Peter Bergson, who campaigned to rescue European Jews during World War II, died Saturday in Israel at the age of 86. In 1943, Bergson established the Emergency Committee to Save the Jews to publicize what he considered to be feeble efforts to protect European Jewry. As part of the effort, the group staged plays, took out full- page newspaper advertisements and held rallies.
