Slava Novorossiya

            On this date, 1 April 1933, the recently elected Nazis under Julius Streicher organize a one-day boycott of all Jewish-owned businesses in Germany, ushering in a series of anti-Semitic acts. I will post information about this anti-Semitic event from Wikipedia and other links.

Israel's Department Store in Berlin on April 1, 1933 at the start of the Nazi boycott of Jewish-owned businesses. These are members of the SA (Sturmabteilung) holding placards that say: "Germans defend yourselves! Don't buy from Jews." ("Deutsche! Wehrt Euch! Kauft nicht bei Juden!")
The Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany began on 1 April 1933, claimed as a defensive reaction to a Jewish boycott of German goods, which was initiated and quickly abandoned in March 1933. It was largely unsuccessful, as the German population continued to use Jewish businesses, but revealed the intent of the Nazis to undermine the viability of Jews in Germany.

It was the first of many measures against the Jews of Germany, which ultimately culminated in the "Final Solution." It was a state-managed campaign of ever-increasing harassment, arrests, systematic pillaging, forced transfer of ownership to Nazi Party activists (managed by the Chamber of Commerce), and ultimately murder of owners defined as "Jews." In Berlin alone, there were 50,000 Jewish-owned businesses.
