Peter Bergson: The Jewish Lobbyist Who Advocated To Save Jews During the Holocaust is the story of a modern Jewish hero’s efforts to rally the United States government under the leadership of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, to make a significant attempt to save Jews from the Nazi “Final Solution” exterminations program that engulfed European Jewry in the early 1940s. In this book, author Dov Peretz Elkins, describes the one success of all the rescue efforts—the appointment of a War Refugee Board that saved as many as 200,000 Jewish lives.
