What I think about the Nuremberg law is that I'm glad it is over, and I don't like how the Germans would label people just on who they are. I also think that the law is very unfair, and I don't believe that this is good under any circumstances. What I really don't like about the laws is that if you were taught your whole life that u were German but u were Jewish to fly with the German flag, now you are not allowed to fly for your country. Also I didn't like how the Germans would know at all tie, if you were a Jew or not. Overall I do not like the idea of the Nuremberg Law because of the harm it did.
