Boycotting Jewish Businesses

Written by: George Chittenden : 31 Jul 2019

This photo was taken On April 1st, 1933, when the Nazis carried out their very first nationwide, planned action against Jewish people, a boycott of Jewish businesses. In 1933, around half a million Jews lived in Germany, which was less than one percent of the total population. Most were proud to be German, and over one-hundred thousand had served their country during the Great War. However, when the Nazis came to power, the lives of German Jews changed drastically. Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi minister of propaganda, was in favour boycotting Jewish-owned shops.

Why you may ask, well it was an act of revenge against German Jews who had criticized the Nazi regime. So, on the day of the boycott Storm Troopers stood in front of Jewish-owned shops intimidating people. It was the start of a long campaign that only ever got worse for Jewish people both in Germany and across Europe. A week after the boycott the government passed a law which restricted employment in the civil service to Aryans only. Sadly, Jewish government workers, including teachers in public schools and universities were fired.
