Chapter Summary

Due to the fact that during the early years of Nazism there was not much demand for refuge in Mexico or in the rest of Latin America in general, the prohibition of Jewish immigration issued in 1934 by the Ministry of the Interior did not have any immediate repercussions. The Society or League of Nations took up the matter of German refugees, Jewish and non-Jewish, beginning in 1933. In order to organize international aid, which was necessary to deal with problems of economic, financial, and social order that were caused by German refugees in various countries, the necessity of naming a high commissioner for refugees coming out of Germany was agreed on. Beginning in 1933 the small Jewish community in Mexico began to react to anti-Semitic policies implemented by Adolf Hitler's government in Germany. The flier, dated May 1933, called for direct action to be taken against the Nazi regime.
