HEROES, ANTIHEROES & THE HOLOCAUST: AMERICAN JEWRY & HISTORICAL CHOICE is the of extensive research into the archives of Jewish leaders who were active in the 1930s & 1940s. The history of the American Jewish response to the Holocaust to this point has been tendentious with one group of historians saying that, given the pressures of the era, there was little that could have been done by American Jews to save their European brethren, & that to say otherwise is unwarranted second-guessing. Another group of historians respond that such a position is nothing more than an apology for Jewish leaders in the free world who stood by while six million Jews were murdered. This book documents that there were choices available to Jewish leaders & that different levels of response to the Nazi threat were taken. What emerges is a range of responses, some dominated by petty personality clashes & others characterized by determined & heroic efforts that saved many thousands of lives. There is overwhelming documentation that Western leaders had detailed information about Nazi atrocities against Jews in the 1930s & during the war; the debate was only about how to respond.
