Involving six out of the seven continents, killing more than 45 million people and creating one of the most known men in mankind, Adolf Hitler. This essay will analyse “the methods used and the conditions which helped in the rise to power of one ruler of a single-party state. (Hitler)”. Adolf Hitler used chaos, violence, propaganda and a crippled government to make himself the Führer of Germany.
Have you ever wondered or thought about which laws were the main cause of the horrors that we now know of the Holocaust? During 1933 one very powerful man came to power known as Adolf Hitler. The Holocaust was all started by Hitler because he thought that everyone should take on the characteristics of the “pure” or “Aryan” race. This one man was one of Europe’s most powerful leaders killing up to six million Jews forty million people.
This means that a leader must have no mercy and punish hard to keep their people in line. This philosophy applies quite a lot to Hitler, for example, Kristallnacht (the night of broken glass). On the night of November 9, 1938, violence and hatred against Jews broke out across the German Reich and thousands of Jews were captured and killed. The morning after the massacres, 30,000 German Jewish men were arrested for the "crime" of being Jewish and sent to concentration camps, which was a harsh punishment. De Nacht der langen Messer (The night of the long knives) is another example and was a purge that took place in Germany in which Nazi soldiers carried out numerous political homicides on 77 leading figures of the left-wing Strasserist faction of the Nazi Party.

Lastly, his use of incredible speech skills caused the German people to believe in him and the use of propaganda. To begin with, Hitler was the son of an Austrian customs official.
Adolf Hitler is branded with the uprising of the Holocaust and this gives much of the world the belief that he was evil and that he killed millions of people. While he was responsible for the actions of the Final Solution, did he not alleviate the incredible economic crisis that Germany was under? The country was inflated and this is why Hitler suggested that the country switch to a dictatorship. People also have the belief that Hitler ran all of the concentration camps and that he was responsible for the undertaking of these particular domains, however; it was not Hitler who was in charge, but his SS leader. Hitler did see the Jewish people as impure and in a sense evil, only because during this time, communism was a huge threat to germany

However, one aspect of their brutality, though, is more prominent than the others: the brutality towards religion and ignorance and manipulation of the human mind. In one primary source, we see that Chinggis Khan marched into a village with 20,000 men and extracted the richest 280 men in the village. He told them that they had sinned, and told them that he was the punishment of god, sent to their village to punish them for their sins. The mongols then started taking money from the rich people, as their punishment for sinning.

Because of Hitler 's actions over 11 million were killed, 1 million of them being children. I think that the Holocaust was horrible and wrong and hopefully we will not have to experience anything like this again. I learned a lot from the books Night and The Book Thief. They made me realize how horrible the Holocaust was and what it was like to experience it. The Holocaust was a gruesome time where millions were killed, people were tortured, they were used in experiments and families were separated.
