Riveting . . . absorbing . . . As their memoirs make clear, these militants of memory never lost sight of their goal. --Benjamin Balint, The Wall Street Journal Exceptionally relevant . . . an awe-inspiring account of one couple's relentless pursuit of Nazi criminals . . . The Klarsfelds are reluctant memoirists, Serge explains, but their fidelity to accuracy and their humility regarding monumental triumphs of justice serve as urgent messages to us all. --Elizabeth Rosner, San Francisco Chronicle Assertive . . . Hunting the Truth] helps us understand how these two otherwise ordinary individuals--a nonobservant Jewish Frenchman and a gentile German woman--came to devote themselves with such single-minded daring to the cause of achieving both justice and commemoration for the French victims of the Holocaust . . . The Klarsfelds' success has been undeniable. --Robert O. Paxton, The New York Review of Books Hunting the Truth is an important book, with an immeasurable educational value. At the narrative level, the authors have written a history primer about the unimaginable cruelty of the Nazis and their willing French collaborators, whom the Klarsfelds helped bring to justice. Alongside the narrative stratum, however, they have compiled a moving treatise based upon their personal experiences. --Mordechai Ben-Dat, The Canadian Jewish News A riveting record . . .

The Klarsfelds will be remembered for their emphasis on using the legal system to try the perpetrators of the Holocaust and to prevent their rehabilitation as honored citizens. --American Thinker
