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.
The Holocaust and World War II changed the way we should look at people with different religions, because what happened to the Jews shouldn 't happen to anybody on the earth. Back in January 1933 Adolf Hitler persuaded that he could change the everything, so the people of Germany united an army which is called the Nazi. When Hitler made the Nazi army it was double the size of the army, before Hitler was in control of the army. Then the army started to take valuable, and privileges from the jews. Soon after the army started to capture the innocent jews.
Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
The Holocaust....even the name brings darkness to everyone. This event not only changed history but society as well. Though the event happened in Europe, the pain, message, and tragedy was known to the entire world. Before the Holocaust, and during the phase where the Nazism party got introduced, the Jews living in Germany and the other never thought that their country would ever discriminate them and kick them out. Some still continued living in Germany, as they thought the Nazism idea would extinquish soon.
Together, they negotiated an agreement that Eichmann would allow the departure of a few thousand Jews to Palestine in exchange for silence about the mass extermination of Hungarian Jews. So it seems like Eichmann’s idea was a sort of hierarchy of the Zionist Jews, who were in his own words ‘the best biological material’, and Eastern European Jews, whom he did not care for. In fact, Arendt states that he was bothered by the way Jews were treated; and not the idea of murder, but the idea of German Jews being murdered. Eichmann was not the only one who shared this view; many other Nazis did as well. This sort of conscience which rebelled (if at all) only against the murder of people who came from their own culture is even more disturbing, since it divides people not simply by race, but by their cultural and spiritual achievements – as if the people from the Eastern countries were less human not simply because they were Jews or communists, but because they were without a culture.
In addition, Himmler understand the power of police and their ability to sway people's minds. He was able to persuade it Hitler to allow the police force and SS to join knowing that it would allow the Nazi party to achieve their long term goal, also known as the “Final Solution” (“Heinrich Himmler”). The “Final Solution” was a plan devised by Himmler himself to eliminate all the Jews from Europe and gain racial supremacy (“Himmler, Heinrich” 90). On October 4, 1943 in Poznan Himmler gave a speech in front of high ranking SS Generals. During the speech he was quoted
Gaunt Faces and physically and mentally exhausted bodies plagued the majority of the Jewish- German population from 1933 to 1945. As gruesome as the Holocaust was it was a major turning point in not only German but global history. The culprit? Adolf Hitler and his handful of dysfunctional political accomplices. To emphasize on the statements above the Holocaust caused approximately 6 million deaths of innocent Jews and other “unsatisfactory” members of society including the handicapped and gypsies.
The Final Solution May Have Lost The Nazis World War II Out of eleven million Jews living in Europe, six million were killed, including men, women, and children. Over the span of of less than ten years, one and a half million Jewish children experienced inhumane deaths. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, German Nazis were finding more efficient ways for the mass murdering of whomever they pleased, the main victims being Jews. The Final Solution was the plan for the largest genocide in history and became Germany 's main goal during World War II. Even before the Final Solution, anti-Semitism was a common occurrence in Europe and only intensified when Hitler became chancellor of Germany in 1933.
During the Holocaust millions of people were killed by the Nazis because they were not the ideal race. The Nuremberg Trials were held in Nuremberg, Germany. The judges of the trials were from Great Britain, the Soviet Union, the United States, and France. These trials were held to bring justice to all the lives lost during World War two. After the Holocaust, the Nuremberg Trials were held to bring justice to Nazi officials, Industrialists, but failed to punish those who escaped.
In the past, innocent people got persecuted by the hands of other individuals because of hatred. These terrible actions started because of the pure hatred, lack of knowledge, and people didn’t fight back. Since, this happened people have lost their lives for example 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and shooting that is going on. “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate”. Nazi ideology started Propaganda causing discrimination and hate which justified genocide, which led 6.3 millions Jews killed.
