9780300115314: Rescued from the Reich: How One of Hitler’s Soldiers Saved the Lubavitcher Rebbe

The escape of ultra-orthodox Jewish leader Rebbe Schneersohn from Hitler’s Warsaw in 1939 has always been a subject of speculation. This book uncovers the true story of the rescue and the heroic role of the part-Jewish German soldier who led the operation.

"This is great material the stuff of Hollywood films and historian Rigg makes the most of it. . . . A well-written and vital addition to the literature of Holocaust survivor studies." Publishers Weekly

"Rescued from the Reich reads like a spy/suspense novel, but it is actual history, the amazing story of how the Lubavitcher Rebbe and his court were rescued from Nazi Germany." Micah D. Halpern, Jewish Book World

"Just when you thought the Second World War had no more secrets, along comes a book that blows a crater in the ramparts of received opinion." Norman Lebrecht, The Evening Standard

From the Inside Flap:

"A penetrating account of an unknown, fascinating tale of intrigue--the near impossible rescue of a great spiritual leader from Nazi-controlled Poland. The Rebbe’s Rescue is suspenseful, authoritative and well written."--David Kranzler, emeritus professor of history at the City University of New York and author of Thy Brother’s Blood: The Orthodox Jewish Response during the Holocaust
