'Children in Europe Are Europe's Problem!'
Prof. Slayton examines the anti-immigration attitudes in the 1930s, as the country recovered from the Great Depression but before the worst of the horrors of World War II. These attitudes--and immigration legislation--began to change after Kristallnacht, but nativism and other oppositions, backed by national doubt and disillusion, kept the US from doing all it could to help the Jews trapped in Germany.
