Slone 1 Cody Slone Judy Howell Felix Frankfurter 3/23/11 Felix Frankfurter “All our work, our whole life is a matter of semantics, because words are the tools with which we work, the material out of which laws are made, out of which the Constitution was written. Everything depends on our understanding of them." -Felix Frankfurter Felix Frankfurter was born on the 15th of November in 1882 in the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, to a Jewish household. In 1894, he along with his family emigrated to New York City. Unable to speak english upon arrival to america he quickly mastered the language well enough to graduate City College and gain admittance to Harvard Law School.
Hitler deliberately expressed his hate toward Jews and gave ample warnings, as it was all written down in his autobiography “Mein Kampf”. In 1935, the introduction of the Nuremberg Laws stripped German Jews of their citizenship and civil rights. Jewish rights were steadily restricted, as in many cases Jewish political and intellectual leaders were the first to be sent to concentration camps. The Night of Broken Glass, on November 9, 1938 lead to the death of approximately 100 Jews, while other 30,000 were sent to concentration camps. Jewish businesses along with almost every synagogue in Germany were damaged or completely destroyed.
Some Jews tried to fight for their rights. The most famous revolt was the Warsaw Revolt in Warsaw, Poland which lasted 28 days. After the Jews were sent to the camps some of them were taken to gas chambers and were killed with deadly gas. After the war the camps were turned into memorials and museums. The conditions at these camps were beyond comprehension.
Soon they were required to wear the Star of David on their clothing to identify their race and were forced out of public schools. Eventually they were given food rations and forced to live in Ghettos. A Ghetto was an enclosed city district where the Germans relocated the Jewish people to separate them from the non-Jewish ("Holocaust Encyclopedia"). They were forced to live in horrible conditions where personal space no longer existed and food was scarce. The largest ghetto in Poland was the Warsaw ghetto, where more than 400,000 Jews were crowded into an area of 1.3 square miles ("Holocaust Encyclopedia").
A measured unison, sundered by voices of command, arose from the Zelternergasse. Day had dawned, and the armored vanguards of the Third Reich were entering Prague. On the 19th, the authorities received an accusation against Jaromir Hladik; on the same day, at dusk, he was arrested. He was taken to a barracks, aseptic and white, on the opposite bank of the Moldau. He was unable to refute a single one of the charges made by the Gestapo: his maternal surname was Jaroslavski, his blood was Jewish, his study of Boehme was Judaizing, his signature had helped to swell the final census of those protesting the Anschluss.
