Editorial Reviews

Review

“A riveting tale of the previously unknown and fascinating story of the unsung angels who strove to foil the Final Solution.”—Kirkus starred review

“This fascinating, largely untold account shows how an unlikely confluence of people and events saved the lives of a remnant of surviving European Jews.”—Booklist

"The dramatic, formidably researched true story of the secret negotiations that ended the “Final Solution” and saved thousands of Jews near the end of World War II. Max Wallace’s book deserves a place among Holocaust historians and should change some of the assumptions around the end of the Holocaust.”—Anna Porter, author of Kasztner’s Train and Ghosts of Europe

"Startlingly novel...examines the Holocaust from an angle most people have not had much opportunity to take...not just the familiar historical narrative of Nazi persecution ramping up into genocide, but how the world reacted to it.“—Maclean's

"This book is an impressive piece of scholarship and a very compelling chapter of Holocaust history.”—Canadian Jewish News

“Through exhaustive research and interviews, Max Wallace has uncovered an astounding story of resourcefulness, tact, and boldness by the unlikeliest of heroes and heroines. Their efforts at the end of World War II saved perhaps tens of thousands of Jewish lives. In the Name of Humanity is a remarkable work of scholarship, and a welcome and important addition to Holocaust history.”—Anthony S. Pitch, author of Our Crime Was Being Jewish

"A wonderfully engrossing example of hidden history."—Montreal Times

“It has been a pleasure watching Skyhorse Publishing develop into one of the largest and fastest-growing independent publishers over the last decade. Trident does a good deal of business with Skyhorse. Skyhorse has become a cornerstone of independent publishing and has taken its rightful seat in the world of major trade publishing.”
–Robert Gottlieb, chairman of Trident Media Group, LLC
