In 1937, Jews throughout the world were facing different very different realities. The lives of Kurdish Jews were dominated by a belief in demons and superstitions. Though incredibly expensive, German Jews continued to keep kosher with the help and funding from Jewish agencies. In order to protect the Jewish community in China, a Jewish Self Protection Corps was been assembled to guard the Jewish quarter. In Costa Rica, a large amount of land has been purchased in the hopes of relocating German refugees.
