Party Rally of Freedom takes place. It is at the seventh Party Congress that the new Reich Citizen’s Law, and Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour, which were known thereafter as the Nuremberg laws, are proclaimed. The laws define two degrees of humanity: the Reichbürger, the Citizen of Pure German Blood, and the Staatsangehörige, the subject of the state, i.e. Jews. Intermarriage between the two groups is strictly forbidden. The lot of Jews living in Germany is getting progressively worse, and many are leaving the country.
The Nazi swastika banner is made the official national flag.
