Social Exclusion and Economic Persecution of the Jews

The anti-Jewish measures instituted by the regime became gradually worse between 1933 and 1937, as did the Jews' social isolation. A flux of laws and regulations, culminated in the denaturalization of the Jews under the racially discriminating Nuremberg Laws. These laws imposed various restrictions on the lives of the Jews in Germany and banished them from social and economic life. The expulsion of the Jews from society was not only expressed in laws and regulations; many Germans were inclined to have nothing to do with Jews, whether due to Antisemitism or in return for benefits, such as economic, social and political gains, which they obtained by the dispossession of the Jews.
