The Secret Annex

Nuremberg Laws

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.

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

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

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.

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 F├╝hrer 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.

My opinion on the Nuremberg Law are that it is horrific. It leads into their personal lives too. They only let Jewish people be with Jewish people. It is forbidden to marry or have kids outside of them. The Germans wanted to keep their blood pure and this caused many massacres. They shouldn't have seperated people from loving whoever they wanted to.


Propaganda is a biased point of view that is used to publize one sides views. Propaganda was used in World War 2 between Germany, USA, and other countries. Propaganda is used in posters, advertisements, tv shows, and so many others. Propaganda was one of the reasons that World War 2 was started. The Germans had posters up about Jews and the people that were against them. In the USA during this time, they also had the same things, but they were targeting the Germans and the places that were for killing the Jews. These posters were mostly insulting and offensive to each side.

These were the different types of propaganda in World War 2. Some were from the USA and some were from Germany.
