Training Video for Educators: Challenges of Escape


During the 1930s, hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees tried to escape Europe and immigrate to the United States, but not everyone was successful. As the German government started to restrict the ability of Jews to earn a living, to own property, and to go to school it became difficult to leave, and challenging to find a country willing to accept them. This video can be used in a classroom with students.
