In 1942 it was announced in Britain that the Germans were carrying out exterminations of the Jewish people, yet the British government continued to reject all proposals for saving the Jews. Based on archival sources, this book examines British policy towards the Jewish problem during World War II. It explores the reasons for the near-total ban on Jewish refugee immigration into Britain, the restrictive immigration policy in Palestine, the failure to aid Jewish resistance in Europe, and the rejection of the scheme for the Allied bombing of Auschwitz. What emerges is a story of bureaucratic complacency, inhumanity and blindness to the Jewish catastrophe in Europe.About the Author:
