They would talk about it incessantly, in a superior and knowing tone, and make occasional promises about giving aid as soon as is was practical, but that because of XYZ, it may take longer than expected. As soon as it was too late, they'd "come to the rescue", with great condescension. They would demand great compensation, as well as constant expressions of gratitude for far longer than their acts deserve, and would quickly talk about the ingrates in the US once someone pointed out their smugness and ineptitude.
Given the history of Europe, why would anyone expect a change of any kind in a potential future of any kind?

“Given the history of Europe . . . “
Given the history of America. This country did not fight a war to save Jews from concentration camps. We even turned a whole boatload of them away seeking sanctuary - the S.S. St. Louis in 1939. FDR knew what Hitler was doing and didn’t do a damn thing, and Truman was anti-semitic.
No reason I see for the Europeans to do anything to save us from concentration camps.
The S.S. St.Louis - the ship that no one wanted.
Hitler knew then he could do anything he wanted.
