Black history in Germany

  February
BLACK HISTORY MONTH

The fate of black people from 1933 to 1945 in Nazi Germany and in German-occupied territories ranged from isolation to persecution, sterilization, medical experimentation, incarceration, brutality, and murder. The number of black people living in Nazi-occupied Europe was relatively small and there was no systematic program for their elimination.

The racist nature of the Nazi regime was disguised briefly during the Olympic Games in Berlin in August 1936, when 18 African American athletes competed for the U.S. team. Military service also confronted black soldiers with the horrors of the Holocaust, both as prisoners of war and as liberators.
