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)
In 1933, Adolf Hitler set out that the world would be a better place if there was no Jews. (Military Leader, Dictator:) He made it seem like the Jews were seen as a threat towards the German race. All of this started when the German community was defeated in WW1, and Hitler blamed the Jews. ( Military Leader, Dictator:) The Germans believed it, so Hitler started prisoning the Jews one by one, including children. Many innocent people were killed all because of Hitler’s
When Hitler came to power in 1933, there was an immediate hatred against Jews. After businesses were shut down and synagogues were burned to ashes, Jews were no longer allowed to leave their homes. The spread of Anti-Semitism was on the rise all over Europe, especially in Germany, Austria, and Poland. Is was evident
In the book night by Elie Wiesel portrays religion by showing people persecuted for their religion. And showing people relying on their faith and people losing their faith. They were relying on their faith to get them through this event. Some people started to lose their faith and started to worry about their life. People started to die off in the railroad car. Then the women started seeing flames and yelling. Then the people started beating her up and hitting her as hard as they could. Then they arrived at the camp and some were shot some were not shot. Some were taken to the gas chambers and killed. Some were sent to a ditch with fire in it to burn to death. And some people had to work on the camp and some had to dig ditches some had to work to be free. Then they had to work in the cold hard snow. They barely had

It’s not a question that many historians try and explain the motives behind perpetrator actions in violent events. History has recurred throughout time, especially in the 20th c. when it comes to genocide, where massive groups are involved in mobilizing the same type of destruction. Why then, is it so easy for many ordinary people to commit such horrible violence? This is the question that both James Waller and Daniel Goldhagen try to answer in their books about the perpetrators in the Holocaust. Waller provides a general model, which can be applied to genocide and mass killing events, that explains the sequence of events which lead an ordinary person to perpetrate evil. Goldhagen, analyzes the history of anti-Semitism in Germany and Europe,
Stephen Eric Bronner analyzes how the Jewish Zionist movement shape the Protocols and reflect the ideologies that are challenged between the two during the rise of the anti-Semite movement. He argues the ideas in this pamphlet are a complete forgery, yet they “helped shape the mass movements, revolutions, and wars of the twentieth century.” (4) Chapter three of his book, Rumor About the Jews, attempts to explain the effort the Protocols make against the modernity linked to political anti-Semitism supposedly taking place at the hands of Jews and their reactions to it. Antisemitic ideology, Bronner states, in contrast to the Judeophobia of earlier times, “presupposed a denial of the Jew both as a person and as a Jew.” (59) This laid the foundation
Good evening America! I come to you with great concern about the Jewish people begin tortured and killed every second of the day by the German Nazis. Having to think about this situation just makes me want to cry , because they are preoccupied the Great Depression and its consequences for the United States and the world.

However life is just going to play its role you can come and go . You maybe wondering what are you talking about President Roosevelt, well i’m saying that in life you are not going to have everything
The Holocaust dates back in 1933 to 1945 and is notoriously known for its mass killing and persecution of six million Jews. Jews were considered as an inferior race to the racially superior Germans, as Jews were blamed for Germany’s problems of war debt. This racial discrimination further resulted in the horrendous genocide of Jewish citizens. While this killing and capturing of Jews seemed nearly impossible to avoid, audacious individuals that were not Jewish risked their lives to help rescue seized Jews, despite the severe punishments of doing so. These heroic men and women are referred to as righteous gentiles.
The Nazi book burning targeted books that did not agree or fit to the ideologies of the Nazi’s, but, neither did the Jews and both were sought to be destroyed. In The Book Thief the books represent the Jewish people and the Nazi’s were really trying to destroy them. “To their left, flames and burning books were cheered like heroes.”(113) The burning books, just like Jews were cheered on for their demise. Germany was convinced that the books and Jews were evil and unsuitable for the world so they wanted them to cease to exist. “Of course, everyone knew about the Jews, as they were the main offender in regard to violating the German ideal.” (111). During the war, the Jews were hated so much because they were not the same as everyone who fit
On January 30, 1933, darkness roamed all over in Germany. The world’s massive genocide occurred: the Holocaust. The Holocaust, led by the great Nazi party, frightened the sight of many people. Although, many events contributed towards the Holocaust, the Nazis prejudice ways, powerful government, and persuasive mouths lead to the Holocaust because persuasion by the powerful Nazi regime created enmity in Germany, towards the people that the Nazis disregarded.
In the article “Ten Responses to Jewish Lackeys”, Kurt Hilmar Eitzen speaks about Nazis’ attempts to convince Jewish Lackeys that Jews are bad. Unlike other articles “Ten Responses to Jewish Lackeys” is structured into 10 arguments by which quotations are from Jewish lackey’s perspective; then gives counterarguments. For instance, one argument Jewish lackey’s make is that Nazis are hypocrites as they go against their own principle of not intervening with religion by bothering the Jewish religion. Eitzen states that “From this first lie that Jewry is a religion, not a race, further lies inevitably follow”(Eitzen). Therefore, Eitzen is implying that Jewish religion is just a belief taught. In connection with the thesis, Eitzen is saying
Judaism, one of the world’s oldest and most loathed religions in the world has stood the test of time with innumerable counts of persecutions, however it continues to exist today. The statement Judaism has lasted despite centuries of persecution speaks for its undeniable character, is supported immensely. The history of Jews, mark them as a unique group not only because of their depth of suffering but their will to survive. The religion has come a long way and is one of the most followed religions in the world today.
Since the September 11th, 2001, the nation as well as the world has changed drastically. The curtain blocking the first world from the things going on in the Middle-East has risen. Stereotypes have been created and are often enacted against the innocent and fellow neighbors. But this is not the only instance of labels; labels have been placed on just about everything and often seem hurtful. Of course, these labels have helped in minute ways by preventing a small percentage of attacks and establishing a mental safeguard. But how do labels lead to discrimination? Although labeling appears to help in a post 9/11 America, the Holocaust shows labeling leading to discrimination and ultimately violence, which can be solved by promoting awareness of
The Nazi party normalized antisemitism and hate speech. That created ethical issues and dilemmas for the German community. Moral dilemmas of this nature are destructive as they can change someone’s life for the worst. Enabling hate speech and other forms of abhorrence made killing innocent people acceptable. Hitler implemented harsh policies that led to World War II and the mass murders of Jews. Jews and other groups that were considered a “threat to the German race” to the Nazi party were forced to hide from the worlds eyes.
