Description

Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany in 1933. He then immediately began to pass laws against Jews and other “undesirables.” He also opened the first concentration camp in 1933, in which persecuted people were forced to work until they couldn’t anymore, and then were murdered. Two years later, he passed the Nuremberg Laws, which were legal persecution against Jews. At this point, Jews were no longer even allowed to go to school, and Germans were encouraged not to buy from Jewish shops. Jews were not considered German citizens anymore. Three years later, a synagogue, or Jewish place of worship, was destroyed, Jews’ passports were stamped with a “J,” and that year, Kristallnacht happened. In all, during the Holocaust, 11 million people were murdered. That is the equivalent of everyone in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama being murdered . Six million of those people were Jews, or the equivalent of one and a half times the current population of Louisiana. Manfred Klepper was born in Germany in 1931. He witnessed the first seven years of Hitler’s reign. This is his story.All of the royalties from this book will go to Temple Shalom, in Lafayette, Louisiana.show more
