Joe Haberer is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Purdue University and Emeritus Director of Purdue's Jewish Studies Program.

He was instrumental in Judith Tydor Baumel-Schwartz’s book “Never Look Back: The Jewish Refugee Children in Great Britain 1938-1945,” which is published by Purdue University Press.

The book examines the lives and struggles of Jewish children during World War two as they escaped from Hitler’s Germany to Britain, which was called the Kindertransport.
