In this episode Matt Crawford speaks with historian and author Daniel Lee about his book The S.S Officer's Armchair. This is an unbelievable story about hidden S.S documents found in a chair sent for reupholstering. Lee tracks down who these documents belonged to and finds his living relatives. This is a story not of the monsters of the Nazi party but of the everyday workers that kept that machine moving that most of us have given little thought to. A true detective story with twists and turns, this is a hard book to put down.
