“Nobody Wants Us” Documentary and Discussion

Hosted By: CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center (Indiana)

In September 1940, three teenagers were trapped on a steamship in the port of Hampton Roads, Virginia. Along with 83 other exhausted refugees, the teens were hoping to be allowed on American soil— where millions of others in distress had safely landed before them. But times had changed. America was turning away refugees at this critical time in history. Would they be turned away too? “Nobody Wants Us” is their story.
