Intro Text
The Transfer Agreement, Edwin Black's first book, was originally published in 1984 and has been continuously republished in updated editions. It documents the dramatic story of the pact between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine in which the Zionist Organization agreed to break the worldwide, Jewish-led anti-Nazi boycott in exchange for the transfer of some 60,000 Jews to Palestine along with millions in their assets converted into German merchandise. The Transfer Agreement, operating from 1933 to 1939, helped seed the Jewish State. In April 1998, Spertus Institute honored Black at a special ceremony in Chicago for donating the 35,000 archival documents gathered in the original research. Republished continuously, the latest edition was released in 2001 by Carroll & Graf with a special introduction by Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League. Black has written about the Transfer Agreement for a diverse group of publications, from the Washington Post and Chicago Tribune to Reform Judaism and B'nai B'rith Monthly. He has lectured on the topic extensively around the United States. He was interviewed on numerous television shows such as the CBS Morning News and was the subject of a half-hour NBC documentary. The Transfer Agreement won the Carl Sandburg Award for the best nonfiction book of 1984 and Macmillan submitted it for a Pulitzer nomination; it has been recently optioned for film.
