Memoirs of Riegner (1911-2001), the former Secretary-General of the World Jewish Congress. Born in Berlin, he was active in efforts against the influence of the Nazi movement at the universities during his years as a law student. In 1933, when Riegner, his parents, and his two sisters were suspended from their respective positions and schools, he immigrated to France. In 1935 he moved to Geneva, where he was appointed to head the office of the World Jewish Congress. Recounts the story of the celebrated "Riegner telegram" (1942), warning the Allies of the Final Solution. Attributes the silence of President Roosevelt, the British government, the Vatican, and the Red Cross to the unique character of the Shoah, the world's apathy, and the antisemitism of the Allies. Discusses Riegner's efforts to rescue Jews in 1944. Describes the activities of Swiss Jewry after the war in favor of Jews in Arab lands, Soviet Jewry, Christian-Jewish relations, and the creation of the International Declaration for Human Rights
