PROF. JACK FISCHEL: FDR & THE HOLOCAUST

One of the more contentious issues in Holocaust historiography is the role played by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in confronting the Nazi extermination of European Jewry. Critics such as David Wyman contend that the president abandoned the Jews by at first, not opening the gates of the United States to Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi terror. Second not using the weight of his office to take a strong stand against the Nazis during the war. The lecture will consider the role played by anti-Semitism in American life and the controversy over the failure to bomb Auschwitz.
