SummaryReprint of the 1983 book by the Canadian investigative reporter Sol Littman. Littman describes life within and the final liquidation of the Kovno ghetto (Kaunas, Lithuania) during the Second World War. He also describes the search, hunt, and extradition proceedings of Helmut Rauca, one of the main Nazi perpetrators in the murders of the Jews of the Kovno ghetto. Littman raises difficult questions about the role played by the Canadian Government in allowing Rauca and other suspected war criminals to find safe haven within Canada. JewishGen
