As Hitler tightened his grip on the lives of Jews in countries governed by the Nazis, he set out rules stating exactly what they were and were not allowed to do. Read the following extract from Anne Frank’s diary to see what life was like for Anne and other Jews under Nazi rule.
Saturday 20 June, 1942
After May 1940, the good times were few and far between: first there was the
war, then the capitulation and then the arrival of the Germans, which is when
the trouble started for the Jews. Our freedom was severely restricted by a
series of anti-Jewish decrees: Jews were required to wear a yellow star; Jews
were required to turn in their bicycles; Jews were forbidden to use trams; Jews
were forbidden to ride in cars, even their own; Jews were required to do their
shopping between 3.00 and 5.00pm; Jews were required to frequent only
Jewish-owned barbershops and beauty salons; Jews were forbidden to be out
on the streets between 8.00pm and 6.00am; Jews were forbidden to go to theatres, cinemas or any other forms of entertainment; Jews were forbidden to use swimming pools, tennis courts, hockey fields or any other athletic fields; Jews were forbidden to go rowing; Jews were forbidden to take part in any athletic activity in public; Jews were forbidden to sit in their gardens or those of their friends after 8.00pm; Jews were forbidden to visit Christians in their homes; Jews were required to attend Jewish schools, etc. You couldn’t do this and you couldn’t do that, but life went on.
Task: Complete a table by listing the things Anne was forbidden from doing. Then complete a list of rules that you have to follow at home, for example, I am not allowed to eat in my bedroom.
