As discrimination against Jews increased, German law required a legal definition of a Jew and an Aryan.
Promulgated at the annual Nazi Party rally in Nürnberg on September 15, , the Nürnberg Laws —the Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour and the Law of the Reich Citizen—became the centrepiece of anti-Jewish legislation and a precedent for defining and categorizing Jews in all German-controlled lands.
Jews were reduced to subjects of the state. That task was left to the bureaucracy. Thus, the definition of a Jew was primarily based not on the identity an individual affirmed or the religion he or she practiced but on his or her ancestry.
Categorization was the first stage of destruction. For those Jews who felt themselves fully German and who had patriotically fought in World War I , the Nazification of German society was especially painful.
Zionist activity intensified. Religious philosopher Martin Buber led an effort at Jewish adult education , preparing the community for the long journey ahead.
By the late s there was a desperate search for countries of refuge. Those who could obtain visas and qualify under stringent quotas emigrated to the United States.
Many went to Palestine , where the small Jewish community was willing to receive refugees. Still others sought refuge in neighbouring European countries.
Most countries, however, were unwilling to receive large numbers of refugees. Responding to domestic pressures to act on behalf of Jewish refugees, U.
Franklin D. In his invitation to government leaders, Roosevelt specified that they would not have to change laws or spend government funds; only philanthropic funds would be used for resettlement.
Britain was assured that Palestine would not be on the agenda. The result was that little was attempted and less accomplished.

The two exceptions were the daughter Anna and the son Rudy played by Joseph Bottoms. This may not be entirely their fault - their parts are so underwritten - conventional.
The fantastic aspect of this series is its scope - you really do have a grounding in the Holocaust that would serve you well reading any history, seeing any movies set in this time.
The downside is that as fine as the acting is, the series is split among the stories of six to eight people over the course of a decade - which inevitably limits how moved the audience is by the story of each.
Thus, in contrast to say, Schindler's List or The Pianist, we are not living and breathing with one person and what happens to him - we do not know these characters THAT well.
I would also criticize the series as creating such one-sidedly virtuous characters in the victims. We are interested in a character in drama only to the extent that the person seems real and we can therefore wholly identify with this real breathing person.
Although we do have some feeling of how James Woods' character is different from say, Joseph Bottoms', it isn't sufficient to move the drama to the greatest heights.
Actors don't come better than those in this series - so I think it's really due to the nature of the series - the need to get it all in and move around all the different experiences.
This better serves our education, but somewhat reduces the sense of having suffered with each individual. This was a great and enormously expensive production.
It is very worthwhile renting - and should be shown to everyone above say, the age of 12 I'd say that a younger age is too susceptible to the horror.
NBC is to be commended highly for having developed it. It's tremendous. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.
