Promised New Zealand: Fleeing Nazi Persecution By Freya Klier

Police hold placards in front of Jewish shops, emblazoned with the words 'Don't buy from Jews'"; others put up signs to identify places where Jews are to be denied entry. SA men smash Jewish shop windows, owners are terrorised into relinquishing their businesses, and homes are visited by Gestapo who take family members away. The year is 1933 and this is life in the Führer's Germany.

In the ensuing years, it is clear nowhere in Europe is safe. But how can people find a way to escape 'fortress Europe' and where are they to go?

For twenty-four European Jews, it is New Zealand, the country furthest from Germany, that will be their refuge. First published as Gelobtes Neuseeland, this book brings together their stories. From doctors and entrepreneurs to children and world-famous minds, their stories could scarcely be more varied and yet they have one common link - the desire to maintain as much distance from Germany as possible throughout their lives.
Promised New Zealand is a significant piece of world history, interweaving historical background on the politics of the period with vital stories that need to be told before they are lost to subsequent generations. It is the first English-language translation of this important work and the first time it has been published outside of Germany.

    Book Terminology

    Tanning - age tanning or browning/yellowing occurs over time on the pages of books,  tanning tends to start on the outside of the pages and progresses inward over time, often creating a brownish or yellowish border around the page edges.
    Foxed / Foxing - age-related brown or brown-yellowish spotting of the paper caused by a chemical reaction over time.
    Sunned - damage done to a book cover or dust jacket caused by exposure to direct sunlight.
    Closed Tear - indicates a torn page in which no material has been lost. A closed tear can be pressed back into place or sometimes fixed with archival repair tape.
    Ex-library – the book was once owned by, and circulated in, a public library.  This book could well be in any of the above general categories but more often than not has been well used.  May have library stickers, stamps, or markings.
