Follow Emeraux’s footsteps as he takes you on a journey through Bosnia-Herzegovina, Rwanda, Liberia, and Syria. In these complex investigations, he unveils the intricate web of geopolitical contexts and historical backgrounds that surround the alleged authors of crimes against humanity. Hours of meticulous analysis, cross-checking, and testimonies culminate in the pursuit of justice, often leading to long-awaited arrests, even years after the heinous acts were committed.

As you delve into the stories of Lejla, Désirée, Darius, Steve, and Nazim—individuals whose lives have been forever altered by the horrors of genocide—prepare to witness the fragility of humanity. Emeraux shines a light on the transformation of ordinary men into killers, driven by manipulative “identity entrepreneurs” who exploit fear and hatred to achieve their twisted goals.

Fortunately, Emeraux and the OCLCH are not alone in their mission. Together with specialized magistrates and a network of national and international organizations, they fight against impunity. They work tirelessly to repair the devastation caused by human beings who act in the name of ethnicity, religion, or nationalism.

In a world increasingly susceptible to the puppeteers of chaos, Emeraux’s book serves as a call to vigilance and lucidity. It reminds us of the paramount importance of verifying the benevolence, propriety, and common sense of our leaders before entrusting them with power. On an individual level, it urges us to break free from the chains of manipulation and maintain our own clarity of thought.

Hunting Monsters illuminates the urgent need to combat impunity in these troubled times. It urges us to stand united against those who seek to sow terror and destruction. Time may pass, but justice will endure. Join Colonel Eric Emeraux in his fight for justice and make a powerful statement against the perpetrators of evil.
