There is a family dynasty that has played a vital role in the most dramatic social and political moments of the twentieth century, yet they are not a household name. Drawing from over 70 interviews with noted historians, journalists, politicians, family and friends, is the epic story of three generations of an American family, the Morgenthaus. From fighting for international action against the genocide of Armenians on the cusp of WWI, through the efforts to rescue Jews during the Holocaust despite American political resistance, and working to reduce street crime and pioneer the prosecution of white collar corruption in New York City, the generations of the Morgenthau legacy epitomize the American experience and the lasting value of public service.
