In 1933, the Nazis organised a boycott of all Jewish businesses, doctors, dentists, etc. Jewish shops were marked with the star of David and the word 'Jude'.

Jewish children were intimidated at school and Germans were taught that Jews were unclean and responsible for Germany's defeat in the First World War.

In 1935, the Nuremberg Laws were introduced in Germany. Under these laws:

  • Jews could no longer be German citizens
  • marriages between Jews and Aryans were forbidden.


It is not clear how much most Germans knew about the persecution…
