Weil in the late 1930s confronted rising anti-Semitism in America as well as Europe. An advocate of world peace and disarmament, she saw the war effort as necessary to defeat Hitler. She remained close to her European cousins, who wrote her detailing Nazi persecutions, and worked assiduously to support their attempts to immigrate to America by providing affidavits, money, and sponsorships. She saved perhaps a dozen relatives, who fled Germany, although several were lost. In the camp town of Goldsboro Weil opened her home to Jewish soldiers and worked in the larger interfaith community to provide hospitality to those serving at local military bases.
