Other peaceful protest[edit]

I saw a documentary once about World War 2 which showed a peaceful mass protest one one of the occupied countries, perhaps Denmark. The German forces did not break up the protest. The narration said the Germans viewed the inhabitants of that country as of "good racial stock" and would not have tolerated a similar protest in most of the occupied countries. Thus this may not have been the only such protest. But the other incident needs documentation. Edison (talk) 21:32, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Media coverage[edit]

Was the Rosenstrasse protest covered by either the Allied media or the Axis media? This is a pretty important detail left out of this article.--gwc (talk) 07:09, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Wolf Gruner theory[edit]

The reference to Gruner's idea that the Jewsish husbands in question were being held to select leaders of "legal Jewish organizations" sounds a bit crackpot. Why is 1943 Nazi Germany supposedly concerned with setting up Jewish leaders?76.169.35.134 (talk) 21:52, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

I agree.--74.195.63.121 (talk) 14:30, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
According to this article by FSU history professor, Nathan Stoltzfus, the arrests of the intermarried jews were part of the Schlußaktion of the Final Solution. Here is the link: www.rosenstrasse-protest.de/texte/texte_stoltzfus.html. According to him, Goebbels and other Nazi officials were in part persuaded not to deport the men as a result of the loyalty of the Aryan wives. According to him, they were originally arrested for deportation. No mention is made about choosing leaders.--74.195.63.121 (talk) 15:04, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

I agree too. The article on rosenstrasse-protest.de web-site clearly states “Yet when the (non-Jewish) German populace protested nonviolently and en masse, the Nazis made concessions. When Germans protested for Jews, Jews were saved.” which pretty much contradicts this Wikipedia article. --Gurdiga (talk) 21:42, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
