A few months ago "Safe Haven" was being discussed by this group.  I thought
you might like to know the following, which I found in the Oswego

There is a book out published by Safe Haven, a volunteer group dedicated to
preserving the memory of the refugees who stayed at Fort Ontario during
World War II.  _Haven, The Unknown Story of 1,000 World War II refugees_ by
Ruth Gruber is available by sending a check for $10 plus $2 S&H to:
Safe Haven, Inc., PO Box 846, Oswego, 13129.

There is also an exhibit and video display on Sunday afternoons during the
summer from 1-4pm.  The exibit will be held in the Oswego Head Start
Bulding, on the south edge of Fort Ontario Park, next to the Oswego Art
Association Building.  The building was once used for storage at the
refugee shelter.  The exhibit contains 16 photo panels, several laser
reproductions of original douments, and a model of Fort Ontario as it
looked in 1945.  Videotaped interviews with Oswegonians and some of the 982
former refugees from the Holocause can also be seen.  Mrs. Gruber's book is
available at the exhibit, and is also available at the Richardson Bates
House Museum.  For more information, call 343-1971.
