The reason he provided for the Germans loss of WW1 was because of the Jews of Germany, specifically the bankers. When he came to power he organized one of the largest mass murdering schemes in history, that being the Holocaust. In states in his book Mein Kampf, “Rational anti-Semitism, however, must lead to systematic legal opposition.…Its final objective must unswervingly be the removal of the Jews altogether.”. Hitler further emphasized his anti-Semitic feelings by passing the Nuremberg Laws. Encyclopedia Britannica describes this law as, “the Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour and the Law of the Reich Citizen—became the centerpiece of anti-Jewish legislation and a precedent for defining and categorizing Jews in all German-controlled lands.” The law also set strict regulations on marriage and business.
This act of hatred or maybe even racism was called Anti-Semitism. Due to this Jews were wrongly blamed for sickness, poverty, economic crisis, political conflicts, and more (Byers 9). Adolf Hitler had led the charge of Anti-Semitism. Hitler had also believed that it was the Jews fault that Germany had lost the first World War, which was a contributing factor in moving Jews to the ghettos (Byers 35). The order was sent for the Jews to be moved to the first

This quote that he wrote means people are humans, they feel the same emotions, they all feel pain. Elie wrote about his experience in the Holocaust that led to his advocate for human rights through the book Night that was published in 1956 (Wiesel, Night). Elie Wiesel uses his Holocaust experience, positive lessons, and his purpose for writing Night as a reason to advocate human rights today. Elie’s experience in the Holocaust caused him to advocate human rights after he escaped from the nightmare him and Jews went through. Jew were either killed on the spot or put into a concentration camps (Wiesel, Night).
By the end of World War 2, about 6 million Jews were murdered in concentration camps (Textbook, pg 503-504). Elie Wiesel, a survivor of Auschwitz, reflected, “Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust” (Textbook, pg 505). Still to this day, Wiesel is traumatized by the grim experiences that took place in the Auschwitz death camp.
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.
In order for the readers, to properly empathize with the characters, the story must first have some credibility to it which, in this case, is given by the theme of loss of faith in god. In the holocaust, while it was a massacre of all non-aryan races, Hitler particularly targeted the jews, putting the Jews into ghettos, granting them nonperson status and eventually, shipping to concentration camps where countless brutal, inhumane things were done to them including being put in gas chambers, thrown in the crematorium if they weren't fit and worked without any regards to their comfort or rights. Essentially, the Jews weren't treated as humans due to their faith. It would be strange if all of the jews continued to believe in god, a being supposedly all good and all powerful, when they have went without any signs of him for so long and faced persecution due to their believe in him. Thus, Wiesel uses the theme loss of faith in god in order to give credibility to the events in his memoir, for the ultimate purpose of getting the readers to empathize with the
Critics argue that this is not the main focus of the book although they are right this is still an important focus of the story. Vladeck and his family are put in very hard situations that they have to find some type of safety to save themselves and others this happens when Vladek and his wife have to figure out what to do with their son. “I have a good friend, a pole, who’s willing to hide my son until the situation gets better. ...I think he’d take you boy too.” (Spiegelman, 81). Safety is the priority for their son and this shows great humanity that someone is looking out for their son and his well being.
What is left are the remains of the sites of these murders and the historical record. What is left also is the certainty that these extermination camps were a manifestation of absolute evil.” Schroder also uses pathos and emotional appeal to connect with his audience. He takes responsibility for the German population, but then states the beginning point to when the Jews were first free and he uses statistics to show that the Jewish community is a large part in Germany creating a sense of formality. He also states that this community is an irreplaceable part of their society and culture and it is a brilliant and painful part in history (Schroder). Schroder uses strong diction and word choice to encourage the audience feel empathy to those who have lost their lives or the Holocaust survivors.
However, it is often forgotten that the Jews were not the only ones to be subjected to such cruel persecution. Poles, Slavs, and the Romanis (Gypsies) were also subjugated to the same treatment. Sadly, the reasoning behind this savagery was caused by petty personal beliefs and pride. Numerous diverse ethnic groups endured inhumane, scarring affliction for others’ bigotry and narrow mindedness. Adolf Hitler’s egocentric, maniac ideology is one of the main causes for the death of six million
