SUMMARY The Unwanted

SUMMARY Ø The Unwanted The powerfully told story of a group of German Jews desperately seeking American visas to escape Nazi Germany and an illuminating account of America's response to the refugee crisis of the 1930's and 40's This book complements the exhibition The Americans and the Holocaust that is now on view at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DCIn October 1940 the Gestapo expelled 6504 Jews from southwest Germany creating the first official Jewish free zone in the Third Reich Interned.

SUMMARY Ø The Unwanted In concentration camps in Vichy France the deportees set out on a multi year uest to acuire American visas One in four eventually managed to gain entry to the US or to other foreign countries; the remainder perished in French camps or later in AuschwitzAmong these unwanted refugees were Jews from the village of Kippenheim whose stories are at the heart of this book Drawing on previously unpublished letters diaries and visa records Michael Dobbs provides a vivid picture of what it was like to liv. Did FDR betray the Jews of Europe Did he turn a blind eye toward the Nazi Final Solution by preventing thousands of Jewish refugees from entering the United States Clearly there is ample evidence that President Roosevelt resisted pressure to admit German Jews fleeing from the Nazis and on than one occasion But the context in which he made those decisions suggests he had little choice That s one of the dominant themes of Michael Dobbs s illuminating new book on the Holocaust The UnwantedDobbs s subject is the immigration policy of the United States focusing on the years 1938 to 1943 These years spanned the period between Kristallnacht November 9 10 1938 and October 23 1941 when Reichsf hrer Heinrich Himmler issued a decree banning Jewish emigration from the Reich The official Nazi practice from that date onward was systematic annihilation rather than expulsionDid FDR betray the Jews of EuropeAmericans tend to seek simple answers to complex uestions But that s not possible in evaluating the response of the United States government to the plight of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany Many believe that FDR deliberately and callously rejected efforts to admit thousands of refugees on the St Louis and other ships and that he repeatedly refused to increase immigration uotas that would permit many to be saved But did FDR betray the Jews Dobbs makes it abundantly clear that the President had little or no choice in these matters Four out of five Americans opposed increased immigration many were especially hostile to Jewish refugees And Congress was dominated by isolationists many of them overtly anti Semitic FDR was convinced that any effort to circumvent the immigration uotas laid down in decades of restrictive policies would trigger an effort by Congress to restrict the inflow of immigrants even harshlyFor FDR the priority was to steer the United States toward its inevitable place among the Allies before Pearl Harbor and after that to keep Congress from shrinking the immigration uotas Despite often intense pressure from his wife the organized American Jewish community and sympathetic allies such as the uakers he did in fact decline to open the rolls wider But that practice must be seen in the wider context of the times FDR believed the country was doing the most it possibly could to accommodate Jewish refugeesThe United States admitted Jewish refugees than any other country except PalestineAs Dobbs reports from 1933 to 1942 162575 Hebrew immigrants had been admitted to the United States since Hitler s rise to power in Germany A hundred thousand had arrived in the three years following Kristallnacht Adding visitor visas the total number of self identified Hebrew admissions for the decade came to 204085 This number was far greater than that of any other country The only territory that accepted Jews than the United States during the same decade was British administered PalestineIt s well known that the US State Department under Cordell Hull 1933 1944 was riddled with anti Semitism Clearly some of the consular officials who served on the front lines in Europe in vetting visa applicants were themselves deeply prejudiced and dragged their feet when Jews appeared before them But Dobbs reports that others played key roles in facilitating the escape of German Jews Similarly some officials based in Washington used every bureaucratic trick in the book to slow down or halt the admission of refugees from the Nazis But others weighed in in support of the Jews and often with success sometimes with strong support from the President himself It s clear that whatever else might be said of FDR s actions he was not acting dishonorably or in any way that might be termed prejudiced To the uestion Did FDR betray the Jews the direct answer is NoForty one individual human beings caught up in the HolocaustTo bring his subject down to human scale Dobbs illustrates the impact of the rapidly shifting currents of US immigration policy on the tiny Jewish community of a village called Kippenheim near the French border in western Germany In 1933 144 Jews lived there among a total population of about 1800 By the end of the decade only forty one remained in the village And Dobbs keeps them all suarely in his sights as he traces American policy through those yearsA teenage girl survived Millions didn tThe Unwanted opens and closes through the eyes of Hedy Wachenheimer Fourteen years old she witnessed the madness unleashed throughout Germany by Kristallnacht Although she was used to being treated like a pariah that event proved to be a watershed Her life and that of her family and friends was never the same afterward Yet through good fortune and the resolute action of loving parents Hedy not only survived but six years after fleeing Germany she returned in an American military uniform as a translator for the OccupationBecause her parents had forced her to leave on a Kindertransport to England May 18 1939 Hedy was among the survivors of Kippenheim s Jewish community One hundred had left the village before her although many simply moved to larger towns and cities and were later sent to the death camps But most of those who remained after that event were not so lucky Thirty one were gassed at Auschwitz They were among the 6500 Jews deported from the state of Baden to concentration camps in unoccupied France in October 1940 Roughly one in four of the deportees died there many from typhus or malnutrition Four out of ten were deported to Auschwitz Eleven percent found refuge overseas mostly in the United States A further

Michael Dobbs ´ 9 SUMMARY

SUMMARY Ø The Unwanted E among increasingly hostile neighbors waiting for the piece of paper with a stamp that meant the difference between life and death And he recounts the debates over the fate of these refugees occurring simultaneously at the highest levels of the American government at a time when the public was deeply isolationist xenophobic and antisemitic Here is the riveting narrative of a small community struggling to survive amid tumultuous events and reach a safe haven despite the odds stacked against them. I found this to be a very good book I just can t finish at this time though Given the recent spate of anti Semitic attacks this month December 2019 I just can t bear reading about the holocaust right now Maybe sometime in the future 名探偵コナン 28 Detective Conan #28 piece of Cabin Boys paper with a stamp that meant the difference between life and death And he recounts the debates over the fate of these refugees occurring simultaneously at the highest levels of the American government at a time when the Yom Kippur as Manifest in an Approaching Dorsal Fin public was deeply isolationist xenophobic and antisemitic Here is the riveting narrative of a small community struggling to survive amid tumultuous events and reach a safe haven despite the odds stacked against them.
