Describe how Jews were discriminated against in Germany from 1933 to 1939. The Jews were discriminated against in Germany between 1933 -1939 because of prejudice and discrimination. Jews were given a formal judgment before knowing all the facts because of an opinion not based on reason or experience. The Jews were discriminated because they were treated differently and unfairly based on grounds of religion and race. Jews were discriminated based on freedom and rights. They had no political right, their personal life and standard of living was taken away and they had no equal opportunities because they were seen as different. I believe the first way that Jews were discriminated on was when they lost their political right due to being different and following a different religion. In 1933 Jews lost protection by law (freedom from attack), the police and courts did not protect the Jews from random acts of violence created by Nazi thugs. In 1935 Jews were no longer citizens of Germany, and were no longer seen as citizens and therefore lost their right to vote. In 1935 many Jews were imprisoned without a fair trial, and were sent to labour camps and then in 1941 Jews were deported to over crowded ghettos. ...read more.


Jews in Berlin were only allowed to purchase groceries between 4pm and 5pm. Telephones were disconnected, but before that the Nazis used to tap into people phones and listen to their conversations. Many Jews could not dress as they liked and had to wear old baggy clothes, they were not allowed to wear the latest fashion, because by buying these clothes they were taking the money of Germans who work had. Overall many Jews personal lives were affected by the Nazis and their rules and laws because by the end they would end up with nothing because they lost it all too political rights. Thirdly Jews equal opportunities were discriminated because in 1942 they were not allowed to buy books, newspapers or magazines. They were banned from public libraries and Jewish publishing houses and bookshops were closed down. In 1933 in many places Jews were banned from parks, restaurants and swimming pools. They were excluded from cinemas, theatres, exhibitions, beaches and holiday resorts. In 1941 Jews were allowed public transport on their way to work, they then were banned from using public transport during 'Rush Hour' and were only allowed to sit down if no one else was sitting. ...read more.


Even people with Jewish grandparents who had converted to Christianity were defined as Jews. In 1938 when one night of violence across Germany and Austria resulted in 91 Jews being murdered, synagogues being burnt, sacred objects were desecrated, shop windows were smashed and 20,000 Jewish men were rounded up and were sent to concentration camps. These turning points just highlighted that the Jews were bullied and had to right to stand up for their freedom. The Jews were discriminated against in Germany between 1933 when Hitler came to power and became chancellor to 1939 when the start of World War 2 began; Jews had no political rights and couldn't vote. Their standard of living was put at stake as was their personal life, as they couldn't go to school, they couldn't go to the park, their transportation was limited to a point were they couldn't been use the buses. Jews couldn't even choose their own sexual partner. They furthermore had no equal opportunities and were looked down upon because their jobs and education was limited. Being discriminated as they were would make the Jews feel upset, angered and upset and mainly depressed because they had nothing and were made to feel like outsiders because they stood for nothing. ?? ?? ?? ??
