The Nazi Hunter
In Mr. Zuroff's first book, Occupation: Nazi-Hunter; The Continuing Search for the Perpetrators of the Holocaust (KTAV: Hoboken, 1994), Zuroff chronicles the belated efforts to prosecute Nazi war criminals in western democracies and explains the rationale for such efforts several decades after the crimes. A German-language edition was published by Ahriman Verlag in 1996. His second book Operation: Last Chance: One Man’s Quest to Bring Nazi Criminals to Justice (Macmillan: New York, 2009) summarizes almost three decades of Nazi-hunting and focuses on the renewed efforts spearheaded by Zuroff to hold Holocaust perpetrators accountable, in the wake of the breakup of the Soviet Union and the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe, as well as on the results achieved by "Operation: Last Chance." A French-language edition was published under the title Chasseur de nazis (Paris: Michel-Lafon) in late 2008, and a Serbian edition entitled Lovac na naciste (Belgrade: Zabor za udzbenika) appeared in November 2009.
His activities as a Nazi-hunter were the subject of four television documentaries. The first, entitled The Nazi-Hunter, was produced by ZDF(German Channel 2) in 1999; the second, entitled The Last Nazi-Hunter was produced by SWR (German Channel 1-regional station) in 2004; the third The Final Hunt for the Nazis by France Trois (Channel 3) was broadcast in December 2005; and the fourth The Search for Doctor Death, was produced by BBC in 2009. A fifth film, a full-length documentary by CNN, has been completed and is awaiting screening. In 1995 and 1996, Zuroff was invited to Rwanda to assist the local authorities in their efforts to bring to justice the perpetrators of the genocide which took place in that country in spring 1994, and he has served as an official advisor to the Rwandan government.
In recent years, Zuroff has lectured extensively to audiences all over the world regarding the efforts to bring Nazi war criminals to justice. During the years 1992-1999, he served in the Education Corps of the Israeli Defense Forces (reserves) and lectured to thousands of soldiers about his work as a Nazi-hunter.
