Just as Nazi Germany blamed the Jews, handicapped, gays, and other minorities for the tragedies that the country were trying so desperately to overcome; the Oceania government used whichever society, Eastasia or Eurasia, they felt like. Constantly switching between the two and feeding Oceanias inhabitants lies about the others. Once this “groupthink” (Psychological Aspects Behind the Causes of the Holocaust) is widely tolerated something “can go from being wrong or weird to acceptable and normal very quickly” (Psychological Aspects Behind the Causes of the Holocaust) . There is a domino effect and people begin to fall in line so to speak. It is easier to agree with what seems to be the majority than it is to disagree.
The Nazis blamed the Jews for many of the problems going on in Germany at the time and portrayed anti-semitic beliefs. They portrayed those beliefs with propaganda with the Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda which was established by Hitler as soon as he came into power and anointed Joseph Goebbels to be the head of it. After anti-semitism successfully divided the jews from the non-jews in Germany, a genocide of jews started and made the Jews suffer. The Jewish Holocaust was started by Adolf Hitler who used anti-semitism and propaganda to start a genocide of Jews. We must remember the Jewish Holocaust so we can be able to prevent future genocides that may happen.
The first evidence that supports this, is “These racist Nazi laws were among the first of many that led to the Holocaust.” The reason to use racist, is that they were stereotyping the whole group of Jews and “non- Aryan” races in germany as they say they are the cause of everything like the defeat in WW1. This is objective as it says facts are true and without opinion something would be all agreed upon that this would be racist. The second evidence is “The first was made on November 14, 1935. It defined a Jew as a person with at least one Jewish grandparent. It said that a Jew cannot be a citizen of Germany, vote or serve as a government official.” This type evidence supports that this is an objective one as objective use facts,measurable,and observable.
Hitler also changed the jewish religion by killing jews and making them look bad and also causing them to switch religions by causing fear into them. Hitler also changed how Germans and Swastikas are looked at because of all of WWII and Killing jews in many countries that were in Nazi or German control. Adolf Hitler made steps to change Germany and here are some ways. Why did Adolf Hitler make Jewish people non-citizens? The reason why he did not
Marian said “The decision for genocide was, therefore, the result of a failure of Nazi policy goals, rather than the result of Hitler’s desire to create a racial utopia” ( 87). Hitler’s views stem off an idea of a perfect race. The world can only include this Aryan race therefore Hitler believed he has to kill everyone who does not fit the qualities of the perfect race. Mayes explained “Hitler’s quest for global hegemony would likely make it impossible to expel the Jews beyond German living space, and thus a massacre was inevitable under any circumstances” (87). It was Hitler’s goal to kill all of the Jews.
The Overwhelming Importance of The Nuremburg Trials "It was the virtue of the Nuremberg trial that it was conceived in hatred of war, and nurtured by those starved of peace. Of course, the trial was botched and imperfect…it had to deal with new crimes for which there was no provision in national law or international law." (Rebecca West). The trials were full of controversy and an overwhelming hope for justice which was the motive behind everything. The creation of the first concentration camp sparked the anger amongst the Allied nations leading to an increase of hostility.
Germany needed a scapegoat for all the struggles they were facing and Hitler used stereotypes to give the German people a scapegoat. Ignorance clouded the judgment of the German people. Ultimately the Jews would pay the price while the world was oblivious of the crimes against humanity which the Nazis committed. Elie Wiesel is stuck in dark times for people of his ethnicity. Nazis felt that the Jewish people were inferior.
Its energetic imagery and burning tone make it a remarkable abrasion of the World War I and it has discovered its way into both literature and history courses as a paragon of textual representation of the horrors of the combat zone. Concerning invocation and request the message of reality, Owens straightforwardly hits the romantic illusion of war and attacks the warmongers. As his contends, war itself is just a vain
The Holocaust is a shining example of Anti-Semitism at its best and it was no secret that the Nazis tried to wipe out the Jews from Europe but the question is why did the Nazis persecute the Jews and how did they try to do it.This essay will show how the momentum, from a negative idea about a group of people to a genocide resulting in the murder of 6 million Jews, is carried from the beginning of the 19th Century, with pseudo-scientific racial theories, throught the 20th century in the forms of applied social darwinism and eugenics(the display of the T4 programme), Nazi ideas regarding the Jews and how discrimination increased in the form of the Nuremberg Laws , Kristallnacht, and last but not least, The Final Solution. Spanning throughout the 19th century, racial theories were seen. Pseudo-Scientific theories such as Craniometry,where the size of one’s skull determines one’s characteristics or could justifies one’s race( this theory was used first by Peter Camper and then Samuel Morton), Karl Vogt’s theory of the Negro race being related to apes and of how Caucasian race is a separate species to the Negro race, Arthur de Gobineau’s theory of how miscegenation(mixing or interbreeding of different races) would lead to the fall of civilisation. But no theories where as popular with the Nazis as Hebert Spencer’s Social Darwinism theory and Sir Francis Galton’s Eugenics theory. Social Darwinism is defined as “..study of human society, specifically a theory in sociology that
She left a legacy for her amazing way with words and through her honest encounter with hiding and the “death camps” spread throughout Germany. Thanks to the World War II and the Holocaust, millions of Jews suffered horrific fates. Hitler, the German leader who led the Nazi, was the source of all this Jewish racial mistreatment. He believed that Jews were the cause for all of Germany’s problems and promised a “golden future” if all the Jews were eradicated from the world. This “golden future” was the cause of a bigger Nazi because Germans did not want problems in their country.
