Humiliation was a common emotional response experienced by many people during and after the Holocaust and World War II. Rituals of public humiliation—such as forcibly shaving Jewish men’s beards, parading couples accused of violating Nazi racial laws, or subjecting people to forced physical exercise—became common features of Nazi persecution. Many people accused of collaborating with the Nazis were also publicly shamed after the war.
