"During the twelve years of Nazi terror, from 1933 to 1945, 
while the United States accepted more than 200,000 Jewish 
refuges; Palestine, 125,000; embattled Britain, 70,000; 
Argentina, 50,000; penurious Brazil, 27,000; distant China, 
25,000; tiny Bolivia and Chile, 14,000 each, Canada found
room for fewer than 5,000." (Abella, x)
