At the end of World War I, the Germans were angry and bitter that they lost the war. One of them was a Austrian corporal, the infamous Adolf Hitler, who rose to power and became the Chancellor of Germany, Führer (leader) of Germany, and also a leader of the Nazis party. Hitler, along with the other Nazis members, started the Holocaust, a genocide during WWII where millions of people were imprisoned and killed, especially Jews. He was also involved in WWII, being one of the three leaders of the Axis Powers. We feel that the Holocaust is a horrifying event in human history because so many people died. The Holocaust is important because it allows us to see how terrifying it was and to make sure that something similar to it will not happen again. It is also important because we want to remember all the victims of it.
Many studies have been made about why the Jews had to go through the Holocaust and why did Hitler target the Jews and not anybody, but my belief is that Hitler had a deep hatred for the Jews, the Jews were “invading” Germany, and/or the Jews had or took all the
During the 1930’s and 40’s Nazi Germany was a dictatorship ruled by Adolf Hitler he was a cruel dictator who had a goal to eliminate all european jews this shows in “Law,Justice,and the Holocaust” where it says that he and The Nazis mainly targeted people of the Jewish faith, at the end of the war they successfully killed six million jewish men,women, and children.This event was known as the holocaust. Hitler was a very cruel and hated man by the people who weren’t being schooled by the Nazis.
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.
In the Holocaust, Nazi killed numerous people, both Jewish and non- jewish. Hitler was the cause of the Holocaust. Countless people suffered because of Adolf Hitler, the leader of Nazi Germany. There were few survivors in the Holocaust, they went through a lot during that period of time. The people, lived in ghettos and also were transported to concentration camps, where they died from gas chambers, forced labor, etc,. It was a hard time in life for people in Germany.
After being named Chancellor, Hitler began what is known as the Holocaust. The Holocaust started on January 30, 1933 and lasted until May 8, 1945. The Holocaust was the mass murder of 6 million Jews (1.5 million of them being children). The Germans started burning the books that the Jews had written, removing Jews from their occupations and their schools, and taking their businesses and properties(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The Jews were forced from their houses to go to live in ghettos away from all society(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The ghettos were surrounded by barbed wire and high walls so the Jews couldn’t leave(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The German Army took up the western half of Poland in 1939(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The Army expanded Hitler’s empire in the spring and summer of 1940(An Introductory History of the Holocaust- Jewish Virtual Library). They had conquered Norway, Denmark, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, and Luxemburg(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). After German religious leaders protested, Hitler put an end to the Holocaust in August 1941(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). In 1933, Jews in Germany were about 525,000 (1%) of the total German population(The Holocaust-World War 2). Between 1933 and 1939, hundreds of thousands of the Jews who could leave Germany, did, those who couldn’t, stayed in fear(The Holocaust-World War 2). Evidence has shown hatred towards the Jews long before the Holocaust(The Holocaust-World War 2). Hitler blamed the Jews for the defeat of the war in 1918(The Holocaust-World War 2). After the death of President Paul Von Hidenburg in 1934, Hitler made himself Germany’s supreme
Corrupt aspects of Man’s nature are shown in William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth as well as through the ambition of Hitler and his desire to overthrow Germany and eliminate all Jews. This is shown by both Macbeth and Hitler’s murderous ambitious attitudes to do whatever it takes to become one of the most powerful people of their time.
Everyone who has learned about World War II should know about the Holocaust. The Holocaust was during the same period of World War II. “What is it called the Holocaust?” you may ask. The Holocaust originates from the Greek language and means “completely burnt offering to God.” How does this relate to the Holocaust where almost 8 million Jewish people died? In this essay, you will be informed about the main leader of the Nazis, why saying that Hitler only captured Jews is historically inaccurate, concentration camp treatment, and five atrocious experiments done by the Nazi soldiers to innocent prisoners.
"Concentration camps, that's what you call, uh, a camp what actually is annihilation...they annihilate people, actually." This quote by Abraham Lewent sums up the story of the Holocaust and what an egregious time it was. The genocide of over six million people during World War II was the Holocaust. It all started with a man named Adolf Hitler and his rise to power and the German people who were desperate to believe anything they were told. The overall causes of the Holocaust were fear, anti-Semitism and the stages of the Holocaust.
