From the 1930s, with the first wave of refugees from Nazi Germany, to its operations today in aiding refugees from persecution and famine in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America, the International Rescue Committee has been a prime example of effective private relief and rescue work. This semi-official history is a tribute to all who have participated in that work and a service to the public in making the record known in detail.
