The British Government and the Holocaust: The Failure of Anglo-Jewish Leadership?

by Meier Sompolinsky - £19.95  Sussex Academic Press (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781902210247 | ISBN 10: 1902210247

Three competing Jewish organizations in London approached the British Government to initiate actions to assist European Jewry. Innumerable talks took place and many letters were exchanged. Impatient bureaucrats rejected the parallel requests and proposals in favour of maintaining a strict immigration blockade against Continental Jews. The vacillation of the competing Jewish leadership, and its collective inability to force the Government to adopt a more humanitarian attitude, raise disturbing questions as to what might have been achieved if personal antagonisms had been put aside in favour of a combined, more forceful approach.
