This was an interesting book. I had anticipated more emphasis on why Fromm went into the condom business, as well as more detail on how condoms are made, but instead the bulk of the book was an accounting of the thefts perpetrated against the Fromm family by the Nazis. While I had heard of Nazis appropriating Jewish property, this book goes into more depth about the extent of the crimes. Overall I liked it, but I would have liked to know more about Fromm's feelings during and after the war.
