Nuremberg Laws
BY emily peach

The first six years of Hitler's dictatorship, he passed a series of laws dehumanizing Jewish civilians and taking their rights away.  They were passed from 1933-1939 and they are referred to today as the anti- Jewish legislation. Some examples of the laws passed are as follows:

April 7, 1933- Law for the reestablishment of the Professional Civil Service removes Jews from government services.

April 25, 1933- Law against Overcrowding in Schools and Universities limits the number of Jewish students in public schools.

May 21, 1935- Army law expels Jewish officers from the army.

October 15, 1936- Reich Ministry of Education bans all Jewish public school teachers.

This picture shows the national leaders at the time when the Nuremberg Laws were being passed in court.  The judges in the picture, from left to right, are Harold ("Tom") L. Sebring, Walter B. Beals, Johnston T. Crawford, Victor Swearingen, who served as the alternate judge.

The image above shows a German newspaper, Der Stürmer, glorifying anti-Semitism within Germany. Under a sign saying "With the Stürmer against the Jews" is a page display beneath the Nazi slogan "The Jews are our misfortune."

This video is a good introduction explaining the history of the laws and their history, origin, and meanings.  It helped me to understand all aspects of what was going on during this time and what each law enforced among Jews.
