•    Opens up a major new area for research

Whilst the subject of bystanders to the Holocaust has constituted an important part of Holocaust research in the last decades, historians have focused mainly on the two major Western Allied powers, the United States and the United Kingdom. This new volume represents the first attempt at broadening this important research area to include how the other members of the anti-Hitler alliance helped to shape the attitudes and responses to the Nazi persecution and extermination of European Jewry. Specifically the volume looks at the ‘Jewish policy’ of the various governments-in-exile that were established during the war in London and elsewhere, offering for the first time a comparative perspective on an important topic.
