laws are quoted below:

April 7, 1933
Laws for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service
"Civil servants who are not of Aryan (non-Jewish) descent are to be retired."
April 7, 1933
Law Regarding Admission to the Bar
"Persons who, according to the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service
of April 7, 1933, are of non-Aryan descent may be denied admission to the bar."

April 25, 1933
Law Against the Crowding of German Schools
and Institutions of Higher Learning
"In new admissions, care is to be taken that the number of Reich Germans who, according to
the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service of April 7, 1933, are of
non-Aryan descent, out of the total attending each school and each faculty, does not
exceed the proportion of non-Aryans within the Reich German population."

1. How would these laws affect the Jewish population?

2. If you were Jewish would you leave Germany? Explain

Much of this anti-Semitism was rooted, first, in religious beliefs that arose more than 1500 years before Hitler came to power, and second, on political beliefs, often cynically exploited for political gain. Though it was not accepted by everyone, this existing anti-Semitism was common and provided a receptive audience for Hitler\'s anti-Semitic claims. Hitler did not just exploit the existi

    germ line gene therapy Whether it is referred to by its scientific term "syngamy" or by the general term "conception", the moment a sperm cell unites with an egg cell stirs, both in the scientist and the layperson, much awe and reverence. It is the point at which a new and unique genome is created. To some it is the instant a new person comes into existence. Such a union has been repeated for billions of years since its advent in the first, simple organisms. It is a means by which evolution can

    Eugenics and a Brave New World Eugenics. The word strikes fear in the hearts of many. Visions of Aldous Huxley\'s Brave New World, along with memories of Nazi experimentation and the Lynchburg sterilization colonies in the United States, cause many to dismiss the idea of cloning immediately. However, in reality, cloning has nothing to do with eugenics or genetic engineering. Cloning is the duplication of genetic material without any alteration. Germ line therapy, however, involves changing the m

    The American Eugenics Movement The idea of eugenics was first introduced by Sir Francis Galton, who believed that the breeding of two wealthy and successful members of society would produce a child superior to that of two members of the lower class.

Despite the blatant lack of research, two men, Georges Vacher de Lapouge and Jon Alfred Mjoen, played
