Intended Learning Outcomes:
See preface material from 'Anne Frank in the World, 1929 - 1945 Teacher Workbook.'
As part of the introduction, ask students the following questions:
Jew's could not own pets or bicycles. They also had a strict curfew to obey. Nazi Youth was the only youth organization allowed. Synagogues were destroyed during Kristallnacht and finally many friendships between Jews and non-Jews were torn apart (often from fear of being associated with Jews). Friendships were also destroyed between those Christians who supported and did not support the Nazi regime. Reference the Nuremberg Law's for more restrictions. The Nuremberg laws were passed on September 15, 1935. Nazi Germany instituted a series of laws designed to make freedom increasingly difficult for the Jews and to restrict their freedom. Excerpts follow:
Law for the Protection of German Blood and Honor (9-15-35)
Moved by the understanding that purity of the German Blood is the essential condition for the continued existence of the German people:
Ask students to list ten things they personally enjoy doing in their daily lives. Have students pick five things they could give up if they had to.
Read the June 26, 1942 excerpt from 'The Diary of Anne Frank.'
Have students make a list of 12-15 specific restrictions on Jews.
In Anne's diary, she quotes Jopie. 'You're scared to do anything, because it may be forbidden.'
Nazi Germany continued to pass laws that discriminated against Jews.
In addition to the above laws, in 1939, Jews were ordered to turn in their radio sets. They were forbidden to leave their homes except for a few hours each day. Jews were forced to deposit all their money in banks, then forbidden to take their money out. The money was confiscated by the Nazis. Telephones were taken away. By 1942, Jews could not have pets, could not attend school of any kind, and had to give up extra clothing.
First Regulation to the Reich Citizenship Law (11-14-35)
Second Regulation for the Implementation of the Law Regarding the Changing of Family Names and Given Names (8-17-38)
There was a separate list of names that Jews were required to use.
