A number of smaller immigrant communities were formed mainly as a result of political persecution. Armenians, for example, regrouped in France during the 1920s after fleeing a campaign of genocide instigated by Turkey. At about the same time, more than 100,000 Russians hostile to the Bolshevik Revolution settled in France, mainly in the Paris area. Before the First World War, about 40,000 Jews had fled to France from the Russian Empire, where they were threatened by widespread pogroms. With the rise of Fascism during the 1930s, well over 100,000 Jews from Germany and Eastern Europe sought refuge in France.

Before the First World War, about 40,000 Jews had fled to France from the Russian Empire, where they were threatened by widespread pogroms. With the rise of Fascism during the 1930s, well over 100,000 Jews from Germany and Eastern Europe sought refuge in France.
