ABOUT THIS BOOK
Wayward Threads is the story of Robert Goldmann's youth in Reinheim, a small German village; his experience in the early Nazi years in Frankfurt; his forced emigration in 1939; and his subsequent career in the United States, including service with the Voice of America, brushes with McCarthyism, and a brief tenure as head of the European bureau of the Anti-Defamation League. Goldmann also discusses his later experiences and encounters with his native Germany. Full of arresting vignettes, Wayward Threads stands out among other Holocaust memoirs for its strong American dimension.
