As the Nazi regime intensified its persecution of its Jewish citizens, many turned to relatives abroad for help in escaping. This extraordinary collection of letters, now housed in the American Jewish Committee Archives, tells of one family’s appeals to a cousin in the United States. It is a riveting tale of bureaucratic obstruction, hostile immigration authorities, French internment camps, and an ordinary American Jew, struggling to keep his business afloat, faced with a tragedy beyond his comprehension.
