Michael Ringmeier's insight:

B'nai B'rith has been supporting the Jewish community with unity, security and continuity for the past 170 years. They promote Jewish leaders and young Jewish leaders. They combat antisemitism by shining a spot light on these situations or events. They mainly focus fighting antisemitism by hosting antisemitic conferences.

Schindler's List (5/9) Movie CLIP - A Small Pile of Hinges (1993) HD

Michael Ringmeier's insight:

This clip shows how brutal the Nazi leaders were to the Jewish concetration camp workers. They also tested them to see if they were telling the truth and they were hard workers or not. But in the end this is just another way to show how vicious and down grading the Nazis were to the Jews.

Gale Global Issues in Context: Antisemitism

Article from Gale Global Issues in Context

Michael Ringmeier's insight:

This article talks about antisemitism in a broad scale. Antisemitism occurs because of religious conflicts between Judaism and other religions. Antisemitism was everywhere before World War two, in political laws, people and government officials openly spoke about antisemitism, its just antisemitism didn't show because it wasn't a common thing to physically harm Jewish people. As soon as the Nazi party rose to power, antisemitism turned into destroying anything with non-German origin or anything Jewish and physically harming Jews became popular and occurred more often. After World War two ended antisemitism died off, but no completely. For example, one type of antisemitism that still existed after the war was the denial of the holocaust.

Aryanization

Michael Ringmeier's insight:

Right before the start of World War II Antisemitism was at a all time high. This included boycotting Jewish businesses. This wiped out most of the Jewish Businesses, but for the rest that remained the Germans had another plan. Aryanization is a term used to describe the transfer of a store owner from a Jewish person to a so called dominate German Aryan or just Aryan race. Aryanization occurred at the start of World War II. Kristallnacht was a huge widespread day of Aryanization and destruction among Jewish Businesses. After the businesses have been Aryanized they would take the Jewish owners to concentration camps.

Book Burning

Michael Ringmeier's insight:

This article talks about the rise and fall of Jewish culture before, during, and after World War Two in Berlin, Germany. Jewish population was on the rise before Kristallnacht. Jewish people from the east were moving to Berlin because it was the center for culture. When Kristallnacht happened Jewish synagogues and scriptures were destroyed, along with books which all contain their culture. This was also know as Book Burning, something that Nazis did to destroy Jewish culture and show they have more power over them.
