FDR and the Holocaust
Verne W. Newton
Palgrave Macmillan, Jan 15, 1996 - History - 278 pages
What did Franklin Delano Roosevelt know about the Holocaust and what did he do to try to prevent it? This question has proven to be one of the thorniest inquiries ever made into the progress of FDR's presidency. In 1993, some of the world's most outstanding scholars of the Holocaust and of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's presidency came together to discuss this still explosive subject. This collection of original pieces and anthologized articles grew out of the discussions held during two successive days at the Roosevelt Library in Hyde Park, New York. The contributors take a hard look at Roosevelt's reaction to the Holocaust, offering a timely and thought-provoking study that will be indispensable reading for anyone interested in either the FDR presidency or the Holocaust.
