Americans and The Holocaust: Immigration and the Refugee Crisis
In March 1938, Germany’s sudden annexation of Austria (Anschluss) brought approximately 200,000 additional Jews under Nazi rule, creating an immediate refugee crisis. In this webinar, hear from the curator of the USHMM’s new exhibition Americans and The Holocaust, Dr. Rebecca Erbelding, on the history of the refugee crisis during the 1930s and America’s attitudes and opinions towards those who attempted to flee Nazi occupied Europe. Learn how to use USHMM’s History Unfolded project and resources from Echoes & Reflections to support classroom lessons on this topic.
