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
Some major industrialists and aristocrats supported Hitler’s strong ants of the anti-Jewish and anti communism stance. These ideas were later carried out through the great Holocaust. The Holocausts had killed more than 6 million Jewish men and women through the death camps during the Nazi’s rein. This hatred for the Jewish gradually spread throughout the country and racial biology was taught at school, that the Jewish were inferior, impure and not German. The Jews had to be gotten rid of.
Both of them have no good reason for sentencing people to death but more just want it to happen because they have the power to do it as Giles Corey points out in “The Crucible”. “Say nothin' more, John. He's only playin' you! He means to hang us all! (Miller 91) It is clear that Danforth has an absolutely senseless reason for killing people because he chooses to believe that witchcraft is real like Hitler chooses to believe that Germans are a superior race and Jews cause all of the worlds problems.
It is believed that Adolf Hitler had put a tremendous amount of blame on the Jewish population for the losses of World War I and embarrassment that wouled ensue Germany afterwards. Becoming the juggernaut nation in it’s way up, the United States had the ability to protect the Jewish population of America in 1938, but Franklin D. Roosevelt felt that World War I was still too close in history that he felt it was best to not be involved quite yet. Policy in The United States prohibited many Jewish citizens from becoming a U.S citizen. Franklin D. Rooseevelt’s regulations also affected the U.S citizens and the immigration dilemma that was about toi happen before Hitler’s actions came into play. The United States was not at a stable point in time having just started to come out of the Great Depression of
Normally Jews were killed in the chambers by carbon monoxide, but that was not enough for Hoess, he needed to go above and beyond with the way he exterminated an entire race. In 1941 he was given orders from Adolf Eichman of the “Final Solution” to the Jewish question. Rudolf Hoess was a Perpetrator for he conducted many acts that were morally wrong or criminal. Hoess’s original decision to join Hitler’s
Why was Nazi Germany anti-Semitic and what was the government’s “final solution”? Anti-Semitism is prejudice against, or hostility towards Jews. Holocaust refers to the complete burning of a substance by flame and describes the final solution reaching in Germany in 1942 to exterminate the Jewish race. So far as many Germans were concerned, Hitler had revived the economy, restored national pride and improved their lives. They believed they belonged to a Volksgenmeinschaft that proved for their needs and to which they owed their obedience.
The consequences of Kristallnatch, the event in Germany was rejected by various and praised by others, many governments cut off relations with Germany in protest. The Jews who remained in Germany were forced to pay a fine of one billion marks for the damage in kristallnatch, Jewish children were not accepted in schools and there was a mass escape of Jews living in territories ruled by the 3rd Reich. As we saw the Kristallnatch was not a spontaneous act but an act orchestrated by the nazis who had been waiting for the right occasion to performed it, with that act the Nazis declared an
In the Nazi camps such as Auswich there was an environment of public opinion that encouraged racism and hate crimes. These conditions allowed further steps of dehumanization to be put on the Jews which permitted the guards to commit violent and racist acts. This was shown in Maus regard the way Mandelbaum was killed “On the walk to work, a guard grabbed his cap away. So what could he do? He ran to pick it up.
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).
Then when WW II came around the Jewish people were targeted by the Nazis. They were stripped of all their rights and basically became slaves to the Nazis party. The Nazis tried to rid Europe of the Jewish people and if they had their way eventually the whole world would be free of this religious group. The character that people show through times of adversity can define them individually and as an entire group. In “Night” Eli Wiesel faces life and death everyday in the Nazis concentration camp.
