As Russian forces closed in on Berlin, and Hitler’s premiership drew to a close, many Nazi officials fled Germany. In this startling, meticulously researched account, acclaimed journalist Uki Goni unravels the complex network that led them to Argentina. Relying on international support – in Scandinavia, Switzerland and Italy – and the enthusiasm of the Vatican and President Juan Peron, Goni shows how this ‘ratline’ allowed Adolf Eichmann – the architect of the ‘Final Solution’ – Josef Mengele, Erich Priebke, and many more, into the country.

Both riveting and rigorous, this remarkable investigation sheds vital light on both a disquieting episode in Europe’s history, and the ties between Argentinian Catholic Nationalism and Fascist movements in Europe.
