The Nuremberg Law

The Nuremberg Law were laws which excluded the Jews from German life

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 or 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.

These laws make me feel very sad for the Jews because they were limited on a lot of activities. These Jews had a very bad life and if I lived in that time I would've fought for my freedom. I don't think this is fair for the Jews because they just want to believe into what they want to believe and they aren't hurting anyone in doing that. In my opinion I don't think the Jews should live a life like this. They should be able to live their lives like a normal human being.

Propaganda

Propaganda is information that is usually false or biased. Several are very exaggerated and misleading. Propaganda was used to promote something and in my opinion I thought it was VERY rude for people who did this. For example the nazis made one that said how to know if you are talking to a Jew depending on their nose. This I thought was very mean and rude. Most of the ones that I have seen were very biased and very rude and it usually is trying to draw you to one side and to hate the other side. Just like how the nazis made one that made a Jewish man with red eyes and made them look very mean. They were trying to convince you that German people were better and that you should hate Jews.
