It has long been argued that the Allies did little or nothing to rescue Europe's Jews. Arguing that this has been consistently misinterpreted, The Myth of Rescue states that few Jews who perished could have been saved by any action of the Allies. In his new introduction to the paperback edition, Willliam Rubinstein responds to the controversy caused by his challenging views, and considers further the question of bombing Auschwitz, which remains perhaps the most widely discussed alleged lost opportunity for saving Jews available to the Allies.

Review:

""The Myth of Rescue, written by a scholar who specializes in modern Jewish history, offers a comprehensive and iconoclastic look at the diplomatic, political, and military initiatives that were undertaken to assist Europe's Jewish population before and during World War II."
-"Parameters, Spring 1999
"Rubinstein has written a highly controversial and contentious book that is certain to anger many who have formed their views on America's response to the Holocaust. Nevertheless, the book should be welcomed if only to remind us that the responsibility for the Holocaust lies solely and wholly with Hitler, the SS and their accomplices."
-"Jewish Exponent, 3/12/98
"[A] persuasive account of the issues surrounding the question of rescue, in which Rubinstein challenges the major scholarly works dealing the with Allied response to the Holocaust."
-"Congress Monthly, M/A 98
"It is, in short, an important and courageous book....William Rubensteins' powerful brief against such excesses will, one hopes, be instrumental in restoring intellectual rigor and responsiblity to the continuing discussion on this aspect of the Holocaust."
-"First Things, 2/98
"Meticulously constructed and well documented...."
-"PS, 8/97

Synopsis:

One of the seemingly well-established aspects of the Nazi Holocaust is that the Allied forces did little or nothing to rescue Europe's Jews, allegedly denying refuge to those fleeing Hilters death machine, turning their backs on pleas for help, and refusing to bomb Auschwitz and other concentration camps. This text takes the controversial view that all the schemes for the rescue of Jews during the Holocaust were incapable of succeeding.
