Historians, Bracher and Jackel believed the holocaust was a completely intentional act, as Wyman states: “Intentionalism anchored Nazi behaviour in Hitler’s and his cohorts' deeply felt anti-Semitism, which they had formulated well before their ascent to power; once in power, they had put into practice what their intention had been all along.” (Wyman, p.419, 1996) Intentionalists argue everything in the Nazi period, was a deliberate move towards Hitler’s ultimate goals. Hitler was a fanatical anti-Semite, who committed himself to the extermination of the Jews from early in his career. Intentionalist historian, Goldhagen argues Hitler had a ‘blueprint’, for the Holocaust, as Morris
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. As Hitler gained control territories in other European countries, the intensity as well as territorial spread of persecution increased. By the end of World War II Nazis had killed an estimated six million
Journal 1 entry: early 1942 How can they be so blind? Hitler was right about how we Germans should eliminate those filthy Jews. My fellow Nazi leaders and I do not understand why the worlds, besides our allies, are against us. We are not harming any humans, but instead exterminating those who wish to be human. Jews are the reason that jobs are not available for every German.
After the war, Goebbels was the reason for the work of propaganda by the German government. He was known to use almost anything for propaganda purposes, such as posters from French and German movies with Jewish stars as examples of the "typical Jew." Even when Germany was falling in 1945 and the Allies told them to surrender, Goebbels used that as a motivational tool to demonstrate that every German needed to fight or face the end. In Conclusion, Joseph Goebbels was apart of a mass hysteria to killing Jews, and he was influence by
Some of the lessons were the tragedy that comes from fascism. Fascism is similar to a dictatorship. It is when the executive branch power grows very powerful, and is able to control the country. However, the difference between dictatorships and the fascism is the need for an enemy to take over. Fascism looks for a problem with a different race or religion to destroy which is exactly what Hitler did.
The Nazis also controlled and altered the German judiciary system to benefit themselves. Hitler was put in charge of law and order, and all judges were forced to take an oath of loyalty to him. The Nazi’s now used these courts to frame their enemies. It was almost a guarantee that if sent to one of these courts, you would be found guilty. If arrested by the Gestapo and were convicted of being an ‘Enemy of the State’, the suspected person would be forced to sign Form D-11, which if signed meant that you are giving your consent for being thrown into a concentration camp.
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.
His act of evil resulting in the deaths of over twelve million Jewish people, which was more than half the Jewish population at the time is unforgettable and horrifying till today. I intend to prove that God did not prevent this evil from happening because of the following theodical arguments of Evil as a Privation of Good, The Free-Will Defense, and Evil as Therapy. Hitler's Holocaust began when he gained power of Germany in 1933. Ever since, he carried out his mission to murder the entire Jewish race. What started with segregating Jewish people into ghetto neighborhoods to isolate them for the rest was actually his master plan for the planned murder of any and all Jews in Nazi Europe.
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.
The Holocaust The Holocaust (1) all started with one crazy German Nazi named Adolf Hitler. Hitler started the holocaust to start a scapegoat due to the repercussions due to World War 1. After World War 1 Germany was forced to pay for all the damages in all the places that they had invaded which had put them in an economic crisis. Hitler decided to pin the Jews at the root of all of Germany’s problems. He aimed his violence towards Jews, but not just Jews it was also towards outsiders like communists, gypsies, Jehovah Witnesses, and homosexuals.
