About the Book

There is a great debate among historians regarding Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s actions during the Holocaust: Was FDR the hero that defeated the Germans, or did he turn a blind eye to the plight of the Jews as long as he possibly could? In Roosevelt and the Holocaust, Robert Beir gets to the truth behind Roosevelt’s role. Beir has a unique perspective: He is a Jew who was raised during the extreme anti-Semitism of the Great Depression. Having witnessed the outcome of the “New Deal” firsthand, Beir became a Roosevelt scholar. Later, when confronted by a student about Roosevelt’s role in the Holocaust, Beir began to research the subject intensely. He ultimately concludes that Roosevelt acted neither out of anti-Semitism nor moral outrage over the persecution of the Jews. Rather, he acted in a way he felt would best navigate the United States through this tumultuous time.
