McDonald was the first U.S. ambassador to Israel.
McDonald’s meticulously kept diaries were discovered in 2003.
The son of Catholic immigrants, McDonald was one of the first Americans to meet face-to-face with Hitler in 1933.
McDonald repeatedly warned world leaders, including President Franklin Roosevelt and future Pope Pius XII, of the looming tragedy he foresaw. Ambassador McDonald’s grandson, H. Vail Barrett, of Roxbury, will be present for commentary and audience discussion.
