Americans and the Holocaust

Studies of Americans' responses to Nazi Germany's murder of six million Jews, Roma, and other "enemies" have long been limited to a handful of questions. Why wasn't Auschwitz bombed? Why didn’t the US government rescue hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees? This section explores a wider range of themes, adding rich primary sources and historical context to the surrounding debates. Americans and the Holocaust provides a panoramic portrait of politics and society in the US from the early 1930s to the years immediately following World War II.
