The allies, herzl's testament, the holocaust and limitations of jewish policies, july 1944

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

On 10 July 1944, the fortieth anniversary of Herzl's death, David Ben-Gurion, then chairman of the Jewish Agency Executive, delivered a public speech concerning the situation of Zionism and the Jewish people at that point in time. The part of his speech, sharply accusing the Allies of total indifference to the fate of the Jews under Nazi occupation, was omitted from the collection of his essays published in 1957. This article explains the omission as an outcome of Israel's growing political and economic reliance on the west in the fifties, despite the anger accumulated in the Yishuv against the Allies in the forties.
