They were no longer protected by German law, could no longer hold public office, and now were no longer protected by the German criminal code as they were not Germans. German Community.
Citizenship laws Cook 12 approved of these laws. Again their imagery can be used to show the approval; in Image two, released in November , a woman is saved from the Jewish beast, struck down by the new laws depicted as a sword. This was how the Nazi portrayed the Jewish menace, and how the Nuremburg laws were seen by the public. Not as being unjust or unfair to the Jews but as necessary for the protective of the German community from monstrous Jews.
In the caption she speaks of how beautiful Germany is now that there are no Jews in sight. My Germany, how beautiful you are when there is no Jew to be seen far and wide. Cook 13 through removing the Jew from the community in the legal sense; the ideal community for Germans to aspire to. This lead to the massive genocide of Jew in the Holocaust. Like-minded propaganda campaigns did similar dehumanizing to Poles, Russians, Communists, Slavs, and Homosexuals who also died in massive numbers in the Holocaust.
One of the biggest parts of this would be the rebuilding of the military of Germany to prepare for the eventual war that would start just six years after they took power. To 29 Welch, The Third Reich, Cook 14 make this a viable option Hitler needed to mobilize the entire country to the goal of a strong military.
These would come from the para-military forces like the SA that numbered over two million at this point. Before this was possible these troops would have to be 31 J. Noakes, and G. Foreign Policy, War and Racial Extermination: A Documentary Reader. Cook 15 conditioned before being able to commit the atrocities that would occurred regularly on the eastern front. This conditioning was started by the propaganda which was shaping who would be the enemies of the new German military. This was again done by playing off historical stereotypes.
This time stereotypes of both Germans and outsiders. By late the propaganda was using the imagery of the Jew and connecting it to future enemies such as the Soviets. This image in particular shows the Jew as an evil task master pushing his German workers for little pay.
Such images were used to create in the German mind, one group—to be communist was to be Jewish. Once the connection was made it was continually reinforced with additional images that slowly added different dimensions to these new Soviet Jew. The Jew laughs at their drudgery and they sweat blood for Jew wages.
Cook 16 communism. As you can see the most Jews are in the East along with the communists; additionally the marking on the map show the connections; obviously where there are large number of Jews communism appears, or vice versa. First to succumb to the Jews was Russia and then Spain, which has an unknown number of Jews as the map shows. Additionally the arrows show how the Jews are moving; in the east they are moving towards Germany like an invasion. This gave a rational for the destruction of Russia before they could attack and spread their depravity.
By linking the Jews with the Soviets in such a way then the fears and hate created by the earlier Jewish propaganda spreads to the communists creating the ideal reasoning for a war in the East, one of ideology and survival.
The clock is counting down to the death of the German racial community. Spreading the belief that it was just a matter of time before the Soviets attacked the German people. Without these connections between Jews, Communism, and death the dehumanizing could not have happened to such an extent. By dehumanizing the enemies of the Reich it would make it easier to kill large numbers of them in the future war first with Poland and then with Russia.
These images helped to create the circumstance in which this destruction occurred. The dehumanizing also allowed the Holocaust to take the lives of some fifteen to twenty million individuals across Europe. Death will pursue its bloody task unless we stop the clock. Cook 18 Such an outcome would never have been possible in Without the help of both the increasing militarism and the radicalization of public anti-Semitism the Holocaust still would not have happened.
Streicher much like Goebbels created the environment in which radicalization and dehumanization could occur. While Streicher was never officially sanctioned his message was clearly accepted by Hitler and other top Nazi officials. The images that Streicher released followed and supported the changes in both laws and public policy of the Nazi Party. The strength of these new fears accompanied with the new laws that were passed in the first years after the Nazi takeover allowed the separation and then removal of Jews in Germany.
Once this happened the Nazi turned to the coming war and prepared by dehumanizing their enemies. Chief among these were the Soviets due to the ideological hatred in Nazism towards Communism. From there these Communist Jews had additional attributes attached to them. Liking them to an invading army from the east or wanting to create hell for Germans. These comparisons would be supported just years later in the brutal warfare of the Eastern Front.
The study of history is to allow us to better understand what has happened before us. The world of s Germany is a world separated by time and ideology from our own; yet the images that survived still reveal the messages that they were created to evoke.
From these images the growth of anti-Semitism and militarism can be seen; the growth of which would lead to the deadliest conflict in the history of human kind. More directly these movements allowed the largest genocide in history, The Holocaust, to occur.
No single event or single person can be pointed at for the cause of the Holocaust, but by looking at the propaganda we can see how the views of a small group would placate the masses into allowing such a tragedy to occur. It was not that the majority of Germans wanted to kill Jews, but the majority of people no longer cared for the Jews as human beings, they no longer cared what happened to these non-people. They just wanted them gone; out of the way, out of sight.
Once they were out of sight no one thought about what happened to them. It was propaganda that helped reassure the beliefs that they should see Jews and other undesirables as less than human.
It was people like Julius Streicher who wanted the destruction of the Jewish people, and with the power that they had acquired through newspapers and other media outlets that they shaped the German people, who were already looking for someone to blame to place that blame on the Jew and other dissidents.
Then use this wrongly placed blame to reduce them to something not worth caring about. Sometimes the designers of the propaganda are not aware of the goal that they are headed for. Instead it is just the next step in a long series that leads to the cliff face, each one insignificant yet still leading up.
But from the base you only the cliff, and cannot imagine how someone went so far. Cook 21 Bibliography Bytwerk, Randall L. Julius Streicher: First Cooper Square Press, Newspaper on Microfilm Held Ohio State University. Gergen, Doris. War and Genocide: A Concise History of the Holocaust.
