When he was young, he learned that Jews are the cause of all evil from an anti-Semitic book called The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which had probably affect his whole life. Although Hitler was well educated, the book still influence his mind greatly (Margaret, whyguides). His hatred toward Jews were drew up from this literature. He deeply believed that Jews are disloyal, untrustworthy, and not capable to be a German citizen, (Jessica Marie, enkivillage) so when he formed the Nazi party, he chose the Jews as a scapegoat to gain support from German people. He also blamed the Jews on made Germany lost in the World War One (Margaret,
A genocide is the the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation, the Holocaust and the Cambodian Genocide are examples of this. After the Holocaust, in 1945 the United Nations realized that genocides were a continuously happening. They realized they needed to prevent genocides and global conflict in general.
Holocaust signifies“sacrifice by fire”. The Germans thought that they were “superior” to all other races. They claimed that they had encountered a “final solution” to the “problem” of racial disparity. Germans targeted other groups because of their perceived "racial inferiority". They targeted Gypsies, disabled, Poles and Russians. Many groups had to march the treacherous marches, eat the horrible food and live/die in dreadful conditions. This is an account of one of the survivors that went through the appalling conditions before, during and after the holocaust. The fear of death consumed him. He smelled the diseases, tasted the stale bread and rancid soup. He heard the screams of people everywhere, but he clung on to the flicker of hope burning
The 20th century was a time of both success and sadness, triumph and tragedy, however, no event in European history has been quite as disheartening as the Nazi Holocaust, the darkest hour in European History. In less than a decade, The Nazi Party murdered well over 6,000,000 Jews. 6,000,000 mothers, children, fathers, even babies. This tragedy was justified on the grounds that the people of the Jewish population were subhuman, a burden to the Nazi regime. Similar to the Jewish population of Europe, the people of Salem in The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, were unfairly sentenced to death without any justifiable reasoning, other than suspicion and hatred. In the past, never before has a civilization been subjected to such incredible punishment
The holocaust was one of the worst genocides that has happened to one race in the last 100 years it lead to the deaths of 6 million to 17 million jews. There are not that many people still alive that got saved for it because of the exprempit they were put through the time they were in the camps dieing. One of many ways the nazis killed so many jews was gas chambers and pizza type ovens they had mounds of people from the gas chambers piled up in the millions. When they got saved they had to did massov graves and use a bulldozer to get all the bodys in to the grave. In the book Night by Elie Wiesel there are many instes of dehumanizing for example they had to be put in to the cattle cars. they also had got beaten for for having food. they also
In the 1930s and 40s, a man named Hitler Took over Germany, and his goal was to kill every jewish person in Europe. He even said, “Eliminate the jews,” Hitler proclaimed, “and you will eliminate all of Germany's problems!”(6). Hitler did not like the jews, he thought it was their fault that the germans had lost WWI. So, he wanted to get rid of them. And he wanted to kill all nine million of them.
During the holocaust, The Nazis used a form of treatment towards the Jews to make them feel less and less human it was called dehumanization. This means to deprive someone of their human like qualities and merely make them feel like a “thing” that gets in peoples way. They used this method to make it seem like the Nazis were doing them a favor, they were killing the jews to “purify” germany in their eyes.
Elie Wiesel strongly answered “What is Evil?” in detail within his experienced text as he addresses about the memories of the death of his family. My whole life I have heard it said that evil is Man itself: the cruelest animal. In Elie Wiesel’s memoir, he illustrates the true definition of “What is Evil” by explaining the horrors his eyes witnessed, the death of his own innocence, and the horrific memories that scorch in the back of his mind still to this day.
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. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering” summarizes the thinking behind Nazi Germany and the Holocaust.
The Holocaust was one of the most terrifying events that had scared the history of the Jewish people and will forever leave a mark in history as well. During the Holocaust millions of Jewish people were sent to concentration camps or killing centers to be exterminated. At the camps Jews were beaten, called names, and were treated badly as well. Also, in the camps and killing centers the SS guards would use a stick, their hand, or their foot to brutally beat the Jews. The names the Germans usually called the Jews were fools, devils, and much more. Throughout the Holocaust the Jewish people were dehumanized by inhumane conditions and brutal treatment.
Germany’s Adolf Hitler was a great leader and he was preparing a war of the century World War 1. Although many countries around the world were about to be in the biggest war of their lives. Germany had their own hatred against one specific group, the Jews, they were a less populated group of people against Germany and a whole lot weaker in military terms. The Jews were a very religious group of individuals. Following World War 1 Germany were trying to pick themselves back on their feet to regain their power they had lost in the war. Many Germans blamed their failure in the war because of the Jews. No one to this day exactly knows why Hitler had so much hatred towards the Jews.
Before the Holocaust Jews had the right to Religion, the right to own their own businesses, and have jobs. The only things they had to follow were the regulations of the law in Germany at that time, just like any other human being. But, after Hitler came into power things started to change drastically. Hitler wanted nothing to do with the Jewish culture, he wanted every single Jew out of sight, and out of mind. Although he never directly said he wanted to exterminate them, he was open about the hatred he had towards them. Why? People have been debating that question for years, and still don’t have a completely clear answer to what his motive was. As Hitler became more and more powerful in Germany, the little freedom they had become less and less as time went on. There were restaurants that only Germans could go into, “No Jews allowed” is what a sign would say on the door. Or, swimming pools. There were separate swimming pools for Jews, and for Germans because if they swam together that would be against the law. Part of the reason
Evil is timeless. It feasts on four year olds and forty-four year olds. It comes in the forms of greed, sloth, gluttony, lust, wrath, envy and pride. Though, no matter which inculcates itself in the mind of a human being it is always fueled by a lack of understanding and the absence of a greater appreciation for oneself, for the world and the other lifeforms in it. One of the most notable presentations of evil in all of human history lies within the workings of a single German man, Adolf Hitler. Under his reign, Germany was the cornerstone to the most atrocious, if not one of the worst genocides in all of time. The Holocaust during World War 2 was the deliberate and monstrous massacre of the minority groups in Europe (most notably those
Hitler Manipulated the peoples brain and making them think that the jews were bad influence and they were bad people the only reason he said that because he wanted the money because they were financially successful and had power at that time. The amount of jews living in Germany at that time was only 2%, most jews lived in Russia and Poland. Hitler hated the jews because they were wealthy in his mind wealthy meant power which was actually
The main problem with evil is “this is a serious objection to the existence of God” (Kreeft, P. 2013). This objection to God is destroying people, lives, families, and relationships. Evil makes people do bad things, even good people fall victim to evil thoughts, actions, and words. It works against people to cause problems between families, parents, husbands and wives, siblings, and other loved ones. Evil is defined by Oxford Dictionary (2015), as “profound immorality, wickedness, and depravity, especially when regarded as a supernatural force: the world is stalked by relentless evil.”
