In retaliation to Jews for killing a German policeman in self defense on July 31, 1940 the nazis carried out a public mass execution(“Holocaust”). This day was later named “Bloody Wednesday”. They were tortured by anxiety, were insecure of the present, torn between hope and despair, and felt helpless. There were many people who were persecuted during the Holocaust that weren’t Jewish: spouses of Jews, Roma Gypsies, resisters, priests and pastor, Jehovah Witnesses, political enemies, homosexuals, the disabled, and African-German descent. Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
The historical background of Ben Kamm and the other jews didn 't have that greatest historical background, It looked like this: Hitler was planning on annihilating all of the jews
The night of the long knives (often called operation hummingbird) was carried out swiftly and harshly to “punish” the politicians for being conservative anti-Nazi. A last definite point is that Hitler used gaseous euthanasia to quickly and cheaply execute the Jews he held in his concentration camps. People were put into the gassing chambers and then killed with carbon monoxide. An estimated 120,000 people were killed (punished) through the Nazi "Euthanasia" engagements. All these points truly prove the fact that Hitler did follow the political philosophies of Machiavelli in this
Hitler was born on 20 April, 1889, in Braunau Am Inn, Austria. When World War 1 started, Hitler was enraged and signed up for the Bavarian army. He had many near- death experiences, such as being wounded, and being temporarily blind. For his bravery, he was awarded two Iron Crosses. While Hitler was recovering from his injuries after the war, communism was starting to become popular, which he hated.
The Holocaust was a persecution and eventual mass murder of Jews during the Nazi regime in the World War II. An estimate of six million Jews were killed, all because of their religion and beliefs. The Nazi thought they were the superior race, and Jews were “inferior” as well as a danger to the ‘perfect’ German community. Gradually, the German government was filled with people who believed that Jews needed to be purged. They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes.
The Jews were not the only victims of persecution and murder by the Nazis. Homosexuals, Gypsies, Clergy, people with a physical or mental disabilities, Jehovah 's Witnesses, Poles and other Slavs were also victims. Those are many of different type of people that the Nazis had it out for. I only thought that the Nazis wanted to kill the Jews. There is evidence as early as 1919 that Hitler had a strong hatred for Jews.
Since Hitler wanted everyone to be like the “pure” or Aryan race he created the Nuremberg laws which are the strict laws that eventually led to the Holocaust. By Hitler creating these laws it deprived the Jews as being German citizens. In the World War II Timeline it states “the Nuremberg laws are passed in Germany, stripping Jews of their rights as German citizens.” They were no longer permitted to work in certain professions and were forbidden to marry anyone of the “pure” or Aryan race . In “The Holocaust” “Nazi ideology” it states “...banned Jews from many professions, and prevented Jews from marrying those they considered Aryan or “pure” Germans.”
The Holocaust In the late 1930’s Adolf Hitler had decided that the world would be better off if there were no Jewish people. All Jewish kids were kicked out of all Activities and school. The Gestapo Police were policemen that only followed Hitler's orders, they were ordered by Hitler to imprison or kill all unwanted people, such as blacks, Polish, disabled, and homosexuals. (Mackay 6)
Genocide became the word to describe the horrific killing of millions in 1933 when Hitler came to power. The Nazis viewed Jews as evil and wanted nothing to do with them. At first it was just giving them a hard time and making their life rough, but soon it evolved into something nobody could describe at that moment. By 1939, about six million Jews were slaughtered by Nazis. Hitler was taking his power way beyond the limits.
How did Hitler, a young innocent Austrian boy, become the evilest man in history? It all started with Hitler’s dream of being an artist. Hitler didn’t want to do any art he wanted to become a commercial artist. Hitler would submit his art to a museum but the museum would reject his art. After being rejected, Hitler joined the Nazis.
Most people know that Hitler killed over six millions of Jews during the Holocaust. However, why did Hitler hate Jews? Why did he tried to wipe out this entire race of people? There are several possible reasons that may lead us to the answer. (Margaret whyguides)
Similar to the first World War, World War II was a dispute between powers and or countries and involved the death of million of civilians and militants of those disputing countries. There are many events that have made World War II significant and i will show you in this essay. World War II started basically because of one of the most known killer in the world Adolf Hitler. His role in the Holocaust is greatly significant because of the way that he punished, treated, and through of jews using concentration camps. In concentration camps jews were gassed, imprisoned and forced to do things that they didn't want to like forced labor.
Around the 1920’s and the 1930’s, two famous political leaders came to power in Europe-Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. These leaders were known for outmaneuvering their other opponents to gain fame and power. As they grew with age and wisdom, they continued to become more ruthless and continued to violate people's rights. Due to these leaders, the U.S Constitution has safeguards regarding these historical events to protect us from a strong, powerful government.
Vo, Kayla Period 3 3/28/14 The Nazi Party’s Ascension to Power in Germany The signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 intended to bring worldwide peace after World War I and to penalize Germany for being responsible for the casualties that resulted. The penalty caused Germany to lose its pride, power, and nationalism, thus leaving the country in a helpless economic state and in an abyss. This poor condition after the Great War in 1918 caused citizens to have a strong will for change, which provided the perfect stage for political parties to rise in power. One political party in particular, the National Socialist German Worker's Party--otherwise known as the Nazi Party--captured the interest of the German public.
