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.
They decided they are going to start killing them. So the Nazis started putting on camp where they are going to kill Jews and make them suffer until they are dead. But some Jews thought whatever they heard about the camps were not true so they trusted the Germans and moved in to those camps. Jews thought the camps were for them to survive from the war that was going on. The worst camp was the Auschwitz, it was the largest concentration camp.
Schindlerjuden An act of mass destruction, a loss of life; the Holocaust was the mass murder of the Jewish community under the regime of Nazi Germany. The Holocaust first began in 1933 under the power of Adolf Hitler, and eventually ended in 1945 when Nazi Germany was defeated by the allied powers. The term “Holocaust” originates from the Greek term “holokauston”, meaning, “sacrificed by fire”. The Nazis didn’t just focus on the full destruction of Jews, they also narrowed in on the other minorities such as the homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Gypsies, and the disabled. An estimated 11 million died under the rule of Hitler, 6 million of those were Jews, and 1.1 million were children.
The Holocaust began after a Jewish youth from Germany shot a German diplomat living in Paris. Hitler then violently persecuted Jews, using the event as an excuse. The Holocaust began with Kristallnacht, when Nazi troopers destroyed Jewish-owned property in Germany. As a result of Kristallnacht, many Jews fled Europe and went overseas to places like the U.S.A. After Kristallnacht, Hitler ordered all Jews to be segregated into ghettos, which were living areas specifically for Jews. Hitler hoped the Jews would die of starvation or from disease as the ghettos had horrible conditions.
Hitler had a plan to eliminate the Jewish population; it was a plan that he called “ Final Solution” which killed off about six million Jews, one million five hundred thousand of those Jews were children. Nazi were members of a political party in Germany called National Socialist German Workers’ Party also led by Adolf Hitler.
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.
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.
Various legislation to remove the Jews from civil society, predominantly the Nuremberg Laws, was enacted in Nazi Germany years before the outbreak of World War II. Concentration camps were established in which inmates were used as slave labor until they died of exhaustion or disease. Where the Third Reich conquered new territory in eastern Europe, specialized units called Einsatzgruppen murdered Jews and political opponents in mass shootings. The Third Reich required Jews and Romani to be confined in overcrowded ghettos before being transported by freight train to extermination camps where, if they survived the journey, the majority of them were systematically killed in gas chambers. Every arm of Nazi Germany's bureaucracy was involved in the logistics that led to the genocides, turning the Third Reich into what one Holocaust scholar has called "a genocidal state".
The majority of the victims killed were Jews because they were undesirable and not the same race as the German Nazi’s. Nearly every 7 out of 10 Jews living in Europe were murdered. Part of the murdered victims consisted of people belonging to certain racial or religious groups, which the Nazis wanted to wipe out such as those who were not in the
The Jewish culture was taken out of the society by taking them to concentration camp where they would be murdered. People knew about these camps all around the world, yet nobody stepped up tp do anything about it. Until the allied forces were successful in defeating Germany the concentration camps kept killing. I believe other cultures were practicing typical ethnocentrism as well. Most of the world were Christian and looked down on the Jews.
