Hunting the Truth: Memoirs of Beate and Serge Klarsfeld by Beate and Serge Klarsfeld (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)

Serge and Beate Klarsfeld, two prominent French Nazi hunters, won the Jewish Book Council’s top national book award yesterday.

Hunting the Truth: Memoirs of Serge and Beate Klarsfeld includes first person accounts of the couple’s 50-plus years of pursuing Nazi war criminals. The Jewish Book Council noted that the Klarsfelds were hesitant at first to work on an autobiography, saying they lacked “talent for storytelling,” but were pleased with the final product.
