At the international military tribunal in October 1946 was a combined effort by Great Britain, the United States, the USSR, and France on behalf of the United Nations brought 22 war criminals to trial. Later in the article the punishment/judgment of these war criminals will be discussed, along with Taylor’s punishment/judgment. Extradition of War Criminals Adolf Eichmann After World War II, the International Military tribunal started with the Nuremburg trial to evidence on war criminals. Some of the war criminals escaped to avoided prosecution, one was Adolf Eichmann. Eichmann was known as a head executioner that killed Jews at death camps.
The Germans, as the strongest and fittest, were destined to rule, while the weak and racially adulterated Jews were doomed to extinction. Hitler began to restrict the Jews with legislation and terror, which entailed burning books written by Jews, removing Jews from their professions and public schools, confiscating their businesses and property and excluding them from public events. The most infamous of the anti-Jewish legislation were the Nuremberg Laws, enacted on September 15, 1935.

Many people deny the existence of the Holocaust and the genocide of the Jewish population during World War II, which keeps the anti-Semitism and stereotype chain intact. “The Holocaust is one of the most well documented events that ever happened in history,” (Confronting Antisemitism).

Some other reasons why the deniers deny the Holocaust is, to reduce sympathy for Jews, to doubt the Jews and the Holocaust, draw attention to this issue, and most importantly, undermine our understanding of history (Confronting Antisemitism).

The Holocaust: Dehumanization of Innocence LaLa229 July 4, 2011 The Holocaust represents one moment in the history of the world where dehumanization is displayed. The Holocaust should have never occurred due to bigotry and hatred of Jews and other “inferior” groups and races of people, who were looked down upon by the Nazis. The Nazis deemed themselves “superior” and were cruel and heartless. The Jews, Poles, Soviet P.O.W.S., homosexual, Gypsies, disabled, mentally ill people (some German), and others were an alien threat to the so-called German community. All races and groups hated by the Nazis endured pure torture, while the Nazis were in the effect of exterminating the people.
Millions more including: homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Soviet (Russian) prisoners of war, and citizens who didn’t agree, died under the Nazi tyranny as well. In order to complete this assignment, I will vividly examine the theories and factors of prejudice in the holocaust and how it may have been avoided.
The Nazis were people filled with anti-Semitism. What was the motivation? For one Hitler’s belief that Jews, Gypsies and homosexuals were not fit to walk the earth was all the motivation anyone needed to go forth with such a revolting idea such as the Holocaust. Hitler had the
He took “geno-“ from the Greek word for race, and added “-cide” from the Latin word for killing. In 1945, the International Military Tribunal held in Nuremberg, Germany used “genocide” as a descriptive term in charging Nazis with “crimes against humanity.” On December 9th,

According to him, as recorded in the New York Times, American anti-Semitism although it had not reached the level of the Nazi Germany, pollsters estimated that they were being unfavorable to them (Abzug 25). Although there were numerous reports during pre-war, such as the enactment of Nuremberg Laws in 1935 by the German government, which were widely reported in the American press, they were denounced at large (Abzug 23). In the Kristallnacht enactment in, 1938, the Jews had their citizenship stripped making them
