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). The psychological effect on those who lived during the Holocaust are beyond any superficial description. Hitler mainly targeted the Jewish population because he defined Jews as a race not a religion. 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 Nazi’s and the swatzika are very bad things. The Nazi’s killed over six million Jewish men, women, and children and 60 million people died in World War II which lasted for six years. Adolph Hitler was voted in as German Chancellor in 1933. He then created the Nazi party with its Swastika as a symbol for the Nazi party meaning racial purity. 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.
Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
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.
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
The Holocaust was a persecution and eventual mass murder of Jews during the Nazi regime in the World War II. An estimate of six million Jews were killed, all because of their religion and beliefs. The Nazi thought they were the superior race, and Jews were “inferior” as well as a danger to the ‘perfect’ German community. Gradually, the German government was filled with people who believed that Jews needed to be purged. They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes.
This means that a leader must have no mercy and punish hard to keep their people in line. This philosophy applies quite a lot to Hitler, for example, Kristallnacht (the night of broken glass). On the night of November 9, 1938, violence and hatred against Jews broke out across the German Reich and thousands of Jews were captured and killed. The morning after the massacres, 30,000 German Jewish men were arrested for the "crime" of being Jewish and sent to concentration camps, which was a harsh punishment. De Nacht der langen Messer (The night of the long knives) is another example and was a purge that took place in Germany in which Nazi soldiers carried out numerous political homicides on 77 leading figures of the left-wing Strasserist faction of the Nazi Party.
Through Number the Stars, readers can understand how much pain and suffering the Jewish people had to go through because of the Germans. During World War II, Germany was one of the most powerful countries, and thus, many surrounding countries were under the rule of Germany. Jewish people living in those areas were paralyzed with fear every single day. Nazi Germany seized all the shops owned by the Jewish, taking away their livelihood. Jewish people were then sent to concentration camps.
On the other hand, I personally believe intolerance is the fact that some human beings can’t handle the fact that not everyone 's the same. In our world, there has been many cases of people showing intolerance in the past, and present to a group of people. The past has seen many cases of intolerance. One of the biggest cases was the Holocaust. The Holocaust had Adolf Hitler attempting to wipe out every single Jew on the face of the Earth.
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,
