Transcript of Nazi Process
Final Solution August 1938: Germans authorities announced that starting on January 1, Jewish men and women who had "non-Jewish" names had to add "Israel" (men) and "Sara" (women) to their name.
They were obligated to carry around ID cards stamped with a large "J."
This would make them easily distinguishable to German authorities and police. Kristallnacht "Night of the Broken Glass"
October 1933: 17,000 Jews with a Polish Citizenship were deported from Germany. Yet, they have lived in Germany for several years.
The Polish Government refused to accept these people, so they were placed in "relocation camps."
This was the fate of 17 year old Polish Jew, Hershel Grynszpan's family.
Grynszpan was angry at the German government for what they did. He killed German diplomat, Ernst Von Rath.
Joseph Goebbels, Chief of propaganda, launched an attack on Jews on November 6, 1938.
250 synagogs were burned and 7,000 Jewish businesses destroyed. The Nazis came to power in 1933
Antisemitism (discrimination/hostility towards Jews) increased
April 1933: Nation-wide boycott of Jewish businesses
September 1935: Nuremberg Laws installed
Other groups targeted by the Nazis included democrats, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, Gypsies, handicapped/mentally impaired, along with other undesirables. Nuremberg Laws:
1. Marriages between Jews and subjects of the state of German or related blood are forbidden. Marriages nevertheless concluded are invalid, even if concluded abroad to circumvent this law.
Jews may not employ in their households female subjects of the state of German or related blood who are under 45 years old.
1. Any person who violates the prohibition under Article 1 will be punished with a prison sentence.
2. A male who violates the prohibition under Article 2 will be punished with a jail term or a prison sentence." Final Solution Face-to-face killing became psychologically overwhelming
Nazi's thought about sending Jews to Madagascar, but the sea became hostile as the war erupted and supplies were running low.
January 20, 1942: Wannsee Conference
The Endlosung or the "Final Solution" was discussed. Auschwitz Identification 13-17405 18372 01293 Herman Goering Himmler's Message to Nazi Officials
"...From December 31, 1942, no persons of Jewish origin may remain within the Government-General, unless they are in collection camps in Warsaw, Cracow, Czestochowa, Radom, and Lublin. All other work on which Jewish labor is employed must be finished by that date, or, in the event that this is not possible, it must be transferred to one of the collection camps.
These measures are required with a view to the necessary ethnic division of races and peoples for the New Order in Europe, and also in the interests of the security and cleanliness of the German Reich and its sphere of interest. Every breach of this regulation spells a danger to quiet and order in the entire German sphere of interest, a point of application for the resistance movement and a source of moral and physical pestilence.
For all these reasons a total cleansing is necessary and therefore to be carried out..."
