Léon Blum

The only reason that this book was reviewed is for this: "In 1943, while he was interned, a kibbutz was named for him in the Galilee, backed by the American Federation of Labor and Eleanor Roosevelt, among others. Golda Meir was at its inaugural ceremony. Birnbaum notes that Blum, secular and French, always supported a Jewish national home." It isn't even about his role in France.
