Best Answer

The United States wasn't involved until later in the war. They didn't join until after Pearl Harbor in 1941 (December 7). Then the US was focused mainly on Japan but later became involved with liberating Jews from concentration camps. This was their primary role during the Holocaust. So to sum it up, the US was one of the main liberators of camps during the holocaust.
