The background of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime targeting the Jewish community remains a mystery.
Many of those who escaped the Holocaust, including from Germany, fled and took refuge in various countries. They are assisted by several organizations and individuals.
The following are some of the countries that became the refugee destination of the Jewish community after being expelled by the Hitler regime from Germany:
More than 60,000 Jews from Germany fled to Palestine during the 1930s. Mostly under the terms of the Haavara Agreement (Transfer).
Jews who emigrated to Palestine had a major obstacle, namely German laws which at the time eliminated the assets of those who fled.
According to the agreement, Jewish assets in Germany would be disposed of and the resulting capital transferred to Palestine through the export of German products.
A limited number of Jews entered Palestine during the war through illegal migration (Aliyah Bet).
