Nazi Hunters: Commander of Treblinka
Few war criminals were as important to Simon Wiesenthal, historys most famous Nazi hunter, as Franz Stangl and Gustav Wagner. Stangl acted as SS commandant and Wagner as deputy commandant of the Sobibor and Treblinka extermination camps in Poland, where more than one million people were murdered. Nazi Hunters: Commander of Treblinka traces the chain of events that led to the guilty verdict of Franz Stangl and the unexpected bombshell confession that put Wiesenthal on the hunt for Wagner.
