After escaping the Nazis, Arno Mayer and other German Jewish
refugees learned how to glean information from the enemy as part of a
secret American military operation during World War II.
Mayer faced a moral dilemma when he was ordered to work with German rocket
scientist Wernher von Braun and other Nazis who immigrated to America after
the war. Von Braun’s skills and know-how were considered so valuable that
even President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who had witnessed Nazi atrocities
firsthand, embraced him.
Request a reminder to join expert historians for a discussion about Jewish
refugee soldiers and the 1,600 Nazis permitted to immigrate to America.
