Flight and Emigration

When was the best time to leave Germany? What was the best destination?

Deprived of their livelihoods, excluded from society, and treated like second-class citizens, many Jews fled their German homeland in the 1930s. However, only half of all Jews managed to leave the country by the outbreak of war. After that emigration was illegal.

This workshop about flight and emigration focuses on the fears and hardship of the Jewish population and the growing difficulties faced by those wishing to leave.
