Beschreibung

This is a unique generational history of the young people whose lives were irrevocably shaped by the rise of the Nazis. Half a million Jews lived in Germany when Hitler came to power in 1933. Over the next decade, thousands would flee. Among these refugees, teens and young adults formed a remarkable generation. They were old enough to appreciate the loss of their homeland and the experience of flight, but often young and flexible enough to survive and even flourish in new environments. This generation has produced such disparate figures as Henry Kissinger and "Dr. Ruth" Westheimer. Laqueur has drawn on interviews, published and unpublished memoirs and his own experiences as a member of this group of refugees to paint a vivid and moving portrait of "Generation Exodus."

"Laqueur draws on dozens of published and unpublished memoirs...the detail is always vivid and well chosen, sometimes very moving... no one could read this book without increased admiration for 'generation exodus'." -Matthew Reisz, Jewish Chronicle
