Searching for Survivors: The Fate of the St. Louis Passengers

A Lecture by Scott Miller

In 1939, the Cuban government turned away the MS St. Louis, a passenger liner carrying 937 people – almost all of them Jews fleeing Nazi Germany. With the passengers refused safe haven in the United States as well, the ship returned to Europe. Scott Miller, former director of curatorial affairs and co-author of the book “Refuge Denied: The St. Louis Passengers and the Holocaust,” will discuss the Museum’s ten-year project to uncover the fate of every refugee.

Free and open to the public, but reservations are required.
