The United States and the Nazi Holocaust: Race, Refuge, and Remembrance
Author: Barry Trachtenberg
The United States and the Nazi Holocaust is a synthesis of US policies and attitudes toward the Nazi persecution of European Jewry from 1933 right up to the modern day. The book, which includes 20 illustrations, weaves together a vast body of scholarly literature to bring students of the Holocaust a balanced, readable overview of this complex and often controversial topic. It demonstrates that the United States' response to the rise of Nazism, the refugee crisis it provoked, the Holocaust itself, and its aftermath were—and remain to this day—intricately linked to the ever-shifting racial, economic, and social status of American Jewry.
