The Nuremberg Laws

These are what planes looked like in WWII. Soldiers used them as weapons , not as ways to get places.

Great picture of men shooting a machine gun. It takes more the one man to load a gun like that.

During WWII, everyone knew there were rules Jews had to follow, but in 1935, Adolf Hitler brought the rules to the next level. Hitler felt these laws were necessary because citizens were questioning whether they were Jewish or not, so Hitler and members of the Reich citizenship put their ideology on a chart to make the laws easier to understand. On September 15th, 1935, Hitler and the Reich announced the laws at the Nuremberg annual party. The official rules were called the Nuremberg Laws, getting their name from the party. There were only two main laws, the Reich Citizenship Law (RCL) and the Law of the Protection of German Blood and German Honor (PGBGH).The first law, RCL, explained what a Reich citizenship was and whether a person was worthy to be in it or not. Moreover, the RCL stated the requirements to be in the citizenship. A person is considered a Jew if they had three or four Jewish grandparents. If a person had less than 3 of 4 grandparents, they would be considered a Mischlinge (half-breed). A person who was half German and half Jewish, would be considered a Jew. The second law, PGBGH, explained “German Jews were excluded from the Reich Citizenship and prohibited from marrying or having sexual relations with persons of ‘German or related blood’” (“The Nuremberg Race Laws”). Germans over 45 years old cannot work in a Jew household. Additionally, Jewish people prohibited to fly the Reich Citizenship flag and wear the Reich colors, but the Germans are allowed to wear Jewish colors. Of course, if these two laws were broken, Jewish people were put in severe punishment. These laws may seem very strict, but at the time, they were not so terrible.
