Nazi persecution of the Jewsa. In Germany Jews were persecuted with growing intensity from April 1933 onwards. b. 1933: Most Jews were banned from working in the public sector…, from higher education and from working in the media. c. 1935: The Nuremberg Laws in effect deprived German Jews of citizenship. d. 1938: Jews banned from the professions; organized, large scale violence against Jews on 9-10 November (and longer in many parts of Germany) - the Night of Broken Glass (Kristallnacht). 30,000 Jews sent to concentration camps and 2,000 of these were dead within six weeks. e. 1939: Jews forbidden to own businesses. Jews forced to live in designated apartment blocks marked with a huge J over all entrances. When World War 2 broke out in September, further restrictions were imposed on Jews. For example, they were not allowed to own pets or radios and had to stay at home from 9pm till 6am. --- f. September 1939 onwards: Invasion of Poland and later other European countries greatly increased the number of Jews under German control. Ghettos (sealed off Jewish districts) established in Poland. g. 1941: Following the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union (June), mobile killing units (SD-Einsatgruppen) went into action behind German lines, slaughtering the Jews. September - Jews forbidden to leave Germany and German controlled territory and ordered to wear a yellow Star of David. October - first deportations from Berlin and other German cities to 'the East'. In practice, this meant that they were taken to 'killing fields' in Latvia and Belarus. Some were dumped in ghettos in Poland. h. 1941: 8 December - routine mass gassings start at Chelmno. Start of the 'Final Solution' i. 1942: Wannsee Conference (20 January) establishes full co-ordination between the various branches of the German state. Further extermination camps come into operation: Auschwitz II (Birkenau), Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka, with Majdanek as a kind of 'back-up' for use when killing facilities at the other camps had insufficient capacity! Holocaust lasts till 1945. In April 1933, Hitler proclaimed a one-day boycott against Jewish shops; a few days later most Jews were dismissed from employment in the public sector; three weeks later most Jewish students were expelled from universities and colleges, and Jewish children began experiencing restrictions in public schools. Then Jews were banned from the media. It was the beginning of a hailstorm of anti-Jewish decrees (about 430 (!) in ten years). By 1935, the Nuremberg Laws deprived German Jews of citizenship. By 1936, Jews were prohibited from participation in parliamentary elections and signs reading "Jews Not Welcome" appeared in many German cities. (Incidentally, these signs were taken down in the late summer in preparation for the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin), then in 1938 there was a night of rampage where Nazi thugs called brownshirts smashed Jewish businesses and burned synagogues. That terrible night was called "Kristallnacht" or "Night of the Broken Glass". It was the beginning of the end for the Jews. Jews were banned from most occupations and forbidden to own businesses. They had to sell any businesses that they owned (at laughably low prices). They were denied the means of earning a living ... After that came deportations and the infamous ghettos. Jewish houses were given to German families and their original Jewish owners were herded into these places caged in by armed guards and slowly starved to death. Obviously a more effective and less noticeable way had to be found to get rid of the Jews so the many work camps that had sprung up during the 1930s were converted to death camps, Jews were then transported to these places and the more able bodied used as slave labour, but the real use of the concentration camps was extermination, Jews were shot and gassed in their thousands and then burned in massive crematoriums, horrific experiments were also carried out like the breaking and resetting of bones, altitude experiments and testing the effects of freezing a person and then immersing them into hot water, this mass extermination of the Jews was not confined to Germany, all over nazi occupied Europe - but especially in the main death camps in occupied Poland - this practice was taking place the numbers of these death camps rose and by the end of the War an estimated 6 million Jews had been killed. Mass murder and genocide The Nazis deemed the Jewish people sub-human (among many others, such as the Poles, homosexuals, etc) They wanted to get rid of them, they sent them off to extermination (death) camps. They were killed by being sent into gas chambers for the most part, others were worked to death or shot. A few were used for medical 'experiments'.
