Responding to a question at a packed lecture at the Stevens County History Museum this week, Holocaust survivor Fred Amram said that helping refugees resettle should be a top priority for the nation.

Amram’s family fled their native Germany to the Netherlands in 1939 under cover of darkness, and eventually were allowed in to the United States. But even during the height of World War II, Amram noted that the United States let in a relatively small number of refugees from Germany and said that if America had opened its doors to a million more refugees at the time, there could have been a million less victims of the Holocaust.
