They had the ability to tap phone lines, intercept mail and to spy on people. Anyone who was suspected as being against the Nazi Party and Hitler would be immediately arrested and detained for as long as they wished. The Gestapo was what ordinary Germans feared every day, as no one was safe from late night police raids or deportation to the concentration camps. By 1939, 150,000 political prisoners were put under ‘protective arrest’. The Nazis also controlled and altered the German judiciary system to benefit themselves.
Did Sacco and Vanzetti had a fair trial? Why not? Were they guilty of the crime? No , Sacco and Vanzetti didn’t have a fair trail as they didn’t commit any crime but they got arrested and sentenced to death just because they are anarchists and confessed that they hated the capitalism and the American system of the government. Also, the Americans who tried them are all biases and when the court case was trailed, it was the height of the red scare so all Americans were being so paranoid when they knew that a murder case had something to do with foreigners and they didn’t even find out what the truth was and just assumed that Sacco and Vanzetti were the attackers.
Adolf Hitler still had lots of plans on his hands. Finally, in 1941, Hitler ordered the beginning of mass deportations from Germany to ghetto in Eastern Europe. The war happened because Adolf Hitler wanted sole control of Germany and also most of Europe. The reason the Nazi Genocide occurred is because Hitler did not like the Jews, Communists, Gypsies, homosexuals, and others. Hitler ordered the higher Nazi soldiers to build concentration camps all over Germany and Poland to detain, deport, and also house the prisoners.
He also blamed Germany’s difficulties on the Jews but did not tell the people his true intention was to exterminate them. Thus he created an atmosphere of hatred in Germany that later would be proven by his draconian measures towards the Jews. The first real brutal attack against the Jews came in June 1934, when Hitler had about 1,000 people murdered in the Night of the Long Knives. He then introduced the Nuremburg Laws which were as follows: all Jews had to wear the Star of David, they lost their professional careers and property, Jews could not mingle with the German population, and ultimately the Jews lost their citizenship. These laws passed without any resistance and should have been a sign to the world of things to
Arendt actually points out that in the Nuremburg documents, no account of murder for not fulfilling orders was ever documented (p92). Eichmann thought that not carrying out the orders of his Fuhrer was “unthinkable” and not “admirable”. The fact is, he was driven by idea of being part of something great, as a high ranking officer of the Nazi party, even at the cost of what he was doing. If he did not want to facilitate in the extermination, he could have simply applied for a transfer, as was suggested by Eric von dem Bach-Zelewski, but he did not
However I do not agree that Hitler alone was responsible for the Holocaust as there was other people to it and some people could of refused and fought back such as Britain and France as they knew something was happening and also the SS because Hitler would have been nothing without them, they was the ones who scared people into thinking Hitler was right they was the people that made Hitler look so desirable, everyone did there bit in the Holocaust and if they didn’t then there could have been a chance of it not
His “list” of people changed inconstantly and his refusal to provide anyone names of the so called communists set up a horrifyingly awesome spike in hysteria and fear of communists infiltrating the government. Another person of interest in the domestic aspects of the cold war David Greenglass, he was a spy for the soviet union that was working on the Manhattan Project. The trial for him was hard to set up, not only would his story change all the time, but what he was talking about and discussing was supposed to remain “secret.” he served 10 years out of the sentenced 15. He was related to the Rosenberg's, known communists spies and sympathizers. In 1951 the McCarren Internal security act was passed.
Through my personal research I thought that during the holocaust the Christians did very little to help out with the persecution of the Jews. “There were many Christians and Church leaders who endangered themselves in order to protect Jews. But many more supported and executed the Nazis' plans, and many did so in the name of Jesus and Christianity” (Judaism and Christianity: After the Holocaust). It seems that many people, especially Christians did a lot to help out with the Jews, but on the other side of the coin, some Christians helped out with the Nazis’ plans in the name of Christ. Even though the Nazis’ killed a lot of Christians during the holocaust as well, many of the Jews murderers we baptized followers of Christ (Judaism and Christianity: After the
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.
