Japan that rescued Jews
The world in those days was cold to the Jews, as we can see in the case of the MS St. Louis, when they were sent back to Europe just before reaching the U.S. in 1939.
During the II World War, most of the nations of the world closed their doors to the Jewish refugees, while almost only Japan helped them.
As we can see in the fact that Japan proposed ‘Racial Equality Proposal’ to the league of nations for the first time in the world at the Paris Peace Conference, Japan made efforts to abolish racial discrimination as the national policy, and helped the Jewish refugees without any discrimination.
The result of the voting was 11 yes and 5 no. The majority was for this proposal. However, the chairman Woodrow Wilson declared that since it was not unanimous, this proposal would not be passed, although until then most of the decisions were done according to the majority.
