Buchbeschreibung The Viking Press, New York, 1944. Hardcover. Revised Edition. First printing thus. xv, [9], 285, [3] p. 25 cm. Endpaper maps. Illustrations. Glossary. Index. Preface by Vilhjalmur Stefansson. From Wikipedia: "Ruth Gruber (born September 30, 1911) is an American journalist, photographer, writer, humanitarian and a former United States government official. Ruth Gruber was born in Brooklyn, New York, one of five children of Russian Jewish immigrant parents David and Gussie Gruber. At eighteen she won a postgraduate fellowship at the University of Wisconsin Madison. In 1931, she won another fellowship from the Institute of International Education to study in Cologne, Germany. She received a Ph. D in one year from the University of Cologne in German Philosophy, Modern English Literature and Art History, becoming the youngest person in the world to receive a doctorate. While in Germany, Gruber witnessed Nazi rallies and after completing her studies and returning to America, she brought the awareness of the dangers of Nazism. Gruber's writing career began in 1932. In 1935, The New York Herald Tribune asked her to write a feature series about women under Fascism and Communism. While working for Herald Tribune, she became the first foreign correspondent to fly through Siberia into the Soviet Arctic. During World War II, Secretary of the Interior Harold L. Ickes appointed Gruber as his Special Assistant. In this role, she carried out a study on the prospects of Alaska for homesteading G.I. s after the war. In 1944, she was assigned a secret mission to Europe to bring one thousand Jewish refugees and wounded American soldiers from Italy to the US. Ickes made her "a simulated general" so in case the military aircraft she flew in was shot down and she was caught by the Nazis, she would be kept alive according to the Geneva Convention. [6] Throughout the voyage, the Army troop transport Henry Gibbins was hunted by Nazi seaplanes and U-boats. Gruber's book Haven: The Dramatic Story of 1000 World War II Refugees and How They Came to America was based on case histories she recorded as she interviewed the refugees. Since the U.S. Congress refused to lift the quota on Jewish immigration to the United States from Europe, President Roosevelt acted by executive authority and invited the group of one thousand to visit America. The refugees were to be guests of the president and upon arriving in New York, they were transferred to Fort Ontario, a decommissioned Army training base in Oswego, New York and locked behind a chain link fence with barbed wire. While U.S. government agencies argued about whether they should be allowed to stay or, at some point, be deported to Europe, Gruber lobbied to keep them through the end of the war. It was not until January 1946 that the decision was made to allow them to apply for American residency. This was the only attempt by the United States to shelter Jewish refugees during the war. [citation needed] A 2001 film called Haven was based on Gruber's book, with Natasha Richardson portraying Ruth Gruber. The Arab Legion post at the Allenby Bridge, 1946. Gruber was the first journalist to enter newly established Hashemite Kingdom of JordanIn 1946, Gruber took leave from her federal post to return to journalism. The New York Post asked her to cover the work of a newly created Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry on Palestine. The Committee was to decide the fate of 100, 000 European Jewish refugees who were living in European camps as displaced persons (DP). Harry Truman pressed Great Britain to open the doors of British Mandate of Palestine. The committee members spent four months in Europe, Palestine, and the Arab countries and another month in Switzerland digesting their experiences. At the end of its deliberations, the committee's twelve members unanimously agreed that Britain should allow 100, 000 Jewish immigrants to settle in Palestine. British foreign minister Ernest Bevin rejected the finding. Eventually the issue was taken up by the recently established United Nations, which appointed a Speci. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 66597
