This is the book that, in 1938, jolted America into recognizing the Nazi threat. The setting is 1932. Jewish Max lives in San Francisco; gentile Martin has taken his family back to the “new” Germany, where Max’s sister is on the stage. The letters they exchange chronicle the corrosion of their friendship as Martin is swept up in a warped Nazi ideology driven by intolerance. Address Unknown is as relevant today as it was in 1938.
