AMERICA AND THE HOLOCAUST—DECEIT AND INDIFFERENCE
Newsreel footage, interviews of authorities, official documents, and statistics are humanized as the camera follows the moving story of Kurt Klein, who celebrated his Bar Mitzvah in the year Hitler came to power, emigrated to America, struggled to bring his parents over, joined the U.S. Army, and became a liberator of Nazi prisoners. Among the many topics covered are President Roosevelt’s inaction, Assistant Secretary of State Breckinridge Long’s policy of "calculated bureaucratic delay," and the belated formation of the War Refugee Board.
