A Century of Organized Jewish Migration
This piece highlights a century's worth of Jewish migration to various parts of the world. From the period of 1848 to 1948, as a result of repeated migration waves, a total of four millions Jews shifted from Europe to the Western Hemisphere, Palestine, South Africa and Australia. The piece highlights that in 1869, the first activities for the benefits of migrants were coordinated on an international scale. The experiences in the field of migrant aid in the past hundred years show that much more could have been done for emigrants by a central emigration agency. Better information, better preparedness, better coordination of programs could have been achieved. The piece concludes by stating that hundreds of thousands still wait liberation to be brought out of Europe and the hope is that organizations will tackle the problem with success.
