The shocking story of
how America became one of the world’s safest postwar havens for Nazis
Until recently, historians believed America gave asylum only
to key Nazi scientists after World War II, along with some less famous
perpetrators who managed to sneak in and who were eventually exposed by Nazi
hunters. But the truth is much worse, and has been covered up for decades: the
CIA and FBI brought thousands of perpetrators to America as possible assets
against their new Cold War enemies. When the Justice Department finally
investigated and learned the truth, the results were classified and buried.
Using the dramatic story of one former perpetrator who
settled in New Jersey, conned the CIA into hiring him, and begged for the
agency’s support when his wartime identity emerged, Eric Lichtblau tells the
full, shocking story of how America became a refuge for hundreds of postwar
Nazis. Download and start listening now!
