Using hatred as a way to rally the German population to their cause, the Nazi Party was able to advance the elimination of Jews. The anger and hate of the Jews induced fear in others who were afraid for their own safety. Fear of the Jews themselves allowed a path to anger, which would lead to hatred and the suffering of others. Yoda’s quote from Star Wars, “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger.
Amid the other two forms of indoctrination, censorship is constantly brought up throughout The Book Thief in a variety of ways. One of the most popular forms of censorship is “...we also stop our enemies once again. We stop them reaching into our minds...We put an end to the disease...The immoral!...the Jews!...And now we say goodbye to this trash, this poison” (110-111). In this scene, the Nazis in Molching have united the young Germans for a ‘bonfire’, when in reality it is a book burning to try and make sure that the youth do not gain ideas or knowledge from or about Jews.

These law basically helped the Germans overpower the Jewish people. Last but not least, the Nuremberg laws had affect the Holocaust in multiple ways. Throughout the Holocaust the Jews began to become isolated from society and more in the Holocaust. “These laws had embodied many of the racial theories underpinning Nazi
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.
In Nazi Germany, the idea that Jews were responsible for the horrible reparations after the Great War was common. It was thought that negroes in the 20th century were lazy panhandlers. The bourgeoisie seeked to rid France of their current politicians because it was assumed that anyone with political power during the king’s reign seeked to overthrow the new government. The term “witch hunt” best describes these scenarios, and it is no coincidence that Arthur Miller writes about the inspiration for the term when he describes McCarthyism in The Crucible. It is through this use of hysteria that influential people gain more power.
Out of the two world wars, World War II is known to be the bloodiest and brutal war. The main reason this is to believed is because to the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the time period where many were persecuted for their beliefs and race. Hitler is who is to blame for the Holocaust, he is the one who organized all the horrific things done to the people who did not fall under his Master Race. Despite the many theories about the purpose of the Holocaust, the real purpose make those who weren’t members of the Master Race fear the Nazi Regime, to force them to obey the Nazi’s without question.
The reason he provided for the Germans loss of WW1 was because of the Jews of Germany, specifically the bankers. When he came to power he organized one of the largest mass murdering schemes in history, that being the Holocaust. In states in his book Mein Kampf, “Rational anti-Semitism, however, must lead to systematic legal opposition.…Its final objective must unswervingly be the removal of the Jews altogether.”. Hitler further emphasized his anti-Semitic feelings by passing the Nuremberg Laws. Encyclopedia Britannica describes this law as, “the Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour and the Law of the Reich Citizen—became the centerpiece of anti-Jewish legislation and a precedent for defining and categorizing Jews in all German-controlled lands.” The law also set strict regulations on marriage and business.
Can define what Anti-Semitism is and how Hitler used it to gain power in Germany After WW1, the Treaty of Versailles, which was inflicted unfairly on Germany to cripple them after they lost, was a major part of what let Hitler come to power. This accompanied by Anti-semitism, the discrimination of Jews, which was used to pin the blame on the Jews of Europe. They were blamed for Germany’s economic struggles which bolstered nationalism amongst German citizens. Which in turn, it also led to Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor of Germany. Can list at least (4) ways that Jews were discriminated against during the Holocaust The Holocaust showed a number of different types of discrimination like: having to wear a the Star of david on their coat, they weren’t allow bike, they had a strict curfew, and couldn’t own businesses.
The perfect Genocide During the holocaust 6, million Jewish people were killed. Nazi Germany was able to achieve 2 of the hardest things to do by a government… Genocide and love of its people, at the same time. You must be wondering how the heck someone could achieve such a horrifying thing and still have their countries support, I’ll tell you…media. Nazi Germany used media and propaganda to hide and manipulate information in order to achieve their goals. Before and during the 2nd world war, Germany used speeches and propaganda to earn the love of their citizens and slightly induce them the Jew dehumanization.
“A major priority of the Nazi Party was to eliminate racially inferior groups in Germany and across Europe. Discuss how and why they did this” The Nazi part prosecuted many racial and social groups during their reign from 1933-1945. The Nazi party followed their beliefs that there was a superior race called the Aryan race and used Charles Darwin’s theory of Social Darwinism to prosecute these groups. In this essay I will discuss the prosecution of the Jewish people, the homosexuals and the gypsies (Roma) and how and why they did this. The persecution of the Jewish people began when the Nazi Party blamed them for spreading defeatism nearing the end of WW1.
