Australia has not witnessed a scandal of the enormity exposed for the first time in this book. The appalling truth is that, after the Second World War, Australia gave safe haven to hundreds of Nazi war criminals from all over Europe, who hid among the legitimate refugees and victims of Nazism and arrived in Australia under post-war immigration schemes. Some of them were men who personally participated in the slaughter of thousands of innocent people. Others were collaborationist administrators at Nazi extermination camps or senior politicians who had overseen and implemented the Nazi Holocaust.

How was it possible for them to find sanctuary in Australia? Who were these people? What were their crimes? How did they manage to escape to Australia? What was the role played by Western intelligence agencies in securing their safe arrival here? Why did successive Australian administrations lie to the public about their presence, and refuse to co-operate with the continuing efforts of European governments to bring them to justice?

In this powerful, meticulously researched and documented book, Mark Aarons examines these questions in exhaustive detail. His conclusions are alarming, for not only were mass murderers permitted to live out peaceful and prosperous lives here, but the Australian Secret Intelligence Organisation actually recruited some of them and allowed local wings of their original fascist organisations to grow and flourish without interference. This immoral policy enabled the Australian branch of the Croatian Ustashi to make this country a major centre of their campaign of international terrorism.
