After the beginning of 1938 the situation deteriorated rapidly. The main reason why the Nazis treatment of the Jews changed was that the Nazi leaders had become much more confident and less concerned about the rest of the world thought about their anti Jewish policies.

The Jews were told that they were to be resettled, some even had to buy their own train tickets they traveled to the concentration camps in goods coaches without food or toilets. ...read more.
