Abstract:

Contemporary Jews feel that the U.S. government should have done more than it did to save the Jews during the Holocaust and that American Jewish leadership at that time was wanting. American Jews did care about the fate of Jews in Europe and did appeal to the American government to help. But before late 1943, resistance on the part of American political leadership to any rescue attempt, the outright sabotage and lying at all levels of the U.S. bureaucracy, and the inurement of Roosevelt himself to the plight of the Jews were so overwhelming that the possibility of rescue advocates breaking through the "walls of silence" was extremely limited. The War Refugee Board, established in January 1944, did contribute "in some small measure" to saving Hungarian Jews.
