Jews in Germany (Nuremberg Laws)
By Sharon Fabian

1     What is an average day like for your family? Maybe it's a day in the middle of the week. You and your parents get ready for school and for work when you wake up in the morning. The trip to school is uneventful; maybe you're still trying to wake up. At school you do your class work, have lunch in the cafeteria, go outside for PE, and daydream about what you'll do on Saturday. After school, you join the rest of your family for dinner at home or go out to a fast food restaurant. Maybe you run a few errands with your parents or do a few chores. Then it's homework, a little TV or a video game, and time for a shower and bed.
2     You might call it a boring day, but to many other people, it would have been a day almost too good to imagine.
3     Jews who lived in Germany in the 1930s and the early 1940s had a life that is hard for us to imagine now. To them there was no average day. Each day brought new hardships and new life-threatening challenges.
4     At school, Jewish kids faced threats and intimidation. They were treated as outcasts. They might go to school one day and find out that their Jewish teacher had been fired and replaced with a teacher who followed the Nazi policy. The Nazi policy was hatred of Jews.
5     A Jewish kid might come home to find that her father had just lost his job because he was Jewish. On the way home, maybe she had passed a newspaper stand and had seen a paper with headlines that shouted threats and insults about Jews.
