Because of this event, the word genocide was created – the organized violence against specific groups of the society committed in order to destroy these groups by murdering them (What). The process of banishing and murdering millions of people was systematic and took years. These people were taken to the ghettos by force, living them no chance to do something, but be isolated (The Holocaust). The Final Solution came when in June 1941 the Germans attacked the Soviet Union (The Holocaust). Four command groups aimed to gather all Jews from different cities for them to be shot with automatic weapons and by the end of 1942 the number of murdered Jewish people because of the command groups went up to 1.3 million (The Holocaust).
The two main leading parties were the SA and the SS. The SA’s were formerly called Stormtroopers and the SS were like Hitler’s personal bodyguards (Steele 6). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. The Ghettos were worn and run down buildings all sectioned off so that the Jews inside did not make outside contact with the rest of the population. The ghettos were usually comprised of old stores and apartments, but they were only meant for temporary purposes.
The Holocaust occurred in Europe in the early 1940’s (Altman 1). Constructed by Adolf Hitler, Germany’s first and only Führer, the Holocaust is a horrible event (Introduction). Jewish people were treated in cruel and brutal ways. Over six million died in concentration camps, ghettos, or death marches (Rice 11). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors.
Moreover, the Red Guard had little to no mercy, incredibly relentless in their killing, and created labor camps where hundreds of thousands of innocent middle class citizens died (Novikova). The Bolsheviks
During World War 2, the most evident traits of totalitarianism were the Nazi’s military terror that led to the Warsaw ghetto, Hitler’s persecution of the Jews that resulted in death camps like Auschwitz, and Stalin’s control of individuals that caused famine across millions. Hitler and the Nazis used military terror in World War 2 to force Jews into the Warsaw Ghetto, which resulted in starvation and death. Military terror was a tactic used by rulers to gain obedience through violence. Many times leaders have a special police force to protect the government's interests and scare the people into abiding by their rules. In Germany, Hitler used military terror to enforce his leadership with the help from the Nazi party.
Despite Savile’s reputation as a ‘sex pest’, he lived on the hospital site and was given unrestricted access to the grounds. Investigations into the abuse found that he would abuse patients who were paralyzed from the neck down. He also raped an 8-year-old girl on 10 different occasions, while she visited the hospital. 3) Live Aid Money donated to the Live Aid charity in 1985 was used to help fund a brutal resettlement program in Ethiopia, which killed up to 100,000 people. The Live Aid campaign raised more than $100 million to fight famine in Ethiopia.
There was a stampede. Dozens of starving men fought desperately over a few crumbs. The worker watched the spectacle with great interest.” (Wiesel pg 100) Humans eventually realized how destructive we can become. The millions of people who died, died not having their basic civil rights. The Germans made sure to strip the Jews of their entire identity to embarrass them, then kill them.
Hitler devised a long systematic plan that went on to wipe out 6 million European Jews, two-thirds of the Jewish population (Strahinich 7). Nations across the world saw this evil and banded together to fight against Germany and their Nazi party, with the goal to liberate the Holocaust prisoners and bring an end to Hitler’s cruel ways (Byers Overview 101). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. Jews were not treated the same as other German citizins by the Nazi party. This act of hatred or maybe even racism was called Anti-Semitism.
Machiavelli’s idea of punishments was; punish hard, fast and all at once. This means that a leader must have no mercy and punish hard to keep their people in line. This philosophy applies quite a lot to Hitler, for example, Kristallnacht (the night of broken glass). On the night of November 9, 1938, violence and hatred against Jews broke out across the German Reich and thousands of Jews were captured and killed. The morning after the massacres, 30,000 German Jewish men were arrested for the "crime" of being Jewish and sent to concentration camps, which was a harsh punishment.
Horrors of The Holocaust The memoir Night by Elie Wiesel is one of the many novels written by him and others about the true cruelty of the Nazis. The memoir shows the abominable actions of the Nazi perpetrators; for example, “Faster, you swine, you filthy sons of bitches!”(Wiesel 91). This quote shows the feelings of the Nazis and how they brutally treated the Jews and other races. Swine, a term for pigs, commonly used throughout the Nazi camps; this is not the first time that the Kapos and other Nazi soldiers have called the Jews pigs or dogs. This quote shows the inhumane treatment of the people sentenced to the concentration camps during World War II where six million Jews die in various ways.
