Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
This means that a leader must have no mercy and punish hard to keep their people in line. This philosophy applies quite a lot to Hitler, for example, Kristallnacht (the night of broken glass). On the night of November 9, 1938, violence and hatred against Jews broke out across the German Reich and thousands of Jews were captured and killed. The morning after the massacres, 30,000 German Jewish men were arrested for the "crime" of being Jewish and sent to concentration camps, which was a harsh punishment. De Nacht der langen Messer (The night of the long knives) is another example and was a purge that took place in Germany in which Nazi soldiers carried out numerous political homicides on 77 leading figures of the left-wing Strasserist faction of the Nazi Party.
During the First Crusade, on the Christian’s way to defeat the Muslims in Jerusalem, they killed thousands of Jews in the Rhineland Massacres simply because of their non-Christian beliefs. Religion was not the only motive for killing Jews during the plague. The feudal lords used the anti semitism as a way to profit; they “took the cash that the Jews possessed,” (doc 7). The purpose of“The Cremation of Jews in Strasbourg, Germany” is to show the reasons of the Jewish massacres based on religion and desire for wealth. The religious and monetary motives to eliminate the Jews tore apart European society which continued for many years

“We are in the presence of a crime without a name,” said British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The Nazis were always remembered for the killing of over six million European Jews, but at the time, there was no name for this wicked act. After the war, many of these Nazi war criminals were convicted of an act called genocide, a word that did not exist before 1944. Genocide is the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group. Genocide occurs because of many factors that trigger this cruelty.
Genocide is the deliberate killing of a large group of people especially those of a particular ethnic group, religion, race or nation. When we hear the word genocide usually the first thing that comes to mind is the Jewish Holocaust. Tragically so, 18 years prior to the first boycott of Jewish owned businesses in 1933, hundreds of thousands of Armenians were slaughtered in what is now known as the Armenian holocaust. It all started centuries ago when the Armenians became the very first nation to claim Christianity as it 's national religion, 100 years later the Armenians were overruled by the Turkish (a Religiously Muslim people) and fell victim to discrimination laws. By the 1800’s the empire that was then controlled by Sultan Abdul Hamid powers had declined but still took hold of Armenia.
