Saving the Jews: Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Holocaustby Robert N. Rosen, Alan M. Dershowitz (Afterword), Gerhard Weinberg (Foreword by)
Since the 1960s, when a post-World War II generation of historians came of age, the answer has seemed increasingly that FDR was close to being an antisemite. After all, the Holocaust took place on FDR's watch. Why didn't the Allies simply bomb the camps? But now, in a rigorously researched narrative and interpretive history, the record of the Roosevelt administration is indisputably laid bare. A fearless example of historical detective work, Saving the Jews lays to rest once and for all the canard that Roosevelt abandoned the Jews of Europe and that America was a passive, callous bystander to the Holocaust.
