Friends in Deed: American Quakers and Refugees from Nazi Europe, 1938-1941

With Ron Coleman

The Library is pleased to host a lecture and discussion by EHRI Fellow Ron Coleman, a research librarian for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, whose research interprets the American response to refugees who tried to escape Nazi persecution between Kristallnacht in 1938 and the American entry into World War II in 1941. Coleman will share recently re-discovered stories of refugees and families the American Quakers aided during the "refugee crisis" years.

Ron Coleman has been a reference and systems librarian at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC since 2003. Ron assists scholars, students, family researchers, and other visitors wishing to use Museum collections to learn more about the Holocaust and related subjects. He has an undergraduate degree in History, Literature, and Philosophy from West Virginia Wesleyan College, and a Masters in Library and Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh.

Mr Coleman will be in residence at the Wiener Library as an EHRI Research Fellow in mid September 2016.
