Adolf Hitler could possibly be the worst politician of all time after causing the death of millions of innocent people. 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.
Today the Holocaust is one of the most studied historical events, yet it remains one of the most controversial and confusing topics in history. Following the revelations of the Nazi death camps at the end of World War Two (WWII) (1945), there began a focus on Hitler’s centrality in the Holocaust, which was fulfilling an apologetic function. To many Hitler embodied the violence and fanaticism of mythical anti-Semitism, while keeping the imperatives of modern bureaucratic functions. These ‘traditional views’ focus on anti-Semitism as the sole cause of the Holocaust and examine the irrational aspects of Nazi policy. More recent views show an overall policy of extermination while emphasizing the interaction between top Nazi officials and the
The Holocaust: Not Just A One Time Event When the Holocaust began in 1933, people around the world did not know the full extent of the killing. After the Holocaust ended in 1945, the world finally saw how inhumane Non-Aryans in Germany and Poland were treated by the German Reich. The U.N made an agreement to never let an event like that happen again. This is when the term “Genocide” was officially established.
The Holocaust is a well known genocide in European History. Due to of the mature nature and gory subject of the Holocaust, it is a very controversial subject to be taught in schools. Some people say that the Holocaust shouldn’t be taught in schools, while others says it should but only to a certain degree. There should be lots of preparation in teaching students about the Holocaust. They should be prepared for the details they will learn and be mature enough to deal with these details.
Do you believe we should remember the Holocaust? It is clear that everyone deserves to know the truth of the Holocaust, the effect it has on majority of the people, and its important place in history. Also, the Holocaust should be remembered out of respect for those who had passed away, or to honor those who had survived. There is no doubt that many people have no clue as to what happened in the Holocaust time period. Every human being should know about the Holocaust, yet you would be surprised how much of the world’s population knows nothing about the Holocaust.
Years after the Holocaust, historians are still engaged in debates so as to determine whether or not the Holocaust was unique and thus a number of perspectives have emerged in order to answer this question. For example, according to Rosenfeld (1999), historians who believe that the Holocaust is not unique such as Stannard , hold this view because they believe that the Holocaust, whilst horrific, was not the only instance of racially based mass killing and thus claiming that it is unique moves focus away from other genocides such as the murder of Native Americans by early colonisers . It has also been argued that the Holocaust was not unique because, whilst millions of Jews were killed, some Jews were intentionally left unharmed, even though
Remembering your heritage and respecting others’ is needed to prevent another Holocaust. “you must remember, for if you forget… life is gone indeed”,  says the man burning numbers onto the women. If one forgets their lives, then what they stood for, what they lived, their heritage, is gone. And without understanding heritage, racial biases and stereotypes are made. These biases and stereotypes lead to Discrimination.
The Holocaust is defined as “the systematic mass slaughter of European Jews in Nazi concentration camps during World War II” (Dictionary). Historians agree that approximately six million Jews were annihilated under the Third Reich. The atrocity of the Holocaust left scarring damages to the survivors and many perished anonymously. How can it be that two-thirds of an entire ethnicity be wiped off the face of the earth? In Voices of the Holocaust, it is shown that the Nazi party and German people’s anti-semitism and persecution allowed the horrors of the Holocaust to occur.
I already despised what the Holocaust meant and the historical background of it. Every year in grade school, we remember the tragedy of the Holocaust but we never talk about why it was allowed to get as far as it got or why no one tried to stop the dehumanization of Jews. In someways, even though I despised what happened during WWII, I have developed the mentally “things happen.” This shouldn’t be the mentality of anyone because the only way to make sure that it doesn’t happen again is to be aware of what is going on. Things don’t just happen, we allow them to happen.
