Officially Approved Emigration from Germany after 1941: A Case Study
This research paper analyzes the cases of a number of Jews enabled to leave Germany legally after 1941. Many of them were foreign nationals protected by their governments, or the Germans were willing to exchange them in the hope of retrieving German citizens held abroad. An official working in the German Foreign Ministry protected Jews holding Turkish citizenship. Some Dutch, Belgian, and German Jews holding Palestinian immigration certificates were exchanged for Germans in Palestine and other parts of the British Empire. A small number of wealthy Jews obtained permission to emigrate thanks to connections with a previously Jewish-owned bank.
