...I was a coward when I left that ship in Havana. I did not have the courage to turn around and look into the faces of those I was leaving behind... All they saw of me was my back as I walked away...

We were contacted after the war ... by the new German government, inviting us back to Germany ... but my parents had no interest. Germany was over for them, and for me.

I initially expected this to be a dissection of the decisions and policies of the United States that sent 900 refugees back to the land they fled. Instead, it was their stories, revealing how their persecution was limited to neither the Nazis nor US indifference. Rejected by other countries, and even other Jews, those fortunate to survive were left with torments that some could not even speak of 60 years later. The authors did an incredible job tracking the fates of all of the St. Louis passengers.
