How do governments institutionalize hatred? How do governments legalize the murder of its own citizens, and their children? The Nazi government in the 1930s took traditional antisemitism and created a bureaucratic superstructure whose goals were to disenfranchise and eventually exterminate its own citizens and those who fell under its control. What was the legal progression that started with discrimination and ended with the genocide of European Jewry?
