Scope and Content of Collection

Relates to the reaction of the media and the government in the United States to the Jewish holocaust in Europe during World War II. Conference sponsored by the Harvard Divinity School, the Neimann Foundation, WCVB-TV, and the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith.
Speakers include Lenard Zachem, Dan Yankelovich, Angus Thuermer, Daniel Schorr, Richard C Hottelet, Irving Dilliard, David Ginsburg, Oscar Gass, Colonel Bernard Bernstein, Deborah Lipstadt, and Richard Breitman. Yankelovich, a social scientist, begins the conference by illustrating the state of Jewish relations in the U.S. through the use of polling data beginning in 1935. Subsequent speakers touch on such themes as xenophobia, isolationism, anti-Semitism, and the general disinterest from the press to stories of the Jewish experience, as told by Jews, during the war.
