Hitler in Los Angeles : how Jews foiled Nazi plots against Hollywood and America / Steven J. Ross.

Publication | Library Call Number: F869.L89 J564 2017

Reveals the little known story of a private Los Angeles spy operation organized by attorney Leon Lewis -- which included Neil Ness, Joseph Roos, and Charles Slocombe -- to stop the rise of Nazis from killing the city's Jews and sabotaging the nation's military installations. Also discusses Nazi threats and their influence on Hollywood film content and the sometimes conflicted role of German consul Georg Gyssling, and also Los Angeles's anti-Semitic political movements.
