Rescue Board: The Untold Story of America's Efforts To Save the Jews
(Doubleday - Penguin Random House, 2019)

America has long been criticized for refusing to give harbor to Jews during World War II as Hitler and the Nazis closed in. Rescue Board tells the extraordinary, unknown story of the War Refugee Board, FDR’s unpublicized effort late in the war to save the remaining Jews.

Author Rebecca Erbelding is an archivist, curator, and historian at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and a native Rochesterian.
