Most of the immigrant Jews in the early 1930s were from Poland.

Jews began leaving Nazi Germany soon after the Nazis came to power in 1933 - three years before the 1936 Olympics.

Antisemitism in Germany before the Nazis came to power (1933) was no greater than in most other European countries. The German Jews did not feel particularly threatened, and Jewish organizations did not see Germany as a risky country for Jews to live in.

Jews came many centuries before Catholics.

560,000 Jews Lived in Germany prior to the Hitler coming to power

The Jews faced persecution, as well as difficulty in leaving Germany when the Nazis came to power.

The first Jews came to Germany 1150 years ago, at the very latest. Possibly earlier. It is known that Charlemagne brought (or invited) Jews to Germany; and we have the names of Rabbis in Germany 1100 years ago.

When Hitler came to power in Germany, he began many restrictions on German Jews. He used his propaganda machine to humiliate Jews and used his storm troopers to kill and harass German Jews. Later of course, he began a genocide policy to eradicate all Jews in Germany and in countries the Nazi's occupied in WW 2.

In January 1933, when Hitler came to power, Germany had: * About 495,000 Jews in the religious sense * About a further 250,000-300,000 people with one or more Jewish grandparents

Berlin, which had an estimated 140,000 Jews at the time. That was roughly a quarter of all German Jews.

the Jews came from Poland, austrial and Germany. they were taken and gased or killed.

It depends on the country. In Germany and other Western and Central European countrie the vast majority of Jews were Reform Jews and were not conspicuously different from non-Jews. Thee is no simple test for acculturation, but the general consensus is that they fitted in.

In Germany in the period before the Nazis came to power, antisemitism in Germany was not much more marked than in many other parts of Europe. Certainly, the German Jews did not feel particularly threatened and were caught completely off-guard when Hitler came to power. Practically, none of them had made any arrangements to leave the country. In the period c. 1918-1933 the countries associated with virulent antisemitism were: Poland, Hungary, Romania and France - not Germany.

When the Nazis came to power in 1933 there were about 500,000 Jews in Germany in the sense of members of a Jewish congregation. There were also about a further 300,000 people who were part Jewish. By 1939 the overall number had fallen to about 550,000 as a result of emigration.

False. Jews made up about 1.4% of the population of Germany before Hitler came to power. (This figure includes everyone with one Jewish grandparent).

The first planned attack against the Jews in Germany came just weeks after the Nazis were elected in 1933, with the boycotting of Jewish businesses.

a lot of them escaped to Poland, ironic as a lot of them had escaped from Poland to Germany only years before.

The German Jews had been overwhelmingly adherents of Reform Judaism since about 1850. In addition, there were some Polish Jews in Germany and many of them were Orthodox.

They were pretty well off. Germany was one of the most liberal and safe places for Jews in Europe from the 1700s up until the Holocaust.

The treatment of the German Jews was known in Germany and abroad.

The Nazis only came to power in 1933, so before that they were not in a position to pass legislation or issue decrees against Jews.

Before WWII the world was growing increasingly antisemitic and in the last few years before the war, with the rise of the Nazis Germany became the worst place for Jews to live. Germany passed steadily harsher legislation against Jews and the rest of the world did not object, there soon were very few places that would accept Jews fleeing oppression in Germany.
