The Holocaust. You have all heard this word before. It is an event widely acknowledged by almost all of humanity. Six million Jewish people were brutally murdered in a bloody genocide which is sure to go down in history. I reiterate, six million lives perished in a space of just six years. However a question remains to be unanswered; who is to blame? Many point their fingers toward one man; Adolf Hitler. However I, among others have taken a differing outlook on who is to blame, that outlook being that; the creation of history consists of a series of pathways, each leading to a different outcome. However regardless of which pathway is chosen the overall product of history will remain unchanged, as ensured by the effects of social conditioning.
Hitler is the number one person to blame for the Holocaust. Hitler was an awful man who was inhuman. He killed millions of people because of their religion, family's religion, and even some were deemed undesirable. Hitler’s army shared no mercy for people even children. These are only some of the reasons why Hitler is the NUMBER ONE person to blame for the Holocaust.
The Holocaust is one of the more well known events in history, it’s a really bad time to be in but this did happen to these people and for no reason. The Holocaust is when the Nazi’s from Germany attacked the Jews Adolf Hitler led this attack and he and his men wiped out approximately 6,000,000 Jews. The reason for this was Hitler entered Germany into the olympics thinking he would win easily. Well he soon found out that he wasn’t the best and he lost. He needed someone to blame for his loss so he decided to blame the Jews. He had no reason to go and blame Jewish people but he needed a escape route away from losing so, he and his men killed as many Jews as they could by starving, shooting, and bringing them on death walks. All the survivors of Hitler normally went to concentration camps where they were separated from their family. Such as their being a family of 3 a boy a father and a mother, normally the boy would go to one concentration camp the father went to another and the mother went to different one.
In January 1933, a man who had several failures in his life rose to power in Germany. That man was known as Adolf Hitler. A man with strong leadership skills and an even stronger ability to speak. He felt that Jews were the main problem and he wanted them exterminated. So Hitler made that his Final Solution and gave speeches about it. His speeches gained him and his party more and more followers. Nazi propaganda was very effective because it made Germans out to be the higher race and made Hitler out to be their Savior.
Could you imagine being one of the many victims that were beaten, starved, and tortured to death in a concentration camp? The Holocaust was a genocide that took place in Germany, lasting 4 years. The leader was Adolf Hitler, who believed there was a ‘Jewish Problem’. This genocide took place from 1941-1945, in concentration camps surrounding Poland. The Nazi Party was founded in 1919 and shortly after, Hitler became the leader in 1921. Adolf Hitler’s goal was to purify the German race. The holocaust includes dehumanization, organization, polarization. The Holocaust ruined the lives of so many innocent people as well as leaving a horrific dent in history by being the worst genocide in the world.
Propaganda, terror and repression played a significant role in the Nazi regime. Hitler used each to supplement and complement each other with the main focus to make Hitler appear a strong, powerful and all-knowing man who was in favour of the Nazi vision of the ‘national community’. This all impacted the German people by preserving support for Nazism and ensuring that the community that didn 't agree with the Nazi regime would not be heard by any
Hitler led a regime of German people to conform against other people with different religions, ethnicities, and sexualities. Hitler was an idol for Germany and Jewish people were the scapegoats for Germany’s problems. Hitler convinced and manipulated millions of people to fight for his agenda. Hitler directed the minds of his followers to support a cause that killed millions of people which is now known as the Holocaust. Hitler was able to execute his plans for the Holocaust because of the aid from others which was demonstrated by Nazi leaders, the German military, and the Axis powers.
Past leaders such as Andrew Jackson, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Marc Antony are evidence that society does not reward morality and good character in leadership. Society is drawn to leaders that have good rhetoric, propaganda, and charismatic personalities, and society supports them despite their immorality. Society is concerned about stability more than the morality of their leaders and will support immoral leaders in times of crisis to provide stability.
The Nazis killed two-thirds of all the Jews living in Europe. The Holocaust affected many people all around the world. It mostly affected the Jews the most. Many people including Allied countries, SS officers are responsible for this horrific event.
Hitler was wrong to use German kids for his own pleasure, and protection for his army. These kids’ lives were changed for the worse. Many kids did not even get to finish their education. Kids did not even get to do anything fun, because Hitler banned it. Hitler used youth to ensure that his legacy would be carried on, because their minds are easier to manipulate.
What horrible, unwitting dead human would you eat first? If I was a flesh-eating monster, in other words a ghoul, I would most definitely be named Adolf Hitler. He would be appealing because he created tons of meals for the starving ghouls of Ghulheim. This evil man was responsible for the deaths of over seven million innocent people. Adolf Hitler was the person behind the Holocaust. During the Holocaust millions of Jews and others involved were killed. Hitler was persuasive and convinced many innocent people to follow him and run the concentration camps. Concentration camps are for hard labor. Workers made people toil until they perished, and sometimes gased them to death if they were not working hard enough. Not only did people die,
When considering the events leading up to the Holocaust, it is important to understand there were various factors as well as people who played influential parts. The Holocaust could not have been caused by the genocidal intentions of a singular man such as Adolf Hitler. Mimi-Cecilia Pascoe states, “Regardless of any proof of Hitler’s intentions, he was not alone in his discriminatory views. Early 20th century Europe was full of similarly minded Anti-Semites; thus, Hitler’s attitude alone is an insufficient explanation for genocide” (2013, p.42). Though Hitler was thought to be the “head” of the Nazis genocidal tirade, he looked upon his popularity with much disquietude. Hitler feared the deterioration of his popularity by making un-popular decisions”, this led to him allowing other “high-ranking officials” would often influence political
In writing the book “The Good Ole Days: The Holocaust as Seen by its Perpetrators and Bystanders”, Ernst Klee successfully illustrates, historically, that the citizens of Nazi Germany played many roles, had similar motives for participating, and mostly had an awareness of the cruelty and barbarity of their actions during the Shoah. Ernst Klee, through first-hand accounts in diaries, photographs, letters and reports, successfully exposes the events of the holocaust and the actions of the persons involved.
The Nazi took control of many people’s lives. The Nazis has a totalitarian government which “state that regulates and controls nearly every aspect of the public and private sectors” (Mastin, 2008). If the government controls every private sector, this means that they control the lives of the civilians as well. This emphasizes the power of the government, and how people couldn’t stop the Nazis from pursuing their goal : to get rid of all the people they demise. Power eventually enslaved the people that the Nazis hate, and that created the mass genocide. Also, tyranny impacted the Holocaust in a major way. When the Nazis took charge in office, they passed many laws that restricted the freedom of the people Nazis disliked (Reiland, 2017). This shows that the Nazis used their power to an advantage and created laws that limited freedom. The powerful Nazi political party came to controlling people’s lives and caused less freedom. This limitation of freedom came to a creation of the
Hitler was the main enabler for the Holocaust happening, he was “The Big Man in Office” and whatever he said others followed along. He gave orders such as capturing Jews and sending them to concentration camps, having guards to watch over the Jew while in concentration camps or even teaching children about Nazi propaganda. Many of the German soldiers listened and obeyed Hitler’s
