Love, Lies and Nazis
SS Brigadeführer Otto Freiherr von Wächter presided over a WW2 authority on whose territory hundreds of thousands of Jews and Poles were killed, including the family of the author’s grandfather. While preparing to travel to Argentina on the “ratline” he died unexpectedly in 1949, a few days after spending a weekend with an “old comrade”. Sands highly readable tale is part detective story, part thriller, part love story and also a story of friendship.
