This is a biography of Simon Wiesenthal that encompasses his trials as a victim of the Holocaust and the Life he led afterwards locating Holocaust survivors and locating nazi war criminals.

This is macabre but essential reading on the Holocaust.
  gmicksmith | May 26, 2010 |
In these days of Holocaust deniers, this book is a needed reminder of the horrors the Nazis perpetrated on the Jews. Simon Wiesenthal personified the difference between vengeance and justice. He is dead now but his words should spur both Jews and Christians to proclaim: NEVER AGAIN! ( )

Book description
(From Back Cover)
In a drab Vienna office, a very ordinary - looking man pours over the letters and documents strewn across his desk. His name is Simon Wiesenthal. He is balding, slightly paunchy, and usually dressed in a plain, gray business suit. Yet, this
man is the most feared avenger in the world, and his inconspicuous office is the center of an incredible international tracking network responsible for the capture of nearly 1,000 notorious Nazi's! Adolf Eichmann, Franz Stangl, Commandant of the Sobibor and Treblinka death camps, Murer, "the Butcher of Wilna," Silberbauer, the Gestapo agent who arrested Anne Frank — the list of his "clients" reads like a Who's Who of Hell...THE MURDERERS AMONG US is the terrifying story of this man, and of how and why he earned the label, "The world's most relentless Nazi-Hunter!" "Reads like a fascinating detective thriller ... You just can't lay the book down."
-SATURDAY REVIEW
"AN ABSORBING NIGHTMARE TALE...IT IS ALL TRUE, BUT THE READER MUST PINCH HIMSELF TO BELIEVE IT."
-MIAMI HERALD
