We all know that Jewish people were the main targets in the Holocaust, but not many people know that other groups and races. Some groups that were killed are but not limited to: disabled people, LGBTQIA+ people, Roma Gypsies, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Polish People and people of African descent. While Jewish people should be recognized for their struggles, so should every other group. Disabled People Hitler didn’t want to have any disabled people in Nazi Germany. He thought that they were too much work and overall useless to society.
If nobody believed in Hitler 's lies we could have been a stronger community and a stronger nation overall. The Nazi party used propaganda to hate the jews which led to the Nuremberg laws which made them have less freedom and that led to the killing of 6 million people. The main thing that happened in the camps was genocide. Most of the
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
The holocaust was not just a movement to mass execute the Jewish race; there were reasons behind this tragic event. Hitler, the Nazi leader, believed that Germans were “racially superior” and the Jews were “inferior”, therefore they should be eliminated. Does this not happen today? Stereotypes, racism, prejudice and discrimination keep us from evolving and living at peace with each other. We see discrimination and racism happen everyday in our lives.
Identity in World War II was an essential part of why Hitler chose a particular type of person to kill off. Someone’s identity singles them out and causes them to be hurt since they are different from the Aryans. Now, people are celebrated for their different identities and not killed for it. After Stopthief, Jack had his second identity, Misha
The Nazis should not be solely responsible for the Holocaust because the Germans are also involved in playing a role with the massacres of Jews. The Germans bear the sole responsibility for the Holocaust because of their motivation to contribute in a significant role, their feeling of supremacy over minority groups, and their lack of resistance against the Nazi government. First of all, the Germans exhibited a deliberate will to contribute to the massacres of Jews in the Holocaust. Starting from October 1940, German soldiers were forcing 3 million Jews into concentrated ghettos in Poland, resulting in Jews being easily forced into extermination camps from the SS (Taylor, para. 3).
Elie Wiesel survived the Holocaust and his accounts of Nazi death camps portray a dark time for moral values. Unfortunately for Jewish people in Europe, they were the target of oppression for Hitler. Society stereotypes the Jewish people just as other ethnicities. Stereotypes seem to be a common way for people to view others. Germany needed a scapegoat for all the struggles they were facing and Hitler used stereotypes to give the German people a scapegoat.
It is extremely important to prosecute the criminals as a way of remembering the Holocaust victims and knowing what they went through. “Everywhere in the world, there is an obscene attempt by people who call themselves historians who dare to deny the deaths of the victims. Who dares to tell me my parents were not killed in the camps” (Wiesel 6). This shows that many people disbelieve in the Holocaust; therefore they are forgetting the horrendous things done to the victims. It is very important to remember the tragedy that the Holocaust caused in order for it to not happen again.
Not too much is said about his religious life, however, it is known that he made changes in movies to portray idealistic characters even when the author of the novel was very much against it. For example, in the movie The Young Lions, he portrays a German officer who, in the original novel, was hard, cruel and careless. Brando insisted on portraying him as a thoughtful man who, in his own manner of resistance, was appalled with the transformation of his country under the Nazi regime. In the end, the character committed suicide out of disgust. This is very different from the character in the novel, who was portrayed as cynical and careless.
Nikitchenko 's action to oversee such crimes was very wrong. Now, in 1945 he was serving as a judge to condemn German Nazis for their wrongdoings even though he had witnessed and approved of the killing and torture of innocent citizens. This just contradicts the Nuremberg trial 's mission. The Nuremberg trials were meant to punish Germans and all those who had committed reprehensible acts during the war, but the Allies were not convicted for their crimes (Davenport 141). Because those charges against the Nazis were made following the crimes, it is suspicious that none of the crimes committed by the Allied powers were brought forward.
In total, german authorities and their collaborators killed up to six million Jews. That was two-thirds the population of the Jewish population in Europe 1939. Even though the Nazis didn’t annihilate the Jewish population or even win the war, they still ended, destroyed, and changed many people 's lives. So I conclude that the final solution was one of the most thought out and persistent plans
Even though they are similar, concentration and internment camps aren’t the same because one was out of fear, the other hatred, ‘actions’ versus ‘reactions’, and the Japanese had opportunities, while the Jewish didn’t. Nazi concentration camps and Japanese internment camps are not the same thing because Hitler made his camps out of hate, while internment camps were made out of fear. Internment camps were established after the Japanese bombed the U.S. Concentration camps just collected everyone who didn’t fit the idea of a ‘pure’ German. Even though they are similar, the German camps were made before things got bad in the war, and not because the country got bombed.
Thus, began the persecution of the Jews which involved burning all those accused, no matter age or gender. The last document however, states that the blaming of Jews was wrong and that they could not have possibly done such a heinous crime. The sickness had affected everyone regardless of who they were. The documents show and describe the Black Death and how it happened in many ways. Europe really didn’t know what to think of all the death that was surrounding them so they tried understanding it the best they could.
Did the Holocaust really happen? How are the Nazi’s let alone anyone else capable of this amount of this amount of trouble? A lot of people don 't think that the holocaust even really happened, personally I believe that it did. There are many different reasons on why the holocaust supposedly never happened but the most consistent, well believed one is that no human being is capable of causing this much torture and pain onto another person. You have probably learnt about The Holocaust from either books or in your history classes in school, but what they probably didn 't tell you that some people believe that The Holocaust never even happen.
