The Evian Conference
General Refugee Problems
- From July 6-15 1938, a conference was held to figure out plans of taking in refugees.
- Several delegates ruled out their countries from taking refugees from Nazi Germany.
- Only the Dominican Republic agreed to taking in large amounts of refugees, while other countries stated that they had no real racial problems, so they refused.
The Americans were reluctant to accept the refugees, but the conference held allowed several thousands of refugees to enter countries, and escape Germany. Congress had set up an immigration quota for each refugee taken in. The International Committee saved some lives of the holocaust members, but all f them couldn't be saved.
