'Address Unknown' by Kressman Taylor

2 posts in this topic

I strongly recommend this short read. It is a series of letters sent between two old friends in the 1930s, who used to sell paintings in the US. One, a Jew, still lives in America - the other, a German, has returned to his family in Berlin. The Jew, Max, has a daughter trying to make it as a young actress in Berlin. The correspondence documents the relationship between the two as Hitler is elected to power...the inaction of Max's friend, and his loss of everything via Max's pen makes a chilling tale of friendship and betrayal.

I read a condensed version of "Address Unknown" about 45 years ago in "Reader's Digest," and have not seen it since.

The chilling climax certainly was striking enough to stay in my mind, all these years.

Many copies are available on

which Betsy first recommended to me. Addall is probably the best single source for used books on the web.
