Varian Fry was a young Harvard-educated journalist and editor who worked for the American Emergency Rescue Committee during World War II.
He found his way to Marseilles where, working with the Emergency Rescue Committee, he employed his considerable charm (his nickname was "Beamish"), facility with languages, and multiple-passport identities to help hundreds of refugees--many of them among Europe's best-known artists and intellectuals--to escape occupied Europe.
By early 1940, Fry had affiliated himself with the Emergency Rescue Committee (ERC), and he volunteered to travel to France to help German Jews in France break free from the grips of Hitler's policies of deportation and extermination.
In the farewell ceremony at Medical Emergency Rescue Committee (MER-C), Executive Director of Voice of Palestine (VOP) Indonesia, Mujtahid Hashem, said that the convoy is the first team of GMJ-Indonesia National Committee.
When Varian Fry, an American journalist, went to Europe in 1941 on behalf of the Emergency Rescue Committee, he went with a mission: to save a group of European artists and intellectuals from the Nazis.
This month marks the 70th anniversary since Fry first arrived in Marseille as part of the Emergency Rescue Committee (ERC) an independent organization set up by wealthy Americans concerned with the persecution of the Jews.
Holocaust Memorial Museum), he recounts: "A group of men and women in New York, shocked by the news of this (Vichy-German) armistice, got together and formed the Emergency Rescue Committee. Its purpose: to get the artists, writers, musicians, scientists, professors, political figures-men and women whose works and words had made them enemies of the third Reich-out of France before they were seized by the Gestapo."
The outbreak of war soon shifted the focus to rescuing those stranded in Vichy France, a task which the Emergency Rescue Committee and other groups were better equipped to carry out.
He worked with the Emergency Rescue Committee, founded by Albert Einstein, Roger Baldwin, Frank Kingdon, Dorothy Thompson, Alvin Johnson and other members of American Friends of German Freedom, led by Paul Hagan (a ka Karl Frank).
Discounting high-flown bumph, what happened was that a group of powerful and intelligent people recognised a unique situation, raised some cash, and created The Emergency Rescue Committee. A young man, Varian Fry, was sent to Marseilles with two hundred names of people who were to be got out of France and Germany to America.
Lisa Fittko, an Austrian Jew who made it to France, was a smuggler of people, guiding them across the mountains in the early 1940s for the Emergency Rescue Committee, the group that smuggled Andre Breton, Marc Chagall, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, and many others into Spain.
