Summary:
Is Canada a haven for Nazi war criminals? War crimes advocacy groups, the media, and even a royal commission have suggested it is. Margolian challenges that theory, disproving accusations of government indifference and complicity to lay the blame where it belongs-on the war criminals themselves. Impeccably researched and engagingly written, this book is sure to make waves, both within the public at large and among advocacy groups on both sides of the war crimes issue.
