Yes America helped the Jews in the Holocaust.


During the Holocaust (that is the actual genocide) the only help that the U.S. or any Allied country gave was indirect - by defeating Germany. There was no military action targeted at stopping the Holocaust itself.

By the time the Americans and other Allies reached the concentration camps it was far too late. About six million Jews had already been murdered. For most of World War 2 the Allies did not want to know about the fate of the Jews, although they were receiving regular reports about what was happening.

Why did the usa not help the Holocaust?

The question seems to wonder why the United States did not partake in the Holocaust during WWII which is a rather absurd question. It seems that you're asking if the United States could have done more to prevent the horrors of the Holocaust. The pure and simple answer is that the United States made major contributions to ending the Holocaust including being a major participant in defeating Nazi Germany and actually liberating prisoners from prison camps. However, historians do debate if the United States could have done more. Typically, historians who argue that the United States did enough argue that any resources devoted by the US to stop the Holocaust ultimately diverts resources away from actually defeating Hitler. Historians who argue that the United States could have done more typically argue that the United States knew about the Holocaust and could have done something to slow the Germans down. The one problem with this is that the best method of stopping the Holocaust is to get the victims out of German custody and that is impractical without physically invading the continent.
