How Did the British Cope With the Arab Revolt of 1936-39 and The Evian Conference

TFJ Series 2: Episode 2 The Arab revolt resulted in widespread violence across the land aimed at both Jewish and British targets. British officer and Christian Zionist, Orde Wingate trained Hagana fighters how to defend themselves. These troops assisted the British in quelling the Arab Revolt. These very same troops instructed by the British would become members of a Jewish revolt against the British less than ten years later. As the world was shocked by the atrocities performed against the Jews featured in the news after the Anschluss in March 1938, there was pressure in Washington to make a humanitarian effort on behalf of the refugees. America announced the Evian Conference to take place in July 1938 at Lake Geneva composed of 32 countries to alleviate the refugee crises.

This sent a clear message to Hitler that he would do whatever he wished and the suffering of millions of humans in Europe did not interest the world.
