia. It is they who outed Kurt Lischka as chief of the Gestapo in Paris, the man responsible for the largest deportation of French Jews. And it is they who, with the help of their son, Arno, brought the Vichy police chief Maurice Papon to justice. They were born on opposite sides of the Second World War. Beate's father was in the Wehrmacht, while Serge's father was deported to Auschwitz because he was a Jew. But when Serge and Beate met on the Paris metro, they instantly fell in love. They soon married and have since dedicated their lives to 'hunting the truth'--both as world-famous Nazi hunters and as meticulous documenters of the fate of the innocent French Jewish children who were killed in the death camps. They have been jailed and targeted by letter bombs, and their car was even blown up. Yet nothing has daunted the Klarsfelds in their pursuit of justice. Beate made worldwide headlines at age twenty-nine by slapping the high-profile ex-Nazi propagandist Chancellor Kurt Georg Kiesinger and shouting 'Nazi!' Serge intentionally provoked a neo-Nazi in a German beer hall by wearing an armband with a yellow star on it, so that the press would report on the assault. When Pope John Paul II met with Austria's then-president, Kurt Waldheim, a former Wehrmacht officer in the Balkans suspected of war crimes, the Klarsfelds' son, dressed as a Nazi officer, stood outside the Vatican. The Klarsfelds also dedicated themselves to defeating Jean-Marie Le Pen's National Front and his daughter Marine Le Pen's 2017 campaign for president in France. Brave, urgent, and buoyed by a remarkable love story, Hunting the Truth is not only the dramatic memoir of bringing Nazis to justice, it is also the inspiring story of an unrelenting battle against prejudice and hate."--Jacket

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One man's story of his Jewish mother, against the backdrop of Nazi and Vichy anti-Semitic policy Sarah Lewendel, a Jewish woman originally from Poland, disappeared in the vortex of the Nazi extermination machine on D-Day, June 6, 1944. Her son has lived with this tragedy for over 65 years and has carefully reconstructed the history of the Holocaust in Provence, the Vaucluse, and its main city, Avignon. Germany invaded southern France in November 1942 and the German police made abundant use of freelance Jew hunters, who eagerly seized the opportunity. The details of Nazi and Vichy anti-Semitic policy and the mechanisms of collaboration with its Mafia component have never been analysed with such accuracy. -- Provided by publisher

Etwa 800 dieser Kinder stammten aus Deutschland und Österreich. Von dort waren sie mit ihren Eltern vor den Nationalsozialisten nach Frankreich geflohen. Mit großem Engagement haben Beate und Serge Klarsfeld alle verfügbaren Informationen über diese Kinder zusammengetragen, um an ihr Schicksal zu erinnern und sie vor dem Vergessen zu bewahren. Es finden sich Briefe der Kinder an ihre Eltern und Freunde, teilweise in Handschrift, und andere Dokumente wie Kopien von Reisepässen, Deportationslisten oder Zeitungsartikel. Viele Lebensläufe lassen sich so gut dokumentieren. Neben Lebensdaten, Herkunftsort der Kinder und Nummer ihres Transports blicken uns auf etwa 200 Fotos ihre Gesichter an. Mit diesem Buch soll an das Leben der ermordeten Kinder erinnert werden. Es hebt sie aus der anonymen Masse der Opfer heraus und macht sie wieder als Individuen sichtbar. Ein Vorwort von Serge Klarsfeld leitet das Buch ein. Es folgen die rekonstruierbaren Lebensläufe von 163 Kindern mit Fotos und anderen Dokumenten sowie eine vollständige Liste der ermittelten Kinder
