Join Franklin and Debbie for an art history live and interactive webinar series sure to entertain...Surrender on Demand! That was the chilling declaration by the suddenly empowered Nazi captors of Vichy France, which had been up to that point at least a tenuous refuge for those fleeing their oppressors. At least two heroic ivy educated Americans, Varian Fry and Hiram Bingham, with high-level state department connections, agreed to a covert rescue mission, largely in violation of official policy. An ardent, anti-Nazi, Fry said, "I could not remain idle as long as I had any chances at all of saving even a few of its intended victims." Through the support of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, the Emergency Rescue Committee provided funding, to rescue a list of about a thousand artists, intellectuals, and like cultural figures deemed endangered. Among these was a group that included the most significant modern artists and art personalities in Europe: Marc Chagall, Max Ernst, Alma Mahler Gropius Werfel, Jacques Lipchitz, Marcel Duchamp, Jean Arp, Harrah Arendt, André Breton, Roberto Matta, and Wifredo Lam.
