Title: Saving The Jews, Franklin D. Roosevelt and The Holocaust

Title: Saving The Jews, Franklin D. Roosevelt and The Holocaust
Author: Robert N. Rosen
Publisher: Thunder’s Mouth Press (imprint of Avalon Publishing Group)

 

       Robert Rosen admirably puts President Roosevelt right back on his pedestal where he belongs, despite the efforts of dozens of revisionists who would have F.D.R. responsible for the deaths of millions, including a third of our people in the Holocaust during World War II. F.D.R. will still be remembered by millions of Jews – and by history – as our hero.

 

         Many revisionists, both within the Church, and without, are attempting to explain why Pope Paul XII didn’t speak out more forcefully against anti-Semitism, Nazism and the forces of evil of his day. In most instances the records of the Vatican come up blank or shrouded in mystery because they are unavailable to historians for research. Not so with the record of F.D.R. who was ahead of his time in speaking out for all minorities, including Jews, and who apparently didn’t have a mean bone in his entire corpus.

 

         Over the centuries wherever Jews settled in communities we became “the other” – one of those groups that people would point out as being different. Thus it was in America even though everyone except the native aborigines (the “Indians”) came from somewhere else. As before, anti-Semitism sprouted its ugly wings. Because of our urgent need for community, including being able to walk to shul on Shabbos, Jews would congregate near shuls. Even pre-dating the arrival of chassidim in America, gentiles could not mistake the fact that observant Jews dressed differently – head covering for men, modest attire – even in warm weather – for women, etc.

 

         It was into this milieu that both F.D.R. and Hitler arrived at nearly the same time.

 

         “Saving The Jews” deals exhaustively with such subjects as the (non) admission of Jewish refugees from Nazism into America during the pre-war and war years; the failure to bomb Auschwitz and the railroad tracks leading to it; the progress of the war on both the European and Pacific fronts; American and international politics vis-à-vis the establishment of Israel; the development of the Atomic bomb; the voyage of the St. Louis to Havana, Cuba, with nearly 1,000 German refugees – most of whom were returned to Europe; the anti-Semitism of the State Department and its contribution to banning admission of Jews who may have been granted refuge in America.

 

         This book may be over 527 pages in length but it’s an “easy read” a “must-read” and well worth reading for any intelligent person who doesn’t want to trust the revisionists of history. Rosen includes a bibliography of original source material – much of which he shows has been misquoted by the revisionist historians. In essence – Robert Rosen puts F.D.R. right back on the pedestal where he belongs. He was a patrician, born to comfort and luxury who disdained his own comfortable existence because he saw that there were wrongs to right, both in America and on the world scene.

 

         The America of F.D.R.’s time became extremely isolationist due to the incessant wars between European powers. America had no idea of its greatness and capacity for dealing with global concerns. F.D.R. however understood Nazi Germany’s agenda to conquer the world and eliminate millions of people and was determined to stop the evil empire in its tracks.

As any psychologist can tell you – no two people who see an event come away with the very same experience. Criminologists and detectives who question people who may have witnessed a crime experience the fact that several different people will report various versions of the event.
