Impeccably researched and engagingly written, this book is sure to make waves, both within the public at large and among advocacy groups on both sides of the war crimes issue.


Is Canada a haven for Nazi war criminals? War crimes advocacy groups, the media, and even a royal commission have suggested it is. Margolian challenges that theory, disproving accusations of government indifference and complicity to lay the blame where it belongs-on the war criminals themselves. Impeccably researched and engagingly written, this book is sure to make waves, both within the public at large and among advocacy groups on both sides of the war crimes issue.

Canada is a haven for Nazi war criminals. This accusation - first levelled by war crimes advocacy groups, later corroborated by a royal commission, now reported as fact by major media outlets - has become the gospel of politically-correct commentators and pundits. But is it true?

In Unauthorized Entry, Howard Margolian argues convincingly that it is not. On the basis of the most thorough examination of Canada's immigration-screening system ever undertaken, he absolves a succession of postwar governments of active complicity in the admission of ex-Nazis. Charges that Ottawa was indifferent to the problem are similarly discounted. In a refreshing and controversial departure from the conspiracy theories and the culture of historical victimization so prevalent nowadays, Margolian lays the blame where it belongs - on the war criminals themselves.
