About the Story

When it first appeared in Story magazine in 1938, "Address Unknown" became an immediate literary sensation. It was published as a book in 1939 and sold 50,000 copies. In recent decades it has been a bestselling book in France (in translation) and has became an acclaimed stage play. Address Unknown reveals the extraordinary power of the pen as a weapon. Written on the eve of the Holocaust it is an exchange of letters between two friends: an American Jew living in San Francisco and his former business partner and friend who had returned to his native Germany. It is a haunting tale of enduring impact, exposing the poison of Nazism and warns in age of racial and ethnic intolerance that history can repeat itself. -- From Amazon.
