Because the Nazi had so much power because of Hiltler and the Germans were scared not to hate the Jews.

Actually ...It wasn't that easy. Most of the German Jews were well integrated into German life till the Nazis came to power. Many Germans had dealings with Jews and found there was a huge gap between what they knew and what official Propaganda claimed. The Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses in April 1933 was a fiasco, and even much later the 'Night of the Broken Glass' (November 1938) wasn't particularly popular.

Having said all this, Nazi propaganda often linked the Jews with the defeat of Germany in 1918 and with Bolshevism. This resonated much more than lurid conspiracy theories.


There was a growing resentment against Jewish refugees. Up until 1933 Poland had more antisemitic laws than Germany and the Polish Catholic clergy were encouraging antisemitism from the pulpit, as a result there were many poorer Jews arriving in Germany. With an already high unemployment it was easy for Hitler and the Nazis to say to the working/unemployed people that it was these refugees that were causing the problems.

When people went along with this they did not think that the Nazis would include those Jews who had been born or lived for a long time in Germany. (In fact Hitler himself wanted to deal with the German Jews after he had won the war).
