Published in association with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, bestselling author Michael Dobbs presents a riveting story of Jewish families seeking to escape Nazi Germany. Drawing on previously unpublished letters, diaries, interviews, and visa records, Dobbs provides an illuminating account of America’s response to the refugee crisis of the 1930s and 1940s, focusing on a small village on the edge of the Black Forest whose Jewish families desperately pursued American visas to flee the Nazis.
