In 1990, in a drafty basement of the Central Ministry of the Interior in Prague, an American historian named Peter Black made a startling discovery: a dusty Nazi roster from 1944 kept hidden from the western world for nearly five decades. The single document helped unravel one of... the most skillful mass murder operations in world history. In the obscure Polish village of Trawniki, top Nazi leaders built a training camp for murder and then recruited a roving army of brutal foot soldiers, 5,000 men strong, that ultimately helped the SS annihilate the Jewish population of occupied Poland. Black was no ordinary historian. Employed by a little-known unit inside the U.S. Department of Justice, he and his colleagues were racing against time to find the men who had taken part in these atrocities, only to flee to cities and suburbs across America after the war, hiding in plain sight. Citizen 865 is the exclusive, definitive account of this unheralded team of government historians-turned-Nazi investigators who uncovered one of the last great secrets of the Third Reich and then relentlessly pursued the men who were part of it. The story spans 75 years and four countries, from small towns deep inside Poland to Washington, D.C., where Black and his unlikely team worked on a shoestring budget to bring to justice some of the last living perpetrators of the Holocaust.
