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.


Souad Mekhennet has covered radical Islamic movements since shortly after the 9/11 terror attacks. Currently a columnist for The Daily Beast, she has worked for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitun, The Washington Post, German television ZDF, and The New York Times, where she was one of two Times reporters who broke the story of Khaled el Masri’s rendition case. She is an associate at the Weatherhead Center at Harvard University and at the School for Advanced and International Studied (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University, and was selected as a 2014 Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum.
