Meyer Weisgal — A Forgotten Zionist Visionary
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
Meyer Weisgal was an American Zionist visionary who focused a spotlight on the urgent need to rescue the imperiled Jews of Europe in the 1930s. Through his determined, creative and often ingenious endeavors — including his production of a thick magazine celebrating the birth of the Hebrew University, his spectacular pageants The Romance of a People and The Eternal Road at Chicago’s 1933 World’s Fair and on Broadway, respectively, and his conceptualization and management of the popular Jewish Palestine Pavilion at New York’s 1939 World’s Fair — Weisgal dedicated his life to the survival and flourishing of the Jewish people.
