Evian 1938 [electronic resource]: The Fear Conference

The Nuremburg Laws. Anschluss. The Munich Agreement. Kristallnacht. As the Nazi government grew in power, Jews recognized the necessity of emigrating en masse from their homelands in Germany, Austria, and the Sudetenland. Which countries would step forward to take them in? This chilling program scrutinizes the 1938 multinational conference in Evian-les-Bains, a half-hearted effort to help Jewish refugees that ended, essentially, in abandoning them to their fate. Insights are provided by historian Catherine Nicault as well as by Paul Schaffer and Laure Schindler-Levine, children at the time of the Evian Conference who experienced firsthand the life-or-death plight of an unwanted people with nowhere to go.
