After being refused safe haven in the United States as well, the M.S. St. Louis was forced to return to Europe.
This voyage symbolizes the world’s indifference to the plight of European Jewry on the eve of World War II.
Holocaust Survivor, Eva Wiener, will share the story of her family’s survival. Eva is pictured at left, as she was carried aboard by her mother, and below with her parents.
Dr. Debórah Dwork will provide the historical context for the M.S. St. Louis, focusing on the lack of response worldwide to the crisis facing the Jews of Germany. Debórah Dwork is the Rose Professor of Holocaust History and the Director of the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University.
Survivors of the M.S. St. Louis are invited to participate in a Question and Answer session following the presentation.
