Henry Morgenthau testifies before the Senate Foreign Relations Commission in support of the Lend-Lease bill to aid Britain.

Henry Morgenthau Jr. (1891-1967). Secretary of the Treasury under Franklin Roosevelt, and highest ranking Jew in the administration. In January 1944, after receiving a report prepared by his subordinates on "the acquiescence of this government in the murder of the Jews," Morgenthau wrote a personal report to the President which led to the establishment of the War Refugee Board. After the war he became Chairman of the UJA (1946-50) and became involved with many Zionist causes.
