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 purpose of these trials were to bring Nazi War criminals to justice. The International Military Tribunal was representing 23 nations and they put the Nazi War criminals on trial. Before the trials even began, Hitler had committed suicide leaving his partner in crime, Goering, to face the charges, but he too had also committed suicide. During these trials, 22 of the Nazi War leaders were charged with waging of war of aggression, the “crimes against humanity”, mass murder of 11 million people. People who were executed were also burned at the concentration camp, Dachau, where many of their victims lives were taken.
By blaming the Jews for Germany’s economic crisis and their defeat in World War I, Hitler was able to target the Jews as the country’s main enemy. According to him, the Jews were liable for many of Germany’s issues. As Hitler’s following grew, so did his power over Germany. During his time in power, over six million Jews were killed in execution camps. Many people helped Hitler to
In a few of the concentration camps, Nazi physicians conducted medical experiments on people imprisoned in the camp that often led to the death of the patients. The deaths of the Jewish population in a concentration camp was often carried out by using a gas chamber. Before Germany’s surrender on November, 1944, Soviet forces liberated the Stutthof, Sachsenhausen, and Ravensbrueck concentration camps. US forces liberated the Buchenwald concentration camp near Weimar, Germany, on April 11, 1945, a few days after the Nazis began evacuating the
Elie Wiesel faced a lot of cruelty and a lot of inhumanity from man throughout his time in the concentration camps from other prisoners and the Nazis. In the memoir, Night by Elie Wiesel, cruelty and the theme of man’s inhumanity to man appears throughout the whole story and throughout Elie 's time within the concentration camps, in that it gives us examples of how the Nazis didn’t feed them enough, beat them, stripped them of their identities, made them run long distances, and how the Jew’s would be cruel to each other when they would take food from one another and beat others. One of the first examples of cruelty is from the Nazis towards Elie. The author wrote “Then I was aware of nothing but the strokes of the whip. One...Two…, he counted.” (Weisel 65), which shows us how the Nazi’s would beat the Jewish people within the concentration camps.
This shows how the Nazis treated Elie and the other Jews with hunger and how they did not get any food. The Nazis will treat the Jews as if they were not real people this is an example of man inhumanity to man. The memoir Night by Elie Wiesel had many themes some were struggle to maintain faith, Nazi cruelty and man's inhumanity to man. The Holocaust has a big role in history and so many Jews had lost their life because one man hate them so much that he had to punish the Jews and made the Nazi army did many inhumane things to
A lot of horrible experiments were constructed during World War 2, but the most horrifying were those by Dr. Mengele. Dr. Josef Mengele was a physician in the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II. He was notorious for the selection of victims to be killed in the gas chambers and for performing deadly human experiments on prisoners. His experiments were very gruesome as well as deadly. Dr. Mengele was born March 16, 1911 and died at the age of 67 on February 7, 1979.
Those people who had hatred against another race thought that they were more supreme. Both things had lots of people dying and lots of incidents happened because of hatred. They both had “groups” of people who tried to be more supreme and hated all other kinds of people. In the rise of Hitler it was the Nazi Party, and in To Kill a Mockingbird it was the farmers and some of the white residents. To Kill a Mockingbird is a book that expresses racism and hatred that affects people.
The Holocaust is a horrifying subject that started in the early 1940’s and mid-WWII. The Holocaust was formed by Adolf Hitler (Allen 5). He directed a team of people called Nazis to build the concentration camps (Allen 5). The Nazis killed many people during the Holocaust including Jewish men, women, and children. It all started with one camp called Auschwitz where many people died including author and holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel’s family.
The bitter defeat of Germany in the World War 1 and the humiliating Treaty of Versailles gave rise to an indigenous and extreme form of fascism in Germany called Nazism. This ideology leads to one of the worst genocide in the history of mankind, known as The Holocaust, in which approximately six million Jews were killed by the Nazi regime under the command of Adolf Hitler and its collaborators. These killings took place throughout Nazi Germany and German occupied territories. During and after World War ll, i.e., between 1941- 1945, Jews were targeted and methodically murdered in the largest genocide of the 20th cent. Every arm of Germany’s bureaucracy was involved in the logistics of the genocides, turning the Third Reich into “a genocidal
Concentration Camps “ Researchers found out that the Nazi’s had actually established about 20,000 camps between 1933 and 1945.” These camps were made to harm, kill, and force hard labor on the Jews. Concentration camps were mainly for the Jews to be put through harsh labor that caused many to die. The Jews were put into these camps because Hitler and the Nazi’s did not believe Jews belonged here on earth and that they only caused trouble. The Jew was mistreated and killed. “Concentration Camps were part of the “ Final Solution” a plan created by Hitler and the Nazi’s to exterminate the Jewish people.” “Imprisonment in a concentration camp meant inhumane forced labor, brutal mistreatment, hunger, diseases, and random executions.
“The first concentration camps were made to detain people without trial, usually under harsh conditions.” (www.theholocaustexplained.org) The Nazis did this because they discriminate and hate the Jews. “German authorities established camps to handle the masses of people arrested as alleged subversives.” (www.ushmm.org) Germany blamed the Jews for their loss of World War I. “Concentration camps held two purposes, these purposes were to demoralize and dehumanize the prisoners.” (www.owlspace-ccm.rice.edu) The Nazis tortured them and made them break on the inside. It was sad to be taken to a concentration camp because it meant that it was the end of your life.
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. 544)." Jewish people were relocated to concentration, labor, and death camps. There, millions of Jews and other targeted groups were shot, starved, overworked, and gassed. Jews were the most victimized group in the Holocaust, but Hitler also targeted gypsies, Jehovah 's Witnesses, freemasons, and homosexuals (Danzer et al 548).
As tension grows along around the Nuremberg laws, different ways of propaganda are being used from the Nazi’s to grow more difficulty towards the Jews. It’s an an advantage to push out more hate and fear,in other words it’s an advantage to the Nazi’s. It also relies on false evidence or lies as it mostly was used a lot against the Jews from them being told as being aliens, demons, all sorts of lies to convince the German society that they were monsters, as they told enough lies,” Man is not what he think he is, he is what he hides”, www.goodreads.com. Propaganda is basically a “welcome mat” towards the Jews, as the new laws take place, it established the silent-majority to leave them out of society. It just about to show hate, fear, propaganda, and other elements were took into play to the Holocaust to display a potential to destroy and to end the Jews as we know it, even though it was prevented of the destruction of a religious ethnicity, it could have ultimately end a race in humankind as we know it as one man can do it all through the support of an army and a
This force, which was ordered and led by Heinrich Himmler, used revolting and fearsome methods in order to punish those in Germany who did not fit into Hitler’s concept of a clean ‘Aryan’ race, such as Jews and homosexuals and those who did not tolerate or believe in the Nazi’s ideologies, all possible without a need for evidence. Millions of others, consisting of men, woman and children were sent to concentration camps with dreadful and unsuitable conditions and were forced into hard labour. These inhumane actions done by the Gestapo members were all in an attempt to defeat and target those who criticise the Nazi’s views and overall play an important role in maintaining Nazi control over German society by letting fear drain the German
