Nazi Boycott of Jewish Businesses - Subsequent Events

Subsequent Events

The national boycott operation marked the beginning of a nationwide campaign by the Nazi party against the entire German Jewish population.

A week later, on 7 April 1933, the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service was passed, which restricted employment in the civil service to "Aryans." This meant that Jews could not serve as teachers, professors, judges, or other government positions. Jewish government workers, including teachers in public schools and universities, were fired. Doctors followed closely behind. Jews were barred from claiming any rights as war-veterans (35,000 German Jews died in the first world war). Any Jews who had acquired German citizenship had their citizenship stripped from them. A Jewish quota of 1% was introduced for the number of Jews allowed to attend universities. In the amendment published on April 11 of Part 3 of the law, which stated that all non-Aryans were to be retired from the civil service, clarification was given: "A person is to be considered non-Aryan if he is descended from non-Aryan, and especially from Jewish parents or grandparents. It is sufficient if one parent or grandparent is non-Aryan. This is to be assumed in particular where one parent or grandparent was of the Jewish religion."

"Jewish" books were burnt in elaborate ceremonies and laws, clearly defining who was or was not Jewish, were passed. Jewish-owned businesses were gradually forced to sell out to (non-Jewish) Germans.

After the Invasion of Poland in 1939, the Nazis forced Jews into ghettos and completely banned them from public life. They eventually turned to genocide (The Holocaust).

Famous quotes containing the words events and/or subsequent:

    By many a legendary tale of violence and wrong, as well as by events which have passed before their eyes, these people have been taught to look upon white men with abhorrence.... I can sympathize with the spirit which prompts the Typee warrior to guard all the passes to his valley with the point of his levelled spear, and, standing upon the beach, with his back turned upon his green home, to hold at bay the intruding European.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    And he smiled a kind of sickly smile, and curled up on the floor, And the subsequent proceedings interested him no more.
    Francis Bret Harte (1836–1902)
