1. Ifft, Leah M. Youngstown, Ohio Responds to Holocaust Era Refugees.

Degree: MAin History, Department of History, 2017, Youngstown State University

Beginning in the 1930s and ending in the 1950s, approximately one hundred and fifty European Jews came to Youngstown, Ohio in response to Nazi persecution. Many came to Youngstown because they had relatives already living in the area. These relatives connected Holocaust-era refugees to a new life in the United States. In the case of many displaced persons, who arrived after the end of the Second World War and the liberation of concentration camps, national and local social service agencies worked with members of the Youngstown Jewish community to facilitate their resettlement.Some stayed for a very short time and rebuilt their lives in other places in the United States. Some followed patterns similar to native residents of Youngstown. They stayed until economic conditions compelled them to leave the area. Others found remarkable success in Youngstown. They built businesses that employed others, established relationships within the community, and became another layer in the history of an area shaped by the cultures and experiences of the immigrants who came to call Youngstown home. Advisors/Committee Members: DeBlasio, Donna (Advisor).
