Join HIAS Action DC, a 20s and 30s advocacy network, June 6 on Capitol Hill to commemorate that day in 1939 when nearly 1,000 Jewish refugees aboard the M.S. St. Louis were denied entry to the United States; to honor the memories of those who died in the Holocaust after being denied refuge; to lament continued efforts to once again close the doors of our country to refugees seeking freedom and safety; and to do something about it!
