Product Details


“A magisterial study.”

“Jean-Michel Palmier’s book establishes more fully than any other the extent of emigration of Germany’s greatest minds and talents, and that neither the exiles nor Germany ever fully recovered.”
Financial Times

“A monumental study, an impressive testament to the experiences, achievements and far-reaching influences of the refugees.”

“Jean-Michel Palmier published books on Georg Trakl, Hegel, Lenin, Lacan and Marcuse, as well as studies on German expressionism and a great work on the fate of anti-Nazi intellectuals, Weimar in Exile, celebrated by the Académie française. Everything fascinated him. He was a scholar who anxiously, almost mystically, quested after knowledge, and reminded one of a medieval philosopher even more than of a Renaissance man of letters. He was obsessed with art and culture. He was a surveyor of the past who tracked its faintest traces.”
Le Monde Diplomatique

“A monumental work.”
Le Monde

“This is an extraordinary book: in its historical breadth, its command of literature, documents, and archival material, its ambitious scope, and its sweeping judgments.”
Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Jewish Studies
