In 1945, at the end of World War II, Adolf Eichmann, the head of operations for the Nazis' Final Solution, walked into the mountains of Germany and vanished from view. Sixteen years later, an elite team of spies captured him at a bus stop in Argentina and smuggled him to Israel, resulting in one of the century's most important trials -- one that cemented the Holocaust in the public imagination. THE NAZI HUNTERS is the thrilling and fascinating story of what happened between these two events. Survivor Simon Wiesenthal opened Eichmann's case; a blind Argentinean and his teenage daughter provided crucial information. Finally, the Israeli spies -- many of whom lost family in the Holocaust -- embarked on their daring mission, recounted here in full. Based on the adult bestseller HUNTING EICHMANN, which is now in development as a major film, and illustrated with powerful photos throughout, THE NAZI HUNTERS is a can't-miss work of narrative nonfiction for middle-grade and YA readers.

"This is a cautionary tale. It serves not only as witness to the events of World War II, but as testimony to how rapidly our lives can collapse in the face of battling political forces, demagoguery and nationalist governments. It is not just a lesson in history it is a glorious story of resilience, strength, and hope. It is a terrific read that belongs in all libraries. For Hava Ben-Zvi is more than a wonderful writer. She is Eva Bromberg, the girl who lived."--Irene E. McDermott, City Librarian, Crowell Library, City of San Marino "Hava Ben-Zvi revisits her childhood experiences with courage, honesty and humility. By taking us through the war and the later years rebuilding their lives in Israel and later California, this work is a testament to the human spirit and to the courage of those whose choices helped them survive. As survivors, Hava and Ephraim show us two different experiences bonded in love and with a commitment for future generations to create a more peaceful and just world. This is an inspirational story, which will bear witness, and educate about the power of empathy and standing up to hate."--Marti Tippens Murphy, Executive Director, Facing History and Ourselves, Memphis. Hava (Eva) Bromberg and Ephraim Sokal were Jewish teenagers in Poland when the Nazis invaded in 1939. Hiding in plain sight, Bromberg lived among the non-Jewish Polish population, always in danger of discovery or betrayal. Sokal and his family were deported as "enemies of the people" when the Russians occupied eastern Poland--a calamity that saved their lives. Liberated by the 1941 Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, Sokal fought the Germans, serving with the Polish Navy and British armed forces. Bromberg and Sokal met in 1947, both facing the challenges of surviving in a postwar world they were unprepared for. This combined memoir tells their story of resilience.

RED MUTINY tells how the sailors of Imperial Russia's newest and most powerful battleship, POTEMKIN, seized control and flew the red flag of revolution in June 1905. It is a tale of dramatic adventure, naval battles, heroic sacrifices, treachery and intrigue at the court of the last Tsar. A dedicated band of revolutionaries inspire and lead the sailors to overthrow their tyrannical officers, but the POTEMKIN finds itself steaming around the Black Sea with the rest of the fleet in pursuit. Hunted from port to port, the mutineers enter Odessa, sparking a bloody insurrection (made famous by Eisenstein's film) and bringing Imperial Russia to its knees. As Lenin and many others recognised at the time, this was the key event that would make the Russian revolution possible. The political consequences of this mutiny were profound, but the author concentrates on the individuals involved in these dramatic events: it is a brilliantly realised, cinematic treatment that really brings the story to life.
