The ‘final solution’ of genocide was introduced at the Wannsee Conference of 1942. (Nichols, 2008). Most Historians divide into two schools when interpreting the Holocaust; the intentionalists and structualists. The intentionalists believe that Hitler’s intentions were clearly set out in Mein Kampf, early in his career, and when he came to power he and the Nazi party followed a step-by–step path to fulfilling these plans. 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.
The difference between the world Hitler ruled in and today’s world is we care about the world’s equality. If Something such as a mass killing of one culture was to happen, somebody would step in no matter what there culture is. Ethnocentrism may still exist but not as strong, not in ways where one culture wants to kill another. Countries around the world would not allow for people to put a whole culture into a total institution again. Organizations such as the United Nations would not allow for
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.
The other interpretation was structuralism. Structuralists believe that Hitler was just as much to blame for the Holocaust as a whole string of other factors which will come out in this essay. Then again, historiography isn’t the only factor that must be taken into account when pinning blame for the Holocaust. It must be remembered that there are different types of responsibility too, and how these are analysed may
If a person gives you a title, you are going to believe it. That’s what Joseph Goebbels did, he made false accusations of the Jews being thieves and owning secret jewelry, they believed Jews weren’t human. When Hitler seized power in 1933, Goebbels was appointed Reichsminister for propaganda and national enlightment. He was in control of total mobilization. After the war, Goebbels was the reason for the work of propaganda by the German government.
The Nuremberg Laws Imagine finding a document signed by Adolf Hitler, the leader of such a large country. We all know to believe that Hitler was behind the Holocaust but do we really know that he was directly involved? Well we do now, and we can say he is affiliated with the persecution of the Jews. The Nazis expressed Anti-Semitic views by passing the Nuremberg Laws and other anti-legislation. The Nazis believed in what is known as Anti-Semitism.
The Holocaust There were many ways the Holocaust could have been prevented. Since Hitler was the man who led this genocide, the main thing that would have had to be done to stop the Holocaust from happening would be stopping him. Hitler made many laws against the Jews. These laws eventually lead up to the persecution of the Jews. There were many missed opportunities in which the Germans, along with other countries, could have prevented Hitler from acting on the laws for persecution of the Jews which led to the Holocaust.
The main goal of these people is to promote Nazism or fascism, or prevent Jews from having their own country. There are two types of groups of people that are considered to be deniers of the Holocaust, as the “Holocaust Denial on Trial” organization said: The goal of Holocaust deniers in the West is political -- they want to rehabilitate Nazism and fascism in general and Adolf Hitler in particular -- and to promote anti-Semitism and, at times, anti-Israel sentiment. Holocaust denial in the Arab and Muslim world seems to be driven primarily by the goal of undermining what is perceived to be a powerful justification for Israel's
This Law was to be known as “The protection of German Blood and Honor”(Lecture). The other big law in which the Nuremburg Laws enforced was the “The Reich Citizen Law.” The purpose of this law was to completely separate the non-Jews and pure German blood citizens. At this point in time, I would really like to know how the Jewish population handled these laws. I have thought about it lot if I was a live during that time, if I would try to organize some type of protest or rebellion against the Nazi Party. I understand how the Nazi Party was very intimidating at the time, but its hard for me to wrap my head around that more of the Jewish population did not stand up for their
