Description : It has long been argued that the Allies did little or nothing to rescue Europe's Jews. Arguing that this has been consistently misinterpreted, The Myth of Rescue states that few Jews who perished could have been saved by any action of the Allies. In his new introduction to the paperback edition, Willliam Rubinstein responds to the controversy caused by his challenging views, and considers further the question of bombing Auschwitz, which remains perhaps the most widely discussed alleged lost opportunity for saving Jews available to the Allies.
Description : Probing these questions, Gulie Ne'eman Arad finds that, more than the events themselves, what was instrumental in dictating and shaping the American Jews' response to Nazism was the dilemma posed by their desire for acceptance by American society, on the one hand, and their commitment to community solidarity, on the other. When American Jews were faced with the desperate plight of European Jews after Hitler's accession to power, they were hesitant to press the case for immigration for fear of raising doubts about their patriotism.

Description : This book examines the reactions of Orthodox British Jews and their leaders to the Holocaust as it unfolded in the years 1942-1945. It focuses on the efforts of Solomon Schonfeld, who was the leader of the ultra-orthodox "Haredi" community in Britain at the time, and concentrates on the community's efforts on behalf of the beleaguered Jews on the Continent rather than the assistance offered to refugees in Britain. Through extensive research into Schonfeld's papers, British public and municipal archives and those of the Agudat Israel and Vaad Ha Hatzala, the author has made an important contribution to the history of this period. Many of these documents have not been analysed until now. Careful, extensive research, coupled with a keen understanding of human nature, has enabled the author to paint a vivid picture of a segment of Jewry that was desperate to assist its brethren, but was faced with almost insurmountable obstacles.
