The intown chabad


In bringing the week of Yom HaShoah to an end today (the commemoration of the Holocaust) and looking to Israel’s Memorial Day tomorrow, I wanted to share an incredible story I have studied for 25 years, and published a book about in 2016, called: “The Rabbi Saved by Hitler’s Soldiers: Rebbe Joseph Isaac Schneersohn and His Astonishing Rescue.” I started the study under former head of Jewish Studies at Yale University, Paula Hyman, back in 1994 and still cannot believe it. In 1939, one of the most prominent rabbis in the world, Rebbe Schneersohn, was stuck in Warsaw under the Nazis (a Rebbe, unlike a rabbi, is like a “Jewish Pope”). Through an incredible network in the U.S., people like Senator Robert Wagner, Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, FDR’s “Braintrust” lawyer Benjamin Cohen and Foreign Affairs officer Robert T. Pell in the State Department actually pushed people like the Secretary of State Cordell Hull and FDR to act on a request to save the Lubavitcher Rebbe from being killed by Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler’s SS. So, the U.S. State Department and White House actually contacted Reichsmarshall Herman Göring’s chief of his organization “The Four-Year-Plan,” Helmuth Wohlthat, and the head of the German Military Secret Service (the Abwehr), Admiral Wilhelm Canaris. They both agreed to help!!!! Both men wanted to keep the U.S. out of the war and also wanted to gain some good will in Washington D.C. Wohlthat turned the operation over to Canaris, and then the admiral picked his trusted officer and head of his organization’s Department for Economic Espionage, then Major Ernst Bloch, to conduct the mission. Bloch, strangely, was a “half-Jew” and had been “aryanized” by Hitler to remain in the army (this whole chapter of how such a thing happened is documented in my book “Hitler’s Jewish Soldiers”). Bloch then went to Warsaw with a group of Wehrmacht soldiers and, not only convinced the Rebbe he was there to rescue him (hard to do when bedecked with a uniform covered in Iron Crosses and Swastikas), but also, Bloch actually succeeded in getting Rebbe Schneersohn to America!! Now the largest Hasidic Community in the world (Chabad) is based out of Crown Heights (a section of Brooklyn), New York. I wanted to share this story to inspire others. Think about it. If an anti-Jewish and anti-immigrant oriented U.S. government of that time could work with the Nazi government and military to rescue one of the most Orthodox and fundamentalist Jewish leaders in the world using a “half-Jewish” Nazi officer, then a question that could be asked of many of us is: “What can we not accomplish today for the betterment of mankind if we decided to put away our petty differences of politics and religion and perform actions that help our fellow man?” One person can make a difference. Tikkun Olam—let’s try to make the world a little better today than it was yesterday. If you want to know more about the rescue of Rebbe Schneersohn, please see:
