Race, Hatred, and Violence The Holocaust was a devastating act that showed what being racist and hateful is all about. The Nazis and German authorities were the main reason for the killings of about six million Jews. They murdered homosexuals, Roman Gypsies, twins, the mentally ill or physically disabled, Jews, political opponents, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and priests. They wanted a perfect a race so they decided the people who weren’t perfect had to suffer. They didn’t care about the fact that nobody is perfect.
As a result, these are facts that caused this problems. First, in Nov. 1938, Kristallnacht created a landmark in Jewish torture. penalty for the murder of a German embassy worker in Paris by a German-born Jewish students, Jews-owned homes and jobs were destroyed. After that event, the German government obliterate Jews from the sector and Jewish kids were expelled from schools. Additionally, the whole Jewish community was fined one billions dollars to pay for the damage window, of the Kristallnacht.
As Goebbels worked hard on the propaganda campaign, the Jews found themselves facing a huge surge of hated towards them by the public. Hitler can be held responsible for the burning of Jewish businesses, creating Jewish ghettos and distributed ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ a book which claimed that the Jews were trying to takeover the world. Propaganda at the hands of the Nazi’s can be said to have played a huge role in the responsibility for the Holocaust. The promotion of anti-Semitic beliefs which got the majority of the public on the Nazi’s side meant that ordinary people were seeing that the extermination of the Jews was taking place and either didn’t do anything about it or helped play a role. This can be because of fear, of what would happen to them if they either rebelled or didn’t contribute.
History of anti-Semitism Siyoon Lee Anthony Mulson 8S+ English 23 March 2016 Siyoon Lee Anthony Mulson 8S+ English 11 March 2016 History of Anti-Semitism: Where great hatred of Jews originated from The Holocaust is a shameful history that mankind should not repeat once more. Approximately 6 million Jews, 10 thousand homosexuals, 50 thousand Gypsies, and besides, other social minority groups were slaughtered due to Hitler 's ethnic cleansing policy. I will focus on the genocide of Jews in this writing. Over 50 percent of the victims of the Holocaust were Jews. Can only Hitler 's personal hatred lead to the massive murder of 6 million Jews?
(1) The Holocaust was a genocide in which the races considered inferior by the Germans - such as (but not limited to) the gypsies, the mentally disabled, homosexuals, and black people- were atrociously mass-murdered and tortured, nonetheless the Jewish Community was the most persecuted and affected to a larger scale race. The Holocaust was a major historical event which took place throughout (and before) World War II (between 1933 and 1945) when Hitler was the leader of the fascist party in Germany, carrying out a dictatorship. It is estimated that the Holocaust viciously ended 11 million lives, for which the German Nazy Party was responible. The largest group of victims were Jewish (Aprox. 6 million) It is said that 2 European Jews were killed
Among the other countries, Germany was certainly not the only one to use propaganda against the unwanted. Hitler’s hatred for the Jews influenced other countries to see propaganda. Hitler blamed the Jewish people for their loss of World War I, also for prolonging the war to gain wealth, and using the constitutional democracy to weaken the politics of the nation; and through the use of propaganda , he used the Jews as a scapegoat or as a group of people for germany's defeat in World War one. Hitler using propaganda convinced thousands of people that is was ok to kill countless Jews and many others.

In that time, during World War two, death was the biggest risk for Jews. The Natizs goal was to find all of the Jews and kill them, to end a race. They believed that the Jews were the cause of everything that has happened to them. Death was always a risk back then if you were a Jew. Not only was it death to Jews, but death to anyone who might’ve hidden or helped them.
There was a horrific event that lasted twelve years. This event was fueled by hate for an entire group of people. For twelve long years six million Jewish men, women, and children were hunted down and killed. This event is known as the Holocaust and to prevent something as horrific as this we must research and study the Holocaust. The mass murder of over six million people was ordered by a man known as Hitler.
All About the Nuremberg Laws Over 6 million Jews were killed and the Nuremberg Laws was one of the many reasons. The Nuremberg Laws were against the Jews. The laws discriminated and tried to remove them all. The Nuremberg Laws were a big part in the holocaust and one of the main reasons for millions of people losing their lives. The Nazi’s passed the Nuremberg Laws in order to dehumanize and terrorize the Jewish people.
The Gypsies, most like the Jews, were moved by Nazis to unusual areas, and almost the entire race of Gypsies in Eastern Europe was wiped out. Hitler considered the Jehovah’s Witnesses to be a threat because from the very beginning, this strong group of Christians believed in no other God than Jehovah (“The Holocaust: Non-Jewish Victims” 2).
