The “Haavara Agreement”: Circular 54/1933 of the Reich Ministry of Finance, August 28, 1933
The Haavara Agreement was a pact between the Nazis and Zionists regarding Jewish emigration from Germany during the 1930’s. It is the only contract between an official Third Reich authority and a Zionist organization. This agreement is considered to have benefited the interests of both parties. Haavara was intended to promote both the emigration of German Jews and the export of German products to Palestine.
