Summary
  • "Buried by The Times: The Holocaust and America's Most Important Newspaper is an in-depth look at how the New York Times failed in its coverage of the fate of European Jews from 1939 to 1945. It examines the many decisions that were made up and down the chain of command at the Times - decisions that ultimately resulted in the minimizing and misunderstanding of modern history's worst genocide." "Laurel Leff recounts how personal relationships at the newspaper, the assimilationist tendencies of the Times' Jewish owner, and the ethos of mid-century America all led the Times to consistently downplay news of the Holocaust. It recalls in precise detail how news of the Nazis' "Final Solution" was hidden from Times readers and - because of the newspaper's profound influence on other media - from the larger American public."
  • "Buried by The Times is thus required reading for anyone interested in the Holocaust and America's response, as well as for anyone curious about how journalists determine what is newsworthy."--BOOK JACKET
