Americans’ Responses to Jewish Refugees: Wrestling with Fear + Moral Responsibility

Xenophobia, anti-Semitism, 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. More than 70 years later, how can this history help us think about the world we live in today? Experts from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC will share materials from the museum archives as we explore these questions and more.
