About this event
Half a million Jews lived in Germany in 1933, primarily in Berlin. Nevertheless, as political power changed as a result of Nazism, a wave of Jewish emigration began. The new Regime quickly passed a series of Racial Decrees, known as the Nuremberg Laws, which made life intolerable for all Jews. It ended their illegibility to be citizens, to marry non-Jews, hold office, or employment in many sectors of the economy. They were categorized as “subjects” and became nationless in their own country.
Come learn how Haiti became a place of refuge for many Jewish families.
