Anti-Nazi Fighter

Friday, November 15, 2002

In his new book, co-author David Wyman posits that early warnings against the Nazi regime were rebuffed and ignored by Americans. "A Race Against Death: Bergson, America and the Holocaust" discusses the efforts of Peter Bergson, who left Palestine for America with the goal of enlisting a Jewish army to fight the Nazis. Wyman speaks with Brooke about the resistance Bergson faced from the media, government, and much of the Jewish community.
