William E. Dodd was chosen by FDR to be the ambassador to Germany when Hitler came to power. His daughter decided to go with him instead of tried to fix a failed marriage because she thought it would be an adventure!
A lot of Jewish refugees want to come to U.S. But FDR thought it would be bad for the economy. There was much anti-Semitism in pockets of the US. There were a lot of political discussion at the the time on whether to accept the refugees or not.
As I was listening to the CDs of this book I kept comparing what President Trump said and did to Hitler. I was very struck by the conversation that Ambassador Dodd had with Hitler when he was leaving his position. It makes me aware of the many similarities between the two.
There was a real deal of emphasis on the love affairs of his daughter, she often treads on dangerous ground and it seemed to take a very long time to realize that the new Germany was not going in the right direction. Ambassador Dodd was not the typical diplomat. He hated the many parties and wasteful spending, but he had principals and he did not betray them.
