From 1933 to 1945, those deemed inferior or unwanted by Hitler and the Nazi party faced many forms of isolation. Through the use of propaganda and censorship, those targeted were slowly isolated from society. These groups saw their civil rights gradually taken away and eventually disenfranchised, losing the protections afforded by citizenship. Without these protections, the Nazis were able to begin physically segregating these groups from society with the introduction of ghettos, and later killing centers. For survivors of Hitler’s 12-year regime, the long-term effects of isolation continue to affect them decades after the Holocaust. View this online exhibit that is part of Holocaust Learn and Remember, presented by the San Antonio Public Library and Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio. Holocaust Learn and Remember is a month-long series hosted annually in the month of January. This year’s theme, Isolation, and Discrimination in the Holocaust will focus on the experiences of those that were forced to face isolation in order to avoid the actions of Hitler and the Nazi Party.
