Introduction

Question 1. Describe the treatment of Jews in Germany in the Years 1933 - 1937 When Hitler became chancellor in 1933, the treatment of the Jewish population in Germany, gradually became worse and worse. The worst treatment, however, went to the adults. In April 1933, SS troopers threw thousands of Jewish shopkeepers, doctors and civil servants out of their jobs. Some were even taken to concentration camps to work, sometimes until death. By the time this had settled down, those Jews who did have their shops were boycotted by Nazi troops.

Conclusion

Jews were also humiliated. They were forced to wear a star of St David on all of their clothes and there were different colours of stars for different people. Many Germans who used to be friends with Germans were suddenly forced to hate. But for Germans who stayed friends with Jews, it was about to get worse. They were thrown up in concentration camps and forced to wear signs that proclaimed them friendly with an 'inferior race'. By 1937, nearly all Jews were unemployed. Many had been taken to concentration and death camps, either to be worked or executed. This is how the discrimination of the Jews changed from mockery to murder in the space of four years.
