3  Took away citizenship and civil rights of Jews = No protection under the law  Illegal for Jew to marry a non-Jew  Almost impossible to earn a living – banned from most industry  “Jewish” became a genetic designation, not religious  If you have 1 Jewish grandparent; then you are considered Jewish under this law


5 Re-Occupation of the Rhineland  German troops march into the Rhineland  No one stops the German advance  Hitler orders troops to turn back if met with any resistance  T of V forbids Germany from rearming the Rhineland- they have broken the Treaty of Versailles, …but why go to war? …No one will go to war over Germany reoccupying their own country

6  Civil War between fascism and communism  Franco supported by Italy and Germany  1500 Canadians will defy the government and go to fight- Why?  No jobs – Great Depression, concerned about the spread of fascism  This is where Hitler will test his “war machine” – figure out how to use the new technologies


8  Nazi soldiers occupy Austria w/o a single shot fired- only the threat of force  No attempt to stop Hitler- Why?  Referendum held – voted to join Germany (German troops are in the capital)  Austria wanted to join Germany in 1919, but forbidden to do so.
