This paper examines the life and work of the Jewish German-Bohemian writer Ernst Sommer in England and, by reference to previously unpublished correspondence, details the extent of his expropriation under the German occupation of the Sudetenland and the adverse effects of the drastically reduced market for his work. It shows how the persecution of the European Jews, the topic of much of his work in exile, is mirrored in his own life.
