Don't have an account? The chapter explores the public life and experiences of Jews from to The Nazi government mobilized the considerable powers of the state to ostracize the Jews and lower their social, economic, and legal status within the state. Examples include the boycott of Jewish goods and businesses, the confiscation of their wealth, and the passing of the Nuremberg Laws. The chapter opens with an account of the violent consolidation of the German state under the newly-elected Nazi regime, which did not single out the Jews initially and focused on obliterating the communist threat in general. Through the use of propaganda and the redefinition of racial status as Aryan, the Jews increasingly felt the ostracism in their daily lives which affected their sources of food, shelter, and entertainment and forever damaged their relationships with other Germans.
Don't have an account? The author concludes with a discussion on the social death of the Jews and the German indifference to their suffering. The Jewish response throughout the Holocaust is related along with accounts of the knowledge of German perpetuators and bystanders. It is reiterated that the Jews were lulled into a false sense of security in the initial stages of Nazi persecution as the measures were implemented by Germans in stages and with periods of inactivity in between. Accounts from German historians focus on the war-time sufferings that the German populace experienced and their ignorance of the horrific crimes being perpetuated upon the Jews. The author, through the accounts of Jewish victims and survivors, presents a differing view since the persecution of the Jews started much earlier than the war.

Unlimited access to the largest selection of audiobooks and textbooks aligned to school curriculum on the only app specifically designed for struggling readers, like students dealing with dyslexia, blindness or other learning differences. Between Dignity and Despair draws on the extraordinary memoirs, diaries, interviews, and letters of Jewish women and men to give us the first intimate portrait of Jewish life in Nazi Germany. Kaplan tells the story of Jews in Germany not from the hindsight of the Holocaust, nor by focusing on the persecutors, but from the bewildered and ambiguous perspective of Jews trying to navigate their daily lives in a world that was becoming more and more insane. Answering the charge that Jews should have left earlier, Kaplan shows that far from seeming inevitable, the Holocaust was impossible to foresee precisely because Nazi repression occurred in irregular and unpredictable steps until the massive violence of Novemer Then the flow of emigration turned into a torrent, only to be stopped by the war. By that time Jews had been evicted from their homes, robbed of their possessions and their livelihoods, shunned by their former friends, persecuted by their neighbors, and driven into forced labor.

She pays particular attention to women, forced, she argues, to play roles "as breadwinners, family protectors, and defenders of business or practices" once reserved to men and, partly because they were less engaged in German public and economic life, more willing than men to envisage emigration as the only means of survival. With the help of memoirs and interviews, and a sensitivity both subtle and profound, she examines the effects of the Nazi regime's increasingly sadistic anti-Semitic measures on Jews' public and private lives, on children at school and at home, the fate of the Mischlinge, the worsening of the Jews' condition after the pogrom of November , the era of forced labor and deportation during World War II, and the situation of those Jews who succeeded in living underground or who actively resisted. Two conclusions stand out. One is about the relentlessly imaginative and varied list of deprivations, humiliations, petty cruelties, and legal torments inflicted by the Nazis on Germany's Jewish minority -- , people accused of poisoning the Aryan majority. These measures were taken in a discontinuous way -- lulls contributed to Jews' ambivalence about leaving -- but their accumulated weight caused Jews' suicide rates to jump.
