BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : BLACK PEOPLE IN NAZI GERMANY : 1936 to 1945

The Nazi banned Jazz music because it was invented by Black People. They thought "Black Race" was inferior in their eyes the " Aryan" race was superior than all other races. In 1033 around 5000 black people mainly men lived in Germany. Most of them came from German Colonies in Africa, some were married to German woman and had children with them. The Nazi were unsure of how to treat the black subjects although they were considered inferior they only formed a small group who did not represent a threat to Germany. The Nazi wanted to show that black people were treated in Germany than in other countries like America. For a time young black people were allowed  join the Hitlers Youth, eventual more that 3000 black German were put into concentration camps. How ever most of them were not arrested because of there skin color, but because they were Communist, Jehovah Witnesses or because they played the forbidden Jazz Music.





































After the first world war, France occupied the German Rhineland. The French army of occupation included Black Soldiers from the  African Colonies  and some of them had children with German women. These children were known as the " Rhineland Bastards ". The Nazi thought it was a scandal that white German  women had children with Black Soldiers from an enemy army. In 1937 385 of these children were rounded up and sterilized in clinics, they were unable to have children in the future.
