Hitler during the session of the Reichstag, when the “Nuremberg Laws” were adopted (Stadtarchiv Nuremberg).
On 15 September, 1935, in the large hall of the Kulturverein Building, the Reichstag, brought into Nazi party line, adopted the so-called “Nuremberg Laws”. A “Law of Citizenship of the Reich” and a “Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour” were rushed through. In the “Law of Citizenship of the Reich”, Jews were declared to be second-class citizens and the “Law for the Protection of German Blood” forbade marriage between Jewish and non-Jewish Germans and introduced the crime of “Racial Disgrace”. From 1936 on, these regulations also applied to Sinti, Roma and coloured people. Thus the racially motivated exclusion and persecution of parts of the population was made State Law.
