[Excerpt] This paper argues that in the Holocaust years the public Hillman, the labor leader, trapped in the tribal fires of his own modernity, stopped acting as a “deracinated citizen.” Between 1942 and 1946, he used his prestige and influence to facilitate the Zionist cause, without having it interfere with his other efforts on behalf of an anticolonial new world order lead by an American-Soviet alliance.
