By late 1938, Nazi policies had resulted in a refugee crisis, as Jews and other threatened groups attempted to flee the German Reich. During 1939, intense debate raged in Congress about legislation that would have allowed 20,000 refugee children into the United States outside of America’s restrictive immigration quotas. Join us for a thought-provoking conversation as we explore the history and controversy of the bill, public opinion at the time, and the legacy of immigration and refugee policies.
