British Jewry and the Holocaust: With a New Introduction

Richard Bolchover

Liverpool University Press

This chapter outlines the context of British Jewry's response to the Holocaust. It examines the information that was available to the Anglo-Jewish community about events behind Nazi lines and summarises the main conclusions of the existing body of scholarly literature on diasporic response to the Holocaust. In order to assess the response of Britain's Jewish community, the chapter asks what actual facts were known to the community at the time. In the years since the Holocaust, mountains of documentary and photographic historical evidence have emerged. But here the chapter takes the huge mental leap to ask what was known to those who could have only second-hand information at the time.

Keywords:   diasporic response, Holocaust, second-hand information, British press, European Jewry, Jewish powerlessness
