    After Italy was liberated by the Allies, 982 refugees from 18 war-torn countries fled the Nazi terror in Europe during the Holocaust. In 1944, they sailed to the safety of America as guests of the  U.S. government. The Fort Ontario Emergency Refugee Center in Oswego, NY became their home for the next eighteen months.
