Haavara Book Launch in Brazil

When all nations failed, only one group—the Zionist Organization—had the courage to boldly face the Nazi hierarchy to save 60,000 German Jews, transferring them to Jewish Palestine with their assets to build a new life—as Moses had done millennia before. Now the story will be told.

Famed New York Times bestseller Edwin Black, author of IBM and the Holocaust, has authorized this first-ever translation of his critically acclaimed and revelatory book, The Transfer Agreement, published in Brazil as Haavara, by Idea Editora. Haavara is Hebrew for "transfer."

OVERWHELMING. Black’s research is striking in its dimension and scope. The vast uncovering of source material and its extensive use are almost overwhelming. Yoav Gelber, Yad Vashem
HISTORICAL JOURNALISM AT ITS BEST. Alexander Zvielli, Jerusalem Post
SPELLBINDING. Sybil Milton, Simon Wiesenthal Center
METICULOUS. Gladwyn Hill, Los Angeles Times
RIVETING. Jan Cawley, Chicago Tribune Magazine
