Hanns and Rudolf

The True Story of the German Jew Who Tracked Down and Caught the Kommandant of Auschwitz


The untold story ofthe man who brought a mastermind of the final solution to justice

May 1945. In the aftermath of the Second World War, thefirst British War Crimes Investigation Team is assembled to hunt down thesenior Nazi officials responsible for the greatest atrocities the world hasever seen. One of the lead investigators is Lieutenant Hanns Alexander, aGerman Jew who is now serving in the British Army. Rudolf Höss is his mostelusive target. As kommandant of Auschwitz, Höss not only oversaw the murder ofmore than one million men, women, and children, he was the man who perfected Hitler’sprogram of mass extermination. Höss is on the run across a continent in ruins,the one man whose testimony can ensure justice at Nuremberg.

Hanns and Rudolf reveals for the very first time the full, exhilaratingaccount of Höss’ capture, an encounter with repercussions that echo to thisday. Moving from the Middle Eastern campaigns of the First World War tobohemian Berlin in the 1920s to the horror of the concentration camps and thetrials in Belsen and Nuremberg, it tells the story of two German men—oneJewish, one Catholic—whose lives diverged and intersected in an astonishingway.
