Boycott, Anti-Jewish
   On 1 April 1933, the Nazis authorized a boycott of Jewish enterprises in Germany. The boycott was ostensibly in retaliation against American Jewish leaders who urged a boycott of German goods because of the Nazi persecution of the Jews in Germany. The boycott lasted only one day because the government feared that if it were to continue, it would hurt Germany’s economic position in the world community. Although the Sturmabteilung (SA) “discouraged” customers from patronizing Jewish businesses, the boycott does not appear to have had the support of the German people.
