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.
Because of this, Hitler’s goal was to cleanse Germany of any backstabbing Jews (Growing Fascism in Germany Notes, pg 1). Hitler became impatient while waiting for the Jews to die in the ghettos so he held a conference in Wannsee on January 20, 1942 to decide the next step for purifying Germany. Hitler, along with 15 other scholars, decided to deport all Jews to extermination camps and kill the majority of them in gas chambers. Hitler prohibited the Jews from fleeing the country so he was able to purge the entire population. One of the largest death camps in Germany, Auschwitz, was a result of the Wannsee Conference.
“They also left a bitter legacy of religious hatred behind them.” This reputation shows them to be gruesome knights. The Crusaders also “-sometimes turn their fury to Jews…” This is important because it supports the fact that they lost attention. They fought for their religion, but was blinded by fury. Their fury turned into victims that shouldn’t be abused. Like Document one said, they attacked Jews.
“ You can 't throw…? Something they branded you with…? That they made you wear so they could spit on you?” (Hackett, 111). This clearly shows that Peter is angry about having to wear the star of David, he absolutely despises the Nazis because they branded him with something so others could spit on him and make fun of him just because of his culture and way of life. The Nazis also affected others way of life in the annex.
In WWII Germany, Hitler reigned over his citizens as if they were living embodiments of garbage. In The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Nazi Germany is seen through the eyes of Death, telling the story of a little girl named Liesel Meminger. With her life full of tragedy, Death encounters her and observes her actions often. This novel’s unique style stands out from the rest, constantly throwing flashbacks, flashforwards, and even direct spoilers at the reader. This forces the audience to be on edge for the characters, knowing their lives will not last long.
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.
However, some may say that writing and keeping records may have never seen the light of day. If we didn’t have written records then it would make it harder for them to believe and understand what these people had to go through. Hitler's ultimate goal was to get rid of all jews, as you can see he didn't reach his goal.And a big part of that is because of passively active
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
That shows how strict the Nazis were on the Jews and how they put the fear of death in them to intimidate them. This is also a technique to keep them in the camps so that they would be too scared to even try to leave. The Nazis believed that they were the dominant race and that they needed to rid the world of any other race or a lesser race according to them. The way they planned on riding the world of these races is by fire or by toxic gasses. And that breaks article three which states “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and
They did this because they saw them as a problem to Germany. I am researching about concentration camps. The two things that I am writing about is why concentration camps were established, and what the Nazis did to the inmates in concentration camps. The first concentration camps were set up as detention centres to stop any who opposed the Nazis. “The first concentration camps were made to detain people without trial, usually under harsh conditions.” (www.theholocaustexplained.org) The Nazis did this because they discriminate and hate the Jews.
During the Holocaust, certain events followed that builds up the suspense that affected the Jews. For example, the Night of the Broken Glass is an example of the beginning of the extermination of the Jews along with their homes and valuables raided by the Nazi’s. As Hitler came into presidency, he took away Jewish rights called the Nuremberg laws that made the Jews both powerless and vulnerable to society. To follow along that, when Hitler was still running for president, his strategy involved helping Germany through its problems through hope that manipulated others as if it was to good to be true. As the Holocaust heavily affected the Jews, a political power had to come into place that followed along taking away Jewish
when the Nazis burned the books to restrict free speech and open communication of ideas, they later turned to burning human corpses like the jews during the Holocaust. so to restrict human liberty in one season becomes a tool where it can lead to much graver violations of humanity in another. it all has to start somewhere, so burning books is a very dangerous precedent.
In the early 1940s, Adolf Hitler told Germany the single story of his opinions of the Jewish race. His single story led Germany to blame Jews, persecute Jews, and kill Jews. You would think the nation would stand against wrongdoings, but most were brainwashed by Hitler’s perspective, and the rest, cowards. Germany was manipulated to think a certain way, without caring to hear what the Jews had to say, and ultimately reacted in a harmful way to the Jews. You may ask, why is this important?
