I read this back in 1998, but I'd learned about the German Neo-Nazi movement in 1990, soon after the Berlin Wall came down. It was a favorite topic for the BBC, who love showing the negative side of life. But then again, so do most news services.

Svoray stumbled on this movement while treasure hunting, and writes a blow-by-blow account of his forays into the far-right world. But I can't give him as much credit as he expects. He definitely risked his life by going undercover into the far-right groups and befriending their members, but they weren't exactly secret. The characters, like Heinz Reiss, weren't hiding their beliefs. The part where he gets to visit the training camp was scary, however. It shows how the German police were completely unaware of what was going on.

IN HITLER"S SHADOW also shows you something about Germany's attitude towards Hitler and the Holocaust. It seems that Germany's people somehow erased it from their collective memory. I've encountered many Germans, born after 1945, who truly know nothing about the Holocaust. But consider this; if German high-school history textbooks made no mention of the Death Camps, and the parents never talked about it, how would young Germans know what happened?

I've met countless Holocaust survivors who are angry about what they perceive as Germany's "ignorance." But is it possible that Germany's leaders simply have no idea what to do?

When Neo-Nazi's burned a German immigrant housing center in 1990, the authorities did almost nothing. If they had learned about the Holocaust, and understood the Nazi's xenophobic ideology, then they would've taken it more seriously.

Today, Germany has a population of young people, descended from foreign "guest workers", and these youths are a recruiting pool for Al-Queda. It shows what happens when your country forgets its past.

Svoray's book has an interesting concept of an Israeli man taking up the challenge and going into the midst of the Neo-Nazism movement in Germany, putting his life in danger. However, his book does not really have much depth. It is more descriptive than anything else, and doesn't explore what is more importannt -- the reason why Nazism has been able to flourish even after the horrors of the Holocaust have been revealed. The characters he meets are also unreal, there's the extreme of the totally anti-Nazi students, and the other extreme, the right-wing haters of diversity and anything un-German. After awhile, everyone you encounter in the book -- even the people in Yad Vashem -- come off as character types, rather than real people. Svoray also comes across as self-congratulatory, like, WOW, I HAVE DONE SUCH A BIG THING, I SHOULD BE HAILED AS A HERO. If revealing Neo-Nazism and its pervasiveness in present Germany is his purpose, then perhaps he should cut the posturing. An OK book for superficial facts, but other books would have to be consulted on deeper significance behind the German psyche, the sense of dislocation after reunitfication (some say annexation) and the success of the Neo-Nazi movement.

This is not a serious expose of the Neo-Nazi movement in Germany, it's simply a play by play of Savoray's adventures within the movement, and it doesn't even do that very well.
It's easy reading, I'll give it that, in fact it reads like a dime store spy novel. Nothing wrong with that, I suppose, and maybe it's even based on real events, although the word for word exchanges stretch credibility pretty far. Those looking for mind candy should consider it, but those looking to learn about the actions and motivations of Neo Nazi's should look elsewhere.

I saw this fellow speak about his supposed experiences with German Neo-Nazis at Kenyon College in 1999 and he was a very effective and highly impassioned speaker. At the time I was impressed. As I look back on the experience now, however, I feel emotionally manipulated. Must everything be as melodramatic as a Hollywood movie?

The relation of his climactic moment with the snuff film reminds me of a bow on a neatly-wrapped package. Too convenient, in my opinion. The implication that watching children murdered is the ultimate extension of an interest in Nationalism is ridiculous.

He just chose to pursue the most twisted people he could find, without giving any objective information on the vast majority of moderate Nationalists.

Recently, heard the author speak at my college and I was on the edge of my seat. At a monthly, mandatory convocation, during which most snooze, this man not only had our full attention, he left us all wanting to know more. During his talk he told of the many horrors he encountered in his time in Germany. There were times he made us laugh and at others we cried. At the end he recieved a standing ovation. I am planning on buying his book right now since I am unable to forget this compelling story.
