The nazis treatment of the Jews changed between 1939-1945 for many reasons. Primarily because the WW2 had just broken out. The war opened many ways for Hitler to treat the Jews badly.

When WW2 started in September 1939, Hitler realised that the other great superpowers had turned their attention to the war and were not looking over his back at how he was treating the Jews. This meant that Hitler no longer had to behave sensitively to suit international opinion.

Heydrich and others of Hitler’s inferior members start to influence how Hitler deals with the Jews I the end Heydrich establishes the Wannsee conference in January where they came up with the final solution.
