The time is 1940, when Hillel Kook arrives in the United States, fresh from the underground resistance to the British in Palestine

Under the alias Peter Bergson, he leads a small group of activists in seeking to rescue Jews threatened with destruction in Europe

Bergson is shocked to find his efforts blocked by the indifference and anti-Semitism in the Roosevelt administration and the fears and timidity of the Jewish establishment

Undaunted, Bergson and his colleagues organize a bold campaign to open the doors of the United States to Jews fleeing Hitler in a desperate race against time

Based on actual events, The Accomplices is the true story of one man's fight on American soil to shatter a conspiracy of silence and inaction in the face of genocide

"A story that needs to be told, and Weinraub - a longtime New York Times reporter - does so with moving clarity. A substantial, punch-packing morality thriller" ~ Time Out

"Provocative, intelligent and compelling. The Accomplices will give you plenty to talk about" ~ NY Daily News
