    Overview

    Summary
    A few historians have documented the factors that describe America's failure to aid Jewish victims of Nazi Genocide. A heretofore unexplored factor is the history of antisemitism in America, the extent to which this prejudice permeated the American psyche as the holocaust unfolded in Europe, and how that led to America's refusal to rescue European Jews.This paper presents an overview of the literature dealing with the history of antisemitism in America since its beginning, and how those antisemitic attitudes built and spread over time to where by the late 1930s they permeated every corner of American society. It forges the link between those prejudices in the collective unconsciousness of America and the behavior of the Roosevelt administration (among both civilian officials and military officers). It lays out the administration's attitudes regarding the rescue of European Jews, and the reasons for official policy that prohibited American aid from reaching and rescuing Jewish victims.
