Oldfield's thoroughly researched and fascinating historical biography explores the lives of many of the 2,600 citizens who attracted Hitler's ire, ranging from high-profile entertainers and writers to those naturalised refugees who doggedly resisted the Nazis from afar * Observer *
Fascinating ... It is as though someone compiled an edition of the Dictionary of National Biography for the year 1940 with the qualification for each entry being that the Nazis hated them -- Robert Hutton * BBC History *
A fascinating book ... it serves as a timely reminder of the dangers of intolerance and the politics of hate * Daily Express *
A protean and wondrous document, a fascinating and formidable piece of scholarship, a combative testament to those whom Oldfield calls throughout "heroes of humanity" ... It is, above all, deeply human, and unabashedly focused on the spirit and the soul of the past as well as of the present -- Mika Provata-Carlone * Bookanista *
Revelatory ... not just a valuable historical document but also an apposite warning * Morning Star *
