The art of resistance

Rosenberg, Justus
In 1937, after witnessing the violence of a Nazi mob in his hometown of Danzig, sixteen-year-old Justus Rosenberg was sent to Paris by his Jewish parents to finish his education in safety. Three years later France fell to the Germans and, alone and in danger, he fled south toward Marseilles, where he met and subsequently joined up with Varian Fry, an American journalist helping thousands of men and women escape the Nazis. With his German background, understanding of French culture, and fluency in several languages, Justus became an invaluable member of Fry's refugee network as a spy and scout and, when he was eventually forced to leave France, he continued working with the Resistance by recruiting men and women for the Underground army. At the end of World War II, he emigrated to America and built a new life for himself.
