Jews were defined on immoral pseudoscientific beliefs and stereotypical physical features like having big noses, being fat or pudgy, greedy, cheap, and valuing only money. They were required by law to register for identity cards. They separated Jews using visible signals such as having yellow stars sewn onto their clothing, and they had to have a Jewish label on passports and businesses. Jews' livelihood and belongings were taken from them. Laws forbade them to have certain jobs, live in certain ares, own businesses, or have bank accounts. After intensified discrimination, German Jewish children were not allowed to attend school. Jews' travel was restricted, and they weren't allowed to own phones, cameras, radios, or pets. In 1939, they were moved from their homes to ghettos where they were forced to work as slave laborers with little food, shelter, and warmth. Started in 1941, but extremely after 1942, they brought Jews to concentration, work, and death camps. About two-thirds of the Jews in Europe were killed during the Holocaust. I just learned about this in school, that's why I know this.
