The Final Solution May Have Lost The Nazis World War II Out of eleven million Jews living in Europe, six million were killed, including men, women, and children. Over the span of of less than ten years, one and a half million Jewish children experienced inhumane deaths.

Adolf Hitler is branded with the uprising of the Holocaust and this gives much of the world the belief that he was evil and that he killed millions of people. While he was responsible for the actions of the Final Solution, did he not alleviate the incredible economic crisis that Germany was under? The country was inflated and this is why Hitler suggested that the country switch to a dictatorship. People also have the belief that Hitler ran all of the concentration camps and that he was responsible for the undertaking of these particular domains, however; it was not Hitler who was in charge, but his SS leader.

The Holocaust was one of the worst events to ever happen to mankind. It was started by the Fuhrer of Germany, Adolf Hitler. He thought that the Aryan race was superior to every other race. He had a massive hatred for the Jewish race and decided to try and exterminate every living Jewish person. He killed around two-thirds of all the European Jews (Byers 10).
