FDR and the Jews

Nearly 75 years after World War II, a contentious debate lingers over whether Franklin Delano Roosevelt turned his back on the Jews of Hitler's Europe. Defenders claim that FDR saved millions of potential victims by defeating Nazi Germany. Others revile him as morally indifferent and indict him for keeping America's gates closed to Jewish refugees and failing to bomb Auschwitz's gas chambers. In an examination of this impassioned debate, Richard Breitman and Allan J. Lichtman find that the president was neither saviour no bystand.
