Abstract:

"This volume represents a recital of activities in which I was personally involved and reports only the scope of my involvement. I have no intention of suggesting or implying that "Flight From Fear" is a history of the drive for the independence of Palestine, or that it is a complete review of the rescue of human lives from the European holocaust, or that it is a summation of the work of this government's War Refugee Board or other official and private agencies which served conscientiously the causes to which I too aspired. This is nothing more than the account of one man and his duties as he saw them. Due to prison routine, illness and subsequent medical treatment, I could not give a day by day account leading up to my exoneration. I tried to be as chronological as circumstances and conditions would permit. I kept my notes largely in Hebrew as a precaution against possible loss and detection. This account, minus some changes that have been made necessary by the disappearance of corroborating evidence and threats of libel suits, is my translation of the composite material"--Book.
