Amram Scholar Series Presents: Michael Dobbs

WHC is proud to welcome Michael Dobbs for this year's Kristallnacht Commemoration.

Michael Dobbs of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and a former foreign correspondent for The Washington Post offers a riveting and intimate account of Jewish families in a small village near Germany’s Black Forest who desperately pursued American visas to escape the Nazis. In his book, The Unwanted: America, Auschwitz, and a Village Caught in Between, Michael Dobbs painstakingly documents how several members of this small community struggled to find refuge and what obstacles stood in their way

Published by Knopf in association with the Museum, The Unwanted will be available for purchase during the event. The book is part of a groundbreaking educational initiative that includes the new Americans and the Holocaust exhibition on display in Washington, DC

Michael Dobbs comes to Washington Hebrew through a partnership with the Jewish Book Council.
