The Nazis rose to governmental power through a long, thought-out series of actions that turned Hitler’s leadership into a dictatorship and started the Holocaust and World War II. The origin of the Nazi group was Hitler’s opinion that the German people and the entire world needed a solution to the so-called “Jewish question”; which he preached to young German men everywhere. His belief was that there was need for a pure and elite race, specifically the Aryan race, and he would go to extraordinary lengths in
CASE STUDY: THE HOLOCAUST Prejudice is any preconceived attitude, opinion or feeling towards an individual or group of people, which could be either favourable or unfavourable. Most psychologists consider the holocaust in relation to prejudice. The holocaust was a specific period in the 20th century where the Jews were systematically persecuted and annihilated by the Nazi’s. During this era, the handicapped were also targeted. 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.
The Role of Race in the Holocaust B: Analytical body Through my research I tried to look for the role of race in the Nazi System, which probably caused the holocaust which is locked chambers that are spread with poisonous killing gas aimed for killing the Jews. Race is seen as the most illogical component of the Nazis system, which made it a dictatorial regime capable of committing acts of evil.

The only legitimate reasoning behind Hitler’s actions was to create efficient room for the perfect race. The perfect race known as the Aryan race as mentioned before, was what was considered pure German blood and the Nazis stopped at nothing while trying to achieve the adequate living space. The determination of Hitler and his followers was what resulted in millions of innocent people’s death. To this day Hitler is considered and remembered as a ruthless, heartless, inhumane individual, who caused one of the world’s most gruesome events in history. “Anti-Semitism was the means by which he smashed the legal system, established his dictatorship, and implicated the German people in his crimes” (Schoenberner 1).

(Museum, 2011) Adolf Hitler was sworn in as the offical Cancellor of Germany in early 1933, He was the leader behind the distruction and punishment brought out by the Holocaust.
