Ft. Leavenworth series | America’s Response to the Holocaust

April 5 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The U.S. has a proud tradition of serving as a haven for Europe’s cast offs — yet immediately before and throughout World War II, America shut its doors to refugees fleeing the oppression of the Nazis. No group suffered more from this than Europe’s Jews. David Cotter analyzes the ideological battle between isolationists and internationalists in the U.S. by assessing how President Franklin D. Roosevelt managed competing factions within his administration. The talk will provide an intriguing look at the ambivalence of America’s response to the Holocaust.
