Doctor Josef Mengele selected thousands for the gas chambers on the platform of the train station at the Auschwitz death camp. The survivors called him the Angel of Death. He was brilliant, urbane and charming, and he performed vivisection on the prisoners he spared from the Zyklon B. Then he spent forty years being hunted.
Although once in the hands of the U. S. Army, Mengele was never charged with war crimes. He moved about with the help of dozens of people, sometime unwittingly though often knowing full well who he was, and he evaded the scores of professional Nazi hunter and spies for forty years even though his wife's name was in the phone book. The stories told about him by the Simon Wiesenthal and the other pursuers grew in proportion to the years that they searched for him as did his fear and sense of isolation as well as the price on his head.
