Deportation to Ghettos
The Nuremberg Laws occurred in 1935. These laws were specifically targeted on the Jews. This was the first act Hitler put into action before resorting to violence on the Jewish people. These laws stripped the Jews of their citizenship and forced them to wear a yellow Star of David patch whenever out in public to signify they were Jewish. They were also only able to shop in Jewish stores.
In the November of 1938, Kristallnacht, or the ¨Night of Broken Glass¨ earned it´s nickname for the terror and violence that occurred that night. This was the second action Hitler took before lethal damage. German soldiers broke Jewish shops which left nothing but broken and shattered glass scattered around the streets. This was the first time the Germans used force against the Jews.
The last attempt to segregate the Jews by Hitler was to deport them into ghettos. Hitler put Jews into ghettos in 1940 hoping that they would either die from starvation or disease. Though a lot of them didn´t make it, this wasn´t good enough for Hitler. This was the last attempt Hitler made before resorting to the mass genocide of the Jewish people, forcing them into concentration camps for them to eventually be executed.
