Historian Heather Voight talks about her new book, "Passionate Crusaders: How Members of the U.S. War Refugee Board Saved Jews and Altered American Foreign Policy during World War II."
About Passionate Crusaders:
Passionate Crusaders tells the gripping story of a few righteous Americans who sought to do what many thought impossible in 1944--save Jews who had not yet been murdered in the Holocaust.
By January 1944, Treasury Department officials Henry Morgenthau, John Pehle, and Josiah DuBois had already convinced President Franklin Roosevelt to create the War Refugee Board, an agency with the authority to provide rescue and relief for Jews and other groups persecuted by the Nazis.
Scholars have criticized the Board for its inability to save more Jews and maintained that the agency should have been created sooner. Heather Voight's groundbreaking research proves that despite its shortcomings, the War Refugee Board changed history and forever altered American foreign policy. Its creation ended the cycle of indifference that the government and the American public had shown to victims of the Holocaust. In the words of Henry Morgenthau, from 1944-1945 "crusaders, passionately persuaded of the need for speed and action" risked their reputations and sometimes their lives to save Jews.
In addition to saving more than 100,000 lives, Board members also made a lasting impact on international law. They pressured the War Crimes Commission to broaden its definition of war crimes by including the murder of civilians by their own countrymen. This new definition of war crimes was applied to genocides committed many decades later in Bosnia and Rwanda, and continues to be used today.

The name “Katonte”, which in Bemba means “being warm together”, is the name of a village in eastern Masaiti District in Copperbelt Province. The Village is close to the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), roughly between the towns of Ndola and Kapiri Mposhi, but it is some 35 Km from the nearest rural clinic. Women and child morbidity and mortality are thought to suffer especially as a result. The Department of Health has constructed a new clinic there, but it is currently inoperable owing to the lack of staff housing. KHP’s initial target is to construct a house, and to contribute to equipping the clinic, so that staff can be posted and it can “open for business”.

children from fatherless homes are more likely to be poor, become involved in drug and alcohol abuse, drop out of school, and suffer from health and emotional problems. Boys are more likely to become involved in crime, and girls are more likely to become pregnant as teens.
– Children in father-absent homes are almost four times more likely to be poor. In 2011, 12 percent of children in married-couple families were living in poverty, compared to 44 percent of children in mother-only families.
There is significantly more drug use among children who do not live with their mother and father.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states, “Fatherless children are at a dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse.”
Data from three waves of the Fragile Families Study (N= 2,111) was used to examine the prevalence and effects of mothers’ relationship changes between birth and age 3 on their children’s well being. Children born to single mothers show higher levels of aggressive behavior than children born to married mothers. Living in a single-mother household is equivalent to experiencing 5.25 partnership transitions.

Teresa hosts an informal discussion with Lyn Buchanan about types of remote viewing.
Topic: Teresa discusses CRV Project Management and what a professional CRV customer report looks like. Teresa Frisch is a registered nurse with over 40 years of experience in healthcare and currently work in an Emergency Department in Southwest Ohio. Eventually I began studying nursing intuition and nursing theory after increasingly frequent personal nonlocal time / space events. A two hour remote viewing class at the Universal Life Expo in Columbus, Ohio in 2004 became a life-changing, defining moment. I nailed the target. I described a picture in an envelope with no idea of what it was until after I turned in my session. Remote viewing was not a random, déjà vu event. It produced results, and those results were, in fact, data. The intuitive, subconscious mind can accurately describe and report sensory information such as smells, sounds, tastes, colors, sizes, and shapes. I began studying CRV with Lyn Buchanan, former member of the U.S. Military Intelligence Unit STAR GATE in 2005. There was no looking back. As a CRV Analyst I am trained to separate data from the remote viewing session transcript for proper analysis. My CRV projects include archeology, chemical research, business decision-making and law enforcement consultation. As a CRV Instructor, I introduce the highly structured and carefully controlled methodology step by step, guiding the student through actual CRV sessions, gathering sensory data from real-world sites around the globe.
