FDR pushed to get Jews to safety in 1930s - May 1st 2009, 04:29 AM

http://www.usatoday.com/news/washing...4-30-FDR_N.htm
Quote:
Newly uncovered documents reveal that President Franklin D. Roosevelt worked quietly in the late 1930s to find havens for European Jews, contradicting the view that he ignored their plight in the years leading up to the Holocaust. Roosevelt was "a master politician who tried to carry out some humanitarian steps while juggling political and military considerations," writes historian Richard Breitman, co-editor of Refugees and Rescue: The Diaries and Papers of James G. McDonald (1935-1945) released today. The book draws on papers at the Center for Jewish History in New York City. McDonald was chairman of Roosevelt's advisory committee on refugees. He met Adolf Hitler in 1933 and was convinced the Nazi planned to exterminate Europe's Jews, prompting him to sound warnings. He later was the first U.S. ambassador to Israel.
Nice new info about Fdr..

He was a good guy for the most part. And I do give him a lot of credit, because trying to help the Jews in Europe would be a huge challenge when there was a lot of anti-semitism, even in the United States. He risked a lot of his own political ambitions to do what he could to help these people.
