Emigration
   Prior to October 1941, Jews living in areas under German occupation could still emigrate. From 1933 to 1938, the Nazis encouraged Jewish emigration from Germany. Nazi policy toward Jewish emigration changed after Kristallnacht, when a policy of intimidating Jews to leave Germany through violence and the confiscation of property was promoted by the government. Prior to 1939, some Germans Jews emigrated to Palestine, but others found restrictive immigration quotas barring their entry into countries such as the United States. Once Nazi Germany turned to the implementation the Final Solution, following the invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, it became increasingly difficult for Jews to leave Europe. By October 1941, Jews were not permitted to leave those areas under German occupation.
