lt relates the true stories of four courageous individuals who risked their careers—or their lives—to confront the unfolding Holocaust: A young journalist—and future US senator—who exposed the truth of Hitler’s plans; a member of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s cabinet who pleaded with the President to grant haven to refugees; an eyewitness to Nazi atrocities who met with American and British officials to reveal the death camps; and a Treasury Department official who blew the whistle on those in the government who were blocking the rescue of refugees. It also tells the infamous story of the refugee ship St. Louis—through the words of a never-before-published diary by a survivor of that voyage.

Holocaust scholar and award-winning Batman artist Dean Martinbrings to life these tales of moral courage in the shadow of genocide, with a foreword by attorney Mark Zaid, founder of Whistleblowers Aid. Although presented in comic book format, this is not a book for children; it is intended for adult and young adult audiences. Published by Dark Horse Books / Yoe Books.

“This powerful graphic novel shines a light on the brave whistleblowers who challenged America’s abandonment of the Jews during the Holocaust.”

author of Prologue to Annihilation and The Third Reich in the Ivory Tower

“When the refugee ship St. Louis was turned away from America’s shore, my fellow passengers and I felt as if there was no hope. Today, it’s inspiring to read about these four heroes who tried to help. Whistleblowers will reach hearts and minds in homes and classrooms across America.”

–Prof. Hans Fisher, a survivor of the voyage of the St. Louis

“Rafael Medoff and Dean Motter tell an important story: how the righteous can take stands for truth and save lives. We must learn from these stories to ensure those horrors never happen again.”
