The abandonment of the Jews : America and the Holocaust, 1941-1945 by David S Wyman( Book )

35 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in English and held by 2,813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his landmark work, author David S. Wyman contends that a substantial commitment to rescue Jewish people on the part of the United States almost certainly could have saved several hundred thousands of the Nazis' victims.

Paper walls; America and the refugee crisis, 1938-1941 by David S Wyman( Book )

15 editions published between 1968 and 1986 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this essential companion to The Abandonment of the Jews, David S. Wyman examines American policy on refugees in the years leading up to World War II. For almost four agonizing years, from 1938 through 1941, German Jews tried to leave their country. Barred from the United States by restrictive immigration policies, millions ultimately were killed, and a mere 150,000 finally found haven in this country. How could such a tragedy have come about? Wyman's answer is that America's public resistance had four bases: unemployment, nationalism, anti-Semitism, and later, fear of fifth columnists disguised as refugees. Wyman concludes that this was essentially what the American people wanted."--Book cover

This text includes a transcription based on a twelve-hour interview with Hillel Kook (Peter Bergson).

Blowing the whistle on genocide : Josiah E. Dubois, Jr., and the struggle for a U.S. response to the Holocaust by Rafael Medoff( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Blowing the Whistle on Genocide tells the story of a young Treasury Department lawyer who helped alert the world about the Holocaust and force U.S. government action to rescue Jews from the Nazis." "Risking his career and ignoring threats that were made against him, Josiah E. DuBois, Jr., relentlessly investigated and then exposed the State Department's suppression of news about the Holocaust and obstruction of rescue attempts." "His report, "The Acquiescence of This Government in the Murder of the Jews," helped force President Roosevelt to belatedly establish the War Refugee Board. With DuBois as one of its leaders, the board played a key role in the rescue of more than 200,000 refugees during the final months of the war." "At every turn, DuBois was confronted by officials who tried to stop him - from the powerful Assistant Secretary of State who sabotaged rescue attempts, to the War Department official who blocked DuBois's proposal to bomb Auschwitz and worked to pardon Nazi war criminals after the war." "But DuBois persevered. He overcame the obstacles and saved lives. He was America's Schindler."--Jacket
