October '43. [Translated from the Danish by Molly Lindholm and Willy Agtby. With a Foreword by Sholem Asch and an Introduction by Hans Hedtoft].
"Museum Press, " "8vo., First English Edition, with a frontispiece, 8 plates on 4 and a full-page map in the text, neat contemporary inscription on front free endpaper; cloth, backstrip lettered in yellow, a near fine copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter mildly frayed and creased at extremities. Vivid account of the author's 'Jewish Dunkirk' when some 6,000 Danish Jews were rescued from the Gestapo and transported from Denmark to neutral Sweden. In the context of Schindler and others, this is a story that deserves to be much better known. Uncommon in this condition."
