Overview

Exiled in Paradise: German Refugee Artists and Intellectuals in America from the 1930s to the Present / Edition 1

A brilliant look at the writers, artists, scientists, movie directors, and scholars‹ranging from Bertolt Brecht to Albert Einstein, Hannah Art, Thomas Mann, and Fritz Lang‹who fled Hitler's Germany and how they changed the very fabric of American culture. In a new postscript, Heilbut draws attention to the recent changes in reputation and image that have shaped the reception of the German exiles.
