The nuremberg laws were a anti Jewish act that germans or the nazi party created by the Germans or Nazi party on September 15, 1935, marking the major step in clarifying racial policy and removing jewish influences.

Jews before the holocaust were discriminated against before the holocaust, the holocaust and WW2 were two different events but the holocaust was the result of WW2 and happened in the middle of WW2, Jews were disliked by the Nazi party because of Hitler and convincing the people of Germany that they were evil people, this then led people to believe the Holocaust was alright.

Kristallnacht was a huge impact of the holocaust. Kristallnacht translated into english means Crystal Night, also referred to as the Night of the Broken Glass. this was a program of deadly attacks against jews, these attacks were delivered by SA paramilitary forces and non-jewish civilians.
