Look Article, 'Voyage to Doom,' Recall
U.S. Failure to Rescue Nazi Victims

Hundreds of refugees from the
Nazis viewed loved ones through
portholes of a liner anchored on
this side of the ocean—only to be
returned to Europe, a magazine ar-
ticle recalled this week.
In "Voyage to Doom," in the cur-
rent issue of Look, writer Arthur
D. Morse describes the agony of
those on board and their would-be
rescuers in the spring of 1939,
when Cuba and then America re-
fused to accept the passengers of
the St. Louis.
The 930 Jewish men, women
and children, most slated for int-

migration to the United States
over the next three years, had
purchased Cuban landing certifi-
cates through Germany's Ham-
burg-American Line. Most were
left with no other resources ex-
cept for $4 in cash.
Cuban officials, in an apparent
extortion attempt aimed at the
American Jewish community, re-
' fused to honor the certificates. Ne-
gotiations collapsed.
Passing within view of the lights
of Miami, the refugees were re-
turned to Europe. Several coun-
tries took them in before the ship
reached Germany, but—except for
England — these countries were
later overrun by the Nazis and
served as no protection from the
gas chambers.
"Nowhere . . . in the archives
of the United States government,"
writes Morse, "is there a sugges-
tion that the refugees be sheltered
temporarily within the capacious
boundaries of the United States.
"Nowhere was their grave dan-
ger related to the American ex-
perience. Except in the Jewish com-
munity, there was no upsurge of
feeling among the American
people, all sons, daughters or des-
cendants of immigrants, to come
to the aid of these men, women
and children floating across the
Atlantic toward certain doom,
guilty of no crime, accused of no
offense, victims only of the acci-
dent of birth."
