Beachwood Branch

Beachwood Meeting Room (Auditorium) (100)

Meet Michael Dobbs, author of The Unwanted: America, Auschwitz, and a Village Caught In Between.

Michael Dobbs’ new book, The Unwanted, tells the powerful story of a group of German Jews desperately seeking American visas to escape Nazi Germany. It is an illuminating account of America’s response to the refugee crisis of the 1930’s and 40’s and complements the exhibition The Americans and the Holocaust that is now on view at the United State Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.

Dobbs, born and educated in Britain, was a long-time reporter for The Washington Post, covering the collapse of communism as a foreign correspondent. He is currently on the staff of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. His previous books include the bestselling One Minute to Midnight on the Cuban missile crisis, which was part of an acclaimed Cold War trilogy.

Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
