So the only way to fix this problem was to start a system of eradication of Jews. This was the cause of the Holocaust. By 1945, the Germans and their collaborators killed nearly two out of every three European Jews as part of the Nazi policy to murder the Jews of Europe. He hated Jewish people, gypsies, homosexuals, disabled people and twins. He wanted to direct German aggression off the government and used those groups of people as scapegoats, causing one of the greatest tragedies in history.
Holocaust happened because Hitler and the Nazis were racist. They believed the German people were a 'master race', who were superior to others. They even created a league table of 'races' with the Aryans at the top and with Jews, Gypsies and black people at the bottom. These 'inferior' people were seen as a threat to the purity and strength of the German nation. When the Nazis came to power they persecuted these people, took away their human rights and eventually decided that they should be exterminated.
Piles of corpses, bones, and human ashes were found. Thousands of starving survivors that were and were not Jews were also found (“Aftermath”). Jewish survivors had no desire to return home. The anti-Semitism in the parts of Germany caused many Jews to not want to return home. The ones, who returned home, lived in fear.
The Final Solution was Nazi Germany's plan during World War II to exterminate the Jewish people in German-occupied Europe, which resulted in the most deadly phase of the Holocaust, the destruction of Jewish communities in continental Europe. From 1938 until June 1941, the Nazis set out to get rid of the Jews in Germany and its occupied territories. When they were unable to expel most of the Jews, they forced them into ghettos pending other solutions. After the invasion of the Soviet Union, in 1941 the Nazi government turned to the plan to exterminate European Jews. Heinrich Himmler was the chief architect of the plan, which came to be called the Final Solution of the Jewish question.
While the Hebrew people were being held prisoner for no apparent reason, their property and religious centers were plundered and destroyed. Hundreds of Jews died, from the piracy and many committed suicide. Germany began to conquer other countries. Hitler was an extremely sick, disgusting man who sought to eliminate non-Aryan individuals. He took over several countries for the sole purpose of getting rid people who weren’t good enough for him.
Nazism is single handedly one of the most heinous acts of crime in world history. Nazis, which originated in Germany, was led by the chancellor of Germany at the time, Adolf Hitler. Hitler won his place of power in 1933 out of the Nazi party. By 1939, he had reassembled Germany’s military and invaded Poland for takeover. He convinced most of Germany’s public that Jews were devil worshipers, were evil, and caused the economy to decline.
He believed that Jewish people were inferior to other human begins. Hitler beliefs and ideas caused him to create an army called the Nazi to help carry out his plan. The Nazis followed Adolf’s plan to kill Jewish people by creating concentration camps and gas chambers. The Nazis tortured and starved the Jewish people to their deaths. Out of fear and to avoid death themselves, many German civilians accepted Adolf Hitler leadership or they hid from him and his Nazi army.
The Holocaust Amanda Marie Flores HIS 104 World Civilizations II Instructor: Jennifer Bridges November 27th 2011 Holocaust is a Greek word coming from the word “holos” meaning (whole), and “kaustos” meaning (burned). The holocaust was a state-sponsored discrimination along with murder of about six million Jews by the collaboration of the Nazi regime. The Nazis who were in power in Germany in January of 1933, believed that the Jews reckoned inferior, and the Germens were racially superior to the fact. Adolf Hitler was one of the men who helped form the Holocaust, among being the main ruler during this time. Hitler like many others of this time blamed the Jews for the country’s defeat back in 1918.
Humiliation, anger, revenge; these were the simple elements that caused the Holocaust. "The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of...Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. "Holocaust Encyclopedia "The Holocaust" A tragic event that targeted and killed approximately six million Jews (men, women, and children) from 1933-1945. Though these events couldn't have just happened on their own. The Holocaust was caused by three main factors; Germany's loss of World War I, the Great Depression, and Antisemitism.
He also blamed Germany’s difficulties on the Jews but did not tell the people his true intention was to exterminate them. Thus he created an atmosphere of hatred in Germany that later would be proven by his draconian measures towards the Jews. The first real brutal attack against the Jews came in June 1934, when Hitler had about 1,000 people murdered in the Night of the Long Knives. He then introduced the Nuremburg Laws which were as follows: all Jews had to wear the Star of David, they lost their professional careers and property, Jews could not mingle with the German population, and ultimately the Jews lost their citizenship. These laws passed without any resistance and should have been a sign to the world of things to
