Rethinking American Responses To The Holocaust

Yom Hashoah  Lunch & Learn with USHMM Archivist and historian, Rebecca Erbelding.

Erbelding will share her research on the War Refugee Board, America's official response to the Holocaust, which is credited with saving tens of thousands of lives between 1944-1945. She'll discuss the myths surrounding what Americans knew and did about the Holocaust, as well as their work, from Raoul Wallenberg to a refugee camp in Oswego.

Cost:  Free of charge and ALL are welcome!
