“This remarkable book shatters the myth that Americans lacked information about the dangers of Nazism. These diverse, historical sources from multiple voices across the United States leave us with troubling questions about the national will to respond to discrimination, war, and genocide.”
—Ken Burns, Lynn Novick and Sarah Botstein, Florentine Films

“This book is an important and exceptionally useful resource for the classroom. Any teacher or student who wants to get a feel for the prevailing sentiments in America during the prelude to World War II and during the war itself will be immensely aided by this important collection of voices. If you want to know what did people know and when did they know it, this collection will help provide the answer.”
—Deborah E. Lipstadt, Ph.D., author of Antisemitism Here and Now

This edited collection of more than one hundred primary sources from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s—including newspaper and magazine articles, popular culture materials, and government records—reveals how Americans debated their responsibility to respond to Nazism. It includes valuable resources for students and historians seeking to shed light on this dark era in world history.

Published in association with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
