Once the Nazis gained power, they lost no time in exploring means of eliminating Jews from the German scene. At times, Nazis encouraged Jews who could afford it to emigrate; at other times, they blocked them. Responding to their plight, the nations represented at an international conference held at Evian-les-Bains in France considered facilitating Jewish emigration from Germany. But the failure of most countries to accept large numbers of penniless Jews prevented them from escaping, and so condemned them to near-certain death. The records reproduced in this volume pertain to the Evian-les-Bains conference, a report on Eichmann's trip to Palestine, emigration of Jews to Palestine and various transfers of Jewish capital out of Germany.
