   schema:description "Sixty years after the end of World War II, members of the Nazi party and their collaborators are still alive - and are increasingly difficult track down. And the clock is ticking. But Efraim Zuroff will not give up. In 2002, Zuroff launched a vast campaign called Operation Last Chance to find the biggest Nazi criminals, before it's too late. He placed advertisements around the world, in newspapers, magazines, newsletters, and local publications offering a reward to anyone who had information. Six years later, in spite of the relentless passing of time, the opposition of many governments, and even death threats, Zuroff was able to list the names of 488 criminals who are alive and at large. Combining the thrill of a detective story with the inherent poignancy of WWII history, Operation Last Chance delivers the important and moving story of one man's efforts to bring criminals to justice." ;
