    The Évian Conference

    The Évian Conference

    The Évian Conference was convened 6–15 July 1938, at Évian-les-Bains, France, to discuss the Jewish refugee problem and the plight of the increasing numbers of Jewish refugees fleeing persecution by Nazi Germany. It was convened at the initiative of United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt who perhaps hoped to obtain commitments from some of the invited nations to accept more refugees, although he took pains to avoid stating that objective expressly. It was true that Roosevelt desired to deflect attention and criticism from American policy that severely limited the quota of Jewish refugees admitted to the United States.

    The conference was attended by representatives from 32 countries, and 24 voluntary organizations also attended as observers, presenting plans either orally or in writing. Golda Meir, the attendee from British Mandate Palestine, was not permitted to speak or to participate in the proceedings except as an observer. Some 200 international journalists gathered at Évian to observe and report on the meeting.

    Adolf Hitler responded to the news of the conference by saying essentially that if the other nations would agree to take the Jews, he would help them leave:

    I can only hope and expect that the other world, which has such deep sympathy for these criminals [Jews], will at least be generous enough to convert this sympathy into practical aid. We, on our part, are ready to put all these criminals at the disposal of these countries, for all I care, even on luxury ships.
    The conference was ultimately doomed, as aside from the Dominican Republic, delegations from the 32 participating nations failed to come to any agreement about accepting the Jewish refugees fleeing the Third Reich. The conference thus inadvertently proved to be a useful propaganda tool for the Nazis.

    Yes, he did make that offer. No one believed him when he said he wanted them out. You know where that got them.

    It is truly a burr in my back side when people who "love the jews" ignore there were not countries lining up to take the jews off their hands. Stupid people choose to allow themselves to be told what to think, and ignore the jews had been given the boot over and over and over from all areas except North America and never stop to ask themselves why?! Why is it obvious to me since a child and others are completely oblivious their whole lives until they die? Apologies my friend for the slight digression from topic.

    They don't want the truth. They don't want to admit to what you and I know even though they know it happened. To them, it's too incredulous to believe that no country wanted these leeches on society.

    I give Reichsführer Himmler and Obergruppenführer Heydrich the credit in trying to clear Germany and the Germanic lands of these leeches. Another 18 months and they would have succeeded.
