The German surface fleet was no longer a significant force by then. Most of their heavy ships had been sunk and the remainder were confined to ports on Germany's North Sea coast. Allied air supremacy and sea power made it impossible for Germay's few remining ships to sally forth. Allied air power also denied Germany use of the French ports. Thus, even if their ships had wanted to leave port, they were much too far away to do anything about it.

Why didnt the American soldiers step in when the holocaust was going on?

The Americans, as a valuable member of the Allied forces, had to first cross the English Channel on D-Day, and fight their way across Europe to the very heart of Germany. If they could have done, the Allies would have gladly stepped in sooner, but the German forces were in the way.

What did the allies know about the nazi treatment?

I will assume you are referring to the treatment of POWs. ?About 80 percent of the German land forces was made up of Army soldiers (Heer) and generally the Geneva convention was enforced by the Heer, especially against the western allies. The Heer had large amounts of German military personnel that were in POW camps and wanted their soldiers treated decently, also. So generally Western Allied soldiers caught could expect to be treated descently. The SS Combat Forces, separate branch from the concentration camp SS, drew their combat experience from the eastern front, where surrendering to the Russians, just wasnt a option. As a result, Allies didnt take alot of SS prisoners and vice versa, but the SS Combat forces were a small part of the Wehrmacht (German Military Forces). From what I have read the average allied soldier didn't know much of the concetration camps until he came across them during the advance thru Europe. I suspect that the Allied Senior Commanders knew of the camps, but could do little until they owned the captured the camps.

Why didn't hitlers soldiers rebel against him?

Hitler used a powerful weapon called propaganda on not only the German soldiers but all of Germany. Hitler promised Germany that they would rule the world for thousands of years to come if they could defeat the allied campaign in the western and eastern fronts. So when the tied of the war turned in both fronts, the Normandy Landing in the West and the recaptureing of Stalingrad in the East many German generals figured out they couldn't win the war. There were many assassination attempts on Hitler by German officers and other high profile men. One of which nearly took the life of Hitler. So the name of your question should be why didnt ALL of hitlers soldiers rebel against him because some German soldiers did.

Why did The U.S. not help the Jews in the Holocaust until 1944?

The German front lines needed to be pushed back before the people could be helped. A good question is why didnt more of the German public get involved and try to help hide those that Hitler and his Nazi forces were putting into those camps. Some did do what they could but there were not enough of them to truly make an impact on the number of camp deaths.
