The Kennedy Assassination
Jensen J.Arthur

The Kennedy Plan  [A play]
Jensen J.Arthur

In this play of historical fiction, J.Arthur Jensen presents the story of Joseph Kennedy's service as Ambassador to England prior to and during the early months of World War II. This dramatization illustrates that negotiation rather than military conflict might have been used to address the Nazi threat.
In 1938, with tensions rising in Europe, President Franklin Roosevelt appointed Joseph P. Kennedy to be the United States Ambassador to the Court of St. James with instructions to support efforts to maintain the peace. Kennedy learned that much of the political tension was rooted in Nazi anger over the Treaty of Versailles-- the treaty which twenty years earlier had concluded the Great War. After he assessed the political choices, Kennedy supported Prime Minister Chamberlain's effort to maintain European peace by allowing the re-unification of the German people of the Sudetenland with Nazi Germany but he realized that the key to long term European peace was to create a mechanism for legal migration of Jews out of Germany. Kennedy lobbied for a plan which had been previously explored by British and American diplomats: allow Jewish migration to multiple different countries. Christened "the Kennedy Plan" by the press, the plan quickly brought condemnation from non-Jews who did not want new Jewish immigration and from Jews who favored only immigration to Palestine. As Hitler demonstrated the power of his new Luftwaffe and German Panzers, Kennedy urged negotiation and compromise. Voices to maintain peace were overwhelmed by voices for war and we are left to wonder if the Nazi threat was handled properly by the governments of the west. Might negotiation have avoided the massive loss of life that resulted from the Second World War?
