The Rabbis March on Washington, 1943

400 rabbis did not move FDR to save what was left of Europe’s Jews, nor were they helped by Reform Jews, whose descendants side with anti-Semites.

After a thousand petitions failed to move FDR, Orthodox rabbis here in America attempted a dramatic show of force to persuade the President to do something – anything. More than 400 from the United States and Canada took to the road to persuade FDR to use whatever means to save what was left.

They planned to meet the President at the White House. The least he could do was open America’s doors. The silent quota permitted no flow, only a trickle.

This was 1943. Millions of European Jews had already been put to death for being Jewish. More were being murdered by the hour.

The rabbis approached the White House on October 6. The President could not be bothered. He left for vacation and there was no meeting.

    It took Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau to get FDR off his sorry ass, but by then, it was too little, too late.

    Of course, asking the Jews to, you know, actually defend themselves, was and is out of the question.

      Your comment has got to be one of the stupidest I have ever read on-line. Clearly you are totally ignorant of history. You must be from “Torono”, eh?

    In 1943 the holocaust was in high gear and no Jews, that I have heard of, were being allowed to immigrate away from axis controlled territories into allied territory.

      I don’t understand the point of this either, certainly not in the context of saving European Jews in 1943 by increasing legal U.S. immigration.

      Newly-liberated Italian Jews and European Jews who made it to Britain, or Ireland and other neutral countries pre-1941 (say) were already safe (the Luftwaffe notwithstanding) so why say FDR (that c#nt, BTW) wasn’t saving Jews from the Holocaust in 1943 by restrictive immigration practices?

      If it’s about the “don’t make trouble” movement, FDR has nothing to do with that so why hurt your argument making a nonsensical claim that in 1943 FDR wasn’t saving Jews from the Nazis through restrictive immigration?
