The creation of modern Israel was also part of the “response”.
A great deal of my family was killed in these camps and many survivors relocated to Israel. I don't think a single one was upset at the allied response.
“The allies also extensively documented the death camps with photos and films so they would not be forgotten.”
Eisenhower ordered that. For that reason...so that there would be evidence when the deniers would come forth (Today!)
Well, they should have been, because our anti-semitic state dept refused entry to hundreds of refugees who had relatives here - lives lost in the death camos that could have been saved.
FDR fought in Europe to help Britain, nothing more. He USED the Holocaust to kick the Nazi's in the crotch after the war. We would have done the same no matter what happened to the Jews. Even today, Jews vote Dem because of FDR and he didn't give a damn one way or the other. Today, who is it that takes the Pali's side over Israel? Dems!
Jews will be sold down the river by Dems yet they stay on the plantation just like blacks.
Another thing to remember at the time, The Dems were the KKK. The Dems were the socialists which aligned more closely with Hitler. Many Newspapers and Holly Wood types supported Hitler. They were Dems. FDR fit in with this crowd.
