So, another popular Holocaust denier meme is that Jews declared war on Nazi Germany in 1933. This made his subsequent actions against them justified (though this did not include attempting to exterminate them...of course). These subsequent actions included putting them in camps to separate them from the general population and deporting them......though, like I said, deniers say this did not include murdering millions of Jews.
So, did Jews declare war on Germany in 1933?
The short answer is no.
This meme centers around an article by the Daily Express, published on Friday, March 24th, 1933. The headline reads:
"Judea Declares War on Germany" with a caption underneath saying:
"Jews of all the World Unite in Action."
The article is actually about a boycott of German goods.
So, when is a boycott a declaration of war? If I decide to boycott an establishment, am I declaring war on it? No. I'm saying I'm not going to buy from them anymore until they modify a policy or change a behavior. I will add a link to the article itself along with additional information in comments.
