Persecution is the elimination of a certain religious, ethnic, or political group to strengthen the government's power. Often times the government uses the tactic of scapegoating, or blaming a group for the country's flaws, to achieve this (Key Traits of Totalitarianism Handout). Hitler blamed the Jewish people for Germany’s loss in World War 1. The Jews were used as scapegoats to reduce the humiliation of the Germans for losing the war. Because of this, Hitler’s goal was to cleanse Germany of any backstabbing Jews (Growing Fascism in Germany Notes, pg 1).
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. This, arguably vulnerable, psychological concept coded into humans is taken advantage of by these corrupt governments to plant ideas within massive numbers of people.
She left a legacy by being the voice of the Holocaust. In the time of Anne Frank, the Nazis were starting their rise to power, which caused problems all around the globe. Before the war started, discrimination against Jewish citizens in Germany was strong.

Although Jewish life before the Holocaust was peaceful at first, discrimination erupted which promoted anti- semitism, enacted laws, and forced Jews into ghettos. In the 1800s before the Holocaust, discrimination against Jews started to become a problem in the country of Germany. The Germans began to isolate the Jewish people because of their race rather and religious
Many people were forced to work under Nazis’ commands. He believed that Germany would win World War II if he could establish dictatorship and finish the Jews. Hitler was very harsh and rude towards his state. He totally eliminated opposition parties and forced people to obey Nazis’ commands. Racism was at its peak.
The National Socialism is inspired by the fascism ideology that created in Italy with the leadership of Benito Mussolini. The Nazism consisted of a high level of racism, trying to create the ultimate White Aryan race. This race of Germans was superior to all other races and White Aryan race’s place was very important to mankind and the danger for this race was considered Jews. According to Nazism ideology every institution and systems in the world that belonged to capitalism was created and led by Jews, and these Jews were a parasite to every other nation especially to the Aryan race.
The second World War began in September in 1939.Germany conquered Poland,Denmark,Norway,Belgium and France. Hitter thought of attacking the Soviet Union ,in order to exterminate Communism and to expand the German empire. Hilter 's ideology consisted of anti_Semitic,Volkish,Social Darwinist and anti_Marxist ideas.

Many of the German Jews fought the battle. The Germans were so humiliated and Hitler joined the He then joined the National Socialist workers party (Nazi party), which was for a group of young men.

The events that took place in WW2. Where Adolf Hitler subjugates Germany and sets laws that targeted Jews based on their religion. They blame Jews that they were the cause of all the problems for an example the loss of WW1. These laws segregated them from others like they are trash and things that aren’t meant to live. The type of articles that explains these things have two sides objective and subjective.
Even though Hitler was gone, there were still many anti-Semitic people living in Europe. Therefore, special camps were established for Jews to keep them safe from any danger that might still be out there. In conclusion, the Holocaust left millions of people dead. Two out of every three Jews were killed during this horrible time because Adolf Hitler blamed them for all the economic problems in Germany.
Nazis came to rise after Adolf Hitler took control of Germany in early 1933. They started to invade other countries around them and succeeded in occupying almost all of Europe. Many people didn’t agree with the methods the Nazis used and therefore, started to rebel. To stop these rebels or the so-called “enemies of the state”, Nazis had started to construct concentration camps. According to The Holocaust Explained, “In Nazi Germany after 1933, and across Nazi controlled Europe, between 1938 and 1945, concentration camps became a major way in which Nazi imposed their control (Holocaust Explained, 1)”.

He blamed all the world’s problems on the Jews, and explained how they needed to be exterminated in his speech about International Jewry. During his speech, the crowd loved what he had to say, and they too believed that Jews were a menace to society. Hitler was able to persuade them that killing them would do the world a favor, which established an ethnic tension (Doc I). This shows how genocide is also a result from rivalries between different groups of people.
The only pro of this was proving that there actually was persecution going on through the government in the Sudan. These oppressions and persecutions going on are just adding more fuel to the fire. Humanity is capable of carrying out these cruelties by genocide leaders being mentally ill, having no social order, and specific groups being oppressed. Hitler’s psychological disorders worsened the violence of the Holocaust. Rwanda being without a leader led the country to absolute madness.
As mention earlier, these Anti-Asian laws reflect on violence and discrimination that Asian American still currently face. For instance, majority of Asian still face stereotype at the public places. The Asians are being label as hard workers, exotic, and wild. To further illustrate, increasing number of South Asians American experience “stereotyping, discrimination, and racial profiling” (45) after 9/11. This is due to the remembrance of Middle Easterners.
