Jewish Migration before and after WWII
Transcript of Jewish Migration before and after WWII
In the late 19th century before WWII lots of Jews were Religious abusiveness was huge. For example, in Russia attacks on Jews led to murders, rapes, and arson against Jewish homes and stores, often encouraged and assisted by the government. This pushed Jews to US or Canada. In the late 1940s after the Holocaust thousands of Jews fled to Israel. Push Factors There isn't any pull factors at the time since times were so hard. Jewish civilization were just trying to find a place where they can call home. Pull Factors Intervening Obstacles During World War 2 Jewish migration was very limted at the time. The Great Depression was going on and US couldn't afford refugees. They did end up getting 200,000 Jews. After the US entered the War refugees migration slowed down big time. Many Americans didn't like this. Atttitudes toward Jews are not as bad as it used to be. Before the war Jewish people were absolutely mistreated and abused. This caused World War 2. Jews are still hated, like in Israel but not as much. Now adays Palestinians and Israelis can't make peace, becasue of the religious differences between Arabs and Jews. Attitudes towards the Jewish Jewish were forced to many places after the Holocaust. Many countries accepted them as refugees. Many civilians didn't quite accept them though. The jews finally went to Israel in 1948 and those other countries in the Middle East were forced to accept them under the the protection of islamic jurisprudence Other Info about Jewish Migration Sources http://www.ijs.org.au/Jewish-Immigration-after-the-Second-World-War/default.aspx
