Drawing on Nazi documents and previously undisclosed government records, Citizen 865 is a definitive account of the hunt for Nazi killers living openly in neighborhoods across the U.S. During a dinner party in Washington D.C., Debbie Cenziper first learnt of the Office of Special Investigations (OSI), a small unit inside the Department of Justice tasked with prosecuting Nazi war criminals who fled to the U.S. after World War II. The story spans 75 years, from the Holocaust to present day, and perhaps beyond. The last OSI defendant ordered deported from U.S. soil was sent back to Germany just last year while the organization, under a new name, continues tracking war criminals who have slipped into the U.S. from new hot spots around the world.

Cenziper is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and nonfiction author. She is a contributing reporter for the investigative team at The Washington Post and is the director of investigative journalism at the Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism.
