‘Nazi hunter’ to speak soon in Johns Creek

Efraim Zuroff is a Nazi hunter.

This is a real profession, not just something out of a movie. There’s even a Wikipedia page for it. Nazi hunters are people who track down and gather information on alleged former Nazis and others who were involved with the Holocaust in order to publicly identify them or bring them to justice.

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, Zuroff is coming to north Fulton County to deliver a lecture on his life at a Nazi hunter. He will be speaking at the Chabad of North Fulton on Jones Bridge Road in Johns Creek at 7:30 p.m.

Zurhoff, 70, was born in New York, but has worked in Jerusalem for many years. He is a historian and the director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Jerusalem, and also serves as the center’s coordinator of research on Nazi war crimes.

He is also the author of the annual “Status Report” on the worldwide investigation and prosecution of Nazi war criminals, which includes a list of the most-wanted Nazi war criminals. His articles have also been published in the Los Angeles Times and the Boston Globe. In 2008, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

According to a Patch community post on the event, Zuroff will talk about how he became a Nazi hunter, how he hunts Nazis today and what he has learned. He has been a Nazi hunter for 36 years.

Admission to the lecture is $10. For information about the event, visit chabadnf.org.
