The Racial State: The Nazi party held many different racial laws, announced in Nuremberg in 1935, which were named the Nuremberg Laws. These included prohibitions against German Jews, preventing them from having relations to people of German heritage. Though many races were targeted, it was specifically Jews put under pressure, leading to the outbreaks that caused World War 2. Jews in Germany were defined as anyone with three or four Jewish grandparents. Consequently, many people who converted from Judaism to other religions were still considered Jews, and thus discriminated against.
