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?

  1. 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. 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.
