Ratner Lecture, "Jews in the United States and the Response to the Holocaust, 1942-45"

Uptown Campus
Roger Memorial Chapel

Reports of the mass murder of European Jews reached Jews in the United States in 1942. Although precise knowledge of what was actually happening was piecemeal, American Jews and Jewish refugees, recently arrived in the US, mobilized to draw attention to the genocide, demanded military action against the Nazis to stop the killing, and called for collective efforts to aid survivors. This talk covers the range of responses from the Jewish community in the US to the Holocaust during World War II.
