Adolf Hitler is appointed Chancellor of Germany, then a nation with a Jewish population of 566,000. The German Parliament passes the Enabling Act, giving Hitler dictatorial authority. The Nazis issue a decree defining a non-Aryan as “anyone descended from non-Aryan, especially Jewish, parents or grandparents. One parent or grandparent classifies the descendant as non-Aryan…especially if one parent or grandparent was of the Jewish faith.”