Nazis (naht-seez, nat-seez) A German political party of the twentieth century, led by Adolf Hitler. The Nazis controlled Germany from the early 1930s until the end o…f World War II. The party's full name in English is National Socialist German Workers' party; Nazi is short for its German name. Despite the word socialist in its name, it was a fascist party, requiring from its members supreme devotion to the German government - the Third Reich (see fascism and socialism). The Nazis rose to power by promising the people that Germany, which had been humiliated after World War I, would become powerful again. The Nazis opposed communism and free intellectual inquiry. Desiring to form a master race that would rule the world, they fought the influence in Germany of peoples not of "pure" descent. Their power was particularly directed at controlling Jews in Germany and in the countries that Germany conquered in war. After depriving Jews of their property and confining them in concentration camps, the Nazis employed the Final Solution of killing them in large numbers; an estimated six million Jews lost their lives (see Holocaust). Also marked for extermination were the mentally and physically handicapped and "enemies of the Reich" such as Slavs, communists, Gypsies, homosexuals, Christians who resisted the government, and defenders of intellectual freedom. The Nazis fought World War II to spread their principles worldwide but were defeated. Twenty-two of their leaders were convicted of war crimes at the Nuremberg trials. A great number of symbols, images, and names are associated with the reign of the Nazis, including the swastika emblem; the stiff-armed salute; the greeting "heil Hitler"; the goose-step march; mass political rallies; concentration camps, such as Auschwitz and Dachau; and Hitler's aides Adolf Eichmann, Joseph Goebbels, Hermann Goering, and Heinrich Himmler. Above retrieved from Answers.com http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZtheleato In 1939 Hitler Succeeded by putting Poland under the swastika, and thus precipitated WW2. With war came many changes, the production of Nazi coins being just one. WW2 coincided with German mints ceasing production altogether of the silver Reichsmark Nazi coins. Further, all Reichspfennig Nazi coins were now produced in cheaper zinc. Production of silver reichsmark Nazi coins may have ceased with the start of WW2 but the swastika clearly remained, emblazoned on millions of zinc reichspfennig coins Nazi coins. More Detailed History: The Third Reich started issuing clearly identifiable "Nazi" coins (ie with swastika) from 1936. Although the Nazi's were in power from 1933, the designs for the smaller denomination coinage were simply a continuation of "Weimarer Republik" designs. It was only from 1936 that the smaller denomination Third Reich coins had the Nazi Reichsadler and Hakenkreuz (swastika) incorporated into the coin's design. Prior to 1940, small denomination coins were minted from "superior" metals ie copper (1 & 2 Reichspfennig), Copper/Aluminum Alloy (5 & 10 Reichspfennig), and depending upon the year either Nickel or Aluminum (50 Reichspfennig). Things radically changed after the 1939 and the start of the Second World War however. After 1939, no more large denomination silver coins were minted (2 and 5 Reichsmark). Smaller denomination coins continued to be minted but no longer using the "superior" metals. From 1940, almost all the small denomination coins were minted from an zinc base metal. The exception to this were 50 Reichspfennig coins which were instead minted from an aluminum base metal. The 3rd Reich had a number of mints (coin factories). Each mint location had its own identifiable letter. It is therefore possible to identify exactly which mint produced what coin by noting the mint mark (letter) on the coin. Not all mints were authorized to produce coins every year. The mints were also only authorized to produced a set number of coins with some mints allocated a greater production than others. Some of the coins with particular mint marks are therefore scarcer than others. On the smaller denomination Reichspfennig coins, the mint mark is found on the bottom center of the coin. A = Berlin B = Wien (Vienna) D = München (Munich) E = Muldenhütten (Dresden) F = Stuttgart G = Karlsruhe J = Hamburg I dont know ask someone else
Before the Nazis, the swastika used to be used for thousands of yeas to symbolize luck, sun, power, strength, and good luck. However, when Hitler came to power, it was given …a whole new meaning in the eyes of the world. It now stood for violence, hate, antisemitism, death, and murder. In most recent years it has been debated over the real meaning if the swastika, for there are still many religions and cultures using the symbol with its old meaning. However, people are still arguing over this, and it has still not been determined.
SD stood for Sicherheitsdienst which means security service. In practice, it was a part of Himmler's vast terror apparatus.
Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers Party)

The Grandmother disagrees with the Nazis and stands up for her beliefs by expressing her views on the Nazi's in a very negative way, by saying that they are horrible people an…d very cruel, she feels so strongly about this that she is even angry at her own son for being one of them. She expresses her opinion freely no matter how much trouble she could get in from the Fury.
