Antisemitism during the early 19th century
What mainly caused American Jewish Immigration during the 1900s-1930s?
I wrote the Bolshevik Revolution, but my teacher said Jewish immigration was not triggered by that.
This is what I wrote:
The Red scares were one reaction to the combined fear of communism that spread throughout the United States in the 1920s and the 1930s, as a result of Jewish immigration from Europe. During the Russian Revolution in World War I, Vladimir Lenin, with his faithful Bolshevik workers, led a successful revolution against Czar Nicholas in 1917, transforming Russia into a Communist state and inspiring American fear of Bolsheviks. During the 1900s, pogroms in Russia were violent attacks against Jews that continued in the 1920s, even with Lenin’s new leadership. Russian Jews saw the United States as an optimistic place of opportunity and safety for their families with Russia’s new leadership and the pogroms, and so at least thousands of Russian Jews started immigrating to the United States.
That means that my entire paragraph is wrong. I tried researching it, but I am also having no luck
