The Jewish Response to National Socialism
In the first months after they came to power in 1933, the Nazis imposed anti-Jewish measures which gravely threatened the social and economic livelihood of German Jews.
The initial goal of the increasing stigmatization and exclusion was to drive them away; from 1941 the aim was physical annihilation.
This tour looks at the limited opportunities for direct action and the desperate struggle to sustain daily life. Personal documents and certificates illustrate the attempts Jews made to survive in Germany, to put up resistance, and to retain their dignity. Questions concerned with the when and where of emigration or the search for a suitable hiding place demonstrate individual examples of self-assertion in an outlawed and persecuted minority.
