This compelling documentary, unearthed from recently discovered diaries, shines light for the first time on James McDonald’s efforts to warn the world of Hitler’s plans “to get rid of the Jews” and his attempts to rescue Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazis.  


McDonald later served as the first U.S. ambassador to Israel, laying down the foundation of American-Israeli friendship.
