WHC Books: "Rescue Board"

WHC Books is proud to welcome the author of the book "Rescue Board."

America has long been criticized for refusing to give harbor to Europe’s Jews as Hitler and the Nazis closed in. Rebecca Erbelding, lauded Holocaust historian and author of Rescue Board: The Untold Story of America’s Efforts to Save the Jews of Europe, will speak at WHC Libraries’ final program and dinner to share the extraordinary story of the War Refugee Board, President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s little-known effort late in the war to save the Jews who remained.
