Library Journal Review

The voluminous correspondence of the Kaufmann-Steinberg family-among siblings Marianne, Loti, and Kurt, as well as with their mother and aunt (whom the children referred to as "their parents")-provides a treasure trove of information about how a German Jewish family attempted to survive the Nazis. Boehling (history, Univ. of Maryland, Baltimore) and Larkey (German studies, Goucher Coll.) are at their best when integrating the individual experiences into the wider narrative of Nazi anti-Semitic policy, war, and Holocaust. Their analysis of the emotional challenges faced by the siblings as they chose to leave Germany, two going to Palestine and one to the United States, never to see their parents again, along with the stress of adapting to their new conditions is penetrating. Particularly heartbreaking is how economic stress, geographic distance, and the long time between communications diminished formerly strong sibling bonds. VERDICT Directed at the general reader, the author's explanation of where the Kaufmann-Steinberg story is typical or atypical of the German Jewish experience is well done. The book, however, periodically suffers from repetition and sometimes poor organization on the paragraph level. Nonetheless, recommended for all interested readers and specialists.-Frederic Krome, Univ. of Cincinnati Clermont Coll. (c) Copyright 2011.
