Daniel Greene (Historian, Northwestern University)

Daniel Greene is the subject matter expert for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and an advisor for the PBS documentary The U.S. and the Holocaust.

What did Americans know about the threat of Nazism, and how did the nation’s immigration policy shape what could be done to help Jewish refugees? Daniel Greene will address the ways that American debated their responsibilities at a time of profound crises both at home and abroad.
