    I see many people trying place some blame on everyone from the plight of the Jews in WWII. That is revisionist history. Whenever a country does something that annoys Jews they attempt to spread the blame to them. Lately posters here have accused Norway of helping the Nazis by selling heavy water to them. They have accused Holland of collaboration. Every country that was occupied the Nazis took what they wanted. And everywhere some people were coerced or took advantage to advance or protect themselves at the expense of others. This includes Jews as well, Kapo?s being an example. I have seen Roosevelt vilified because in 1939 he did not allow a ship of Jews to land and be given refugee status. What no one care to understand is that Roosevelt was restricted by the immigration laws passed by congress and he was bound by this law. However, later before the end of the war Roosevelt allowed Jewish refugees into America under a very liberal interpretation (actually misinterpretation) of a law passed during the war. These were sent to a refugee camp in Oswego , NY. This is what I meant by my remarks that only the Nazis were responsible and I reject any attempt to portray history as something it was not. Particularly blaming America for any part of it directly or indirectly. I do not think it fair to blame any of the occupied countries either. Here is a tip that if you pursue long enough you can find the law that prevented Roosevelt from admitting the refugees on the SS St. Louis and also the law he used to admit the refugees in mid 1944. Google; Jewish refugees in Oswego NY. It takes some effort to locate references to the exact laws I am referring to but if you are interested you can do it. What could have been or what some people think could have been are not consistent with the facts.
