Abstract:

Christians who fled Nazi-dominated countries, constituted almost a third of the refugees who reached American shores in the period of Hitlerian tyranny. Their plight has been largely neglected by historians. The book focuses on the apathetic, if not hostile, attitude of the American Christian communities to the rescue, relief and resettlement of non-Jewish refugees. Analysing the operations of Christian relief agencies, the author offers, for the first time, a standard of comparison, and proves that even relief agencies were more befuddled and helpless toward their own co-religionists than were the Jewish organizations. This book is based mainly on neglected archival sources of American refugee relief agencies and will prove an essential guide to the student of this topic.--Dust jacket.
