CHOICE ReviewThis volume focuses on the desperate efforts of tens of thousands of German and Austrian Jews to escape Nazi-dominated Europe through Portugal during the first years of WW II. A master historian of German Jewry, Kaplan (New York Univ.) reveals the history of hope and anxiety of Jewish refugees in flight and how the places they passed through "touched [their] inner lives" (p. 2). The complex fabric of their many individual stories is woven together from a broad array of intimate personal documents, memoirs and interviews, and notes and records from officials and relief workers. Through careful, creative analysis, the book evokes the emotions experienced by the hopeful and anxious Jews seeking to flee Europe. This is a moving and enlightening mosaic of experiences endured by the mostly Jewish fugitives headed for Lisbon, who are depicted as active agents seeking to determine their fate and that of their loved ones. This highly readable, accessible, and scholarly account is a model of creative yet rigorous research, combined with carefully evocative writing that will move and fascinate a broad readership. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readership levels. --Robert Moses Shapiro, Brooklyn College
