US response to the Holocaust

Well, obviously the Holocaust was a part of World War 2 going on in Europe, so the US decided to join in against Hitler and Germany, and began taking the correct measures. This meant drafting young men over 18 to fight, and allowing women to take over the men's jobs. Women had a very important role in this, many went to work in factories to make tanks and other war machines. Children helped by collecting scrap metal to turn in to make these machines, and saved up their money to buy war bonds. Fliers and posters displayed the American Patriot as one who helps their country in times like these, popular icons being Rosie the Riviter and Uncle Sam.
