The inspiring story of one thousand Jewish and Christian refugees brought to sanctuary in America in 1944. As special assistant to Secretary of the Interior Harold L. Ickes, Gruber was selected to carry out this top secret mission despite the ojections of military brasss who doubted the thirty-three year old woman's qualifications.
