America and the Holocaust

pPBS3-19476516regAmerica and the Holocaust paints a troubling picture of the United States during a period beset by anti-Semitism and a government that not only delayed action but suppressed information and blocked efforts that could have resulted in the rescue of thousands of people. An examination of these factors is framed by the moving story of Kurt Klein, a German Jew who immigrated to America and struggled against a wall of bureaucracy to free his parents from Europe.
