New FDR Bio Whitewashes His Holocaust Failure
Yet another new biography of Franklin D. Roosevelt is climbing the sales charts and getting positive reviews from the media — despite its whitewash of FDR’s response to the Holocaust.
Jean Edward Smith’s 880-page book, FDR, published by Random House, acknowledges that the U.S. failed to take significant measures to help the Jews in Europe. But Smith refuses to assign any of the responsibility to President Roosevelt. Again and again, he tries to find other parties to blame.

Webmaster note: We’re no fans of FDR, but on what basis was he supposed to act? We don’t even have evidence today — more than sixty years after the alleged mass extermination of millions.
