Review:

A fascinating book creating controversy all across the country. Black applied his established investigative journalism techniques to history. The result is an extraordinary book. -- Bill Kurtis, CBS Morning News

A struggle to write a painful chapter in Jewish history. What Black began uncovering was a tangled account of an anguished moment in history, one that he at the center had to piece together from...forgotten archives, pre-WWII newspapers, and government records. -- Jan Cawley, Chicago Tribune Magazine

Black poses the controversial question: 'Was it madness or was it genius?' The many fascinated readers will have to decide for themselves. -- Booklist, American Library Association
