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.

STONE MOUNTAIN MEMORIAL
Vernon Dalhart (1883 – 1948) born Marion Try Slaughter, was a popular American singer and songwriter of the early decades of the 20th century. He is a major influence in the field of country music. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970, into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1981 and into the Gennett Records Walk of Fame in 2007
USS Shenandoah was the first of four United States Navy rigid airship. It was built in 1922–1923 at Lakehurst Naval Air Station, and first flew in September 1923. And made the first crossing of North America by airship. USS Shenandoah crashed on land (and thus be suitable as a tourist attraction). On September 3, 1925, it was ordered to conduct an ill-advised publicity tour of Midwestern state fairs. Less than 24 hours into its flight "the strongest airship in the world" was caught in a thunderstorm, torn to pieces, and scattered across the rolling hills of Noble County in southeastern Ohio.
Stone Mountain Memorial Craving
The largest high relief sculpture in the world, the Confederate Memorial Carving, depicts three Confederate heroes of the Civil War, President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson.
Civil Chat with Lee looks at what's trending on this TGIF and also ISIS, Rand Paul's comments on ISIS. Who's really to blame? Lee looks at the inception of ISIS from the beginning, the point of "coming out" and who the players are in this party of barbaric ruthless terrorists. Is it Obama? Is it Bush? Both? How has the Middle East factions and civil holy wars contributed to the rise of ISIS? Syria? The Kurds? Iran?
Lee will also look at where Common Core is today in Ameican Education.

WHEN THEY COMPLETE THE THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF THEIR SOLEMN TESTIMONY, THE TYRANT WHO COMES OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT WILL DECLARE WAR AGAINST THEM AND CONQUER AND KILL THEM; AND FOR THREE AND A HALF DAYS THEIR BODIES WILLBE EXPOSED IN THE STREETS OF JERUSALEM (THE CITY FITTINGLY DESCRIBED AS SODOM OR EGYPT)--THE VERY PLACE WHERE THEIR LORD WAS CRUCIFIED. NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO BURY THEM, AND PEOPLE FROM MANY NATIONS WILL CROWD AROUND TO GAZE AT THEM. AND THERE WILL BE A WORLDWIDE HOLIDAY--PEOPLE EVERYWHERE WILL REJOICE AND GIVE PRESENTS TO EACH OTHER AND THROW PARTIES TO CELEBRATE THE DEATH OF THE TWO PROPHETS WHO HAD TORMENTED THEM SO MUCH! BUT AFTER THREE AND A HALF DAYS, THE SPIRIT OF LIFE FROM GOD WILL ENTER THEM AND THEY WILL STAND UP! AND GREAT FEAR WILL FALL ON EVERYONE. THEN A LOUD VOICE WILL SHOUT FROM HEAVEN, COME UP! AND THEY WILL RISE TO HEAVEN IN A CLOUD AS THEIR ENEMIES WATCH.
