Anti -Semitism
This is the term given to political, social andeconomic agitation againstJews. In simple terms itmeans
‘Hatred of Jews’.
Aryan Race
This was the name of what Hitler  believed was the perfect race. Thesewere people with full German blood, blonde hair and blue eyes.
For hundreds of years Christian Europe had regarded the Jews as the
Christ -killers. At one time or another Jews had been driven out of 
almost every European country. The way they were treated inEngland in the thirteenth century is a typical example.
In1275they were made to wear a yellow badge.In1287269 Jews were hanged in the Tower of London.
This deep prejudice against Jews was still strong in the twentieth
century, especially in Germany, Poland and Eastern Europe, where
the Jewish population was very large.After the First World War hundreds of Jews were blamed for the
defeat in the War. Prejudice against the Jews grew during the
economic depression which followed. Many Germans were poor and unemployed and wanted someone to blame. They turned on theJews, many of whom were rich and successful in business.
Between 1939 and 1945
Jews were
murdered, along withhundreds of thousands of 
others, such as Gypsies,
Jehovah’s Witnesses,
disabled and thementally ill.
