In this essay, I will be including and explaining the real facts and figures of what happened in the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a time of devastation and corruption. It was a time of cruelty and it was terribly inhumane. The Holocaust and its supporters tried vainly to make the world perfect, but only succeeded in killing millions. The Nazi’s and Adolph Hitler spoke against Jews even before the start of World War II, they blamed them for
During the 1940’s horrible crimes and tortures were committed by the Nazis. The Nazi’s led by Hitler were trying to complete their goal known as the final solution. This goal was to entirely eliminate the Jewish race. The Nazi’s saw them as inferior people who didn’t deserve to live. They looked at Jews as animals not people.
The Holocaust was the systematic genocide of Jews and other undesirables by the Nazis in German-occupied areas of Europe. Some Nazi practices were forcing Jews to live in concentration camps or ghettos, as well as murdering them in numerous ways. Policies included the Nuremburg Laws, which stripped the rights of Jews. Resistance against these activities did not necessarily involve violence; there were both violent and passive ways in which the Jews chose to resist Nazi policies and practices. Many Jewish people chose to use violent opposition as resistance to the actions of the Germans.
Bauer provides passages from Jewish individuals stating that rebellion is the only way out. In one specific quote, Abba Kovner states, “Is there a way out? Yes, there is a way out: rebellion and armed resistance.” This goes to show that some Jews felt that the only way they had a chance of surviving was to rise up against the Nazi party. The main reason why Armed Resistance was an issue was due to the limited weapon supply. More specifically, Jews were not able to purchase guns, or individuals would not sell them to Jews.
Hitler captured people in his speeches with his promises of a better Germany, but he also taught his hatred of Jews in the process. “It was Hitler’s belief that the Jews had too much money, land and the power of the press.” (library.thinkquest.org) Hitler caused mass hysteria against Jews by creating this frame of mind that they were the cause of all things bad just like Abigail and her posse did to Salem. Unfortunately, the people who are completely innocent in these cases get punished the most. In both the Salem witch trials and the Holocaust many people were killed who were not
Hitler and most Nazis believed that Jewish people were devils and only wanted to conquer the world and bring destruction to everything that people had worked hard to achieve. They also believed that all Jewish people were communists a group that most people did not like at all and so it turned more people against Jewish people. The Nazis also then made a new class for everyone apart from Jewish people and therefore telling the Jewish people that they were inferior to everyone but themselves. All in all Jewish people were treated like rats. Nazis were constantly putting up posters showing Jewish people as dirty ugly deformed scum of the world.
Once it became clear that they were not going to win the war they made it their very mission to destroy every piece of evidence and documentation that called for the extermination of the Jewish people. The Holocaust denial movement began in the Western world following the Nuremberg Trials. Holocaust denial is an attempt to negate the established facts of the Nazi genocide of European Jewry. “It depicts a picture by which Jews conspired to create a hoax, the greatest fabrication of all time. Adolf Hitler did not plan genocide for the Jews but wished instead to move them out of Europe” (Cohen- Almagor, 2008, 216).
In this quote, it’s referring to all Nazis. This is a let down for Anton because he knows how much the towns people despise him German soldiers. Another example , “God is on America’s side and anybody who’s against us is on the devil’s side” (55). Anton is referred to the “devil’s side” because he’s a Nazis. He has an external conflict with the people in Jenkinsville because everyone there hates the Nazis.
The holocaust was one of the most damaging events that affected the entire world and is still affecting it today. It started because of a man named Adolf Hitler. He was the supreme power of Germany. Hitler believed that the blonde haired blue eyed Germans were the superior race and everyone else was inferior. He tortured and killed millions of people, but he targeted the Jewish people because he thought of them worthless.
The Holocaust was one of the worst events to ever happen to mankind. It was started by the Fuhrer of Germany, Adolf Hitler, who thought that the Aryan race was superior to every other race. He had a massive hatred for the Jewish race and decided to try and exterminate every living Jewish person. He killed around two-thirds of all the European Jews (Byers 10). World War II was going on at the same time as the Holocaust.
