This thesis is an examination of immigration and refugee policy in the United Kingdom, France, the United States, Canada and Australia in the 1930s. This thesis attempts to determine the causes of the responses by these five countries to the German-Jewish Refugees crisis that began in 1933. After examining possible historical, political, cultural and economic causal factors, it is determined that unemployment is the key determinant of a country’s response to this crisis.
