Historians Withheld Evidence of Presidents’ Antisemitism

Several prominent historians have withheld documents that reveal unflattering remarks about Jews made by presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman, according to new research by Dr. Rafael Medoff, founding director of the Wyman Institute.
The revelations will appear in his essay, “Antisemitism in the White House,” by  which will appear later this year in the 2014 volume of Antisemitism in America, a multidisciplinary series of books published by Academic Studies Press and edited by Prof. Eunice G. Pollack. 
“Unfortunately, some historians have chosen to withhold documents, or portions of documents, that reflect unfavorably on FDR’s views [about Jews],” Dr. Medoff writes. “Such actions in effect amount to censorship of portions of the historical record, contravene accepted standards of scholarly research, and have impeded the public’s understanding of the Roosevelt administration’s response to the Holocaust.”
