In 1940 more Jews are deported to concentration camps in Poland (Yeatts 12). Germany created 8 concentration camps from 1939-1940 to hold all types of groups (Concentration Camps, 1932-1942). At the camps, many horrible conditions were experienced. The Nazis were very cruel (Yeatts 13). The camps were scary, you never what was gonna happen and when.
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.
The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. The Nazi Party wanted to separate the Jews from the non-Jewish population, so they established ghettos. The ghettos allowed the Nazis to organize the Jews so deportation was easier, quicker, and allowed more Jews to be deported quicker (U.S. Holocaust 3). It was also a way to isolate and control the Jews (Altman 8).
Four command groups aimed to gather all Jews from different cities for them to be shot with automatic weapons and by the end of 1942 the number of murdered Jewish people because of the command groups went up to 1.3 million (The Holocaust). Despite the fact Germans also killed other ethnical groups, the Jewish received this so called special treatment, Sonderbehandlung in German, where all of them, no matter men, women or kids, were to be killed with poisonous gas (The Holocaust). For the Jewish people, different types of camps were established: death camps (around 3.5 million Jews killed in these camps), concentration camps and slave camps (for strong and younger Jews) (The Holocaust). In the slave and the concentration camps, for example, the Jews had to work in factories till late at night, provided only with shelter and some type of food, usually some kind of watery soup with small amount of vegetables, in order to stay alive (The Holocaust). The harsh conditions and the violence seen by millions changed these people and left them with the memory and the trauma from
The Reich Central Office was created to centralize all the persecution of the groups in Germany. After World War II had started, the Gypsies were subjected to many deportation orders out of their homes, and into concentration and death camps. Himmler had ordered the deportation orders to happen in 1942. Many of the Gypsies went to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp (Schnellbrief). When they got to the camp, they didn’t have to go through the selection process and were directed to go to a family camp set up in Auschwitz-Birkenau.
(Geary, 2000). Among the discrimination against the Jews during the era of Adolf Hitler was forcing the Jews to sew the star of David on the external part of the cloths, introduced the Nuremberg Law and Jews were prohibited from moving freely around Germany. The first discrimination against Jews was they were forced to sew a yellow star of David at the external part of the cloths. The yellow star of David is a star which is painted in black on yellow cloth which is the size of a palm of a hand and has six sharp corners (Vashem, 1942). The forcing of Jews to wear a yellow star as a symbol was Nazi
Then in 1939, they were no longer allowed to own any gold or silver (Steele 26). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. One of the reasons that the Jew were forced into the ghettos was because Hitler wanted to separate them from the rest of the population (Ghettos). Another reason was that the ghettos were a holding place for the Jews. The Jews would live there in the ghettos.
Hitler thought that killing millions of people was what he should do. World War II was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945 and the Holocaust was a catastrophe during that period of time. The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews and other groups of people by the Nazi regime and its collaborators (“VICTIMS OF THE NAZI ERA: NAZI RACIAL IDEOLOGY”). The Nazi Racial Ideology, which was introduced by Hitler, was an essential idea in Germany during the Holocaust. The Nazi Racial Ideology was a theory that allowed people to evaluate people by their racial group.
Nazi Death Marches During WWII, Hitler ordered for all Jews to be taken to work camps, where they were forced to work in with little to no food. Most of the time the Jews would be making stuff for the German army such as, tools or clothing. The Jews had to have a strong spirit, or they would perish. But, towards the end of the war American troops invaded Germany, finding the work camps. Afraid of the American troops finding the work camps; Hitler ordered all work camps to be evacuated to death camps deep in Germany.
The final solution was the plan to kill off as many Jews as possible before the war ended and Adolf Eichmann was in charge of that. So Simon brought him to justice, and even though some escaped their trials at Nuremberg, some were
