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

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.

Nuremberg laws are basically some laws or rules that allow no connection between Jews and Germans. Nuremberg Laws are just like Jim Crow Laws but for Germany and Jewish people instead of American and black people. These laws are awful to have in any country. These laws make such racist or segregating statements that should not be created. The Germans were not allowed to associate with Jews when you should be able to talk or spend time with anyone you want. Nuremberg laws are not letting Jews have freedom and basic rights when everyone of any race or religion should have freedom and basic rights.


Propaganda is an exaggerated statement or advertisement for persuading people for a political purpose. The countries that were in World War II used propaganda against each other. There are many types of propaganda such as demonization, emotional appeal, name calling, patriotic appeals, half truths or lies, catchy slogans, visual symbols, and humor. Demonization makes the enemy like something they are not. Emotional appeals uses the enemy's fear against them. Name calling and patriotic appeals can relate to be a form of propaganda. Half truths or lies can be used as a tool for tricking the countries. Catchy slogans and humor can be used to make it memorable. Visual symbols give people emotions about something. It was used to make the enemy country seem bad during war time to make it seem like whatever the propaganda people were making were right. It tries to convince people to go on a certain side on something, but it could be in a hurtful way.
