    Your comment is acinine and does notreflect any historical understanding. `Nevertheless, had the Allies bombed the train tracks and crematoria, not only those of Auschwitz, but also other death camps they knew about, the highle industrialized murder of the millions of Jews would at least have been interrupted. ~.- Sarah First I am sorry about your father. But I think that it is you that lack a historical understanding. Mid year 1944 the allies were involved in the invasion of Europe. Everything was devoted strictly to that effort which is how it should have been. Two, Auschwitz was at the extreme limit of the B-17?s range. The Allied air forces were concentrating on the transportation network in western Europe to support the invasion and advance thru Europe. The technical ability to bomb selectively as you suggest did not exist at that time. Russia crossed the Polish border in June 1944 and was not willing to allow allied planes to land and engage in shuttle bombing of military targets had already been requested and rejected by Russia. More importantly, the Gestapo had priority within Germany ahead of the army. That means the railroads and any other resource they needed for the extermination of the Jews came before any German war effort. The movement of the army and its supplies came after the Gestapo?s needs were filled. The American war effort was to bring the war to a close. That is what stopped ALL killing. Roosevelt was responsible for saving American lives. He and Churchill followed the correct course in discharging their responsibilities and in saving the greatest number of lives.
