Publisher's Summary

A rediscovered classic and international best seller that recounts the gripping tale of a friendship destroyed at the hands of Nazi Germany 

In this searing novel, Kathrine Kressmann Taylor brings vividly to life the insidious spread of Nazism through a series of letters between Max, a Jewish art dealer in San Francisco, and Martin, his friend and former business partner who has returned to Germany in 1932, just as Hitler is coming to power. 

Originally published in Story magazine in 1938, Address Unknown became an international sensation. Credited with exposing the dangers of Nazism to American readers early on, it is also a scathing indictment of fascist movements around the world and a harrowing exposé of the power of the pen as a weapon. 

A powerful and eloquent tale about the consequences of a friendship - and society - poisoned by extremism, Address Unknown remains hauntingly and painfully relevant today.

I want to go back and listen....What did he say?

I want to go back and listen to the letter when Martin made the obvious shift and was explaining it to Max. ( Sounding a little like politics in the U.S. today!?). Max couldn't believe it was his old friend! There was the betrayal ("addressee unknown") and the later letters from Max were used as a weapon of revenge! (And then "address unknown!"). Very thought provoking, very short classic.
