Life in Nazi Germany
(1933 - 1939)
Nazi Policy Towards Jews.
Other Persecuted Minorities.
The Nazi Party and the Church.
Nazi Economic Policy.
Adolf Hitler was the dictator of Germany, which meant he held absolute power and had to answer to nobody.
Germany became a totalitarian state, which meant a state where all political parties were banned except the Nazi Party that controlled every aspect of life.
It was a police state where the secret police, the Gestapo, spied on everyone and had the power to the right to arrest, torture, imprison and kill people without trial.
Anybody who criticised Hitler and the Nazi Party would be arrested and sent to concentration camps to be used as slave labour or would be executed.
Hitler declared Germany under his rule to be the “Third Reich” which would last a 1000 years and the German Aryan master race were destined to rule the world.
The reasons why Hitler hated Jews included:
He viewed Jews as the bottom of all the races that he defined as “subhuman.”
They were a useful scapegoat for the Nazis to blame all of Germany’s problems on.
He blamed Jews for Germany defeat during the First World War and the Treaty of Versailles.
He blamed wealthy Jews for trying to secretly rule the world through control of banks and other international financial institutions.
He blamed Jews for new cultural changes that he saw as threatening to traditional German cultural values and traditions.
He blamed Jews for Communism because the founder of the Communism, many leaders of the Russian Revolution and of the German Communist Party were Jewish.
Nazi policy towards Jews (1933 - 1939):
Nazi policy towards Jews between 1933 to 1939 was based on pressuring all the Jews of Germany to leave the country. The decision to murder all Jews in gas chambers during the Holocaust (which the Nazi’s called The Final Solution) was not made until after the Second World War broke out when forcing Jews to leave Europe was no longer possible.
The Nazi’s pressured Jews to leave Germany (emigrate) by:
The Boycott (1933).
The Nuremberg Laws (1935).
Kristallnacht/The Night of Broken Glass (1938).
The Boycott (1933):
The Nazi’s launched anti-Semitic national propaganda campaign against Jews as soon as they seized power in 1933.
In 1933 the Nazi’s organised a boycott of Jewish businesses in which they encouraged Germans to avoid using business owned by Jews.
By 1934 Jews and their businesses had to display a yellow star to show that they were Jewish and to warn Germans from dealing with them.
Jews were forced to use separate facilities like swimming pools from Germans and were sacked from government posts, education and the media.
The Nazi’s were trying to pressure Jews to leave Germany by humiliating them and making them feel unwelcome in their own country.
The Nuremberg Laws (1935):
