A rare insight into how refugees from Nazi Germany kept their communities alive throughout the world through postcards and letters. The Jewish flight from Nazi Germany was one of the largest diasporas the world has ever seen. Imagine leaving everything you love behind you and being separated from your family and friends without knowing when or if you will ever see them again. The only lifeline these refugees had was short postcards and letters to let each other know they were still alive. Many of these were sent from internment camps which were established worldwide to deal with the overwhelming number of asylum seekers. Fleeing the Führer is a unique collection of correspondence that shows the incredible nature of this worldwide emigration and the indomitable spirit of these Jewish refugees. Each postcard is reproduced in full color, making this a fascinating resource for the general reader, as well as those interested in Jewish history or postal history.
