I have heard people say that if CNN and the Internet had existed in the middle of the last century, there would have been no Holocaust. I even believed that at one time, believing as well that if the civilized people of the United States could have seen the horrific acts of the Nazi regime, few if any Jews would have died. I should have known better. Long before there was an Internet, I took a course in Modern Jewish History while at New Paltz, and learned of the terrible apathy, in the face of knowledge, from the Roosevelt administration. Even before that, my Pop told me that FDR was an anti-Semite. The great, revered FDR and his equally anti-Semitic Secretary of State, Cordell Hull.
But this is the 21st century, and we would never tolerate another Holocaust! (Would we? Could we?)
