The St. Louis Affair occurred a few months before the outbreak of World War II. Because of increased Nazi terror larger numbers of Jews had begun to emigrate. The Cuban Director of Immigration had sold many landing permits wholesale to the Hamburg America Line, which resold these permits to individual Jews. A shift in Cuban policies invalidated the permits, but the line failed to inform the passengers. Thus when over 900 passengers arrived on the St. Louis at Havana, they were prevented from disembarking and forced to return to Europe. For the moment, they were saved by the unselfish actions of France, Holland, Belgium and Great Britain, which permitted the emigrants to land in their respective territories. Many of the documents selected for this volume are devoted to the St. Louis Affair. Others deal with similar landing problems, the emigration of 5000 Jewish children and obstacles to Jewish emigration created by the Nazis.