During WWII, the anti-Semitic Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler emphasized purity of race and opposed any forms of variation in the racial distribution of his country. To achieve his goals of racial purity, Hitler began to unfairly assert that the reason for the humiliating defeat of Germany was the betrayal of the Jewish population in the country. Through his memoir and propaganda, he provoked the public to discriminate against the Jews, or even eliminate them completely in the country. In addition, Hitler utilized many unethical and unjust means against the Jews such as destroying all the books written by Jews, and shutting down all Jewish-owned business. He even enacted the law to humiliate the Jews, and make them to become the targets of the public by forcing them to wear a yellow star mark. Hitler’s acts to the Jews were completely unethical and disrespectful of human dignity. Furthermore, Hitler’s massive killing of the Jewish people with poison gas in the concentration camps in Germany, and his allied territories were unlawful because all the Jewish victims were innocent citizens and had their human rights to live. About 6 millions of Jews were killed during the Holocaust, and that tragedy was all caused by people’s hatred and selfishness. Today, although the German government acknowledged their responsibility for the crime committed during WWII and provided financial assistance to the victims’ families, the massive illegal killing of Jewish people were
The Holocaust was a period of time when Adolf Hitler spread his ideology. He formed a group called the Nazis which were Germans. They hated Jewish people and had the idea that Jewish people ought to die. 6 million Jewish people died during this period of time. The Holocaust started in 1933 and ended in 1945. Hitler had power over everyone. Adolf Hitler gained his power by promising that he was going to end reparations, create a German empire and by breaking the Versailles Treaty. He also used a lot of propaganda to gain power. He developed a lot of hate towards Jewish people. Members of the Nazi organization were responsible for the Holocaust because they followed Hitler’s will and manipulated people. German citizens were also responsible for
"I was a body. Perhaps less than that even: a starved stomach. The stomach alone was aware of the passage of time." (Wiesel 50) This was a quote from a Holocaust survivor, Ellie Wiesel. He published a book many years later, to tell his side of the story. The Holocaust was an extermination plan for the Jewish faith and its followers. The Holocaust was under the control of a Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler. Hitler was an anti-Semite, meaning he not only had hatred towards the Jews but he showed it as well. As of today, the Holocaust genocide by far, was the most horrifying event for the Jews as well as the nation. The Holocaust killed many innocent lives ranging from infants to the elderly. Nevertheless the Holocaust was the top killing genocide, there
He wanted a "pure" empire and for that to happen Jews were not to be a part of it nor of anything. He killed them because he thought it was his moral obligation or that God would have wanted him to do the same. He blamed the Jews for their loss in the world war one which was not true but many of his people believed him because he was their leader who wanted best for his people. By telling his people that the Jews were responsible for their huge loss he created an enemy. He did this as probably a comeback to let his people know that he was still powerful and to get reelected. He let them know that the Jews would suffer for they did and so he would become a hero among his own. Hitler mostly targeted people that went against the social norms for instance homosexuals, gypsies and more. He banished them from jobs, universities and sis not let them run businesses and he mentally and physically tortured them for not only his own personal reasons but also to create a unity among the Germans so they found a common enemy to turn up
The Holocaust, considered as the deadliest genocide in history, was a genocide in which approximately six million Jews were massacred by Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany. The development of this mass killing is blamed upon the dictator of Germany reigning at that time, Hitler, but it has been subject to two very different perspectives, functionalist, and intentionalist. The intentionalist perspective declares that Hitler had methodically planned out his actions and had a grand scheme that he had put into motion, while the functionalists argue such a plot did not exist.
The most devastating time this world has ever seen happened in 1940. Throughout the 1920s to the 1930s is when Hitler decided he was going to kill and traumatize all the Jewish people. He continued planning until the 1940s, he gathered together with a large group that agreed with killing Jewish people. During this time of misery a lot of people were wondering what was going on in Adolf Hitler’s head, and some to this day still wonder why he did this treacherous thing. When his mother had terminal breast cancer her doctor was Jewish and she ended up dying, numerous people questioned if he still had anger. Various Jewish people were not liked by Hitler and his army. Hitler had bad childhood influences
