Germany has hosted the Olympic Games twice: Berlin in 1936 and Munich in 1972.
No. Not all Germans are Jews and not all Jews are German. But there are German Jews, as well as Jews with many other nationalities.
No, of course not. The Jews were a small minority and many of the German Jews had been trying for decades to be more German than the Germans.
They required them to leave. Jews were banned from many places and eventually deported.
There were many German-Jews who at the time of the WWII, but there wasn't really a "Good" leader who was all that great to the Jews. The Jews were basically cut to nothing by all the Germans.
436 athletes. A total Olympic delegation of 750.
Many German Jews were sent to Auschwitz. Others were slaughtered in Belarus and the killing fields of Latvia.
The best estimate is about 165,000 (or more) German Jews and 65,000 Austrian Jews. These figures include German and Austrian Jews who fled to other countries that were subsequently invaded by the Nazis, such as the Netherlands and France, and were deported from there.
195,000 died, but not all of them were German Jews.
Spain has competed in 17 Winter Olympic Games (all since 1936) and in 21 Summer Olympic Games (all except 1896, 1904, 1908, 1912, and 1936).
About 100,000 (out of a total Jewish population of about 550,000). 12,000 German Jews were killed in action.
Many Germans are Jews. Many Jews are German and British, Norwegian, Australian etc. Germans like Jews just fine.
463 athletes represented Germany in the 2008 Olympic Games.
Of course. Not all Germans believed in the Nazi way. In fact, many of the Jews who were put to death were German themselves.
The Jews had no problem about the Germans, until the Nazis persecuted them and made their lives impossible. In fact, the German Jews and many Jews outside Germany were pro-German till 1933.
twice (Berlin 1936 and Munich 1972).
Yes and No. Jews have origins in the Middle East and, therefore, most Jews do not have ancestors who lived in Germany for many centuries, if at all. Those Jews are certainly not Germans. As for the Jews of Germany, they spent much of the 1700s and 1800s fighting for integration with Christian Germany. By the 1930s, they considered themselves and were considered to be Germans. When the Nazis took control of the German government, the distinction between Germans and Jews became apparent once again. Many Jews from eastern Europe have German-language names (often via Yiddish) and that can be confusing, since it is not necessarily the case that a Jew with a German or Yiddish surname has German Jewish ancestors.
For a very long time the native language of German Jews has been German. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union (1991) a significant number Jews from the former Soviet Union (perhaps as many as 150,000) have settled in Germany. The second generation generally speaks German, the first generation a range of languages, which often includes Russian and Yiddish.
I don't think there is a count for WWI. Remember, WWI was not fought because of persectution of Jews but on the invasion of Belgium.
there were alot of them past
About 30,000 German Jews were sent to concentration camps in the aftermath of Kristallnacht.
