The Refugee Research Fellowship Program, 1933-1945

In response to the rise of the National Socialist Party in Germany, AAJR launched a plan to fund research fellowships for European Jewish scholars, providing their endangered colleagues a means to leave Europe. The program faced bureaucratic, political, and financial obstacles, but the legacy of the Refugee Research Fellowship Program demonstrates the tenacious commitment to the humanitarian plight of their fellow scholars that animated AAJR members from 1933 to 1945.
