Following their takeover of political power in Germany in 1933, the Nazis gave high priority to anti-Semitic activities. These ranged from boycotts of Jewish stores to brutalization of Jews in concentration camps. A legal basis for these actions was created by the infamous "Nuernberg Laws" and other discriminatory acts. Through the process of "Aryanization," the Nazis took over Jewish properties at a fraction of their actual value. This volume documents the Nazi methods of eliminating Jews from all important intellectual, economic and political positions in Germany.
