The story of three generations of an American family at the forefront of the most dramatic events of the past hundred years: Henry Morgenthau Sr., U.S. ambassador to the Ottoman Empire; Henry Morgenthau Jr., secretary of the treasury under FDR; and Robert M. Morgenthau, long-time district attorney of New York County. From fighting for international action against the genocide of Armenians, through efforts to rescue Jews during the Holocaust, to the struggle to reduce street crime and prosecute white-collar corruption in New York City, the trajectory of the three Morgenthau generations epitomizes the American experience and the lasting value of public service.
