Editorial Reviews

Review

“A captivating, remarkably well-documented book that tells the little-known story of German Jews deported by the Nazis to unoccupied France in October 1940. Shuttled from one terrible camp to another, they desperately sought American visas to avoid an even more awful fate, deportation to the East. The author keeps the reader breathless as he relates, with great precision, the history of U.S. diplomacy toward the Jews of the Third Reich. I know this subject intimately, yet I read this book in one sitting, without skipping a line. A great achievement!.” —Serge Klarsfeld, Historian and Nazi Hunter
 
“A heartbreaking and timely read. . . . [Dobbs has] a reporter's eye for narrative and a historian's attention to detail and context. . . . He follows these Jewish families through harrowing cycles of deportation and desperation as they attempt to flee to safety.” —The Washington Post

“[W]eaves a devastating tapestry of too many hopes wrecked and too few lives saved. . . . [Dobbs] chronicles in meticulous, suspenseful detail the desperate perseverance of one Kippenheim family after another to find an escape from Nazi Europe.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Too often when we speak of atrocities, mass murder, crimes against humanity, or genocide we think in terms of hundreds of thousands, if not millions. The Unwanted reminds us that the victims of each atrocity are individuals with their own story and their own particular tragedy. Michael Dobbs has written a compelling history of the Jewish community of one town. We come to know these individuals in a deeply personal way. He brings us into their lives and we experience their desperate struggle to survive at a time when they were abandoned by the world.” Deborah E. Lipstadt, Ph.D., author of Antisemitism Here and Now

“Michael Dobbs has written a moving and powerful book that delves into detailed historical records of a single German town to offer a vivid portrait of the human costs of Nazi antisemitism and the tragic consequences of an unresponsive refugee policy. A compelling read for anyone concerned about the effects of refugee policy in the face of contemporary episodes of persecution and ethnic violence.” Michael Chertoff, U.S. Secretary for Homeland Security, 2005–2009

As a former Washington Post reporter who covered the collapse of communism, I have long been fascinated by historical turning points. How a political leader confronts the gravest challenges of modern times, and how his decisions affect the rest of us, is a recurring theme of my seven books.

One Minute to Midnight focused on possibly the gravest crisis ever, in October 1962, when John F. Kennedy stepped back from the nuclear brink at the last possible moment. The Unwanted looked at Franklin Roosevelt's handling of the Jewish refugee crisis that preceded the Holocaust. Six Months in 1945 examined how FDR and Truman negotiated the perilous transition from World War to Cold War. My latest book, King Richard, relates the Shakespearean tale of the self-made man who scrambled his way to the top only to see his dreams turn to nightmares because of tragic character flaws.
