TASK 1- WWII ESSAY How did Nazis control the people through the use of concentration camps, rallies and glorification of Hitler? How was each of these means used to control German society and secure Hitler’s position and power? During the period of World War 2. Hitler and the Germans wanted to exterminate all Jews. They hated anyone who was of Jewish decent.
Out of the two world wars, World War II is known to be the bloodiest and brutal war. The main reason this is to believed is because to the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the time period where many were persecuted for their beliefs and race. Hitler is who is to blame for the Holocaust, he is the one who organized all the horrific things done to the people who did not fall under his Master Race. Despite the many theories about the purpose of the Holocaust, the real purpose make those who weren’t members of the Master Race fear the Nazi Regime, to force them to obey the Nazi’s without question.
Dehumanization makes people lose the will to live and made it easier for the Nazi’s to exterminate the Jews. Not only was dehumanization a way to gain authority over people, but it allowed the Nazi’s to view the prisoners as something other than humans. Hitler used dehumanization in an attempt to achieve his ends and was displayed throughout the novel Night in many ways including selections, being numbered, and shaving the prisoner’s heads. To begin, human selection was one of the first steps the reader saw of the dehumanization process. In the novel Night, specifically page twenty-nine, Wiesel wrote “An SS came toward us wielding a club.
How many of the deaths in the Holocaust were because of individuals speaking out at officials? During the Holocaust, the Nazi police would hurt anyone who spoke out at them. Night follows the journey of Elie Wiesel and his family in the different concentration camps during World War II. Elie guides us through the horrors of the concentration camps and the horrific actions carried out by Nazi officers. Maus tells the life story of Vladek Spiegelman’s life before going to the concentration camp through his son, Art Spiegelman.
One...Two…, he counted.” (Weisel 65), which shows us how the Nazi’s would beat the Jewish people within the concentration camps. During the time that Elie was in Buna, Idek made Elie lie stomach down on a box and he whipped Elie and gave him 25 lashes. This was very cruel in that Idek punished Elie for knowing something that he knew about, but should not have
A concentration camp is a place where P.O.W (Prisoners of War) were placed usually used for criminals or people with types of religions that the army was against (e.g. Jews etc.) The primary purpose of these camps was the methodical killing of millions of innocent people. The concentration camps were administered since 1934 by Concentration Camps Inspectorate which in 1942 was merged into SS-Wirtschafts-Verwaltungshauptamt and were guarded by SS-Totenkopfverbände (SS-TV). The first concentration camp first erected in Germany by the Nazi party and Hitler when he was announced and or
Dehumanization The Nazi’s dehumanized the Jews with the Nuremburg laws. Such as Jews can’t marry or have a sexual relationship with a German. Jews were stripped away from their human rights. Making Jewish people dig trenches to actual put the people that the Nazi had killed in the trenches or it would be their deathbed. Organization Mass killing of the Jews.
By blaming the Jews for Germany’s economic crisis and their defeat in World War I, Hitler was able to target the Jews as the country’s main enemy. According to him, the Jews were liable for many of Germany’s issues. As Hitler’s following grew, so did his power over Germany. During his time in power, over six million Jews were killed in execution camps. Many people helped Hitler to
An example of a prince that would not be ideal in Machiavelli 's eyes would be Adolf Hitler. Adolf was the leader of the Nazi Party and a German politician. Adolf was extremely anti-jew, so bad that he made concentration camps to have all of these jews killed. They were gathered from all over Germany to be put in camps and killed or tortured. According to Machiavelli’s standards, Adolf had part of a good leader right.
The purpose of these trials were to bring Nazi War criminals to justice. The International Military Tribunal was representing 23 nations and they put the Nazi War criminals on trial. Before the trials even began, Hitler had committed suicide leaving his partner in crime, Goering, to face the charges, but he too had also committed suicide. During these trials, 22 of the Nazi War leaders were charged with waging of war of aggression, the “crimes against humanity”, mass murder of 11 million people. People who were executed were also burned at the concentration camp, Dachau, where many of their victims lives were taken.
“In the ghettos, the nazis used the Jewish councils to communicate their orders”. The Nazi soldiers used this administrative system to create destruction among themselves. This would take some of the pressure off the soldiers and make the Jews torture themselves. Overall, the concentration camps were the most brutal and notorious camps throughout
After the occupation of Poland in late 1939 the Nazi started capturing the Jews and putting them into the camps where they started to talk about the “Final Solution” or the end of all the Jews, and possibly of the whole world. The Nazi tried to hide this plan as much as possible, to not seem cruel when they actually were. Overall, Nazi built the concentration camps to detain the ‘enemies of the state’ and to persecute the
That shows how strict the Nazis were on the Jews and how they put the fear of death in them to intimidate them. This is also a technique to keep them in the camps so that they would be too scared to even try to leave. The Nazis believed that they were the dominant race and that they needed to rid the world of any other race or a lesser race according to them. The way they planned on riding the world of these races is by fire or by toxic gasses. And that breaks article three which states “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and
Inmates were broken after this relentless torture; we wonder why there wasn’t a mass revolt within the camps, and this is probably why, they had no will to resist oppression anymore. The sickest part of this all is that of the mass dehumanization played surprisingly by the entire people of Deutschland, now not all people played these sick game; most of the aggression was enforced by the German army. Moishe the Beadle was one of the first to experience this cruelty, “The Jews were ordered to get off... They were forced to dig huge trenches. ...
In these torture camps Jews were forced to intense labor, starvation and torture. However, the most inhumane events however were the human tests. Prisoners were submerged into ice water to see the effects of hypothermia and injected with chemicals and poisons to test the effectiveness. However most sadly the main use for these camps were mass killing. Jews and others were lined up into gas chambers and then exterminated.
