FDR And The Jews – Time For Reconciliation?


We will never fully come to terms with FDR and his response to the Holocaust – the debate will go on until the end of time – but we can now have a degree of peace with our role in the Holocaust as a nation and as an American Jewish community – in effect with ourselves.

After all, isn’t that what the debate really is about?

Gregory J. Wallance is a lawyer in New York City and longtime human rights activist. He is the author, most recently, ofAmerica’s Soul in the Balance: The Holocaust, FDR’s State Department, and the Moral Disgrace of an American Aristocracy.”
An e-book version of the book is being released this month, with a foreword by Michael Berenbaum, former director of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Holocaust Research Institute.   

About the Author: Gregory J. Wallance is a lawyer and writer in New York City and the author of “America's Soul In The Balance: The Holocaust, FDR's State Department And The Moral Disgrace Of An American Aristocracy.” He is currently working on a book about three women spies in World War I, one of whom is Sarah Aaronsohn.

    An outstanding article. I for one have purchased Mr. Wallance's book, which has been available since April 17, 2012…so just a little factual error by the editors.

  2. He was a heartless person.

  3. Why couldn't he use any of his enormous influence to get the British to stop their violation of the Mandate for Palestine? At a minimum hundreds of thousands would have been saved and it would cost the US nothing whatsoever.

  4. Ltc Howard says:

    The Jewish community should learn a lesson from this. Had they pressured Roosevelt many more Jews would be alive today. The lesson is don't roll over and play dead for Obama ,,, Or you and Israel will wind up dead.

  5. Subject: Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg's Holocaust speech.
