Since the late 19th century the issue of women trafficking was of high visibility on public and on political agendas in Europe as well as in the US and other countries. The fight against women trafficking was a duty of the League of Nations and there was a special committee devoted to researching the subject. Each member state of the League of Nations had to deliver a report about women trafficking each year; there was a close cooperation between police organisations and NGOs at every level from bottom to top. This very developed network was destroyed by the consequences of the NAZI-Regime in Germany. Today fighting against women trafficking still suffers from this destruction of a well developed cooperation against the organized crime of women trafficking.
