The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

U.S. Senator Claiborne Pell


Senator Claiborne Pell, the former chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee of the United States Senate, is the son of Herbert Pell, the State Department official who established the Sosua colony for refugees in the Dominican Republic during World War II. In this clip from the film Who Shall Live and Who Shall Die?, he recalls the tragic story of the steamship St. Louis, turned away from the United States in 1939, full of passengers seeking to escape Hitler.
