Last week, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Eric Lichtblau spoke at Harvard Law School about his disturbing new book, “The Nazi’s Next Door: How America Became a Safe Haven for Hitler’s Men.”
The book explores how thousands of Nazis — from concentration camp guards to high-level officers in the Third Reich — came to the United States after World War II and quietly settled into new lives. Lichtblau’s research uncovered new evidence of how these self-styled war “refugees,” with the help and protection from the U.S. government, were put to work as spies, scientists and engineers. His book also examines how holocaust survivors were treated (not well) in the U.S. and the deep anti-semitism of General George Patton.
The event was not recorded, but here is a video of one of his recent talks.
