Prior to the Holocaust, labels were made on the Jewish legally. The German government ratified the Nuremberg Laws, a series of laws released gradually, increasing with labels and discrimination each time. The gradual ramping of labels and discrimination nullified the blow and made it noticeable only to those enforcing them and the Jews being discriminated against. The laws show the progression of labels into discrimination by first broadening the identification of Jews as those practicing Judaism to “anyone… descended from at least three grandparents who were fully Jewish” (NSDAP 2.5.1). The laws continued by taking away “full political rights in accordance with the provision of the law” (NSDAP 1.2.3).
During the 1930’s and 40’s Nazi Germany was a dictatorship ruled by Adolf Hitler he was a cruel dictator who had a goal to eliminate all european jews this shows in “Law,Justice,and the Holocaust” where it says that he and The Nazis mainly targeted people of the Jewish faith, at the end of the war they successfully killed six million jewish men,women, and children. This event was known as the holocaust. Hitler was a very cruel and hated man by the people who weren’t being schooled by the Nazis.
Hitler led a regime of German people to conform against other people with different religions, ethnicities, and sexualities. Hitler was an idol for Germany and Jewish people were the scapegoats for Germany’s problems. Hitler convinced and manipulated millions of people to fight for his agenda. Hitler directed the minds of his followers to support a cause that killed millions of people which is now known as the Holocaust. Hitler was able to execute his plans for the Holocaust because of the aid from others which was demonstrated by Nazi leaders, the German military, and the Axis powers.
In Robin Lakoff’s “Hate Speech”, Lakoff claims that not everyone is able to understand hate speech because not everyone goes through it, or they don't find it a big deal because it doesn't happen to them. Someone might claim that they know that hate speech doesn't happen that often but, what is hate speech? Hate speech is to “promote violence” and it is “created by people who are a majority of the population; directed toward people who are a part of a minority population.” (bsu.edu). The First Amendment allows people to speak what they want, and express themselves. Hate speech destroys the First Amendment because it doesn't allow a person to express their free speech. According to Lakoff, people who don’t experience hate speech, don't think
At its core, Hitlerism ushered in an era of ethnic cleansing, and that was a scheduled event of his wartime agendas. When Germany declared war, military troops speedily went to round up and
Using hatred as a way to rally the German population to their cause, the Nazi Party was able to advance the elimination of Jews. The anger and hate of the Jews induced fear in others who were afraid for their own safety. Fear of the Jews themselves allowed a path to anger, which would lead to hatred and the suffering of others. Yoda’s quote from Star Wars, “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger.
In 1993 the beginning of the genocide of millions of Jewish people began otherwise known as the Holocaust. The Nazis plan to exterminate all Jewish people was referred to as the Final Solution. During this time period the Jewish people were discriminated against by being segregated, stripped of their identities, and being taken away from everything they own and love and forced into concentration camps.
The Holocaust was one of the most devastating times for all of the world. It strained the world’s economy and resources; death tolls were tremendously high and injuries were severe. This was one of the worst events in our world’s history. For the 12 years that Germany was ruled by the Nazi Party, a central belief was that there existed in society, certain people who were dangerous and needed to be eliminated for German society to flourish and survive (Impact of the Holocaust).
Many Germans, during WWII had started to take on the ideology of Hitler – that Jewish citizens in Germany were the cause of their poverty and misfortune. Of course, many knew that this was merely a form of scapegoating, and although they disagreed with the majority of Germany’s citizens, many would not speak up for fear of isolation (Boone,
Hitler began to erase the history of a failed Germany and instilled a new one, one where Germany could've won the Great War and began to teach a racial science where the Aryans were the master race. Even going as far as insinuating Jesus as an Aryan man and not of Jewish descent, he repressed religion such as the Catholic Church and the Lutheran Church. In public schools religious instruction held back and omitted the Jewish origin
Hitler also changed the religious culture in many parts of Europe. One of Hitler’s main goals while in office was to eliminate the jewish and any other non-aryan people. In the process, Hitler made The Nuremberg Laws. Adolf Hitler, “implemented these laws to ostracize, discriminate and expel Jews from German society” (3) Diverse culture was rejected. Physically, the people of Germany, mostly jews, were affected because of Hitler trying to make the population one master race.
The rise of the Nazi Party from 1933-1945 had a profound impact on the lives of many people throughout Europe. Innocent people including over a million children suffered at the hands of the Nazis. The Nazis slowly changed life politically, economically, and socially for many people. The rise of the Nazi party changed people in many ways especially the Jews. One of the ways were politically, The Jews weren’t able to have a citizenship and not were able to vote.
The Nazis were oblivious about the devastation they caused as they were influenced by one of the most perilous motives: power, and the lack thereof. During the 1930s, the German citizens felt restricted by their circumstances as the country was in a bleak situation. Millions of citizens were affected by “the worldwide economic depression [which] provoked hyperinflation, social unrest and mass unemployment.” Hitler presented his party, the Nationalist Socialist German Workers’ Party or more commonly known as Nazi Party, as the solution to their problems. It is deeply ingrained into human nature that when one is hopeless, one tends to believe whoever offers the slightest amount of hope.
Hitler’s speeches convinced people that they were the main cause of all the problems happening in their country. He then convinced everyone through powerful speeches that only Germans should be alive because they were the “perfect race” according
Propaganda, terror and repression played a significant role in the Nazi regime. Hitler used each to supplement and complement each other with the main focus to make Hitler appear a strong, powerful and all-knowing man who was in favour of the Nazi vision of the ‘national community’. This all impacted the German people by preserving support for Nazism and ensuring that the community that didn 't agree with the Nazi regime would not be heard by any
