Justus Rosenberg was the youngest member of the team led by Varian Frythat rescued some of Europe's most famous artists, writers, and intellectuals who had taken refuge in France prior to the Nazi invasion of 1940. Fry was sent on his mission by the New York-based Emergency Rescue Committee, which would combine in 1942 with the International Relief Association to form the International Rescue Committee. Justus shares his story in this 2009 video from the IRC archive.
