December Meeting

Hanns and RudolfFor our book club meeting on Wed 4th Dec, we read Hanns and Rudolf by Thomas Harding.

Jacket Synopsis:
In the aftermath of the Second World War, the first British War Crimes Investigation Team is assembled to hunt down the senior Nazi officials responsible for the greatest atrocities the world has ever seen. Lieutenant Hanns Alexander is one of the lead investigators, Rudolf Höss his most elusive target.

In Hanns and Rudolf, Thomas Harding reveals for the very first time the full, exhilarating account of Höss’ capture and of two lives that diverged, and intersected in an astonishing way. Moving from the Middle-Eastern campaigns of the First World War to bohemian Berlin in the 1920s; from the horror of the concentration camps to the trials in Belsen and Nuremberg, it is both a gripping, moving and deeply felt work of history, and the story of a remarkable quest for justice.
