The Nazi’s where holding vicious pogroms—state sanctioned, anti-Jewish riots—against the Jewish community of Germany.

The glass left over from all the destruction is why it was called the Night of The Broken Glass.

Racism and prejudice have been going on for years, but what will never be forgotten is the time when the entire Jewish population went under an almost complete genocide. After the war the Germans sought for a way out of bankruptcy and starvation until one day they found it. Adolf Hitler turned the Germans against the Jewish and used them as a scapegoat out of their problem. The Germans believed that they were the superior race so they used many methods to kill the Jews such as shooting, starving, overworking and even gassing. Even though people remember the Holocaust, racism and prejudice are in a fight to be stopped.
Judaism: The Holocaust Anti-Semitism has been a harsh reality for the Jewish community since the beginning of Judaism. The most extreme event throughout the history anti-Semitism is the Holocaust. The Holocaust refers to a period from 1933 to 1949, in which the regime of Hitler took over and began persecuting the Jewish population. It was in 1933 that Hitler, as leader of the Nazi party, was elected chancellor of Germany. Following World War I Germany fell in to a period of economic failure, famine, and social and political unrest.
Ismael Martinez History 4327 Dr. Roethler 8 May 2009 What motivated the perpetrators of the Holocaust? It was specifically, Hitler’s philosophy of racial and ethnic purity and prejudiced nationalism, which motivated the perpetrators of the Holocaust.

The Nazis were people filled with anti-Semitism.
Hitler used the Jewish people as a scapegoat for the problems Germany had as a nation. They were his main targets throughout his reign of terror and the majority of those killed, approximately six million, in the Holocaust. However, Nazi ideology was not discriminatory to only Jews. Gypsies, homosexuals, handicapped, homeless people, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and communists were all targeted and killed or imprisoned, along with the Jews (Bergen
Driven nearly two thousand years ago by the Romans from the land now called Israel, they spread throughout the globe and tried to retain their unique beliefs and culture while living as a minority. (Museum, 2011) Considering the Jews did not carry the same religious beliefs as the Christians, the Jews were discriminated against by the Christian’s. The Christians taught their people that the Jews were to blame for the death of Jesus. However at the time the Christian’s were not aware that the death of Jesus actually fell on the hands of the Roman government. Anti-Semitism was definitely present before the Holocaust and it was a thousand times worse during Hitler’s reign over the Nazi party.
The Refugee crisis Palestine underwent is a crucial factor in determining whether the Jews’ committed “ethnic cleansing” . There has been much debate as to whether the Zionist regime intended to ethnically cleanse the Palestinians. The Zionist argument is that all their actions were unintended and based on military strategy, and yet Zionist officials forbid Palestinian refugees to return to the country after the war was over. However, other aspects must also be examined. Arab propaganda was also a major reason for the Palestinians exodus as mass panic was created.
