In Nobody Wants Us Irving says:


“A rush of Jews are leaving the country by car and on foot. Hitler’s becoming more and more powerful.  The French and the English aren’t doing anything to subdue the Germans. We’re leaving with the hopes that the French, the British will counterattack... and somehow, we’ll be able to come back. 

My father wants to go back just to get some of our possessions. But we can’t let him go.  We can’t separate from each other and he can’t take that risk.”

~ Irving Redel, 17 years old in 1940
