The Eternal Nazi: A World Policy Salon with Souad Mekhennet

Dr. Aribert Heim used the postwar chaos to slip away from his dark past at the Mauthausen concentration camp and establish himself as a reputable doctor and family man in the resort town of Baden-Baden. When he got word that his cover had been blown, he fled, inspiring an international manhunt.

In The Eternal Nazi, Nicholas Kulish and Souad Mekhennet reveal for the first time the doctor’s labyrinthine escape and how he evaded capture by living in a working-class neighborhood of Cairo -praying in Arabic and beloved by an adopted Muslim family. It tells of Germans who were unwilling to let Nazi war criminals go unpunished, whose quests took them across Europe and across decades.

In this World Policy Salon, co-author Souad Mekhennet, a German journalist of Turkish-Moroccan descent, discusses a nation’s dramatic reckoning with its past.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Souad Mekhennet has covered radical Islamic movements since shortly after the 9/11 terror attacks.
