In World War 2 (1939-1945) Jews had faced a lot of discrimination. Jews was not wanted into the United States. A few citizens had already lived here. There were only 21,000 Jewish citizens. They came to have some freedom. While Germany was taking over, what they would call their homeland. When the Jews came people would make fun of them due to what they looked like & would wear. Jobs did not want them. Signs were put up on public places they also didn’t want them. The United States thought that the Jews were going to blackmail them. Also the United States, had felt Jews were going to put them into the war. At that time the United States wanted to stay neutral & not have nothing to do with it while dealing with the Great Depression.
This document tells me that the anti-Semitism has always been discriminated against. But during the holocaust it was just different. People felt as if they were blackmailing the United States. At this time the United States did not want to go into the War while they were still kind of dealing with the Great Depression. However, employment & housing were being biased to the Jews. Social clubs & other things were but more in a polite way. By the 1950’s the discrimination has gone down. But still not all the way gone.
This document is telling me about a guy named Kurt Klein who was 17 in 1937. He is talking about His views & what he was trying to do. He left Germany & went to the United States so he wouldn’t have to deal with Hitler & all he was doing. He then planned on helping his parents get out of Germany as well. It says that majority of Americans was fearful of the immigrants and thought it would bring more problems to the Great depression. That is when the discrimination became worst. Nobody was willing to hire a Jew, signs were being made & a lot of places became restricted.
This chart shows the population of Jewish around the world. The chart tells the viewers the different places the Jews are from historic & today. Today life Most of the Jews live in Israel. The second place they stay is in the United States (about 5,454,000 Jews here of 2012). In Germany about only 119,000 Jews stay the leaving 0.9% there out of 15 other places listed. It relates to my topic because it seems that the discrimination level is going down.
What I learned from this is the United States Policy. I really did not know that they were actually policies against them. It mentioned how they thought some Jews were actually trying to blackmail the United States. Then the policy talks about how it changed over time. Now there are a lot more Jews then who could of be admitted into the United States.
Historians have long debated the extent of antisemitism in America's past and contrasted American antisemitism with its European counterpart. Earlier students of American Jewish life minimized the presence of antisemitism in the United States, which they viewed as a late and alien phenomenon on the American scene arising in the late 19th century.
From this website I’ve learned quit a few things about the discrimination. One thing I learned is that Jews was not wanted here. Another thing I learned is that there were only 21,000 refugees allowed here. Then I learned that U.S targeted the immigrants mostly the Jews. There are a lot of things going on during these times.
Today there are many more Jews living and welcomed into the United States. Jews take up about 2.1% of the United States population. A lot of Jews love it here. However a few are still discriminated against. I read a document that says a Jewish man was being discriminated against. The Jewish man was Wade Morris. Mr. Morris was not allowed to be apart of a Golf tournament because of who he was.Which is a Jew. Not only have he been discriminated against but others as well. Any discrimination race, religion, sex, or handicap is wrong. No one should have to experience it. Jews had to suffer but they came out stronger!
Jews in America from the Mid-Twentieth Century through today gives a lot of details about what was going on during the WWII. It tells the readers how Americans had a Low-opinion of Jews during the world War times. Then it tells us how the United States felt about the world war. After awhile entered it & ended it. But before this only certain amount of Jews was allowed in the United States anyways. Out of all the Americans only 21.2% of people felt there should be more Jews allowed. Jews later was admitted into the United States.

Alice Nelson's insight:
Although some discriminations don’t exists does not mean all of it is gone. In this document it mentioned how Angeles National Golf Club in Sunland Cali, held a tournament. However in this tournament, Wade Morris wanted to participate. It was a golf tournament. He was not able to because they claim he was a Jewish golfer. He then filled for a lawsuit (Complaint of Discrimination). This happened February 9th of 2011.
What this document shows me is that the Jewish population in the states grew from overtime (1899-2012). On this chart it shows how most Jews stay in New York. Leaving the least to say in South Dakota. But there is a Jew in every state now. The Percentage overall is about 2.1% of Jews living in the United States of 2012.

What this short Citation taught me was the where about of the Jews. The Jews went many places. Some of those places was Canada, Palestine & the United States. Great numbers had left the Germany lands. They were trying to go to a place where they called home.
