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 reason he provided for the Germans loss of WW1 was because of the Jews of Germany, specifically the bankers. When he came to power he organized one of the largest mass murdering schemes in history, that being the Holocaust. In states in his book Mein Kampf, “Rational anti-Semitism, however, must lead to systematic legal opposition.…Its final objective must unswervingly be the removal of the Jews altogether.”. Hitler further emphasized his anti-Semitic feelings by passing the Nuremberg Laws. Encyclopedia Britannica describes this law as, “the Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour and the Law of the Reich Citizen—became the centerpiece of anti-Jewish legislation and a precedent for defining and categorizing Jews in all German-controlled lands.” The law also set strict regulations on marriage and business.
What is clear is that the genocide of the Jews was the decade of Nazi policy, under the rule of Adolf Hitler. The "Final Solution" was implemented in stages. After the Nazi party rise to power, state-enforced racism resulted in anti-Semitism, boycotts, Aryanization, and finally the "Night of Broken Glass" pogrom, all of which aimed to remove the Jews from German society.. Liberation- The Liberation was the release of the concentration camp inmates. In 1944, Allied forces entered Majdanek, and “rescued” the Jews. The USSR, and the USA came through Germany and Poland and set the camp’s inhabitants free.
Speer, as Hitler’s ‘closest’ friend, the Party’s head architect and the Nazi Party’s Minister for Armaments is clear that he was eminently involved in the plan to exterminate the Jewish race, to thus achieve Hitler’s dream of a pure Aryan race. Why was Albert Speer named the ‘Good Nazi’ after the Nuremberg Trials, denying all knowledge of the ‘Final Solution’, but accepted responsibility for actions of the regime? His true lying ability is expressed in these word “of all the dreadful things, I knew nothing”. There were many events that express Speer’s involvement in Anti-Semitic movements, and his ability to liar towards his participation in any of it: 1. Architect - ‘Germania’ strengthened the relationship between Speer and Hitler – a project involving the removal of thousands of Jews into camps.
Anti-semitism dates as far back as the Roman Empire where Jews were hated for their beliefs as Christianity rose to be the most prominent religion in Europe. Anti-Semitism, in its simplest and vaguest terms is the pursuit to insult, slander, degrade, and persecute Jews. The Nazi’s used Anti-Semitism in order to propel their cause further. With concentration camps, the Star David that they had to wear, and all the blame for the impact of World War I, they turned the German civilians against the Jewish community. Human nature is prevalent in the Nazi’s hatred towards the Jews.
Germany was looking for someone to point the finger at for their regression and Hitler gave them the perfect victims. Hitler twisted and turned Germany from a struggling democracy into a harsh dictatorship, just by defining and separating one group differently from the rest. Hitler promoted radical ideas that he forced onto Germany’s society and gave them a specific definition of what a Jew
Hitler believed the Jews were responsible for all of the problems and evils in the world. He also believed they were responsible for Germany 's defeat in the war. He wrote in his autobiographical book, Mein Kampf, that Jews were Germany’s true enemy. In his eyes they were not a race, but an anti-race. The Jews of Germany were no longer considered citizens of Germany.
The Holocaust was a time of devastation and corruption; it was a time of cruelty. Adolf Hitler, who started the epidemic against the Jews, tried to make the world “perfect.” Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi Party. Hitler used the Jews as a scapegoat for Germany’s economic problems which ultimately led to World War II. Hitler not only became a powerful and influential man, but also a judgmental man. Hitler blinded people with his influence.
Seeds of Hatred Bloomed “In my will it will one day be written that nothing is to be engraved on my tombstone but ‘Adolf Hitler.’ I shall create my own title for myself in my name itself”-Adolf Hitler. Hitler’s actions during World War II fulfilled his words. His name brings memories of totalitarian dictatorship, cruel torture, and mass murder of millions of innocent people, Germans and Jews alike. Hitler’s hatred and beliefs of racial superiority brainwashed an entire nation, resulting in a war with a history written in the blood of helpless victims. What could have twisted Hitler’s mind into the psychotic, murderous maniac that he became?
“A major priority of the Nazi Party was to eliminate racially inferior groups in Germany and across Europe. Discuss how and why they did this” The Nazi part prosecuted many racial and social groups during their reign from 1933-1945. The Nazi party followed their beliefs that there was a superior race called the Aryan race and used Charles Darwin’s theory of Social Darwinism to prosecute these groups. In this essay I will discuss the prosecution of the Jewish people, the homosexuals and the gypsies (Roma) and how and why they did this. The persecution of the Jewish people began when the Nazi Party blamed them for spreading defeatism nearing the end of WW1.
Adolf Hitler felt that Jews dishonored German culture and that Aryans were the superior race. Therefore, he devised a systematic and deliberate plan which was to completely destroy the Jewish population of Europe. The Germans attempted this by putting Jews into concentration camps. The largest was the Auschwitz concentration camp complex. German authorities created three central camps near the Polish city of Oswiecim.
The Holocaust was a persecution and eventual mass murder of Jews during the Nazi regime in the World War II. An estimate of six million Jews were killed, all because of their religion and beliefs. The Nazi thought they were the superior race, and Jews were “inferior” as well as a danger to the ‘perfect’ German community. Gradually, the German government was filled with people who believed that Jews needed to be purged. They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes.
The Jews were not the only victims of persecution and murder by the Nazis. Homosexuals, Gypsies, Clergy, people with a physical or mental disabilities, Jehovah 's Witnesses, Poles and other Slavs were also victims. Those are many of different type of people that the Nazis had it out for. I only thought that the Nazis wanted to kill the Jews. There is evidence as early as 1919 that Hitler had a strong hatred for Jews.
Hitler’s final solution was to kill everyone who wasn’t part of the master race. The holocaust is the significance on how racism affects people. It makes them believe they are inferior and cant fight against it. Making others feel less superior is how racism begins. With the help of political officials who make laws and regulations that benefit them thus affecting minority
