Could you imagine being one of the many victims that were beaten, starved, and tortured to death in a concentration camp? The Holocaust was a genocide that took place in Germany, lasting 4 years. The leader was Adolf Hitler, who believed there was a ‘Jewish Problem’. This genocide took place from 1941-1945, in concentration camps surrounding Poland. The Nazi Party was founded in 1919 and shortly after, Hitler became the leader in 1921.
For example, some of these laws close out Jews from places like parks, fired them from their jobs (i.e. government jobs), and Jewish doctors can only work for Jewish patients. During the night on November 9-10, 1938, Nazis started a pogrom against Jews in Austria and Germany in what hat they called, "Kristallnacht" also known as ("Night of Broken Glass"). The savage night involved the taking away and destroying of synagogues, sabotaging the windows of Jewish businesses, rob their stores, and they physically attacked many Jewish too. Also, about 30,000 Jews were sent to the concentration camps after arrested.
There was a horrific event that lasted twelve years. This event was fueled by hate for an entire group of people. For twelve long years six million Jewish men, women, and children were hunted down and killed. This event is known as the Holocaust and to prevent something as horrific as this we must research and study the Holocaust. The mass murder of over six million people was ordered by a man known as Hitler.
The first session took place on October 18,1945 in Berlin, Germany and later got moved to Nuremberg. There were of course arguments between the judges about the decisions. Their Background The four chief prosecutors of the IMT (International Military Tribunal) Robert H. Jackson (U.S.), Francois de Menthon(France), Roman A. Rudenko(Soviet Union), and Sir Hartley Shawcross(Great Britain), handed down
The Holocaust Concentration Camps: Auschwitz The Holocaust was a horrid experience. The Holocaust came about because Adolf Hitler was upset over the loss of World War I. Hitler blamed the Jews for Germany’s loss in World War I, and he wanted to take over Germany, with that came him thinking he had to get rid of all the Jewish people. So after the loss of World War I, he tried and succeeded with the extermination of most of the Jews. Hitler first sent the Jews to concentration camps, which about 20,000 concentration camps were built by Nazi Germany. The main camps were the ones of Auschwitz.
Research question: What was the aftermath of The Munich Massacre? Introduction: The Munich Massacre occurred on the 5th of September 1972 in Munich, Germany during the summer Olympic Games. The massacre was an act of terrorism by the Palestinian Terrorists which led to the captivity of eleven Israeli athletes from there house in the athlete village only to be killed at a nearby airfield. My topic of research is to look into the aftermath of the Munich Massacre and check how the Israeli government responded to the brutality of the attacks by the terrorists. Research Report: After the events of the Munich Massacre, Israel responded to the Palestinian brutality under the name Operation Wrath of God.
The Holocaust is considered one of the world’s most explicit examples of inhumanity. The German Nazi regime and their collaborators organized and executed the systematic extermination of millions of Jews, homosexuals, and gypsies. The few that survived set forth on a quest to reconstruct their lives, but were often hindered by the trauma they sustained. Simon Wiesenthal, a Holocaust survivor, struggled with his emotions from the war and sought solace by writing about his experiences as well as founding an organization responsible for catching Nazi war criminals. One of his most famous works, The Sunflower, recounts his interaction with a Nazi soldier lying on his deathbed.
Some of the reaming Nazi’s got what they deserved, justice. The Nuremburg Trials were two phases of the trails and happened through November 21, 1945-Aprial 13, 1949. The purpose of the Nuremburg Trials was to punish the German Nazi officers and leaders for what they did. According to the article “Nuremburg Trails”, by author William Young, “The Nuremburg Trials prosecuted political, military, and economic leaders of Germany after World War II,” (Young). This means that the trials at Nuremburg found the German political, military, and economic leaders guilty of the charges they committed before, during, and after WWII.
Killing Centers; An Undesirable Creation of Death. World War II started when German soldiers entered Poland on September 1, 1939. When Germany invaded Poland, Britain and France took charge on Germany on September 3 (Killing Centers). The Holocaust was a state- sponsored prosecution of millions of Jews led by Adolf Hitler in January 1933. When The Nazi’s took power in 1933 they thought that they were racially superior and Jewish people weren’t (Introduction To The Holocaust).
The Jonestown Massacre “Hurry my children, hurry, Jim Jones told his followers as they drank the poison that ended their lives”(Streissguth 1). James Warren Jones was an American religious leader who was born on May 13, 1931 and died on November 18, 1978. Jones soon became known as the leader of a cult called “ The People’s Temple”. Jim Jones initiated and was responsible for a mass murder and mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana. Mass murder and mass suicide committed by Jim Jones and the government as a part of the massacre are two theories surrounding the mystery behind “The Jonestown Massacre”.
Knowing they have lost, Hitler and many of his high ranking officers committed suicide, and Germany surrendered (The History Place, n.d.). At the end of the war, part of Asia and much of Europe laid in ruins. There was an uneasy peace; the United States and the Soviet Union became the most powerful, and the majority of the people was starving and homeless (Stokesbury, 2017). In conclusion, the end of the war was not a thing to rejoice
As he neared adulthood all of the power rushed to his head when he joined the Nazi party. After the war, Eichmann lost all his power and was later brought to justice. Eichmann will be forever known for his cruelty against the Jewish race. He was responsible for the millions of Jews killed and the attempted genocide of the Jewish race. Brought into the world in 1906 in Solingen Germany, Adolf Eichmann had a normal Childhood
Based on the evidence Speer was undoubtedly responsible and guilty in crimes against humanity, he was convicted to 20 years imprisonment because of his utilization as Minister for Production and Armaments in the consolidation of slave labour during the war effort. Although during the trials there was no explicit reference to his involvement as Chief Architect in the forced removal of Jewish citizens from their homes prior to 1942. The GBI resettlement department was formed in 1939 and headed by Dietrich Clahes, they were tasked in the matters of “relocation” of those citizens; historian Dan Van Der Vat presents an erased entry from The Chronik which was written in April 1941, “The Jew-flats rented from local landlords were cleared and the Jewish tenants were packed into Jewish living space on Jewish-owned land...In the period from 1.1 to 15.4.41 a total of 366 tenants in areas 4, 9, 12, 14 and 25 were required to resettle”. (Van Der Vat, p.98, 1997) The source is indicative of the extent of his participation in enforcing anti-semitic ideology, “But beyond that there is a collective responsibility; when he has been one of the leaders.” in juxtaposing the incriminating evidence with that quote, the statements intention is imperative to Speers broader context. Through the assimilation of evidence it’s clear why Speer incriminated himself, in holding constructive
Hitler made the military decisions for his country during the war, but he is perhaps most known for his role in the Holocaust. The Holocaust was "the systematic murder of 6 million Jews across Europe (Danzer et al. 542)." At first, Jewish people were restricted of their liberties through the Nuremberg Laws ("Holocaust Timeline"). After forcing many Jews to leave, only around 250,000 Jewish people remained in Germany; therefore, Hitler executed his Final Solution, which was "a policy of genocide, the deliberate and systematic murder of an entire population (Danzer et al.
The Nazis enforce laws that oppress the jews. Because of the new laws has to make one of his associates the owner of his own company. Otto and Edith decide that the dangers are too great for their family and decide that they need to go into hiding.
