Description

The story of the urgent efforts made by the Orthodox community in the United States to save the lives of millions of Jews trapped under Nazi control is one that is largely unknown. In this video, Project Witness highlights the enduring contribution to Jewish life and Torah-survival that was made by a handful of determined orthodox Jewish rabbis and community activists.

In order to understand the almost insurmountable opposition that the orthodox groups involved in Hatzalah in the United States encountered, it is necessary to understand the sociological and political climate of the 1920’s and ‘30’s in America. If we are to appreciate to the fullest what was accomplished, we need to recognize the conditions under which these groups single-mindedly pursued their goal of saving as many lives as they could.
