Some Jewish historians are dismissing an apology by Henry Kissinger, in response to a 1973 recording of him saying that sending Jews to a Soviet gas chamber "is not an American concern."The former secretary of state followed immediately after a conversation Kissinger and President Richard Nixon had with Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. In the meeting, Meir asked the U.S. to pressure the Soviet Union to release its Jews. Nixon and Kissinger declined. Kissinger is stated that "The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy” "And if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe an humanitarian concern."