SS stands for "Schutzstaffel" (English Translation: "Protective Echelon")
National Socialism: the Nazis were extreme nationalists who were loyalty to their country. They wanted racial purity, equality and state control of the economy…. Hitler wanted to nationalize large industries and businesses. Although his party was named the National Socialist German Worker's Party (NSDAP), they were not quite socialist. They named themselves this way in order to attract the middle class' attention, without having to make any policy to support this. However, they wanted to provide provisions for old age pensioners. The abolition of the Treaty of Versailles: Hitler had been a solider during the First World War. When the Weimar politicians agreed to sign the Treaty of Versailles, he was angry with them and with it. He thought that this treaty would ruin Germany. Almost every German was appalled when the treaty was signed. Hitler promised people that when he came to power he would abolish the terms of the Treaty. Racism: Only 'true' Germans to be allowed to live in Germany. Hitler believed that the Aryans (white Europeans) were the leader race. Therefore, he considered all the other races inferior. He particularly disliked Jews
A man named Adolf Hitler led a party named the Nazis. They were all members of the National Socialist Party in Germany. This party was established in Munich in 1919 and in… 1921 it was taken over by Adolf Hitler. It was from the outset dominated by hatred and 'anti' attitudes: it was antisemtic, anti-Marxist and anti-democratic. Hitler rose to leadership of the party, and then became the Führer of all Germany on January 30,1933. His dictatorship lasted 12 years until the end of WWII. He had a specific idea of the 'perfect' person. He had a desire to create a "perfect" Germany. Millions of people who did not fit Hitler's idea of perfect were arrested and sent to work-camps or death-camps. Millions of these people were Jewish. Hitler's Nazi leaders built camps specifically to exterminate these people in very cruel and inhumane ways. He committed suicide with his wife, Eva Braun, on April 30, 1945 when it was apparent that Allied forces would win the war against Nazi Germany. The Nazi party peaked in strength during WWII. Not all Germans were Nazis and many Germans lived in fear of Hitler and the Nazi Party. But many Germans supported Hitler, for ending the depression. The Nazi Party, or in English the National Socialist German Workers' Party, was the ruling fascist party that controlled Germany politically and militarily from 1933 to 1945. This was the "vehicle" that brought Adolf Hitler to power as the Reichskancellor, or Reich Chancellor. The Nazis were just Party members basically and most joined due to the political advantages as well as "social networking" available to Party members. Sad sitution, really. The NAZI (An abbreviation for Nationalsozialism, "National socialism) was a political party in Germany from the early 1919 to the end of WW2 (and still refusing to go away even today in isolated pockets around the world). They took power by means of deception, coercion and blackmail and caused Europe to go to war as they invaded country after country and were led (primarily) by Adolph Hitler. Their general philosophy was that the Germans (specifically, the "Aryans", those with blue eyes and blonde hair) were evolutionarily superior and so took it upon themselves to attempt to systematically wipe everyone else off the face of the earth. By mixing sloganism (and a rather effective propoganda machine in general), bits of occult philosophy, and a general rejection of those viewed as having brought about Germany's downfall at the end of World War 1 (including communists, Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, Christians/Catholics, the mentally and physically handicapped and others), they were able to mobilize vast numbers of the population very quickly and take most of Europe by surprise.
Answer The term Nazi is derived from the first two syllables of the official name of the German Nazi Party, the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei.
Answer: The word isn't actually an acronym but is based on syllables, so it's not a matter of each letter standing for something. (The recent habit of spelling the word… all in capitals is misleading and very ignorant). The word Nazi is based on the first two syllables of the German word Nationalialsozialist. (In German 'ti' as in 'National' is pronounced /tsi/). The term 'Nazi' was in widespread use in Germany as a mildly derogatory term in the early 1930s. It was inspired by the use of 'Sozi' for socialists. (Compare with 'Commie' for 'Communist'). Rival gangs of young kids in German school playgrounds in the early 1930s called themselves 'Nazis' or 'Sozis' and fought one another. Note:In German the word is a noun only, and cannot be used as an adjective.In some dialects in southern Bavaria the word predates the rise of any National Socialist party or ideology, and means a (comically) clumsy man, buffoon.Again in some parts of southern Bavaria, Nazi had been in use for a long time as a nickname for Ignaz. Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, or National Socialist German Workers' Party in English.
