Lives in Limbo: Jewish Refugees in Portugal, 19401945
In this lecture, Dr. Kaplan will describe the experience of Jewish refugees, mostly from Germany and Austria, as they escaped from Hitler to live in limbo in Portugal. Jewish refugees suffered anxiety and fear, but also evinced courage and resilience. Helpers included the very poor and very generous Portuguese people, the reluctant Portuguese government, and social welfare agencies, including the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee which subsidized needy refugees, found them shelter, and helped them reach safer havens.

The lecture will be based on her new book, "Hitlers Jewish Refugees: Hope and Anxiety in Portugal", available in 2020 from Yale University Press.
