I served as the Morgenthau Scholar-in-Residence at the FDR Presidential Library from 2019-2021. I blogged about my role here. I posted about my initial research on the importance of Henrietta Stein Klotz, the assistant to Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau Jr., here. She played a central role in convincing Morgenthau to take a more active stance in refugee rescue policy during the end of World War II. A more complete blog about Henrietta entitled “Henrietta Stein Klotz: ‘Watchdog of the Secretary of the Treasury'” can be found on the FDR library’s blog page. A chapter I wrote about her will be published in Jewish Studies in the Digital Age by De Gruyter in 2022.
