Although tempted to join the debate on the current call to boycott goods from Israel, I am not going to join. I rather stick to what I know best, history. .
On April 1, 1933, the Nazis in Germany began with the boycott of Jewish businesses. They claimed it was a retaliation to the calls of boycott on German goods by foreign critics of the Nazi Party.
In reality the Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses was part of the early measures for eventual eradication of the Jews.
Below are just a few examples of those boycotts, they were OFTEN accompanIed by the SA or SS.
“Germans protect yourselves, don’y buy Jewish”
