There needs to be the act of deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. For the holocaust, they did that exact thing. The Germans targeted the Jews and undesirables only and anyone that did not agree with the Germans. They did not like all of the differences that that came in between them. I believe that the holocaust can be called a gencise due to the effort in the numbers and all the hate that went into the camps.
Nazi ideology started Propaganda causing discrimination and hate which justified genocide, which led 6.3 millions Jews killed. There are many ways that caused the Holocaust. For example, Nazi ideology was one of the reason, how this affected the timeline. Therefore, Nuremberg Laws are also another reason that started the actions.
In 1993 the beginning of the genocide of millions of Jewish people began otherwise known as the Holocaust. The Nazis plan to exterminate all Jewish people was referred to as the Final Solution. During this time period the Jewish people were discriminated against by being segregated, stripped of their identities, and being taken away from everything they own and love and forced into concentration camps. Segregation was one form of dehumanization and Jewish people were impacted by this greatly. Shown in Document #4: Discriminatory Decrees Against the Jews.
The Holocaust, meaning ‘sacrifice by fire’ (3), was a time in which mass murders were conducted by the Nazi Party. At this time, many of the Nazi’s policies were targeted towards the Jews as they were believed to be the reason that Germany lost the First World War and Hitler stated that ‘the personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew’ (3). During the Holocaust the Nazi Party not only targeted the Jews but they also targeted the Polish population, Prisoners of War, disabled people and Jehovah’s witnesses and many more. ‘The Holocaust wiped out many of the most educated and productive people in western Russia’ said by James A. Robinson (5). As a result of this segment of World War Two, the Jewish
However, they also can be applied to real world events. Fitzgerald’s quote from The Great Gatsby, links directly to the real world events of genocide of Jews in the Holocaust and the extermination of Rwandan citizens under the Hutu government. Though the examples from the novel differ, each represents the truth that history repeats itself. The Holocaust took place on January 30, 1933. The extermination of about six million Jewish citizens under the power of Adolf Hitler, gave a glimpse of our capacity to create destruction.
The Jews were not the only victims of persecution and murder by the Nazis. Homosexuals, Gypsies, Clergy, people with a physical or mental disabilities, Jehovah 's Witnesses, Poles and other Slavs were also victims. Those are many of different type of people that the Nazis had it out for. I only thought that the Nazis wanted to kill the Jews. There is evidence as early as 1919 that Hitler had a strong hatred for Jews.
The extermination of the Jews, known as the Holocaust, is simply the most violent, dreadful, and most deplorable event that has occurred in the world. Extremes were met during this time, and the tortuous schemes performed on the people of Jewish heritage were insane. This happened all because of one thing--a vicious fight for power. Power was needed for the Germans to function properly, they felt the need to eliminate all people who did not have a full German background, and discrimination was a severe problem in the 1930s. The appalling events were lead by a man named Adolf Hitler, who was a devious man himself.
He and his men killed millions including Jews, Gypsies, the disabled, and many more. Because of Hitler 's actions over 11 million were killed, 1 million of them being children. I think that the Holocaust was horrible and wrong and hopefully we will not have to experience anything like this again. I learned a lot from the books Night and The Book Thief. They made me realize how horrible the Holocaust was and what it was like to experience it.
The Holocaust was a genocide in Germany of all European Jews and ‘undesirables’, led by Adolf Hitler; he managed to kill 6 million jews using concentration camps and systematic killing. In the concentration camps, the Jews were forced to do labour work in factories to manufacture goods for the war; conditions were terrible, as Jewish individuals were not treated well physically and psychologically. Previous knowledge and impressions of mine, regarding the Holocaust, came from classroom discussions, reading textbooks, and by doing assignments. Therefore, the film depicted how truly horrific the Holocaust was, as it ruined the lives of innocent individuals, due to a factor of their lives which they could not control; can not decide to be Jewish,
Genocide is one of the most cruel crimes that can be committed towards a mass amount of people. There are many documented genocide historical events, such as the Holocaust, where German Nazi’s belived they were very superior, and so their goal was to eliminate all people that were inferior to them, so they began murdering millions of Jewish people all across Europe along with many others such as gypsies, gay people, and disabled people. All throughout history the main reason that has caused hatred between people is ethnic and religious tensions. A more recent example of a genocide is the Rwandan genocide that occurred in Rwanda, Africa in 1994, where the Hutu majority rebelled against the Tutsi minority because the Belgian colonists gave superiority
