Question by koko99: How many Jews were there in Europe before WW2 and after?
Answer by CallMeMikeDexter,Please
Pre-World War II, there were likely about 8-9 million Jews in Europe–Russia included. Most of these Jewish communities that were decimated existed in what we know as Eastern Europe: Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Hungary and Lithuania. However, there were vibrant Jewish communities in Austria and Czechoslovakia and even France and Greece. Germany, before World War II, had a Jewish population of somewhere around 50,000 people, which begs the question why, in a nation of 60+million people, Germans would have been so fixated on this fabricated Jewish threat. Many Jews from Eastern Europe were the first emigrees to Israel before and after the war. From there, Arab Jews and Jews from Western Europe followed. Russian Jews have made up a big portion of Israel’s population.
