Americans’ Responses To Jewish Refugees

Wednesday, March 22, 2017 - 7:00p.m. to 8:00p.m.

Wrestling With Fear And Moral Responsibility
Xenophobia, antisemitism, economic insecurity, and restrictive immigration laws. These were the barriers Jewish refugees faced in the 1930s and 1940s when seeking safe haven in the United States. Rebecca Erbelding, Archivist at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, discusses how this history helps us think about the world we live in today.
