With the annexation of Austria and Czechoslovakia in 1938, and due to the restrictive quota, the waiting list for those who wanted to enter the United States from Nazi-occupied Europe grew to span ten years. With the obstacles to leaving becoming insurmountable, Europe’s Jews, and hose who strove to help them, became creative and sought any and every opportunity for escape.

Join United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Curator Susan Goldstein Snyder as she explores the ways Americans, Jews and non-Jews, attempted to help the Jews of Europe who were increasingly living under the Nazi cloud.
