Officials in the Treasury had, by the end of 1943, come to suspect obstruction by the State Department in such attempts at rescue. After one such particularly blatant instance, the Secretary of the Treasury, Mr. Henry Morgenthau Jr., asked the Treasury's General Counsel, Randolph Paul, to look into the matter and to provide him with a report. Paul enlisted the help of his assistant General Counsel, Josiah E. Du Bois Jr. As the task was both delicate and complex, still another high ranking official was added to the team: John Pehle of the Foreign Funds Division. Their findings were so incriminating that Paul, a lawyer and the highest ranking legal officer in the Treasury, must have read and studied the report more than once before he put his signature on it. But he did. The report is eighteen pages long. Prepared by three government officials, all of them Protestants, it is titled REPORT TO THE SECRETARY ON THE ACQUIESCENCE OF THE GOVERNMENT IN THE MURDER OF JEWS. Its conclusions speak for themselves: These State Department officials are guilty of the following: 1. They have not only failed to use the Governmental machinery at their disposal to rescue Jews from Hitler, but they have even gone so far as to use the government machinery to prevent the rescue of these Jews. 2. They have not only failed to cooperate with private organizations in the efforts of these organizations to work out individual programs on their own, but have taken steps designed to prevent these programs from being put into effect. 3. They have not only failed to facilitate the obtaining of information concerning Hitler's plans to exterminate the Jews of Europe, but in their official capacity have gone so far as to surreptitiously attempt to stop the obtaining of information concerning the murder of the Jewish population of Europe. 4. They have tried to cover up their guilt by: a. concealment and misrepresentation. b. the giving of false and misleading explanations for their failures to act and their attempts to prevent action; and c. the issuance of false and misleading statements concerning the 'action' which they have taken to date."
