Adolf Hitler’s, “On Nation and Race”, was not one of my favorite readings. The way he referred to a race of people was very disturbing to me. Wanting to completely get rid of a race is an awful idea and I will never understand how people actually followed him in his ideas. He acted as if only one race of people should be allowed on this earth which in my eyes is so very wrong. Hitler also compared human beings to nature and animals in a way that I did not understand. He used many fallacies and assumptions in his writings to prove his argument.
He believed you had to be white, blue eyes, and blond haired. Hitler quoted and used american eugenics in a lot of what he did. Many Germans were also forced to be sterilized if they had any of disorders or disabilities, but the thing he did different was he would send some of the sterilized people he saw as “lesser” to gas chambers to be killed. In 1940’s is when eugenics got bad in Germany. There was roughly 5,000 sterilizations a month.
Similar to the middle class, Hitler also blamed the Jews for many of the problems that occurred at the time. As a result, the German’s supported the idea of the Final Solution. The Final Solution was the Nazi’s attempt to create the perfect Aryan race by annihilating the Jews. Through Hitler’s attempts to create a unified, perfect Aryan race by exterminating the common enemy, Jews, he was supported by the German’s. In document three, we see how appealing Hitler was in his speeches.
During the Holocaust roughly 11 million people were killed, and 6 million of those victims were Jews. The calamitous amount of people that died under Hitler’s hand was only seen as the first step to Germany’s purification. Hitler’s intentions could be seen as bad to us, but to everyone who followed, or served him his intentions were good. Despite the fact that Hitler believed that what he was doing
Hitler led a regime of German people to conform against other people with different religions, ethnicities, and sexualities. Hitler was an idol for Germany and Jewish people were the scapegoats for Germany’s problems. Hitler convinced and manipulated millions of people to fight for his agenda. Hitler directed the minds of his followers to support a cause that killed millions of people which is now known as the Holocaust. Hitler was able to execute his plans for the Holocaust because of the aid from others which was demonstrated by Nazi leaders, the German military, and the Axis powers.
In the autobiography Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler, he expresses his political ideologies and strategies in ruling over millions of people. He mostly reveals his perspectives on racial matters, asserting that the Aryan race is dominant over any other ethnic groups. Although Adolf Hitler’s statements successfully convinced and appealed to almost all the people in the Germanic nation, his arguments, however, are undoubtedly loaded with logical fallacies. In Chapter 11 of the autobiography, Hitler mainly focuses on his notions regarding racial superiority.
Hitler murdered millions of the Jewish people because he believed Jews were of a lesser race and they deserved to die because they ran most of the banks. Hitler’s mass genocide of the Jews and others that he viewed as not perfect, was mostly biased on the fact that he thought he was cleaning the world and he never thought of it as corrupt. Hitler’s actions of killing innocent people is also much like Macbeths murderous behavior, in which they both put morals to the side, to get what they
During WWII, the anti-Semitic Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler emphasized purity of race and opposed any forms of variation in the racial distribution of his country. To achieve his goals of racial purity, Hitler began to unfairly assert that the reason for the humiliating defeat of Germany was the betrayal of the Jewish population in the country. Through his memoir and propaganda, he provoked the public to discriminate against the Jews, or even eliminate them completely in the country. In addition, Hitler utilized many unethical and unjust means against the Jews such as destroying all the books written by Jews, and shutting down all Jewish-owned business. He even enacted the law to humiliate the Jews, and make them to become the targets of the public by forcing them to wear a yellow star mark.
For instance, Hitler believed in ‘Volksgemeinschaft’ a community formed of racially pure people, typically full-blooded German people and anyone who did not fit into this idealistic such as Gypsies, Jews, Disabled People and other minorities -living in Germany- were either killed or sent to concentration camps to work to their death. Throughout Hitlers total dictactorship 11 million people were killed, 6 million of which were
When rising to power Hitler sees the Jewish people as the enemy race. As a result, he plans to exterminate every last one of them. Wicked men of his Nazi army captured Jews, then changed them profoundly; they took away
The Holocaust is considered one of the most notable events to happen in human history. Adolf Hitler’s plan was to exterminate all races of which he thought was inferior to his master race, The Aryan Race. To effectively kill them, he made concentration camps where the prisoners would be worked to death. Sadly, most of the races targeted and killed were the Jews. They were blamed for everything such as World War I and World War II.
Hitler’s speeches convinced people that they were the main cause of all the problems happening in their country. He then convinced everyone through powerful speeches that only Germans should be alive because they were the “perfect race” according
Aryanization was used by the Nazis to either help gain supporters or reward their already faithful followers. Even though there were still a lot of non-Jews who were not a part of the Holocaust, one way in which many instantly became involved was through Aryanization. In order to “de-Jew” the economy, all of the property and money owned by the Jews had to be taken. There were some moments during the Holocaust where Aryanization increased dramatically. One event was Kristallnacht. Jewish stores and property were burned down and destroyed. After this, the Nazis approved public confiscation of Jewish shops and property. Another important event was the publication of the Eleventh Decree in November 1941 (Dean, 225). According to this law passed
