After war began, Bri-
tain refused to permit
20,000 Jewish children to
go to Palestine from Po-
land on the grounds that
to do so would free the
Germans from the
economic burden of hav-
ing to feed them, thus
helping the Nazi war ef-
fort.

A secret Foreign Office
document expressed the
hope that all German Jews
would be "stuck at the
mouth of the Danube for
lack of ships to take them."
At the height of the war, the
government refused to
allow into Britain even a
few hundred extra Jews
who might excape from the
Nazis, despite a plea by the
Archbishop of Canterbury.
Gilbert is no less critical
of. Britain's extraordinary
decision in November 1947
to curtail the trials of Nazi
war criminals and to en-
courage short sentences. "If
sentences err on the side of
leniency that is a fault on
the right side," one official
is quoted as saying.
That Gilbert's findings
are not an isolated reading
of the pre-war period is
borne out by another study,
just published here, of
'American attitudes towards
refugees from Hitler. Writ-
ing in "Patterns of Pre-
judice," issued by the Insti-
tute of Jewish Affairs,
Michael Maschberg, an
American scholar, con-
cludes that racial prejudice
was one of the principal
reasons for America's inac-

Zionism. To the extent that
they vindicate the anti-
British, anti-Weizmann
school of Zionist thought,
they could even be termed
"revisionist," but with a
small "r."
It was in the course of his
Churchill researches that
Gilbert found much of the
documentation on Britain's
foreign policy during the
1930's and 1940's. It sheds
new light on day-to-day
British pressure to prevent
Jews from escaping from
Europe both during the Hi-
tler years and after the war.
Here are some chilling
examples:
Only six months before
the war, Britain and the
United States asked Hitler
Germany to "discourage"
Jewish travel in ships
bound for Palestine and "to
check unauthorized emig-
ration" of Jews from the
Reich.

tion and procrastination in
regard to rescue of Jew , .

Maschberg's findings
add new weight to the
conclusions reached, 10
years ago, by the late Ar-
thur Morse, in his book
"While Six Million Died."
Maschberg writes:

"Although some in the
United States government
attempted to save the re-
mnant of European Jewry
in 1944 and 1945, they were
restricted and checked by
an almost universal pattern
of prejudice.
"The attempts to save
European Jews were
stymied by all concerned
nations, both Allied and
Axis: the Germans wanted
to kill Jews; the Poles, Hun-
garians, Romanians and
others helped; whereas the
Allied and neutral coun-
tries refused to permit large
scale rescue operations or to
allow the persecuted Jews
entry for temporary reset-
tlement.
"Britain, for example, re-
fused to' grant asylum to
more than a few Hunga-
rians and other Jews in
Palestine with full know-
ledge that such denial
meant extermination for
each Jew left in Nazi-
occupied Europe.

"France and the United
States respectably li-
mited their refuge to a
few thousand souls in
North Africa and
America. With little or no
help from the non-Axis
countries the machinery
in the death camps con-
tinued unabated . . ."

"Exile and Return," will be
published in Britain by
Weidenfeld and Nicolson
