Transcript of Jewish Migration before and after WWII

Jewish Migration before and after WWII Important Statement The most important thing about the Jewsish Migration before and after World War II is that before World War 2 they were settled in Germany and Poland and was forced out of Germany and Poland to Israel Palestine because of the Holocaust. Jewish migration was international and was forced and voluntary at the time. The Nazis were killing millions of jews at the concentration camps and Jews were running away, so many countries like the US accepted refugees. Type of migration
In the late 19th century before WWII lots of Jews were Religious abusiveness was huge.
