In Search of Refuge: Jews and US Consuls in Nazi Germany 1933-1941 examines how the consuls perceived, interpreted and administered immigration policy towards the refugees. The book explores the relationship of consuls with the State Department; giving examples of initiatives by consuls; instances of prejudice and showing methods by which consuls obstructed entry of refugees in ways which went beyond instructions and even defeated the object of instructions. However, it also examines some cases of consular initiatives to offer aid, such as by issuing protective letters.
