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.
Weinberg does agree that Hitler would of course preferred to avoid a conflict with Western powers, but he realized that this was something he would inevitability have to face. Hitler’s Chief German biographer, Joachim Fest, argues that Hitler’s growing sense of mortality was what convinced him that it was time to increase aggression. Tooze that not much has changed regarding the positions on this topic since the 1980’s, but offers the probability of some alterations as a result of new archival evidence. This evidence, Tooze argues, forces historians to further explore Hitler’s war against the his Jewish enemies who he blamed for Germany’s economic crisis. He explains that Hitler viewed Germany's problem through the lens of his racial ideology and this made war inevitable for him.
As defined by dictionary.com, scapegoatism is “the act or practice of assigning blame or failure to another, as to deflect attention or responsibility away from oneself.” The German extremists blamed the Jews for the problems in their country such as hyperinflation caused by the German government printing an excess of money, not by Jewish bankers. This would lead to the Holocaust. While scapegoating was
Hitler and the Nazis believed that the Aryan people and Germany was destined to rule the world. They did not believe that Jews could be Germans. They also thought that communism was a Jewish invention, that was another reason why he hated the 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.”
David’s claim that the Holocaust occurred because the Germans became unusually cruel is false based on the fundamental attribution error and Milgram’s experiments. The fundamental attribution error is the tendency to attribute other people’s behavior to internal factors, instead of accounting for situational factors. David committed this error when stating that Germans, as a whole, were “sadistic people with abnormal and twisted personalities”. David did not account for the immense pressure that the German public felt from Hitler during World War II. Although many atrocities were being committed, the Germans feared for their lives if they stood up for the Jews and disobeyed Hitler’s rule.
Why was Albert Speer named the ‘Good Nazi’ after the Nuremberg Trials, denying all knowledge of the ‘Final Solution’, but accepted responsibility for actions of the regime? His true lying ability is expressed in these word “of all the dreadful things, I knew nothing”. There were many events that express Speer’s involvement in Anti-Semitic movements, and his ability to liar towards his participation in any of it: 1. Architect - ‘Germania’ strengthened the relationship between Speer and Hitler – a project involving the removal of thousands of Jews into camps.
The Nazis solution to the Versailles Treaty was to reject it. They gained support from Germans by the use of their propaganda by emphasizing the already commonly held fear that if it wasn’t for the Left and their supporters the Communists who overthrow Emperor William II they would have not have lost the Great War. The Nazis also placed blame on the Jewish community with source eight’s imagery of the String-Puller either being Jewish our possibly financing those that sought to control the German people it would only push German fear even further which didn’t really need prodding due to the Great Depression. With Hitler leading the Nazi party and projecting such determination and conviction promising to face the problems that face the German people by reaching out or appealing to the small shopkeepers, craftsman, tradesman essentially the middle class citizen’s men and women as found it source nine and fourteen. In source seven having a Nazi meeting in a heavily communist quarter of Berlin was a show of force and strength along with a willingness to use that force as a propaganda tool advertising that they wouldn’t be intimidated by the communist party and would take the confrontation to them.
Adolf Hitler is one of the most known names from our history. Hitler can very well be considered the epitome of all evil. One may agree with this theory, but was he born to be cruel and inconsiderate for no reason, to blame and take the life of hundreds if not thousands of innocent Jews? Now if one puts that in perspective, is he/she born evil or are you form to be cruel. Hitler was obviously not born evil, at one point it was a young man lost to find his path.
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.”
“A major priority of the Nazi Party was to eliminate racially inferior groups in Germany and across Europe. Discuss how and why they did this” The Nazi part prosecuted many racial and social groups during their reign from 1933-1945. The Nazi party followed their beliefs that there was a superior race called the Aryan race and used Charles Darwin’s theory of Social Darwinism to prosecute these groups. In this essay I will discuss the prosecution of the Jewish people, the homosexuals and the gypsies (Roma) and how and why they did this.
Adolf Hitler could possibly be the worst politician of all time after causing the death of millions of innocent people. Before the Holocaust Jews had the right to Religion, the right to own their own businesses, and have jobs. The only things they had to follow were the regulations of the law in Germany at that time, just like any other human being. But, after Hitler came into power things started to change drastically.
Soon after Hitler became dictator of Germany, the “Gestapo, a German secret police force, as created…” (Gestapo). Communism was thought to be trying to take over Nazism and it was Hitler’s main goal to eliminate his political enemies. “The Gestapo was created to help solidify control by identifying and arresting anti-Nazis agents in Germany” (Gestapo). Hitler appointed another one of his senior Nazi official as head of the Gestapo. “Hermann Göring was appointed director of the German Gestapo” (Gestapo).
