"As a group, those left behind...were displaced from their former livelihoods, had their property confiscated, and were cut off from normal social contact with the German population. By the beginning of 1939, Jews were forbidden to use hospitals, schools, and universities, forbidden to practice licensed occupations, and required to carry identifying papers and to assume the name Sara or Israel; by the end of the year there were food rations, forced work, punitive taxes, and restrictions on housing, transportation, and communication. With no aspect of their existence exempt from coercion, Jews were a captive population whose only hope was that things would not get worse."
