Based on known and newly available information, this book explains when and why Hitler decided to destroy the Jews of Europe. It highlights the Allied refusal to deal with "the Jewish problem" in order to be able to fight Hitler, and the resulting dilemmas of international Jewish leadership. Aimed at readers interested in the politics of World War II, the Holocaust and its origins, and the role of Palestine in the subsequent rescue effort, this study contributes much to a continuing controversial debate.

'A real contribution to the field of Jewish, Nazi, and World War II studies.' Richard Breitman, American University 'Aronson's book is a major contribution to Holocaust historiography.' Henry Friedlander, Emeritus, Brooklyn College '... his passion never leads to bias; Aronson's book is a model of scholarly objectivity, supported by superb research. Hitler, the Allies, and the Jews is likely to become a standard work, to be consulted by anyone interested in Jewish and Allied reactions to the murder of the Jews in Europe.'
