In the Name of Humanity
Written by Max Wallace
Published by Allen Lane Canada / Penguin Random House Canada


As World War II drew to a close, Hitler intended further mass slaughter while other Nazi leaders scrambled to cover up evidence of genocide. Max Wallace’s gripping account of the tense endgame of the Nazi nightmare is told in meticulous detail and with great compassion, culminating in the astonishing story of a Jewish freedom fighter bargaining for the salvation of the survivors with the devil himself, the architect of the killing camps, Heinrich Himmler.


In the Name of Humanity is a wonderfully engrossing example of hidden history, in which Max Wallace’s superb research skills of digging up long lost documentation and crafting it into a highly readable book, has brought to life a much-forgotten chapter in the history of the Holocaust.”
