Out of Hitler's Reach:
The Scattergood Hostel for 
European Refugees 1939-43

by Michael Luick-Thrams
Published by Iowa State Press

--

"Scattergood has given so much to every one of us who went there to find a place of security in a strange, bewildering new world--as America was to many of us--a place of human understanding, help, advice.  A place of peace in a world of war, a haven amidst a world of hatred."
 Rudolf Schreck, 1940 hostelite from Austria 

In 1929, Scattergood, like the rest of the country, was caught in the wake of the Great Depression. The decision was made to close the school in 1931, with hope it would only be a one-year closure. Unfortunately, Scattergood remained closed until 1938 when the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) suggested Scattergood be utilized as a hostel for European refugees fleeing the Nazis. The campus was renovated, and in 1940, the first refugees arrived. Refugees were from various backgrounds and Scattergood was once again operated with the Quaker spirit in which it was conceived. In addition to taking English classes, those living at Scattergood were also expected to take part in work crews as well as helping to grow and prepare their food.

Basically we're talking about Schindler's List on the prairie. The only difference is that everyone in the world knows about Oskar Schindler and the 1,100 Jews he saved in middle Europe. Almost no one knows about the 185 refugees that Iowa Quaker farmers and college kids saved.
