Holocaust and Rescue

Impotent or Indifferent? Anglo-Jewry 1938-1945

Shatzkes, Pamela

This is a penetrating and balanced analysis of the options facing British Jews as they wrested with the problems of rescuing the victims of Nazi discrimination. Alive to political realities, and mercifully unpolemical, Shatzkes exposes the cruel dilemmas that made rescue increasingly difficult. The result is an impressive reworking of a contentious story, told here with compassion and understanding. RICHARD OVERY, Professor of History, King's College London
