Format: Paperback
I first read 'None Is Too Many' twenty years ago. Just recently I have reread this magnificent work of history and I am even more impressed. 'Magnificent ?' Yes, truly so. Nowhere have I found a more accurate discourse of this subject. This book is a world class document for the ages ahead. May our children's children weep for the folly of mankind in its blindness and inhumanity. The authors describe on a day to day basis the Nazi horror and the indifference of the Canadian Government and the Canadian people of that terrible time. I excerpt one page so that you may judge the quality of the writing and the horror of the times:
The Line Must Be Drawn Somewhere/53
like if my son's talent would not be wasted. . . . You would save the future of the grandchild of a rabbi." A seventeen- year-old boy, the son of "respectable parents of the Jewish middle class," wrote from Berlin on behalf of himself. As a Jew, he said, he could neither work nor survive in Germany. He had to leave, and was therefore begging for admission to Canada. From Czechoslovakia a group of two hundred farm families, "with a total of one million dollars in capital," begged for entry visas. They were aware that "the Canadian government dislikes ... to get any Jews into the country," yet had no other choice but to leave their homeland before the Nazis arrived. For the twelve members of the Zuckermann family of Austria, the situation was almost hopeless. As Samuel Zuckermann wrote to the Jewish Colonization Association, "In great distress and desperation a whole family directs itself to you with an appeal for help. ... We have here no possibility whatsoever to maintain ourselves. If no assistance will come to us forth- with, we shall all go under. Please help us and save us. You are our last hope.

To the "customer from Portsmouth": "None is Too Many" is specifically about the JEWISH EXPERIENCE. If you want to read about the experiences of other groups, go ahead. But don't criticize this great book for not covering every single group's experience when it was not geared towards that.
I highly recommend this book-it was very informative and extrememly well-researched.

This was a great priced book. The history and research done in this book is phenomenal. It also came a lot faster than I expected.

this is a tough book to read because it forces you to face the reality of Canada's antisemitic history and complacency at helping Jewish refugees during WWII

Format: Paperback
An important study of the discriminatory immigration policies Canada had in the interwar period this book is nevertheless flawed for advocating, very effectively but not very historically, that only Jews suffered from racist attitudes against their immigration. Many other communities, before, during and after the Second World War, were victims of racial profiling and stereotypical attitudes that resulted in their exclusion or limitations being placed on the numbers admitted. And after the war, despite the apparent biases of a very small minority of Canadian officials, Jews were actually given preferential treatment in coming to Canada, a trend that has continued to the present day (we are still getting Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet Union, some claiming to be "refugees"). This is a valuable contribution to Canadian immigration history and certainly presents a pro-Jewish position forcefully, but it is only a partial and somewhat polemical account of a subject that is far more complex than here presented.
