The Hitler state

The Nazis gained enormous popularity due to the terrible conditions in Germany, effective propaganda, and their promises to solve all Germany's problems. however, they were never supported by a majority of German voters between 1930 and 1933.

Jews in Nazi Germany

During the time when Germany was seemingly recovering under Stresemann, what Hitler said about the Jews remained nonsense listened to by only the few. During the impact of the Great Depression, thought, when people became unemployed and all looked helpless, Hitler's search for a scapegoat proved a lot more fruitful. after January 1933k, the Jews became the Untermenschen-the sub-humans. in 1935, the Nuremberg laws were passed and the Jews lost their right to be German citizens and marriage between Jews and non Jews was forbidden.

The Final Solution

The Holocaust was underway by mid 1941 when the SS began to systematically kill Jews by means of a series of mass shootings in the Soviet Union. By later 1941, Hitler had decided that mass extermination of all the Jews in Nazi-controlled territory would be the Final solution to the Jewish problem. Existing concentration and labour camps were already being converted into extermination camps
