When World War I ended in 1918, the Treaty of Versailles promised to restore Poland to a united and independent nation. However, political and economic insecurity, along with increased anti-Semitism, swept the country. About 70,000 Eastern European Jews immigrated to Paris after the war. Compared to the Jews who arrived in France from the Third Reich between Adolf Hitler's rise to power in January 1933 and the outbreak of war, they were less economic immigrants than political refugees who were unwilling or unable to live under the new Nazi regime. In addition, these immigrants tended to be better educated and relatively more affluent. This chapter looks at the situation of Jewish immigrants and political refugees in France during the period 1933–1939, focusing on the experiences of Jacques and Paulette Samson, Lya Haberman, William Blye, and Charles Roman.
