* Volume 14, The Holocaust: Selected Documents in Eighteen Volumes. As the extermination of the Jews by the Nazis became known in the West, various groups attempted to relieve suffering and rescue Jews. These consisted primarily of a number of Jewish organizations and the War Refugee Board established by President Roosevelt in January 1944. Although the relief arrived too late for most and under the circumstances was not extensive, it aided thousands of Jews. The facsimiles reproduced in this volume pertain to the emigration of the owners of important industrial firms in Hungary in exchange for cession of their holdings to the SS, relief for the persecuted Jews of Transnistria in Rumania, activities of the War Refugee Board and the unsuccessful attempts by Jewish organizations to persuade the War Department to bomb the extermination facilities at Auschwitz and railroad centers leading there from Hungary. Contains 10 documents of source materials, carefully chosen from the thousands preserved at the U.S. National Archives. A detailed table of contents lists and provides the source for each document.
