During this time (1942 to 1943) the villagers listen to Radio London to get updates on the war. In the spring of 1944, the success of the Russian front indicates , to Jews, the impending collapse of the German army. The Jews doubt Hitler can complete his "ethnic cleansing" against the Jews. The villagers grow complacent arguing about petty ideas like what you mentioned. They fail to understand that Hitler is closer to them than the Allies and will do as much damage as he can.
