They were viewed as a threat to the American security hence a number of measures were taken to isolate them.

Please, let the reader understand, it is not the endless litany of how many Jews were killed on this day or how many were transported on that day. No; Browning has wrought a work which showcases the “ordinary men” following orders, doing their job because those are the orders they were given. The first incident at Jozefow seared the consciences of the men involved and after that, what was left? Who could protest anything after participating in a bloody massacre, herding men, women and children into a woods and shooting them in cold blood? As Browning demonstrated, well over eighty percent of the...

This lowering of the soldiers’ morale was informed by the feeling that the restrictions were risky to their lives since ROE had restrained them from fighting freely the way they should have.
