INTRO: The Nuremburg Laws takes place in the context of the first stage of the Holocaust (1933-1939). This first stage of Nazi Policy towards the Jews is characterized by anti-Jewish legislation and coerced emigration. The goal of the Nazis was to separate the Jews from the rest of the German population and make life so unbearable for the Jews in order to get them to leave the country. The Nuremberg laws helped to racially separate the Jews and define them as something as “other.” These laws were significant for the development of Nazi anti-Jewish policy because they helped to create two separate races by pushing the Jews to the margin of society. FIRST STAGE: During this first stage of anti-Jewish legislation and coerced emigration the Nazis passed hundreds of laws that pushed the Jews to the margin of society. For example, on April 7,1933 the Nazis passed the “Law for the Restoration of the Civil Service.” The idea of this law was to purify the civil service by ridding the bureaucracy of Jews. In this law, the Aryan Paragraph was important because this clause defined who Jews were. While it didn’t explicitly say Jews it defined non-Aryans (Jews) as any person who has one grandparent that is non-Aryan. This is the first racial definition of the Jews, which eventually gets changed by the Nuremberg laws.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
