With NEH support, Alan Kraut published two books: American Refugee Policy and European Jewry, 1993–1945 (1987) and Silent Travelers: Germs, Genes, and the “Immigrant Menace” (1994). The books, which delve into the history of American immigration and refugee policy, have had lasting impacts on academic and public understanding of these issues. Further, Kraut’s expertise in the areas of immigration and refugee policy and the history of public health policy has been sought out by policymakers, the press, documentary filmmakers, and exhibition curators.
