1. Strictly speaking, the Nuremberg Laws of 1935 made German Jews second-class citizens ('members' instead of citizens of the Reich). German Jews who emigrated from Germany in 1935-1941 did so on German passports, stamped with a red J from late 1938 onwards. 2. In December 1941 German Jews were stripped entirely even of second class citizenship. They became stateless, at least in the eyes of countries that recognized this decree. (The Allies, for example, did…
The Nuremberg laws (1935) stripped German Jews of their German citizenship, and prohibited marriage or sexual relations between Jews and other Germans. They also defined who is considered Jewish, based on ancestry. The impact was that these laws legalized anti-Jewish persecutions, and enabled the Holocaust (mass killing of Jews) to start.
German Jews were deprived of their German citizenship in 1935 when the Nuremberg Laws were promulgated. However, until 1941 they still had a kind of residual citizenship as 'members of Germany', and those who managed to leave Germany did so on German passports. From 1938 on, these were stamped with a large J.
The German Government began its involvement with the Nuremberg Laws. The first of which was the "Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honor" which forbade intermarriage between Germans and Jews, and the second called the "Reich Citizenship Law" which stripped all Jews of citizenship. This was a formal decleration in which the German government deprived individuals of their rights and set them apart as a second class or nationals. The rest of…
Anti-Semetism has existed for centuries, but in many countries they were accepted or at least tolerated.

It led to their isolation and extermination.
What set of laws passed by Germany in 1935 stripped German Jews of their citizenship and personal liberties?
The Nuremberg laws were proposed by Adolf Hitler to the German Reichstag (Legislature) at a special session held in Nuremberg on September 15, 1935. They were quickly passed and became law.

They were denied due process of law. They were not even charged with anything. Their property was seized. They were denied the opportunity to earn a living. They were forced to work for the German government - without pay and on grossly insufficient food. They were denied medical treatment. They were starved.

In 1935, the Nazis passed the Nuremberg Laws, which deprived Jews of German citizenship and placed severe restrictions on them. Jewish people were prohibited from marrying non-Jews, attending or teaching at German schools or universities, holding government jobs, practicing law or medicine, or publishing books.
Between 1812 and about 1870 all the German states admitted their Jewish inhabitants to citizenship. In 1871, when Germany became a nation-state, the Jewish citizens of the various German states also became German citizens. From 1933 on they were subject to discrimatory legislation. The Nuremberg Laws of 1935 reduced them to non-citizens ... After the defeat of Nazism they were again admitted to German citizenship.

Official reasons given included: * Only 'genuine Germans' should work for the German government at any level, and the Nazis claimed that Jews could not be Germans (regardless of citizenship, language, etc). (In fact, collectively, German Jews had a reputation for leaning over backwards to be 'more German than the Germans'). * The claim that Jews are subversives, Communists and so on.
There are mixed feelings in the Jewish community as to whether Germany should be continually hated for the perpetration of the Holocaust. Some say that the German people's collective guilt for the event shows their remorse and that they should be forgiven. Some say that only the generation that lived through World War II is guilty of ever-lasting shame and revulsion and that their children cannot carry their parents' guilt. Some say that Germany can…
What was the name of the laws that stripped Jews of their rights and forbid non-Jews from marrying Jews?
The process of depriving German Jews of their rights started in April 1933. A hailstorm of anti-Jewish decrees followed, in all about 430 between 1933 and 1943.
