Germany, 1890-1945


How did life change for Jewish people after 1933?


  • The SA organised a boycott of Jewish shops and businesses.
  • Books by Jewish authors were publicly burnt.
  • Jewish civil servants, lawyers and teachers were sacked, and Jewish doctors and dentists could not treat Aryans.
  • Jews were not allowed to own farms.
  • Science lessons about race were introduced which taught that Jews were subhuman.


  • The Nuremberg Laws stripped Jews of German citizenship, outlawed marriage between Jews and Germans,
  • Removed all the civil and political rights of the Jews (These laws were to be the foundation for much of the extreme persecution which took place later)
  • Jews were not allowed in the army.
