ABOUT

The Justus & Karin Rosenberg Foundation was founded in 2011 by Justus Rosenberg (the last surviving member of the Varian Fry group, which helped rescue hundreds of artists and intellectuals from the Nazis in World War II) and his wife Karin.
 
A major profile of Justus’ life, written by journalist Sarah Wildman, appeared in 2016 in the New York Times. Wildman also interviewed Justus at the Center for Jewish History on July 27, 2016.
 
The Foundation’s mission is to combat – and to increase the serious study of – hatred and antisemitism. Most of our projects — whether through our direct programs or funding others – impact college age students. All have to be consistent with, and ideally should promote, principles of academic freedom.
