The Anti-Nazi Boycott Movement in the United States

The anti-Nazi boycott was widely embraced by the American Jewish Congress in 1933 against the wishes of the German Jews and Dr Wise. Accordingly, there were two boycott movements – “non-sectarian” and “Jewish.” Later, labor unions, Jewish and non-Jewish, joined the boycott, which became more non-sectarian. All in all, the boycott was a moral success and to some extent led to a decrease in German exports to both the United States and Great Britain. However, flight taxes paid by German refugees totaling 346,000,000 Reichsmarks and exports to South America and Russia, and other countries prevented German bankruptcy.
