Felicia ortiz Period 3 May 5, 2012 Felishaortiz61@yahoo.com The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state sponsored persecution and murder of approximetely six million jews by the nazi regime and its collaborators. Holocaust is a word of Greek origin meaning sacrifice by fire. The nazis, who came to power in germany in January 1933 belived that germans were racially superior and that the jews , deemed inferior were an alien threat to the so called german racial community. During the era of the holocaust , german authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived racial inferiority. 1933 the jewish population of Europe stood at over nine million.
But Germans blamed it for signing the Versailles treaty and for hunger and unemployment. Hitler set up a fascist style party called the Nazi party. Hitler wanted to tear up the Versailles treaty and unite all Germans so they could form a great German empire. He blamed the Jews and the communists for Germany’s troubles and wanted to destroy them. When the Great Depression 1929 forced many factories to close, desperate Germans voted for the Nazi party.
I believe that life changed drastically for the average German in between 1933 and 1939 under Nazi and Hitler’s rule. I intend to show how life changed for these people and the many different communities in Germany in between these times. In 1933 the were lots of different communities in Germany but it was very varied on who would come out the better and who would come out the worse from Nazi rule in the long run. The community that were treated by far the worse were without question the Jewish people of Germany. 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.
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
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.
Although Germany was an educated and economically developed country, their leader---Hitler hated Jews a lot. Hitler tried many ways to make Jews look bad and then he could have abundant excuses to kill them. He was a good leader, he leaded the Germany become strong again, but he was also breaking out a gloomy Holocaust in Germany. The Holocaust was the shame of the Germany; the Nazis killed millions of harmless Jews. Just because Jews are richer and smarter than Germans, Hitler was jealous; just because Hitler wanted a higher race in Germany; just because they lost the World War I, they didn’t want to admit their losing.
Marie Noel English 120 Prof Lavi 12/3/12 Title: The story about prejudging In this society, prejudice which is an unjustified attitude towards an individual based on a social group has been a major problem in the United States. Throughout history, the act of prejudice has caused a lot of death and mistreatment on many social groups. A great example of prejudice is World War II concerning the Jews. During the reign of Adolf Hitler, the Jews were being mistreated and murdered out of pure hatred. According to the Holocaust Encyclopedia approximately six million Jews were killed.
The Nazis were a political party in Germany at the time of the Second World War, and they were ruled by a man named Adolf Hitler. Hitler believed that the Great World War was the result of Jews and that they lost the war because of the Jews. Hitler wanted to get rid of anyone who was Jew; this resulted in an event called the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a very unique event. It evolved around 1933 and 1945.
The Holocaust was a tragic event in history. Approximately 11 million lives were lost because of cruel racial prejudice. During the first half of the 20th century, the Nazi party, led by Adolf Hitler, encouraged prejudice against Jews and other "undesirables" such as gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, or physically disabled;. The Nazis developed a plan to get rid of all the Jews. They decided the most efficient way of doing this was to set up camps to exterminate their existence so they would not pass on their genes and disrupt the Nazis' quest for the perfect race.
