It started out with a couple hundred members then grew to a couple hundred thousand. Hitler now had his own personal army to do his dirty work. The Nazis tortured terrorized dehumanized and killed the Jewish people during the holocaust. The Jews were terrorized and dehumanized by being sent to concentration camps by the Nazis.
How they were psychologically transformed from ordinary men into the people, who participated actively in the worst crime against humanity known to date. Even if theses pressures are powerful, it doesn't account for the actions of all the Germans, in every aspect of the war. The Jews were slaughtered because they had different beliefs. Although there we have differences in opinion on certain topics, Browning does an incredible job at depicting the atmosphere at that time. Elie Wiesel on the other hand incorporated various literary techniques to convey the message of Nazi’s brutality towards their Jewish prisoners.
When you start a rumor, it can hurt someone and sometimes it gets out of hand. This is what happened during the Holocaust. The Nazi’s started a rumor that the Jews were the reason they lost the war, because they (Jews), were an inferior race, according to Adolf Hitler. This is how Hitler started his rumor and plan to get rid of all people that were “inferior” and begin a “Perfect” race. Some-times people make wrong choices by judging others without really knowing them.
Adam Suraz 08/20/13 Us History Ap Holocaust When a person thinks about the Holocaust, they think about the atrocity’s that happen inside there.

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.
Cruel Times. The Holocaust was a terrible and horrific time for all people under the rule of Adolf Hitler. Hitler played a lead role in the Holocaust and the laws, which he passed, were extremely cruel and harsh towards the Jews and minorities. If that was not enough later laws were enacted dictating instructions for the complete extermination of the Jewish race. The Nazis were so unforgiving and cruel in their ways that Jews and Minorities had to find new ways of living without becoming known to the Nazis and the German public.
Hitler had already convinced Germany that Jews were a disgrace. He started the extermination by taking over Poland, a country with over three million Jews. Then, he continued taking over Belgium, Luxemburg, France, and Holland, placing every single Jew under Nazis control. Hitler and his people did not know what to do with the millions of Jews, so he proposed, and executed, the Final Solution. This means, kill them all!
Lara Olson English 10 Seminar Mrs. Zavacki 20 March 2012 Almost everyone in the world knows about the Holocaust and how it ruined the lives of many. But no one knows the real horror brought upon the survivors until you read their true stories. The rude awakening of the memoir Night and the poem “Aftermath” show that even the kindest people can lose their sense of virtuous direction. Wiesel’s story about his experiences at the concentration camps grew more heartbreaking to read with every word. Wiesel wrote about how horrible it seemed to lose one’s innocence.
Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, some conspiracy theorists believe that the deliberate extermination of 6 million Jews in the Nazi concentration camps is simply a conspiracy intended to discredit Hitler. They do not deny that Jews were interned in prison camps during World War II but argue that the number of deaths was greatly exaggerated. They say that the pictures of emaciated people and bodies stacked like cord wood were actually of Poles and Germans who died of typhus rather than being the victims of mistreatment. They maintain that gas chambers were just a rumor. To buy into this revisionist view one would need to discount the mountain of pictorial and first-hand witness evidence available, but that’s never stood in the way
