Kyle Mitchell 8th Grade English Honors Block Mrs. Guidry 30 January 2018 The Holocaust The Holocaust was one of the darkest events in history. It was a time when innocent lives were taken just because they had somewhat different beliefs. The man behind this evil plan was Adolf Hitler, the Fuhrer of Germany and the Nazi Party. He made it his goal to destroy the Jewish race and anyone else who stood in his way (Introduction). Hitler devised a long systematic plan that went on to kill thousands of Gypsies, disabled people, Poles, Russians, and most all wipe out 6 million European Jews, two-thirds of the Jewish population (Strahinich 7) (Introduction).
Over 7000 Jewish homes, stores, businesses and more were trashed, stolen from and destroyed. The Nazis even went as far as threatening the Germans who believed what they were doing to the Jews was wrong. The Nazis officially pulled the two groups apart when they took over the
The holocaust was known as a “systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its supporters. The Nazis who came into power in Germany in January 1933 believed that German’s were ‘racially inferior. '” (Introduction to the Holocaust, USHMM). During the peak of the Nazi regime, which was in the midst of the world war, the government implemented concentration camps as a method to “detain political and ideological opponents.” (Introduction to the Holocaust, USHMM). Progressively in the years leading to the end of the war, the Schutzstaffel (Hitler 's private bodyguards) and the Gestapo (secret police of Nazi Germany) imprisoned Jews, Roma, and others victims of inferior ethnic and
Originally the German government passed laws to exclude Jews from society, most prominently the Nuremberg Laws of 1935. A network of concentration camps was built starting in 1933 and ghettos were built following the outbreak of World War II in 1939. In 1941, as Germany conquered new territory in eastern Europe, specialized paramilitary units called Einsatzgruppen were used to kill around two million Jews and "partisans", mostly in mass shootings. By the end of 1942, victims were being systematically moved by freight trains to specially built murder camps where, if they survived the journey, most were regularly murdered in gas chambers. The campaign of extermination continued until the end of World War II in Europe in
The Holocaust is the deadliest recognized genocide in human history. It lasted from January 30,1933 – May 8,1945 and would result in the l1 million deaths. The causes of the Holocaust begin at the end of World War One with what Germans referred to as “the stab in the back”. This was a myth that claimed the German Army did not loose World War One but was betrayed by the Jewish population who gave up land and supplies to the Allies. As this spread anti-Semitism or hate for Jewish people grew in Germany as people viewed the Jewish population as deceptive and traitorous.
After being named Chancellor, Hitler began what is known as the Holocaust. The Holocaust started on January 30, 1933 and lasted until May 8, 1945. The Holocaust was the mass murder of 6 million Jews (1.5 million of them being children). The Germans started burning the books that the Jews had written, removing Jews from their occupations and their schools, and taking their businesses and properties(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The Jews were forced from their houses to go to live in ghettos away from all society(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library).
This historical event affected millions of people till this day. Adolf Hitler impacted Germany by passing Nuremberg laws, murdering 11 million people, and setting up concentration camps. First of all, Hitler passed the Nuremberg laws in 1935 at the annual party rally. These laws institutionalized the racial theories associated with the Nazi groups. The first law was made to protect German honor, this law made it so that a Germans and Jewish people could
For instance, the German administrators implemented laws that castigated marriages between Jews and Arians. This measure was taken to prevent any mixture between the cultures and to show their superiority. Those who violated this law or were against it were arrested under preventive detention measures. Precisely, they posed a threat to the Nazi administration, and there was a need to eliminate their influence for the peace purposes. This initiative was rather selfish, and it greatly undermined peace within the region.
