first stage definition early 1930s
First Stage: Definition (early 1930s)
  • Purpose of this stage was to establish the Jewish population as “different” from the rest of society
  • Nazis defined Jews based on so-called “scientific” evidence
  • Jews were required to register Jews for identity cards
  • Jewish people were separated from the rest of society by visible symbols-placing the label “Jew” on their clothing, passports and businesses
  • Towards the end of this stage, Jews were required to sew a yellow star on all of their clothing
stage 2 expropriation late 1930s
Stage 2: Expropriation (late 1930s)
  • Purpose of this stage was to demoralize the Jewish population
  • Jewish properties and livelihoods were expropriated (taken away)
  • Law forbade Jews from holding certain jobs, living in certain places, owning businesses or having bank accounts
stage 2
Stage 2
  • Because Jews had already been identified in the first stage, it was easy to enforce the new laws against them
  • Furthermore, Jews had already been established as different than and inferior to the rest of society, so few people objected
stage 3 concentration early 1930s but intensified in 1939
Stage 3: Concentration (early 1930s, but intensified in 1939)
  • Purpose of this stage was not only to further remove the Jewish population from the rest of society (both physically and psychologically), but also to bring the Jews into a concentrated area to make it easier to transport them to the death camps
stage 3
Stage 3
  • German Jews were not allowed to attend school, to travel, to own phones, radios, cameras or pets
  • In Poland in 1939, Jews were forced to move from the countryside into sectioned-off sections of cities called ghettos
stage 31
Stage 3
  • In the ghettos, Jews worked as slave labourers, surviving on minimal supplies of food, water and shelter
  • Huge numbers of the Jews died in the ghettos of disease and malnutrition
stage 4 annihilation from 1941 intensified after 1942
Stage 4: Annihilation (from 1941, intensified after 1942)
  • The sole purpose of this stage was eliminate the entire Jewish population-as well as:
  • anyone who disagreed with the Nazis; members of banned political parties (Communists and Social Democrats); Jehovah’s witnesses and members of many other religious groups; Gypsies; homosexuals; blacks; people with mental and physical disabilities
stage 4
Stage 4
  • It began with the liquidation of the ghettos-transporting anyone who survived the liquidation to labour camps and death camps
  • In parts of Russia, Latvia and Lithuania, Jews ere shot or gassed by mobile killing units and dumped in mass graves
  • In the rest of Europe, Jews were transported to killing centers disguised as labour camps
stage 41
Stage 4
  • Most of the Jews who died in the death camps were gassed in changers disguised as showers—their bodies were burned in crematoriums
  • Before people were killed in the death camps, one last expropriated took place—all personal property was taken from them, including clothing, shoes, eyeglasses, gold fillings in teeth and women’s hair
  • It’s very important to understand that NONE of these stages were inevitable.
  • People could decide whether or not to enforce the laws or comply with them
  • People who resisted, however, were usually imprisoned or executed.
