Absolutely frightening...

For those who believe that the Nazi atrocities and the rise of Hitler are impossible in our time, "In Hitler's Shadow" summons a monumental wake-up call. The book follows the true story of Yaron Svoray, a former paratrooper in the Israeli Defense Force and detective in Israel's Central Police Command. While on a personal hunt for hidden World War II treasure in Germany in September 1992, he stumbles across a neo-Nazi contact who introduces him to an old SS officer who served at Buchenwald concentration camp. Returning home, Svoray decides to go uncover as a journalist and explore the German underground of National Socialism. What he found will profoundly disturb you, and Svoray has taped conversations and pictures to back up his story. Posing as a right-wing journalist from America, Svoray infiltrates the darkest depths of the modern Nazi Party, proving that the Nazis never went away, they simply moved underground. Along the way, he befriends a number of committed Nazis, some of them members of the European Parliament, some of them office holders in city governments, and all of them with their eyes on the Reichstag and the Chancellorship of Germany.This book will mesmerize you because it reads like a spy-thriller, yet it's a true story with no names changed! All those who cherish freedom and loathe bigotry and racism need to read this book. It will remind us all of the personal role we must play in making sure that the horrors of the Holocaust are "never again"...Britt Gillette...


When I was a senior in college, I had the distinct pleasure of attending one of Svoray's lectures and meeting him afterwards. As soon as I could get my hands on it, I bought a copy of "In Hitler's Shadow." Whether or not you have seen the HBO film, "The Infiltrator," which is based on this book, you should buy the book. Those who have not seen it will benefit from learning about this brave Israeli's heroic infiltration of Germany's growing neo-Nazi movement, and their apathetic response to what Svoray uncovered. Those who have seen the movie were not done justice--the book is far better. Learn just how scary the neo-Nazi movement is, how it has begun its rise once again, and how far reaching it is in society.

Outstanding, truly engrossing

Recently, heard the author speak at my college and I was on the edge of my seat. At a monthly, mandatory convocation, during which most snooze, this man not only had our full attention, he left us all wanting to know more. During his talk he told of the many horrors he encountered in his time in Germany. There were times he made us laugh and at others we cried. At the end he recieved a standing ovation. I am planning on buying his book right now since I am unable to forget this compelling story.

A shocking but sobering book that tells you evil is NOT dead

I wish I could say enough about this book but I am constrained by space and time. This book has the feel of a fictionized tale. It is almost too easy to dismiss as a fraud since it seems so unreal. When one reads the book they find themselves immersed in the story of a man's journey into the very heart of evil..for what he finds is non other than the love child of the 3rd Reich. The pictures contained therin allow the author not only the supreme pleasure of saying a personal : "F*** ***!" ( with such emphasis as only a Jew in the depths of such evil could say ) to these Nazi's but they add a dimension to the book so real you cannot deny the facts. For a particular chill..check out the picture of the young neo-nazi (face only picture) and stare at it..this could be my brother if looks said anything. Seeing these people through their OWN eyes and as an accomplish to their crimes is ... hard to explain. BUY THIS BOOK.

Fascinating (and dangerous) journey into German Neo-Nazism

The author of the book, a Jew and former Israeli paratrooper, took the unbelievable plunge into the world of German neo-Nazism. Far from being dead after the collapse of the Third Reich, Nazism is still alive in the fatherland and is yearning for a come-back. This book chronicles the unbelievable journey Svoray took into the heart of the modern Nazi movement. Yaron Svoray deserves a medal for bravery because of the extremely dangerous assignment he undertook. Because of his courage, the world has been given an urgent warning about the viper that sits curled under its table.
