Their economy was crashing and they just lost a major war. Everyone was looking for someone to point blame at. Hitler gave German citizens someone to blame and planned to purify his country. The Jewish people were very well known for their economic stability and this led to the idea that they were stealing the Germans money and creating the depression. The German citizens began to agree with Hitler’s idea of exterminating the Jewish population in Germany.
Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering” summarizes the thinking behind Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. Intro to SD2: Intolerance is another way the Nazis justified the Holocaust. The differences between the Jewish people and the average German was pointed out with great hostility upon the rise of the Nazi Party.
The circumstances that led up to the Holocaust was the Treaty of Versailles after the Germans lost in WW1. Germany was blamed for the war and were subject to pay very heavy reparations; the cause of these heavy reparations put Germany in a very bad state economically. Due to all of this, Hitler preached that the Jews were to blame and he promised to fix Germany during his political race for leader of Germany. An unmotivated Germany believed Hitler and did everything to elect him because of his very convincing speeches to make Germany a vast and dominating empire once again. The Jews lived very hard lives after the election of Hitler; they were subject to very harsh ways of life and it started out with the release of the Nuremberg Laws.
That is exactly how it was when Hitler slowly came to power in Germany and began to take over. Hitler blamed the Jews for all of the problems in Germany. He told people that they had too much power over the whole of Germany and that soon enough it would not be unique to its native customs.
We are aware that during WWII there were many horrible things that Nazi soldiers had done to the Jewish people. However, they had been brainwashed by Adolf Hitler and his cabinet’s “false” knowledge. There were few that kept their own knowledge and attempted to save many Jewish people. With belief that the possession of knowledge does carry ethical responsibility, I believe that both Nazi solders were doing what they believed was ethically right. For Nazi soldiers, that being told to kill Jewish people by a higher authority meant that all they were being taught was false and biased information.
After World War I, Germany, forced to take responsibility for the war, was in political and economic turmoil. During this time, an infamous Adolf Hitler rose to power, promising a new and prosperous Germany and accused the Jewish population for causing Germany’s problems. Hitler’s rise to power marked a shift from mere discrimination to outright violence against the Jewish people (Wiener). Hitler and the Nazis proceeded to take measures to strip Jews of their rights to create a Germany free from "racially inferior" people. The 1935 Nuremberg laws banned German Jews from marrying or having relations with the German “master race” (“The Holocaust”).
(“Introduction to the Holocaust." ) The reason that the Nazis came to power in Germany in January 1933, and they believed that the Germans were “racially superior” and the Jews were “inferior”. ("Introduction to the Holocaust.") The Nazi creates a plan to annihilate the Jewish people called de “Final Solution”. (“Final Solution”) The way in which they killed was the most cruelty and coldness ever happen in all the history of the world.
HOW EXTENSIVE WAS AMERICAN CORPORATE INVOLVEMENT (IBM) IN THE NAZI HOLOCAUST? The Nazi Holocaust was one of the most barbaric and inhumane acts of violence that had ever occurred in human history and changed the world in all its ethical concepts. The Nazi Holocaust was the systematic persecution and murder, bureaucratically organized and financed by the German State, of six million Jews by the Nazi regimes and its contributors between 1941-1945. Adolf Hitler, an Austrian born-German politician, and militiaman was the leader of the National Socialist German Party of Workers (NAZI), who later was named Chancellor of the German Reich by German president Paul von Hindenburg in 1933. Hitler’s hatred towards the Jewish and minorities community started at a very young age.
In the movie it is never said that the nazis forced them into these horrible living conditions; they say it’s their “natural state”. That way, German people get a very negative image of Jews, it helps promoting anti-semitism. Hitler rationalized his crimes by altering information. He made jewish people look like vermin and then claimed that it was necessary to get rid of them, so he could exterminate them without people being too shocked. Changing information gives people a positive image of a bad
