Shadows in Paradise: Hitler’s Exiles in Hollywood

By 1939, 30,000 intellectuals and radicals were exiled from Europe; 80% were Jewish. These dramatic events sent many of the greatest minds of the 20th century into exile in the United States, including Arnold Schoenberg, Thomas Mann, Bertholt Brecht and Fritz Lang. In some ways, Los Angeles in the 30's and early 40's may be seen as its afterglow when scores of emigres, fleeing the upsurge of European fascism, briefly transformed Southern California into one of the capitals of world culture.
