- Nowhere to Turn: Plight of German Jews in Nazi Germany, 1933-1942
This exhibit is about the lives and experiences of several Jewish families who fled Germany in the 1930s, most of them finding refuge in the United States. That they were able to find refuge in America was largely due to the tireless efforts of one man in North Dakota, who in the middle of America's decade of depression decided that he could not stand idly by while his relatives in German were being persecuted because the government of Adolf Hitler had deemed them to be "Untermenschen" -- less than human.
