April 1, 1933 Nazi Boycott of Jewish Businesses in Germany

Nazis Boycott Jewish Businesses 1933The Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany took place on April 1st 1933, as a response to the Jewish boycott of German goods soon after Adolf Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor on January 30th, 1933.

It was the first of many measures against the Jews of Germany, which ultimately culminated in the ‘final solution.’  it was a state-managed campaign of ever-increasing harassment, arrests, systematic pillaging, forced transfer of ownership to Nazi party activist (managed by the chamber of commerce) and ultimately murder of owners defined as ‘Jew.’ in Berlin alone, there were 50,000 Jewish owned businesses. By 1945 they all had ‘Aryan’ owners.
