Most commonly, the person would be sentenced to death. Other punishments included being sent to a concentration camp and being removed from the country (McNab 215). These punishments were both uncommon though, as Hitler thought it was a waste of time to keep anyone who tried to go against him alive (“How Did Nazis Use Propaganda”). Citizens could also be taken to court, where a proper trial would be held. It impossible to win any court cases though, since all German judges worked under Hitler and were required to do whatever he told them
Elie also saw more horrific things done to others by Nazis that he had questioned the kindness in all people. Jeanne witnessed more of social injustice and was just extremely disappointed in her country, but she really did not see anything that would lead her to believe that all people have a monster inside them. Between the experiences of both Elie and Jeanne, it seems that Elie had lost the most belief in humanity, because of the great amount of oppression that he faced from the Axis powers in Germany. “Suddenly the evidence
Another testament to Hitler 's death in the bunker a testimony of Hitler 's chief of security. A man named Heinz Linge. He tells the story of how he found Hitler dead in the bunker. The way he tells the story sounds a little something like this. First he told his driver to get the gas as said before.
These acts were being permitted because people were just not speaking up and letting it happen. The Nazis and Hitler wanted more than what they had so they took from people. The Jews were hated because people are believing things that were not true. It was not just then it also happening now the Holocaust may have been a big event but Silent Majority, Discrimination, and Hate has not changed at all. The Nazi’s of Germany were greedy because they believed Jewish people were the reason they did not have money.
This decision represents an isolationist viewpoint because it is based on a disdain for Article X, which provided for intervention into foreign nations by the League. All in all, the Great War did little to change the U.S. attitude of isolationism that most people held toward America’s role in the
This wasn’t true but many people believed him. In early 1933, Jews were being discriminated against. Nazi’s stopped Germans from shopping in any shop that was owned by a Jew, trying to make them become bankrupt. This was because of the belief that Jews were the cause of Germany’s economic problems after the First World
Why did Hitler hate the Jews so much? Nobody knows the exact reason why he was so cruel to them. Some people say things like “he was furious with his Jewish grandfather”, and many other things. Those things aren’t necessarily the reason but they may be a build up of hatred before he got very violent. Hitler hated the Jews so much, for many different reasons, that he'd torture them and most of the time he'd execute them.
Many historians believe that Hitler 's original hatred was from all of the people around him including his mayor and the various newspapers that spewed hatred for the Jews. When he was a young boy, only about 9% of the community that he lived in was actually Jewish these people constantly hated these minority that posed little to no harm to the community.
The lack of action was most likely because of the Allied focus on winning the war, but was also the general misunderstanding with which news of the Holocaust was in denial and disbelief that such thing could be happening on such a large scale. At Auschwitz, more than 2 million people were killed in the process of gathering people to start the camp. A large population of Jewish and non-Jewish prisoners worked in the camp there; though Jews were poisoned, thousands of others died of hunger or illness. During the summer of 1944, even as the events of D-Day (June 6, 1944), a large population of Hungary’s Jewish was forced to go to Auschwitz, and
In ‘The Book Thief’, people still ”who refused to believe that this small town on Munich's outskirts could be a target, but the majority of the population was well aware that it was not a question of if, but when" (Zusak 353). This is an example of external conflict because this is an actual war between religious beliefs and hate towards Jews. What I think about the ending of the book still left people with questions about how Liesel’s life after the war was? Did she get married to Max? Did Death give Liesel her book?
To start off, Americans weren’t affected by the Japanese Internment Camps as much as Germans, and those in surrounding countries, were by the Nazi Concentration Camps. As said in the American Propaganda Video, Japanese-Americans were, “...potentially dangerous…” and that the relocation of them was, “...with real consideration for the people involved.” Most Americans didn’t know the truth about the Japanese Internment Camps so they were, if anything, comfortable with the decision. However, this wasn’t the case with the Nazi Concentration Camps. Germans who didn’t remain loyal to Hitler were sent to a Concentration Camp, leaving thousands of Germans living in fear.
Furthermore, Japanese Americans and Jews were held in camps with security. George Takei quotes “Barb wired camps and gun points.” Concentration camps had no way of escaping because all of the guards and high barb wired surrounding them. Although, both events were taking people’s rights away and relocating them because they are a threat, overall Nazi concentration camps and Japanese internment camps are not essentially the same. Nazi concentration camps and Japanese internment camps are not essentially the same by the reason for moving the people, the treatment, and conditions of the camps.
The Nazis were oblivious about the devastation they caused as they were influenced by one of the most perilous motives: power, and the lack thereof. During the 1930s, the German citizens felt restricted by their circumstances as the country was in a bleak situation. Millions of citizens were affected by “the worldwide economic depression [which] provoked hyperinflation, social unrest and mass unemployment.” Hitler presented his party, the Nationalist Socialist German Workers’ Party or more commonly known as Nazi Party, as the solution to their problems. It is deeply ingrained into human nature that when one is hopeless, one tends to believe whoever offers the slightest amount of hope.
Nazi concentration camps and Japanese internment camps are not the same thing because Hitler made his camps out of hate, while internment camps were made out of fear. Internment camps were established after the Japanese bombed the U.S. Concentration camps just collected everyone who didn’t fit the idea of a ‘pure’ German. Even though they are similar, the German camps were made before things got bad in the war, and not because the country got bombed. Hitler wanted Germany to be perfect, so he put all Jews in camps or killed. Japanese
The Rape of Berlin was a war crime; it was not a necessary evil. History books only tell us so much compared to what actually happens, they tend to leave out some topics because they just don’t have enough evidence. Therefore, not many people are familiar to topics such as rape during World War II. History concentrated so much on the soldiers and how they survived in the cold, that it forgets about the innocent people who are in the middle of all the chaos. The women and children who get assaulted and violated in a war which they didn’t sign up for.
