Abstract

Under the Nazi regime, criminals with no discernible ideological attachment to Nazism were able to exploit the marginal position of Jews within society, and even felt encouraged to commit “ordinary” crimes—robbery and rape—against Jews. Yet such criminals at times undermined state-approved National Socialist anti-Jewish policy. Through an analysis of crime in deportation-era Berlin, the author of this article examines the role played by “ordinary” criminals in the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany.
