Australia during the Holocaust: Nothing has changed

“We have no real racial problem, we are not desirous of importing one”


“Australia, though her indignation is deep and her sympathy sincere, can absorb but a few thousand of them at most. It is in reality not a problem for Australia, but for Europe…”


“Australia has her own particular difficulties…migration has naturally been predominantly British, and it (is not) desired that this be largely departed from while British settlers are forthcoming.”


“We have plenty of trades and business people in Australia now, and the Jews who are coming here will be of no help to a producing country like Australia. For every Jew who is given a professional job in Australia, an Australian will be shut out.”


“Australian workers are being dismissed, and their place taken by refugees … so far as Australia is concerned they are not required here.”
