November 9-10, 1938 was known as Kristallnacht or the Night of Broken Glass. Anti- Semitic Germans carried out this vicious attack targeting innocent people of Jewish faith. During this event, over 1000 synagogues were scorched and over 7500 Jewish run businesses were looted. The Jews were victims of the horrendous practice of scapegoating.
In the past, innocent people got persecuted by the hands of other individuals because of hatred. These terrible actions started because of the pure hatred, lack of knowledge, and people didn’t fight back. Since, this happened people have lost their lives for example 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and shooting that is going on. “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate”. Nazi ideology started Propaganda causing discrimination and hate which justified genocide, which led 6.3 millions Jews killed.
They would mow down row upon row of shivering, half naked adults, and smash the heads of babies with a show of pity or remorse(Wistrich).

For the period of 12 years million of Jews lived under the Nazi power and it persecution towards them. They held the highest population in all and every camp.
The Nazis will treat the Jews as if they were not real people this is an example of man inhumanity to man. The memoir Night by Elie Wiesel had many themes some were struggle to maintain faith, Nazi cruelty and man's inhumanity to man. The Holocaust has a big role in history and so many Jews had lost their life because one man hate them so much that he had to punish the Jews and made the Nazi army did many inhumane things to
Anti-Semitism was, and still is, the term used to describe the belief in hostile treatment towards Jews just because they are Jews. This term was introduced by Wilhelm Marr to designate anti-Jewish campaigns back in 1879, and it resurfaced when Hitler took over Germany. Adolf Hitler believed, as stated in his book “Mein Kampf”, that Jews were undermining civilized nations of Europe, therefor they had to be dealt with. The problem during this time, concerning anti-Semitism propaganda, is that they were able to manipulate people to an extent where they came to think that treating Jews in hateful ways was acceptable and, to a certain extent, an obligation that as proud Germans they had to carry out. Moreover, we will discuss how propaganda was meant to affect a subconscious level of peoples minds through subtle messages all the way to direct and concrete messages which would no longer affect them because they were already brutalized and dead to any moral
An evil disgusting dictator named Adolf Hitler built concentration camps and tortured and killed millions and millions of innocent people including men, women, and children. Jewish People were told that they would be living in a better place. But it was the opposite. In concentration camps, Jewish people were kept in small crowded cells filled with strangers and very little room for sleep and privacy.
The German man’s face was depicted as strong, symmetrical and superior, while the Jewish man’s face was cartoonish and had some monkey like features. In the lesson the instructor is talking about how the Jewish race has destroyed the purity of the German culture and that as German’s they are entitled to that purity and that they belong to the best race there is. I think that the Nazi party’s ability to speak to the German people, remind them a superior race and giving them someone to blame is why they were
Under Hitler’s Natzi regime, the Jewish people faced mass extinction and suffered perhaps the worst atrocities ever committed to mankind. The concentration camps that Jewish people were sent to were merely a path to their own excruciating death. Their lives consisted of an unrelenting schedule, with less than the bare necessities and ultimately culminated in any number of inhumane scenarios of their
One emotion that is clearly drawn out in the reader in Night is shock. experience this feeling in the following passage, which describes when Moshe the Beadle returns from being taken by the Nazis. He talks about what happened to him and the rest of the Jewish people taken. “There it stopped. The Jew had to get out and climb into lorries.
The Holocaust was a systematic persecution and murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi’s from 1933 to 1945. The Germans believed they were “racially superior” and that Jews were “inferior”, they were a treat to the German racial community. Gypsies, people with mental and physical disabilities, and poles were also targeted or decimation for racial, ethnic, or national reasons. Theodor Geisel, who drew editorial cartoons under the pen name “Dr. Seuss,” was outraged by the news from France and decided to use his cartooning skills to help publicize the plight of the Jews. Dr. Seuss’s wartime cartoon showed discrimination against Jews and called attention to the early stages of the Holocaust.
The Nazis were known for doing many things to Jews and others and they had their reasons. Their was many purposes for the things they did. The Nazis tried to defy the laws of human nature. They experiment on the Jews. They also tortured Jews just for the enjoyment.
Holocaust signifies“sacrifice by fire”. The Germans thought that they were “superior” to all other races.

They targeted Gypsies, disabled, Poles and Russians.
On January 30, 1933, darkness roamed all over in Germany. The world’s massive genocide occurred: the Holocaust. The Holocaust, led by the great Nazi party, frightened the sight of many people.
