In retaliation to Jews for killing a German policeman in self defense on July 31, 1940 the nazis carried out a public mass execution(“Holocaust”). This day was later named “Bloody Wednesday”. They were tortured by anxiety, were insecure of the present, torn between hope and despair, and felt helpless. There were many people who were persecuted during the Holocaust that weren’t Jewish: spouses of Jews, Roma Gypsies, resisters, priests and pastor, Jehovah Witnesses, political enemies, homosexuals, the disabled, and African-German descent. Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
A cold war between the United Stated and the Soviet Union began in the result of the War. Wars would follow this one called “surrogate wars.” World War II lasted for 12 years. Hitler had built countless camps where 11 million people were murdered. 6 million of those were Jews.
The Holocaust was a persecution and eventual mass murder of Jews during the Nazi regime in the World War II. An estimate of six million Jews were killed, all because of their religion and beliefs. The Nazi thought they were the superior race, and Jews were “inferior” as well as a danger to the ‘perfect’ German community. Gradually, the German government was filled with people who believed that Jews needed to be purged. They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes.
During the Holocaust millions of people were killed by the Nazis because they were not the ideal race. The Nuremberg Trials were held in Nuremberg, Germany. The judges of the trials were from Great Britain, the Soviet Union, the United States, and France. These trials were held to bring justice to all the lives lost during World War two. After the Holocaust, the Nuremberg Trials were held to bring justice to Nazi officials, Industrialists, but failed to punish those who escaped.
The night of the long knives (often called operation hummingbird) was carried out swiftly and harshly to “punish” the politicians for being conservative anti-Nazi. A last definite point is that Hitler used gaseous euthanasia to quickly and cheaply execute the Jews he held in his concentration camps. People were put into the gassing chambers and then killed with carbon monoxide. An estimated 120,000 people were killed (punished) through the Nazi "Euthanasia" engagements. All these points truly prove the fact that Hitler did follow the political philosophies of Machiavelli in this
The first ghetto in Poland was named Warsaw. This was one of the largest ghettos and held four hundred thousand Jews. In 1941, German soldiers were commanded to destroy most of the ghettos because it was part of Hitler’s plan to seize the Jews population. The soldiers would shoot and burn the ghettos to the ground. The last ghetto was destroyed in 1944 and was named Lodz (Ghettos).
The Holocaust had Adolf Hitler attempting to wipe out every single Jew on the face of the Earth. As a matter of fact, he also targeted the Polish people, and homosexuals. People of these races plus more, were sent to horrific concentration camps and brutally worked until they were incapable of doing so. This all happened because Hitler was intolerant toward the Jews, Polish, and homosexuals. Another example of intolerance is back in the 1960s with the Ku Klux Klan.
“The reaction pattern of the Jews is characterized by almost complete lack of resistance.” Discuss with reference to the Jewish response to the Holocaust. During the period 1933 to 1945 Adolf Hitler, the fascist leader of German led the destruction of over Six Million Jews. The Nazi racial policy and the racial segregation became the justification for the suppression and persecution of all non-Aryans and all Jews.
The paradox of being half ugly is shown all throughout Hitler 's actions. In WWII the entire Jewish population was the target for Hitler and his Nazis party. This led to millions of jews being persecuted and killed. One example of the ugliness of the war would be the discrimination and the hatred of other races. While in power Hitler created concentration camps to contain Jews and people not of German background.
David Broudo was a Jew who helped destroy supply lines from the Germans that they established by blowing up bridges and trains and sabotaged them. He also smuggled munitions for resistance and hid guns in empty milk cartons (“David Broudo”). This smuggling was something many did during the Holocaust. The Holocaust started in the year of 1933 and lasted about 13 years. This dreadful event was the term for the slaughter of about six million Jews by the Nazi's controlled by Hitler.
Our society has gone through many life changing events all throughout the course of history. Many of these events are the type that affects not one or two individuals, but thousands and even millions, like the unspeakable terror attacks of September eleven. The Holocaust is one these occurrences that affected the entire world. What is the Holocaust? Why do we teach it to our children in school?
The Holocaust was a time period when the nazis killed jews just because they could. Holocaust is a word of greek origin meaning “sacrifice by fire.” The Nazis who came to power in Germany in January 1933 didn’t like the germans they believed that germans were “racially superior. ”Within the 15,000 camps located all across Germany, 11 million jewish people were murdered. This was one of the lowest points in our history that would later be called the holocaust.
March of 1933 something happened that would change the lives of millions forever. In ¨Dachau¨ the first concentration camp was opened (¨United States Holocaust Memorial Museum¨). This would be the first of thousands more to come, all with the intention of either forced labor or mass murder, often both (¨The Holocaust¨). Many events led to this crisis and they all included the persecution of the Jewish people.
During the holocaust, chancellor Adolf Hitler and his many followers, the Nazis, killed over six million Jews. Hitler brainwashed many Germans into thinking that the holocaust would be the scapegoat for all of their problems. After Hitler wrote his book, Mein Kampf, which means “My Struggle” the German citizens began to be brainwashed into thinking that eliminating the Jews would be their best option for long term happiness. Hitler wasn’t the first to bring anti-semitism to the table. Hitler was very good at making people believe what he was saying was the best for everyone, take the Nazi’s for example.
How did Hitler, a young innocent Austrian boy, become the evilest man in history? It all started with Hitler’s dream of being an artist. Hitler didn’t want to do any art he wanted to become a commercial artist. Hitler would submit his art to a museum but the museum would reject his art. After being rejected, Hitler joined the Nazis.
