Evian Conference

From July 6–15, 1938, delegates from 32 countries and representatives from refugee aid organizations attend the Evian Conference in Evian, France.

They discussed options for settling Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany as immigrants elsewhere in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Australia. The United States and most other countries, however, were unwilling to ease their immigration restrictions.
