The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh, in partnership with the Heinz History Center, is proud to host historian Rebecca Erbelding. Dr. Erbelding is an expert on American responses to the Holocaust and the War Refugee Board. She has worked at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum as an archivist, curator, and exhibition research historian for the past fourteen years.

Dr. Erbelding recently published the book Rescue Board: The Untold Story of America’s Efforts to Save the Jews of Europe (Doubleday, 2018), which tells the full story of the War Refugee Board. Booklist raves: “Erbelding writes vividly of intrigue and espionage, secret negotiations, money laundering, ransoming of victims, and rescue ships . . . Erbelding’s history is an important contribution to understanding America’s humanitarian efforts during and after WWII and a timely perspective, given questions about today’s world crises.”

Dr. Erbelding also worked on the highly successful new exhibit at USHMM, Americans and the Holocaust.
