Adolf Hitler “Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.” -Adolf Hitler. This essay will be over Adolf Hitler, leader of the Nazis and murderer of the Jews and countless others. Hitler got his point across to the Jews that he clearly did not want them around. He blamed them for the loss of World War II. In my opinion, I think he blamed them because they were not like him. When I say not like him I mean that they were not German or his race. Everyone had to be just the way he wanted them to be in my opinion. According to annefrank.org “by giving the Jews the blame Hitler created an enemy.” The solution to Hitler’s problem was banishment.

On September 1, 1941 Hitler ordered all of the Jews to wear a yellow star. If they removed it and were caught they were imprisoned and taken to labor camps or shot on the spot. Catchers searched for hidden Jews everywhere. If Catchers found them they would be taxed large amounts of money. Jews didn’t have much money already especially since they had taken over their businesses and workplaces, so being taxed was not good for them. Ghettos were starting to be built for the Jews to transport into from their homes. The Jews had to stay in there for a very long. Every once in awhile someone would get transported out of the ghetto and never be seen or heard from again. Eventually Hitler began mass transportations from the ghettos to concentration camps starting with those people viewed as the least useful: the sick, old and weak, and the very young. At first Hitler started to gas those that were not useful. Other men and women who were in good condition were put to work. The first gassings began at the camp of Belzec, near Lublin, on March 17, 1942. From 1942 to 1945, Jews were deported to the camps from all over Europe, including German- controlled territory as well as those countries allied with Germany. The heaviest deportations took place during the summer and fall of 1942, when more than 300,000 people were deported from the Warsaw ghetto…show more content…
A cold war between the United Stated and the Soviet Union began in the result of the War. Wars would follow this one called “surrogate wars.” World War II lasted for 12 years. Hitler had built countless camps where 11 million people were murdered. 6 million of those were Jews. The Jewish population was cut down so much. Two out of every three Jews were killed. Hundreds of thousands of Jews established their homes somewhere else. Many left Europe and went to numerous amounts of places. Yehuda Bauer, a survivor of the Holocaust said, “Thou shalt not be a victim, thou shalt not be a perpetrator, but, above all, thou shalt not be a bystander.” There were many Holocaust views from the Jews especially about their God. “‘God is dead.’ If there were a God, he would surely have prevented the Holocaust. Since God did not prevent it, then God as traditionally understood either does not exist or has changed in some way. For some this means that God has abandoned them, while for others it means God never did exist. Jews must be in the world for themselves. This may mean a turn to atheism or perhaps a turn to some more like pantheism. Sherman Wine holds that no God can possibly exist, while Richard Rubenstein has come to suggest a kind of neo-paganism as the best alternative.” Jews were frightened everywhere and they led their minds to believe things because of their thoughts. There are very few survivors left now to tell of their experience. One day there will be
