As Nazi control of Germany continued, the government continued its policies of discrimination and dehumanization. Year after year legislation was passed that severly curtailed the rights of all enemies of the Nazi state, especially the Jewish populations of German held territories. These anti-semitic laws restricted all aspects of both public and private life for Germanys Jews. German law sought to remove the Jewish population from the public, economic, and cultural life of Germany. German Jews were ostracized and marginalized as their civil and human rights were continually wittled away. For more information on anti-Jewish legislation click here, here, and here.
