Here, in PDF format, is a version of the original report as it was supplied to the War Refugee Board entitled TESTIMONY OF TWO ESCAPEES FROM AUSCHWITZ-BIRKENAU EXTERMINATION CAMPS AT OSWIECIM, POLAND

The Vrba Wetzler Report Received in Washington DC.pdf

Seven months after the findings of the Vrba-Wetzler Report reached the War Refugee Board of the U.S. government in April of 1944,  a bald-faced lie appeared in the third paragraph of the government’s official release of that report on Sunday, November 26, 1944:

“The War Refugee Board is engaged in a desperate effort to save as many as possible of Hitler’s intended victims.”

No individual is listed as the author of the aforementioned sentence, quite likely because there remained a paper trail to substantiate an accusation that, in fact, the United States of America had clearly decided NOT to act upon the irrefutable reportage attributed to “two young Slovakian Jews who escaped in April, 1944.”

It has taken almost a lifetime since the full text of the Vrba-Wetzler Report was officially and anonymously accepted by the Executive Office of the President, War Refugee Board, for that aforementioned italicized boast of righteous intentions and actions by the United States to be challenged by historians–and this website.

As is now made clear by the Desk Murderer section, it was chiefly John J. McCloy—acting on behalf of 76-year-old  Republican Party politician and WRB member Henry L. Stimson, who served as Secretary of War (1940–1945) under Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman—who went out of his way to ensure the United States did not interfere with Hitler’s slaughter of Jews, facilitating millions of murders as a result.
