The Dramatic Story of the Pact Between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine, 25th Anniversary Edition
by Edwin Black
The Transfer Agreement is Edwin Black's compelling, award-winning story of a negotiated arrangement in 1933 between Zionist organizations and the Nazis to transfer some 50,000 Jews plus and $100 million of their assets, to Jewish Palestine in exchange for stopping the worldwide Jewish-led boycott threatening to topple the Hitler regime in its first year. It was originally published in 1984, and was updated in 2009 with a 25th anniversary edition.
HISTORICAL JOURNALISM AT ITS BEST. Black has authored an exhaustive, compelling, well-written and edited work. It is historical journalism at its best.
– Alexander Zvielli, Jerusalem Post
OVERWHELMING AND COHESIVE. Edwin Black’s research is striking in its dimension and scope. The vast uncovering of source material and its extensive use are almost overwhelming. He succeeds in crystallizing the various aspects of an almost worldwide problem into fluid and cohesive analysis.
– Yoav Gelber, Yad Vashem
SPELLBINDING. A spellbinding, exciting book exploring new dramatic facets. Despite the voluminous literature on the Third Reich, Mandate Palestine, modern Zionism and the Holocaust, this subject had not been previously explored. It adds a significant new dimension to our understanding of this critical period.
– Sybil Milton, Simon Wiesenthal Center
METICULOUS, ESSENTIAL. Black… has meticulously documented this obscure but important slice of world history… makes an essential contribution to an understanding of Israeli politics and the strife in the Middle East today.
– Gladwyn Hill, Los Angeles Times
A PAINFUL CHAPTER. A struggle to write a painful chapter in Jewish history. What Black began uncovering was a tangled account of an anguished moment in history, one that he at the center had to piece together from… forgotten archives, newspapers from the pre-WWII era, and government records.
– Jan Cawley, Chicago Tribune Magazine
HELPS UNDERSTANDING. In the hands of a different writer, this material … could have formed a much different story, damning Zionism and the State of Israel… It does not. Black is trying to increase our understanding and appreciation of what we have in the Jewish State of Israel and at what hidden costs.
– Larry Cohler, Long Island Jewish World
