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.
