Holocaust project focuses on what Americans knew and when
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - 04/25/2016
Laurel Leff, an associate professor of journalism at Northeastern University in Boston, thinks “trying to find out what Americans knew about the Holocaust at the time is a really important project.”
She is the author of “Buried by The Times,” a roundly praised 2005 book that found that The New York Times altered and downplayed coverage of the Holocaust in part because of the views on Judaism of its Jewish owner at the time, Arthur Hays Sulzberger.
Ms. Leff, who is Jewish, said she grew up being told that “Americans did not know about the Holocaust” while it was ongoing.
