How Were Jews Discriminated Against From 1933 1939?

743 words - 3 pages

Anti-Semitism has affected the world since Biblical times. There are many disastrous events in history, such as the Black Death, where the Jews have been put to blame by society. In March 1933, when Hitler came to power in Germany by manipulating the Enabling Act, he started to put into action the discriminatory laws as promised. The Nazi Party wanted Germany to become a supreme race of strong, healthy people, called Aryans, without contamination from ‘dirty’ minorities such as the Jews. Through the period from 1933 to 1939 Hitler passed laws which started off by discriminating the Jews, such as burning Jewish books and forbidding them to join the Army, and then gradually put into effect active persecution, so that in 1939 Jews were beginning to be sent into the now famous concentration camps.

In April 1933, one month after Hitler gained a large amount of power in Germany, the Jews were intimidated by a national boycott of Jewish shops and services. They were beginning to be separated from German society as nobody could buy from them, and additionally, it would become difficult for many Jews to earn money, and their quality of life would be reduced.

The public had no idea what was coming, however. They understandably didn’t think it was possible for anything as atrocious as the Holocaust to happen in a civilised country like Germany; so many didn’t escape when they had the chance, but step-by-step they lost their human rights and their lack of power as a citizen was assured. Laws were put in place so that by 1939, Jews were not allowed to go to non-Jewish doctors, go out to restaurants or the cinema, shop in the morning for fresh produce, or go out of the house after a certain time in the evening. Their lives were taken away from them – their jobs, information from the radio, books, right to marry non-Jews, proper education, pet animals, homes and land, even part of their names. They had to have ‘Sara’ or ‘Israel’ added to their name and a large J printed on their passports...
