This is and English-language publication of a Holocaust memoir with a strong American dimension. It tells the story of Robert Goldmann's youth in a small village in Germany, his experience in the early Nazi years in Frankfurt, his forced emigration in 1939, and his subsequent career in the United States, including service with the Voice of America, brushes with McCarthysim, and a brief tenure as head of the European bureau of the Anti-Defamation League. The title of the book refers to Goldmann's last job as the head of the European bureau of the Anti-Defamation League: a job that, after a lifetime of happenstance and partial job satisfaction, brought together the three threads of his intellectual and personal development: Judaism, European and German influence, and American culture.
