Praise for Nazi Hunter: The Wiesenthal File

  • Wiesenthal is a unique survivor... his one purpose is that justice for the dead of Europe, those wilfully killed by his fellow Austrian, Hitler's decree, be not forgotten. To understand him read Levy's book. - Sunday Telegraph

  • It is greatly to the credit of Alan Levy that he has dared to give us an objective account of Wiesethal's career. - Sunday Times

  • [Wiesenthal] can have no finer interpreter and sympathiser than Alan Levy, who has dealt justly with him. - Financial Times

  • Wiesenthal has played his part in a disturbing episode of post-war history. He deserves this readable and intelligent book. - The Times

  • Levy is ruthless in his determination to make every act of barbarity clear. It is impossible to turn the pages without feeling not just despair but revulsion. - New Statesman & Society
