No. Not all Germans are Jews and not all Jews are German. But there are German Jews, as well as Jews with many other nationalities.

They required them to leave. Jews were banned from many places and eventually deported.

No, of course not. The Jews were a small minority and many of the German Jews had been trying for decades to be more German than the Germans.

Many German Jews were sent to Auschwitz. Others were slaughtered in Belarus and the killing fields of Latvia.

There were many German-Jews who at the time of the WWII, but there wasn't really a "Good" leader who was all that great to the Jews. The Jews were basically cut to nothing by all the Germans.

The best estimate is about 165,000 (or more) German Jews and 65,000 Austrian Jews. These figures include German and Austrian Jews who fled to other countries that were subsequently invaded by the Nazis, such as the Netherlands and France, and were deported from there.

Many Germans are Jews. Many Jews are German and British, Norwegian, Australian etc. Germans like Jews just fine.

About 100,000 (out of a total Jewish population of about 550,000). 12,000 German Jews were killed in action.

Of course. Not all Germans believed in the Nazi way. In fact, many of the Jews who were put to death were German themselves.

Many historians estimate that between 5.6 and 5.9 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust by Nazi Germany.___Obviously, most of the victims were killed in Poland, not Germany, and the majority was not German Jews. The number of German Jews killed is probably around 165,000.

Yes and No. Jews have origins in the Middle East and, therefore, most Jews do not have ancestors who lived in Germany for many centuries, if at all. Those Jews are certainly not Germans. As for the Jews of Germany, they spent much of the 1700s and 1800s fighting for integration with Christian Germany. By the 1930s, they considered themselves and were considered to be Germans. When the Nazis took control of the German government, the distinction between Germans and Jews became apparent once again. Many Jews from eastern Europe have German-language names (often via Yiddish) and that can be confusing, since it is not necessarily the case that a Jew with a German or Yiddish surname has German Jewish ancestors.

The Jews had no problem about the Germans, until the Nazis persecuted them and made their lives impossible. In fact, the German Jews and many Jews outside Germany were pro-German till 1933.

As of 2018, there are about 200,000 Jews living in Germany, and most speak German. There are also many Jews in Germany who speak Russian or Hebrew as their first languages. Very few German Jews speak fluent Yiddish.

I don't think there is a count for WWI. Remember, WWI was not fought because of persectution of Jews but on the invasion of Belgium.

About 30,000 German Jews were sent to concentration camps in the aftermath of Kristallnacht.
