1939 May 17 The White Papers of 1939

Who: United Kingdom & United States

What: Limited immigration of Jews to 10,000 per year and prevented the legal importation of weapons.

Where: Palestine

Why: The White Papers were established and enforced at the same time that European antisemitism was reaching critical mass; limiting emigration into Palestine to 10,000/year at a time when Auschwitz was killing Jews at a rate of 10,000/day. The limitation of Jewish immigrants reflects the antisemitism of the United Kingdom and the United States who were enforcing the White Papers.
