Summary
A troubling picture of the U.S. during a time beset by anti-Semitism and a government that, due to complex social and political factors, delayed action and suppressed information and blocked efforts that could have saved hundreds of thousands of people from the Holocaust. Focuses on the case of Kurt Klein, who attempted to battle the bureaucratic stonewall as he tried to get his Jewish family out of Germany
