During World War II, Hitler and his Nazis ruled Germany declaring Jews and various other races inferior. Afterwards, all Jews in Germany were rounded up and sent to different concentration camps all throughout Germany. Most people sent to the camps were gassed; however, some were experimented on for the Nazi’s own gain. There were terrible, traumatizing experiments that took place on these camps, horrible experiences for all victims. The gruesome experiments that took place during the Holocaust are abhorrent because the experiments they performed, the procedure of the tests, and the ethical conflicts that these despicable tests left behind.
The Helmuth Huebener Group Hitler was an expert of deception. Most German citizens were left in the dark about the war for years due to the use of propaganda, although a few very brave Resistance fighters fought back to this propaganda. Through leaflets to lethal force, Resistance fighters continually tried to spread the truth about Hitler. Helmuth Hubener and his friends were very brave Resistance fighters who tried to expose Hitler’s propaganda. Hitler was able to deceive German citizens throughout the Holocaust; and even during the last few months of the Holocaust, many Germans still believed that Germany was winning the war.
January 30, 1933 was the day that President Hindenburg appointed Adolf Hitler Chancellor of Germany, which was the beginning of the Holocaust (Google History). In Source A, a young Jewish girl, Anne Frank, wrote in her diary that the Gestapo was taking away Jewish friends and acquaintances and sending them away to concentration camps. She listened to the English radio to later find out that they were being killed and gassed. Source B reveals, that in the steps to genocide, people classified as different are prohibited rights and personal honor. They are referred to as “sub-human, while the Nazis referred to Jews as vermin” (Source B).
Some might aid, while others will not intervene. This was a dilemma many Germans may have witnessed during World War Two. Sadly, crimes are still committed to this day, and bystanders are forced into a difficult decision just as Germans in the Holocaust were: To speak out against these injustices and risk their lives, or to not step in. Considering different views and sources, when bystanders witness a crime, they have a responsibility to help. Others who do not agree with this claim may say onlookers should remain neutral and not risk their lives.
Have you ever wondered what happened to the Nazi guards alive during the Holocaust? Former Nazis to this day are still being prosecuted, but should they really be? Nazi guards should not be put into jail anymore for many reasons. First, Nazi guards wouldn’t have been able to stop the massacre from happening. When they signed up to become Nazis, they didn’t actually know what was going on, and when they got there, if they were to testify against the killing, they would have just been shot.
Death or being sent to a labor camp, such as Gulag, was the fate of most. From 1936 to 1938, people were being killed over paranoia and no actual evidence. The purges were aimed to efface the threat of political retaliation. The Blood Purges were a time of paranoia, brutality and terror. Russian citizens were forced to admit to crimes they may or may not have committed.
These acts were being permitted because people were just not speaking up and letting it happen. The Nazis and Hitler wanted more than what they had so they took from people. The Jews were hated because people are believing things that were not true. It was not just then it also happening now the Holocaust may have been a big event but Silent Majority, Discrimination, and Hate has not changed at all. The Nazi’s of Germany were greedy because they believed Jewish people were the reason they did not have money.
He would even burn his own villages just to instill fear in the peasantries and to discourage criminals from stealing food shipments. After he took control he did massive purging of the followers and loyal officers of Lenin, and these purges involved more deaths and exiling. His death count was higher than Hitler’s and then all he ruined lives of those who were exiled or the families of the ones who died. Although some people can argue that Stalin did some good things, such as help the Allied forces defeat the Axis powers during WWII. When he helped the Allied forces, Hitler’s army was beginning to invade Russia and Stalin had the Russian army push back the invading forces all the way back to Berlin.
As Goebbels worked hard on the propaganda campaign, the Jews found themselves facing a huge surge of hated towards them by the public. Hitler can be held responsible for the burning of Jewish businesses, creating Jewish ghettos and distributed ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ a book which claimed that the Jews were trying to takeover the world. Propaganda at the hands of the Nazi’s can be said to have played a huge role in the responsibility for the Holocaust. The promotion of anti-Semitic beliefs which got the majority of the public on the Nazi’s side meant that ordinary people were seeing that the extermination of the Jews was taking place and either didn’t do anything about it or helped play a role. This can be because of fear, of what would happen to them if they either rebelled or didn’t contribute.
Hitler loathed the Jews so he detained them and eventually lynched them up. Over 6 million Jews died in the holocaust and hardly any lived. In this essay, it’s going to explain about how the concentration camps started and what it was like to live in one. Concentration camps opened in March 1933, They were first intended for interred political opponents such as communists, social democrats and others who have been convicted in a court of law. The Nazis founded their first concentration camp, Dachau, in the wake of Hitler's takeover of power in 1933.
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.
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.
The Popish cruelties were a shocking eye opener to how people with power can hurt people just because they have a following. They would persecuted until they choose baptism or death, even if they converted the separation was still there. They would torture them by burning the accused, especially if believed to promote protestant faith. Many of the affected were muslims and jews because of their different religious views, that were killed unless converting. The hostility only grew higher especially in England until the law did not allow the torture of them as long as religious beliefs did not affect the throne.
