This book documents the 1933 agreement between Nazi Germany and an organization of German Zionists to save certain German Jewish property and the voluntary emigration of German Jews to Palestine, before the Third Reich ousted and then extermination. The transfer agreement saved about 60,000 German Jews. A vast global economic boycott of Germany by Jews helped spur an agreement between the Nazis and the Zionists. [3] These checks apply to any transfer request to ensure that the authority of the person signing is still valid. This includes subsequent transfer requests submitted by the same member. The book also documents the controversy within the Zionist movement and the Jewish diaspora over the deal showing Black “that tore the Jewish world apart before World War II.” In particular, it describes the conflict between German Zionists and local German leaders in the United States who argued in favor of the deal and, on the other hand, Eastern European Jewish-American Zionist leaders (such as the American Jewish Committee and Jewish War Veterans) who opposed the deal and instead advocated for a total boycott of Nazi Germany. offers links to books presented on C-SPAN networks to make it easier for viewers to buy.

The Transfer Agreement: The Dramatic Story of the Pact Between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine is a book by author Edwin Black that documents the Haavara Agreement between Zionist organizations and Nazi Germany to transfer a number of Jews and their property to Palestine. Shortly after Samuel Untermyer`s return from Germany to the United States in 1933, front-page articles appeared on the front pages of newspapers in London and New York claiming that “Judea declares war on Germany.” This led to an effective boycott of German products in many countries, which severely affected German exports. The agreement was partly inspired by this boycott that seemed to threaten the Empire. [1] Contested, as can be seen a posteriori, it marked one of the few rescues of the Jews and their fortunes in the years leading up to the Holocaust. [2] Edwin Black spoke about his book The Transfer Agreement: The Dramatic Story of the Pact Between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine (Dialog Press; 25th Anniversary ed. August 25, 2009). It gathered the story of a 1933 agreement between Hitler`s government and a group of Zionist leaders. The agreement provided for the transfer of 55,000 Jews and $100 million to Palestine, in exchange for the closure of a planned economic boycott against Nazi Germany by Jewish organizations. *This transcript has been composed of unadjusted subtitles.
