Nuremberg laws

Nuremberg Laws

By: Wes, Gloria, and James


What they were

What They Were

  • The Nuremberg Laws of 1935 were antisemitic laws in Nazi Germany which were introduced at the annual Nazi Party rally in Nuremberg.

  • The laws officially classified people as Jewish if 3 or 4 of their grandparents were Jewish. It also classified those with 1 or 2 Jewish grandparents as a “Mischling” or crossbreed.


Introduction of the laws

Introduction of the Laws

  • On September 15th, 1935 two measures were introduced. The first one The Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honourprohibited marriage and intercourse between “Jews” and “Germans.”

  • The second law The Reich Citizenship Law stripped persons not of German blood of their citizenship and introduced a distinction between “Reich Citizens” and “Nationals.”


Aftermath

Aftermath

  • Although the Nuremberg Laws were not the first antisemitic laws passed in Germany, they were the first to draw a clear distinction of who was a Jew and who was a German.

  • It is also ironic to note that even though Nuremberg was used to pass these discriminatory laws, it was also where the Nazi leaders went on trial, many of them being hanged.
