The Nazi party followed their beliefs that there was a superior race called the Aryan race and used Charles Darwin’s theory of Social Darwinism to prosecute these groups. In this essay I will discuss the prosecution of the Jewish people, the homosexuals and the gypsies (Roma) and how and why they did this. The persecution of the Jewish people began when the Nazi Party blamed them for spreading defeatism nearing the end of WW1.
Government policies dramatically changed in the 1920s which were a consequence to the Treaty of Versailles since the period was so soon after the war and many of the policies concerned post-war aspects. The Allies have varied views and in many cases Britain is the country to be in a different position in terms of the perceived aftermath of the Treaty of Versailles. The Dawes Plan in 1924 was a policy agreed by the Allies to cut the total amount of reparations and allow Germany a realistic time frame to repay the amounts owed to them. It also proposed the removal of French troops from the Ruhr in Germany as the reparations which they were demanding payment of were no longer needed to be paid.

Analyzing such a movement involves background on the economic situation that succeeded first World War I. The conclusion of the war led to the defeat of the Triple Alliance involving Germany, Austria- Hungary, and Italy, with Germany being held responsible for ceding land and rebuilding Europe according to the Treaty of Versailles. Thus, confronted with reparation payments that were unaffordable, Germany began mass printing millions of new German Marks.

Furthermore, as the United States succumbed to the great depression, they sought to retract the loans made to Germany.
English commanders underestimated the size of the American continent and the lack of infrastructure. In other words, they had poorly map skills. They also underestimated the colonists; they did not have a logical war aim. In addition, supplying the British army was much more difficult task because they had to import the food from Britain and the British had never succeeded in blockading the American ports. Moreover, Britain suffered from national debts throughout the war.
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.
