Abstract:

"When the Nazis came to power in 1933 they drove many of the world's greatest artists, musicians, film-makers, writers and scientists out of Germany. Throughout Nazi-controlled Europe modern culture was swept away and a new system of political correctness inspired by a mythical past was imposed." "Hitler's Loss tells the story of the escape from danger and oppression of many major figures in the arts and sciences - mainly, but not exclusively, Jews - and introduces an unlikely hero, the American Varian Fry, who saved more endangered Jews and dissidents from certain death than the better-known Oskar Schindler." "No other emigrant group in history was so talented, highly educated and influential. Hitler's Loss not only celebrates their achievements but shows how their professional approach to the arts and sciences changed British and American cultural life for ever. Hitler's loss was truly Britain's and the USA's gain."--Jacket.
