Watch Live Program | Friendships That Saved Lives during the Holocaust

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Friendships That Saved Lives during the Holocaust
Live Digital Program

When Pennsylvanian teen Jane Bomberger and American exchange student Robert Harlan learned about Nazi persecution of Jews, they wanted to take action. Each found ways to help their friends escape from Germany and Austria.
Assistance from abroad was vital, because few people could obtain the necessary paperwork and permissions needed to immigrate to the United States in the 1930s.

On the United Nations International Day of Friendship, join Museum experts to learn about the individuals who went to great lengths to find refuge for their Jewish friends. Request a reminder to watch this special live program.
