Overview

The Transfer Agreement is the stunning, compassionate account of the "deal with the devil" that saved 60,000 Jews from the Holocaust. The deal was made in desperation in 1933 between the Jewish leadership in Palestine and the Third Reich. The terms: that the Jewish-led boycott of German goods would cease in return for the transfer of German Jews to the Holy Land. Eventually one-tenth of Germany's Jews were saved, thus helping to form the seedbed of modern Israel.. "Edwin Black reveals for the first time the inside details of the controversial pact and recreates the drama: the personalities, the cliff-hanger negotiations, and the anguish of world Jewry over their choice. And Black does more. He provides a true understanding of Israel's founding and the heartbreaking realities of the Jew's plight in Hitler's Europe.
