WHC Books: "Rescue Board"

WHC Books invites you for a Shabbat dinner and discussion with Rebecca Erbelding, author of the award-winning book Rescue Board: The Untold Story of America’s Efforts to Save the Jews of Europe.

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.

Registration is now closed for the WHC Books Shabbat Dinner and Program.
