It all started when Hitler becomes Chancellor of Germany, January 30th, 1933. At this same time, the Nazi party takes power in Germany. In February 27th, The Nazis burn the Reichstag building, which was the seat of the German government. The burning of this building let Hitler envelope power under the bluff of protecting the nation from threats to its security. Thus, Hitler is granted emergency powers. In March 22, of the same year, Nazis opened 4 concentration camps from central to northern Germany with one camp designated for women. Soon after the opening of the camps, the German Parliament passed the Enabling Act, giving Hitler Dictoral Powers. On April 11th, a decree issued by the Nazis defined what a non-Aryan was, "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.” Fifteen days later, Hermann Göring creates the Gestapo in the German state of Prussia.

In the same year, the Nuremberg race law is passed. This law destitute German Jews of their right of citizenship. It gave them the status of "Subject". It also prohibited Jews to marry or have any sexual relations with Aryans or to hire and young Arayan women as a maid. By February 10, 1936 The German Gestapo was placed above the law. They were able to arrest, beat and execute anyone without following legal procedures. By August 1st 1936, the Berlin Olympics takes place. Hitler and the higher ranking Nazi's try to use this as an opportunity to show the world how dynamic the Nazi were.
