cherrysui's insight:

In years before World War 2, anti-Semitism flourished in American. Americans sought someone to blame for their misfortunes and they had a “low-opinion” of Jews.  At the same time, anti-Jewish and anti-Jewish violence increased in Nazi Germany. Many German Jews sought to flee to America as discrimination and persecution increased. However, due to the National Origins Act of 1924, only a small percentage was allowed entry into the U.S. Since virtually every other country also refused to accept Jewish immigrant, most of these individuals were murdered in Nazi death camps during the Holocaust. World War 2 and the Holocaust had a tremendous effect on American’s Jews. After the Holocaust six million Jews were brutally murdered and hundreds of thousands were left as survivors in horrible displaced persons camps with nowhere to go.

Jewish experienced influence American immigration and asylum policies. Now, Jews are integrated into mainstream American culture and society more than ever before. American Jews have a strong sense of community Jewish communal organizations thrive. Unlike times past when opportunities were limited or when Jews changed their names to be more accepted by mainstream society, Jewish heritage is not typically seen as an obstacle to success. Jewish American experiences show that the struggle for greater equality and acceptance is part of American history and that this struggle can succeed.
