I spent my Thanksgiving morning researching the mass deportation and execution of the German Jewish population! Then I went and made charts of my data. I asked questions of the room as I was doing so. My Jewish grandfather was massively confused. “Aryans include muslims,” he kept saying. “We’re talking about Nazis,” we kept explaining.
This was the first chart we made. Jews actually made up about 1% of the population of Germany. They numbered in the hundred thousands while the actual German population was in the ten millions. At my boyfriend’s suggestion I made a modification to my chart:
This is so you could see what I was getting at: the dramatic increase of overall German population, thanks to economic boom and Nazi encouragement to procreate, while you see the effects of mass deportation and execution of the Jewish population. All on one chart! ISN’T THAT CHEERY? ENJOY YOUR TURKEY EVERYONE! GLUCKLICHE TAGE DANKT ALLEN!
