So the only way to fix this problem was to start a system of eradication of Jews. This was the cause of the Holocaust. By 1945, the Germans and their collaborators killed nearly two out of every three European Jews as part of the Nazi policy to murder the Jews of Europe. He hated Jewish people, gypsies, homosexuals, disabled people and twins. He wanted to direct German aggression off the government and used those groups of people as scapegoats, causing one of the greatest tragedies in history.
Why Did Hitler Hate the Jews? Most history students know that over six million Jews were slaughtered during World War II. However, there are actually several theories as to why Hitler hated the Jews. What was the cause that instigated one man to try and wipe out an entire race of people? Let us try and look at some of the possible causes or factors that lead to this cold-blooded massacre.
His act of evil resulting in the deaths of over twelve million Jewish people, which was more than half the Jewish population at the time is unforgettable and horrifying till today. I intend to prove that God did not prevent this evil from happening because of the following theodical arguments of Evil as a Privation of Good, The Free-Will Defense, and Evil as Therapy. Hitler's Holocaust began when he gained power of Germany in 1933. Ever since, he carried out his mission to murder the entire Jewish race. What started with segregating Jewish people into ghetto neighborhoods to isolate them for the rest was actually his master plan for the planned murder of any and all Jews in Nazi Europe.
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.
On April 1, 1933, it all began. The Nazis initially provoked their first actions on Germany and German Jews by beginning a boycott against all Jewish businesses. This took an enormous toll on all Jewish families, quickly putting an end to their businesses, and bringing poverty to an all-time-high. Only five months later, on September 15, 1935, Hitler made his second move in persecution, by issuing the Nuremburg Laws. The Nuremburg Laws were made to exclude the Jews from all public life, forbidding them from all parks, firing them from all civil service jobs, making them register all property, and taking way all citizenship rights.
The Jewish culture was taken out of the society by taking them to concentration camp where they would be murdered. People knew about these camps all around the world, yet nobody stepped up tp do anything about it. Until the allied forces were successful in defeating Germany the concentration camps kept killing. I believe other cultures were practicing typical ethnocentrism as well. Most of the world were Christian and looked down on the Jews.
Following the death of Von Rath Citizens of Germany were angered and Hitler had used this to his full advantage and stated that if any violence were to be taken out against the Jews as a result of the shooting he would not intervene. Some Nazi leaders stood back and watched incidents happen and some even took it as an order to attack the Jews; SA and SS forces were sent out to go cause trouble with the Jews and were ordered to organise demonstrations and arrest as many Jews as they can. On the 9th and 10th of November, gangs smashed up Jewish property and attacked Jews. A listed 814 shops, 171 homes and 191 synagogues were destroyed, about 100 Jews were killed. The damage of this left the night being called “The Night of Broken Glass” or Kristallnacht (Crystal Night).
The Cause of the Holocaust Many people ask themselves “what caused the holocaust?” There are many answers to this question. The holocaust mainly started because of Adolf Hitler. Hitler thought that people should look a specific way. He blamed Jews for every bad thing that happened to Germans. As a result, Jews were murdered, abused, and emotionally scarred because of who they were, and the way the looked.
Holocaust When Hitler became ruler of Germany, he decided to make his country a dictatorship. This caused his people to listen to the propaganda he made up. Every Jew was executed and only could bring a bag of belongings, which they soon lost. They were all sent to concentration camps, where they were separated from their parents and siblings. Jews from all over the world were worked to death and/or starved to death; as a result, nearly six million Jewish people passed away, being thrown in ovens to burn the bodies or buried.
The Holocaust is an evil many cannot forget, I recently seen a documentary of the holocaust. The events that took place during the holocaust were villainous in my opinion. The Nazis murdered millions of Jews, children, gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah’s witnesses, disabled persons and anyone who appeared inferior, deemed useless or a detriment in the Nazis eyes. Nazis killed millions of people to turn Germany into a world power and create a ‘Master Race’. At the beginning of the holocaust outcasts were removed from their homes and banned from normal day to day society.
