Summary: Now in paperback, Hitler's Exiles is at once a moving human document and a new classic of the literature of exile.
Hailed by David Rieff as "fascinating, important, and heart-rending," Hitler's Exiles features nearly fifty first-person accounts of the flight from Hitler's Germany to America, many published for the first time. From forgotten archives and obscure published sources, Hitler's Exiles recaptures the unknown voices of that perilous tim ...show moree by focusing on the ordinary people who underwent a most extraordinary voyage. Anderson also includes little-known writings by such major figures as Thomas Mann, Hannah Arendt, and Bertolt Brecht.
A new preface written for this paperback edition discusses the outpouring of emotion and memory the book has generated, and includes several moving letters from relatives of those in the book.
