I actually recall more

I actually recall more stories of Jews trying to escape from places that they were being forced to stay.

Trying to make sense of government action is a trip down a long, scary path. Thousands of years ago Jews were used as slave labor, like pretty much any other conquered people back then. More recently they have been perceived as a threat to the governing elite.
