eBook - 2007
Rate this:
Nearly unknown, even in Mexico, Bosques outwitted Spanish fascists, the Gestapo and even Japanese spies as he successfully whisked tens of thousands--Spanish Republicans, entire Jewish communities, British agents, Resistance leaders and many others--from certain death in Nazi Occupied Vichy France. Casablanca was only a Hollywood version of one very small piece of a complex dangerous operation largely organized and run by Bosques from his Mexican consular office. Bosques--who would later play an essential role in defusing the Cuban Missile Crisis--was interviewed about his diplomatic career when he was approaching his 100th birthday, provided here in English translation for the first time.
