"Jews drink the blood of Christian babies. They use it for their rituals. They are evil and they consort with the devil."

The belief is called the Blood Libel.

In a small town in upstate New York in 1928, four-year-old Evelyn Wilson goes missing. Instantly, old prejudices claw to the surface. As a frenzy of panic and bloodlust overwhelms all reason, the community turns on the Schatzman family.

A terrible witch hunt follows.
The Schatzmans' young son is accused of horrifying crimes.

As their life in America falls apart, leaving nothing but anguish and devastation, some of the Schatzmans decide to return home to Berlin.

But Germany in the 1930s is no safe harbor.

Based on actual events, Not in America explores hidden hatreds, simmering resentments, and the short path separating civilization from horrific violence.

About the Author
Roberta Kagan

I am a USA Today Best Selling Author of Historical Jewish Fiction mainly set during World War 2. My father was Romany, and my mother was Jewish; when I was very young, I learned about the Holocaust. I couldn't understand how something like this could happen. So, I began to research and learn more. I met with survivors. I even met with the children and grandchildren of SS officers. But I still had no answers. I cannot say that I have all of the answers to all of my questions even now. But what I do know is that soon all of the survivors will be gone. Their message must be remembered, and the sacrifices that they made must not be forgotten. And so I humbly and with the utmost humility, I try to tell their stories. It is painful, but I must convey the darkness and horror of the time. However, I also want the world to know and celebrate the unsung heroes. Because many ordinary people acted in heroic ways. I realize that writing these books is a great responsibility. I pray every day that I can do this correctly. I am trying to reach out and touch many people, not with the message of the horrors but with the promise of hope. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for considering my work. It is an honor that I never take lightly.
