"They did not bomb, even once, the railroad lines leading to the gas chambers and crematoria or the death camp itself, although there were thousands of air raids and tens of thousands of bombs dropped near Auschwitz ..." 1. You could only bomb the railway lines by mistake[or with great deal of fortune] with the limited abilities of allied bombers in WW2. 2. If the bombers *did* get lucky, the rail-lines could be replaced within hours. 3.If you attempted to bomb the crematoria, the same limitations applied with the added certainty that thousands would be killed in every attempt to do so. These crematoria could also be replaced within relatively short periods-or simply the Nazis would go back to earlier methods of killing. 4. Most American Jewish leaders in WW2 accepted this analysis and supported the argument that the best way to save lives was win the war as fast as was possible.
