    Something like a 3.6.Without a doubt, this treats the tragedy sympathetically It still frustratingly refrains from confront ing the various questions that have been raised in useful depth and complexity 112 , choosing in the end to say that the debate over Allied complacency and or action has come full circle 213 Considering the format of the book i.e., original source readings , perhaps we shouldn t expect much in the way of deductions anyhow Occasionally, and confusingly, Abzug tosses out questions that sound geared toward one of his history classes, preparatory to a sampling.I perused the readings with intellectual delight and emotional strain However, of all possible choices, is this what coalesced I might have wished for eyewitness accounts and I don t buy into revisionistic, Jew or America hating beliefs that such don t exist en masse If such testimony didn t drift in until after 1945, we could have used the editor s explanation to that effect.It almost seemed like some of the apologetic moderating in reaction to reports of the time pieces were thrown in on purpose to offset the sensational, creating a false sense of balance.Regardless, this remains a worthwhile read.

    While the inclusion of the numerous primary sources is extremely helpful to the historian, I feel that Abzug didn t sell me enough on his thesis that the United States should have done sooner to help those in Concentration Camps much of the book deals in anti Semitism and not as much with the other groups targeted by the Nazis It comes with a lot of retrospective analysis and comes up short in efforts to prove conclusively that the Allied Powers should have abandoned all aspects of its war plan and instead jumped right into Europe, and liberated the prisoners while the general public still couldn t believe what was happening despite the accounts Abzug has published.If you are reading just the primary sources, you will enjoy the book and get a lot out of it If you are wondering why nobody did anything about the Holocaust sooner, this book unfortunately misses the mark.
