It was only at his great-uncle’s funeral that Thomas Harding learned of his German relative’s extraordinary past. Hanns Alexander, an officer in the British army, was the man who tracked down and helped bring to justice the Commandant of Auschwitz. Harding tells for the first time the story of the capture of Rudolf Höss at the end of World War II by the German-born Jew.  Hanns and Rudolf is an astonishing tale of parallel and intersecting lives.
