The book Wiesenthal is my way of paying tribute to a man who dedicated his life to justice and the prevention of genocide.
Simon Wiesenthal was a Jewish Holocaust survivor who became internationally famous for relentlessly pursuing and bringing to justice over 1,100 Nazi war criminals. He is best known for his role in the capture of Adolf Eichmann, the architect of the ‘Final Solution.’ On the day of his retirement, Simon Wiesenthal invites one last group of students into his office. With warmth, wit and surprising humor the famed “Nazi Hunter” recounts how he tracked down history’s most notorious killers, warning his young friends that although progress has been made since WWII, the human savage still lurks just below this wafer-thin veil of civilization. Included with the full play script of this riveting drama is a complete study guide, production photographs, and book club questions.

Simon Wiesenthal, history’s most successful pursuer of Nazis, bringing over 1,100 criminals to justice, lives again in Dugan’s talented hands. “Wiesenthal” is based on the one-man play Dugan has been performing around North America since 2009.
“His entire career was about the future, not the past,” he said, “how the lessons we have learned from the Holocaust must be applied today.
“The most important message is that people cannot understand the evil that the Nazis represented until they can recognize the potential for evil in themselves. That is tough for people to swallow.”
Dugan said teaching was a crucial Wiesenthal contribution to society. “Nazi hunting was heroic and necessary,” he acknowledged. “But as a teacher of the psychology of man, and of sociology, that was Wiesenthal’s most valuable legacy. (Right: Tom Dugan as Simon Wiesenthal)

This Book will Remain in your Heart
Publisher Deborah Herman of Bashert Books Press a division of Micro Publishing Media, attended a performance of Wiesenthal in New York years before publishing it as a book.
“I was so taken by the story and performance,” Herman says, “that I went up to Tom after the show and handed him my card. At least two years went by and the pandemic hit so Tom was unable to perform the play on the road. So we decided to keep it in the hands of the audience in book form. I couldn’t be happier with the result.”
