Synopsis: Suggest reasons why American efforts failed to stop the Holocaust
From Booklist: In these essays, Feingold explores the question of why the efforts of the U.S. government and American Jews were ineffective in saving European Jewry during the Holocaust. Feingold, a professor, author, and editor of the five-volume series The Jewish People in America, divides this scholarly work into three parts. Part one examines the uniqueness of the Holocaust and the problem of resistance. Part two focuses on the Roosevelt administration's response to the Holocaust, the idea of mass resettlement to save the Jews of Europe, and America's effort to save Hungarian Jews. Part three contains three essays dealing with the American Jewish response to the Holocaust and an essay asking "Who shall bear the guilt?" European Jewry was allowed to perish, he believes, because no place could be found for its rescue among the war priorities of the Allies, thus pointing the finger of guilt at all of us. George Cohen
