Justus Rosenberg was the youngest member of the team led by Varian Fry that rescued some of Europe’s most famous artists, writers, and intellectuals who had taken refuge in France prior to the Nazi invasion of 1940. Dr. Rosenburg is professor emeritus of Bard College. He has generously given permission for the material presented in the preceding pages. His partial story is given here.
