The holocaust GCSE COURSEWORK Q1. 'Describe how Jews were discriminated against Germany from 1933 to 1939?' In my answer I am going to tell you how Germany and Hitler discriminated Jews from the dates of 1933 to 1939. 1933 was the start of the discrimination the Jews. All of this started when a man named Adolf Hitler became Chancellor in Germany. Hitler became the leader of the German government and stomped his authorities by making his own rules. Hitler had something against Jewish people, maybe he held a grudge from something that might have happened to him in his earlier life. Hitler's plan was so get rid of inferior races, disabled, gypsies and Jews. The first thing Hitler did was he forced Jews out of jobs such as law, civil service, journalism, dentistry, teaching and farming. This was just the start of how Germany treated Jewish unfairly. Also the next thing to come was the April boycott, this was a day where Germans all over the country were not aloud to buy from shops and businesses owned by Jewish people. ...read more.


Next Hitler banned all Jewish people from athletic and sports clubs. Sports could be a way Jews get out and socialise and to have fun. This is taking something out of their lives. Hitler obviously didn't think Jewish people were worthy enough to socialise and to do things with the rest of the German public. All of this must have been getting Jews depressed. In 1935 Jewish people were stopped preaching or speaking publicly, also Jewish newspapers and magazines were suspended and Jewish writers and editors were arrested. This is completely discriminating the Jewish religion and could be labelled as 'racist'. Jewish people must have of been disheartened by this because they felt no longer able to be proud of their religion. They must have been ashamed and embarrassed to call them selves Jewish in the German public. During the five years between 1933 -1939 the Kristallnacht was one of the biggest things that happened against the Jews favour. It was one awful night where a random act of violence struck all over Germany and Austria. ...read more.


This treatment to the Jews was bad for the future. There were problems with education for Jewish. The world needs there to be good education for people to be clever and get good jobs and invent knew things. With the problems the future didn't look bright in Germany. With the German business owners not employing Jews and Jews not being aloud to work, this started bringing down the economy. For example there could be a Jewish person that could do a job better than the non Jew that gets the job. Also Jewish had good businesses in Germany for the public. With these businesses not being aloud to run there was fewer things to buy. Jewish stores and synagogues were smashed and burnt down as there were boycotts and seizers. Jewish people needed work to provide money. After time most Jews if not all were too poor to live properly. This was a big problem for Jews and Germany. There wasn't a nice atmosphere in the country because Jews felt unwanted and discriminated by the Nazis and it reflected that way to everyone from Germany. If Germans followed the Nazi rule then Jews felt like they were not equal with Germans. ...read more.
