I have just read "Roosevelt and the Holocaust" by Robert L. Beir. I recommend it highly. In it Beir writes "...that, at best, Roosevelt was sympathetic to the Jews, and at worst Roosevelt resorted to political expediency...'he could have aroused substantial public backing by speaking out...but he had little to say about the problem and gave no priority at all to rescue' (quoting D. Wyman) p. 263."
