    Overview

    Summary
    In the early 1920s amidst the upheaval of Weimar Germany, a small group of peaceable idealists began to meet, practicing a quiet, communal life focused on self-improvement. "The Bund", as they called their group, had lofty aspirations: under the direction of their leader Artur Jacobs, its members hoped to forge an ideal community that would serve as a model for society at large. But with the ascent of the Nazis, the Bund's activities ranged from visiting devastated Jewish families after Kristallnacht, to sending illicit letters and parcels of food and clothes to deportees in concentration camps, to sheltering political dissidents and Jews on the run. Drawing on previously unpublished letters, diaries, Gestapo reports, and his own interviews with survivors, Roseman shows how and why the Bund undertook its dangerous work. -- adapted from jacket
