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.

That is exactly how it was when Hitler slowly came to power in Germany and began to take over. Hitler blamed the Jews for all of the problems in Germany. He told people that they had too much power over the whole of Germany and that soon enough it would not be unique to its native customs. Sounds a little familiar right?
