A Serious Influx of Jews

Author : Rodney Benjamin

Available : Rented
Age Group :Adults
In April 1933 the Nazis began persecuting German Jews in earnest. In June 1933, the Australian Minister for the Interior was warned by the Federal Cabinet to avoid a ??serious influx of Jews seeking to escape Nazi Germany. Despite this warning, a steady stream of Jews entered Australia and the Jewish population of Victoria expanded rapidly. This book tells the story of how a small community organised itself to find accommodation, work, financial assistance and English language training for the four major influxes of Jewish immigrants between the 1920´2 and 1950´s. Out of the organisations which formed to meet these demands grew a multi-faceted ethnic welfare agency.
