Description: In 1940, a young man named Varian Fry was sent to France by a refugee-rescue group with $3,000 to help those who had fled Germany and were now trapped in southern France.

The list he took with him had been prepared by the Museum of Modern Art, Eleanor Roosevelt, and others. It included most of the premier writers, painters, and scientists from Germany, many of them Jews: Marc Chagall, Max Ernst, and Hannah Arendt, among others.

Slowly, he put together a group of people who could help: forging passports, finding secret paths across the Pyrenees into Spain and then to Lisbon. Fry himself was constantly in great danger, but he seemed to experience a divine inspiration, achieving greatness by acting as a hero he never thought he could be.

Slowly, honors have begun to come to Fry. He is the first American honored at Israel's Holocaust memorial, Yad Vashem, as "Righteous Among Nations", and Barbra Streisand has produced a film about Fry, starring William Hurt, that will air this April on Showtime.

Sheila Isenberg has given us an inspiring story of what one individual can do when he is determined and brave.
