Description

A first novel by a new writer, The Refugees is the fictional story of a group of social democrats, communists and Jews who fee Germany when Hitler comes to power. A lukewarm advertisement on the book's own dust jacket suggests that it is a "strange" novel which "shows signs of immaturity" and the cover design (a proliferation of swastikas) seems likely to lessen its appeal for later audiences.
