  "Rescue Through Emigration" features many moving photographs, as well as personal testimonies of  refugees who once sought to escape the many hardships that befell them and their fellow Jews during the first half of the twentieth century.

Thanks to the aforementioned organizations, thousands of Jews were rescued as they boarded ships that took them to far away lands where they hoped to live in peace and harmony, free from tyranny and oppression.

The Museum of Family History wishes to thank HIAS, JDC and AJC for their cooperation in this project.
