Cornelius Schnauber - Hollywood Haven: Homes and Haunts of the European Emigres and Exiles in Los Angeles
"Hollywood Haven provides a cultural history of the exiled writers, film directors, musicians, actors, and actresses who were drawn to Hollywood seeking employment. This trend actually began in the early decades of the twentieth century when Germans and Austrians were attracted to this film metropolis. However, the author focuses here on the period between 1933, when the National Socialists came to power, and 1952, when Thomas Mann, the most famous of the exiles who lived in Los Angeles, returned to Europe. During this time over 1500 German and Austrian emigres and exiles worked in the Hollywood film studios.
In addition to the information about the exiles and emigres the book presents driving and walking tours of the historical landmarks, including their homes.
