Nuremberg Law

Chart used to find Jewish bloodlines

1. Marriage between Jews and subjects of the state of German or related blood are forbidden. Marriages nevertheless concluded are invalid, even if concluded abroad to circumvent the law. Annulment proceedings can be initiated only by the State Prosecutor.

2. Extramarital intercourse between Jews and subjects of the state of German or related blood is forbidden.

3. Jews may not employ in their household female subjects of the state of German o related blood who are under 45 years old.

4. Jews are forbidden to fly the Reich or National flag or to display the Reich colors. They are, on the other hand, permitted to display the Jewish colors. The exercise of this right is protected by the State.

5. Any person who violates the prohibition under I will be punished by a prison sentence with hard labor. A male who violates the prohibition under I will be punished with a prison sentence with or without hard labor. Any person violating the provisions under III or IV will be punished with a prison sentence of up to one year and a fine, or with one or the other of these penalties. The Reich Minister of the Interior, in coordination with the Deputy of the Führer and the Reich Minister of Justice, will issue the Legal and Administrative regulations required to implement and complete the Law. The Law takes effect on the day following promulgations except for III, which goes into force on January 1, 1936. Nuremberg, September 15, 1935 at the Reich Party Congress of Freedom.

I believed that Nuremberg Law was a horrible thing that happened to Jews. The fact that they removed the rights of a specific group of people shouldn't be allowed. It removed for some the ability to express country pride. This was because German Jews couldn't fly the German Flag. The marriage rule takes the right to marry who you want.


Propoganda is the use of misleading or biased information used to promote a point of view or cause. Demonization propoganda is when you portray your target as an evil, murderous person. Emotional appeal propoganda was used to play with emotions to promote the war effort. Name calling propoganda influenced hatred on a person by using negatively connotative words. Propoganda can influence patriotic pride. Propoganda uses mistruths, catchy slogans, and symbols to promote their ideas.
