The Transfer and Resettlement in the United States of Young Jewish Refugees from Nazism, 1934–1945

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In late June 1941 the Serpa Pinto, a battered vessel of Por tuguese registration, sailed into New York harbor and docked at a Manhattan pier. Among its passengers, who came from the four corners of the earth, were 111 European Jewish refugee children. Most of the children were Germans and had been chosen from children's homes and alien detention camps in unoccupied France to enter the US as immigrants on the German quota. One of these was Helga R., a 13-year-old girl from Berlin.
