Flight from the Reich
Refugee Jews, 1933–1946
“An impressive and rich book that provides much-needed
attention to Hitler’s other victims.”—Jewish Book World
As persecution, war, and deportation savaged their communities, Jews tried to flee Nazi Europe through both legal and clandestine routes. In this riveting tale of Jewish refugees during and after the Nazi era, Debórah Dwork and Robert Jan van Pelt thread together official papers and personal accounts to weave the history of refugees’ lives into the history of the Holocaust.
