GUEST POST: SEVEN TIMES STRONGER

SEVEN TIMES STRONGER
a guest post by Mr. Cohen -- about American anti-Semitism during the Holocaust
 
Popular concern for Europe’s Jews could not develop without wide-spread knowledge of what was happening to them.  But the information gap, though extremely important, was not the only limiting factor.

Strong currents of anti-Semitism and nativism in American society also diminished the possibilities for a sympathetic response. A quieter, more prevalent prejudice, a “passive anti-Semitism,” was another major barrier to the growth of concern. 

It was reflected in opinion surveys taken by the [USA] Office of War Information.
 
They showed that the impact of atrocity information on the average American was 
SEVEN TIMES STRONGER when it involved atrocities-in-general, than when
it referred specifically to atrocities against Jews.
