A rediscovered classic, originally published in 1938--and now an international bestseller with a new Introduction by the author's grandson.

When it first appeared in Story magazine in 1938, Address Unknown became an immediate social phenomenon and literary sensation. Published in book form a year later and banned in Nazi Germany, it garnered high praise in the United States and much of Europe.

A series of fictional letters between a Jewish art dealer living in San Francisco and his former business partner, who has returned to Germany, Address Unknown is a haunting tale of enormous and enduring impact.

In my opinion this should be required reading in classes studying WW2. Without in-your-face critique of events, this story SHOWS instead of TELLS how attitudes changed in subtle ways as an average German buys into the Nazi propaganda.

Very thought provoking if you take the time to consider the message, not just the words.

Not terrible, but a bit overrated, I think.
