Aline Kultgen emigrated from France to America in 1947 when she was 9 years old. Her father, a Jew and member of the Resistance, had been shot by the Gestapo in 1944, just days before the Allies liberated France. In a video interview with the MCC, Kultgen recounts this story and explains why it is important for America to accept refugees fleeing the terror of ISIS. See the MCC Interview here. Also read Messenger Online for an in-depth discussion of the worldwide refugee crisis.
