This is a very short book of letters between two men, one a Jewish American living in the United States, the other a German who returns to Germany to raise his growing family just as Hitler is rising to power. The two men shared a friendship and were business partners, so it’s safe to assume that they had quite a bit in common.

As Hitler rises to power, the tone of their letters begins to change as the German gets taken in by Hitler’s rhetoric. It is chilling to note the comparisons of the past to our present, and also how otherwise intelligent people can be taken in by a lunatic.

Even though the book was originally published in 1938, it still resonates today by illustrating how easily people can be manipulated and how desperate they can become when trying situations arise.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Ecco for allowing me to read an advance copy and give my honest review. ( )

Address Unknown, originally published in a magazine, is a short work of epistolary fiction between two business partners—Martin and Max—both originally from Germany, who are co-owners of an art gallery in San Francisco. Max is Jewish; Martin is not. Martin decides to move back to Germany in 1932 and the pair begin their correspondence. Through the bare-bones presentation of their letters, Kressman Taylor paints a picture of Martin's gradual transformation into a supporter of Hitler and Max's response to that transformation. The readers are given only pieces of this puzzles, but the pieces are enough to put together a full narrative. The book can be comfortably read in a single sitting, and that is probably the best way to approach it.

Originally published in Story magazine 1938 and reprinted in other magazines, it was released as a book in 1939, first in the U.S., then in England. In 1995, Address Unknown had its first re-release to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. Since then, Address Unknown has been translated into multiple languages. Kressman Taylor explained that she wrote Address Unknown as both a warning of events in Hitler's Germany, which an isolationist America was paying little attention to, and as an attempt to understand German-American friends who returned to Germany in the early 1930s and quickly became committed to the Nazi cause. In her own words, Kressman Taylor wanted to know "How can such a thing happen?... What can change their hearts so? What steps brought them to such cruelty?"

The questions Kressman Taylor was asking are, of course, relevant to our own times. Like many novels written in response to a particular historical moment, it remains pertinent even when that particular moment has passed.

I received a free electronic review copy of this title from the publisher; the opinions are my own. ( )

Wow. How do I react to this? Cheer? Cry? Feel horrified? Drop my jaw in disbelief and shock? Honestly I am feeling all the feels. What a massive thought bomb this very short book is! While this story is set as WWII is gaining ground, I think it so relevant to today and everyday really. It will make you reflect deeply on your own values and morals. Friendship. Family. Patriotism. Humanity. What would you stand up for? Who would you stand up for? How far would you go to support your friends and family? The more I think about the implications of these character's actions and situations, the more I am thinking this feels like a horror novel - and even more horrifying, it's actually our historical reality. It's definitely 90 pages that will leave you reeling. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me a copy of this book. ( )

To think this was published in 1938. I am not sure a more concise, relevant message could be written for its time. Why wasn’t this part of one of my English lit or history classes in high school or college? ( )
