Hitler deliberately expressed his hate toward Jews and gave ample warnings, as it was all written down in his autobiography “Mein Kampf”. In 1935, the introduction of the Nuremberg Laws stripped German Jews of their citizenship and civil rights. Jewish rights were steadily restricted, as in many cases Jewish political and intellectual leaders were the first to be sent to concentration camps. The Night of Broken Glass, on November 9, 1938 lead to the death of approximately 100 Jews, while other 30,000 were sent to concentration camps. Jewish businesses along with almost every synagogue in Germany were damaged or completely destroyed.
The Reichstag Fire took place on 27 February and the building burning was a dramatic development for the Nazis. Hitler used the event to place blame on the Communists and declared that the fire was the beginning of a Communist uprising. He demanded special emergency powers to deal with the situation and was given them by President Hindenburg. The Nazi used this power to arrest Communists, break up meetings and frighten voters. Due to many Germans thinking it was the communists, Hitler would’ve gained even more followers for the Nazi Party and an even bigger amount of power given by Hindenburg.
Taking back 19,000 cities and towns, including Jewish settlements 6. Russian Army headed straight for Berlin - US & Britain let them because they had lost 20,000,000 Soviet Citizens 7. Hitler did not like the Intelligence he was getting, fired Gehlen a few weeks before the war ended, shot Generals he thought were disloyal, ordered Germany's infrastructure destroyed (Albert Speers did not carry out that order), and committed suicide with Eva Braun IX. Aftermath of the Holocaust - The Betrayal of Americans and of Humanity A. Nazi SS and Gestapo Officers, some responsible for the Holocaust, surrender to the Americans saying that they are not Nazis, just extremely
The subjects of Dachau were careless that their city was going to turn into the source of death camps and of the Holocaust, the mass homicide conferred by the Nazi s in World War II. Dachau Concentration Camp, which would soon be set on the edge of their group, would serve as a model for all Nazi elimination camps. This impeccable model of a Nazi executing machine now speak to the begin of the unpleasantness filled Holocaust and the Nazi's determination to accomplish a flawless pop culture throughout World War II. On March 21, 1933, just two months after Adolf Hitler was delegated Chancellor of Germany, Heinrich Himmler, the Commander of the Schutzstaffel (SS) Elite Police Force and a standout amongst the most effective men in Nazi Germany, requested that a camp for political rivals be based on the grounds of a betrayed explosive manufacturing plant on the edge of the little group of Dachau, close Munich. The Nazi-controlled daily paper, the Vð"â¶lkischer Beobachter (deciphered Racial Observer) gladly broadcasted that the first death camp, with a limit of in excess of 5000 detainees, would be secured close Dachau.
In 1933, Hitler, leader of the Nazi party, was named Chancellor of Germany. After World War I the League of Nations had forced Germany to accept responsibility for the war. They lost land, were banned from building new submarines and aircraft, and had to pay for damages caused by the war. (Gordon, page 343) Hitler and the Nazi party wanted revenge on the winners of World War I and the Socialists, Communists, and Jews, who he blamed for Germany’s loss in World War I. (Ward and Burns, page 16) Hitler decided to take over other countries and to kill Jews.
Stalinist Russia during the late 1930’s experienced extreme changes and suffering in all sectors of society, including the military. The weakening of Russia’s military strength under Stalin’s rule is aptly described by Mary Leder in the novel “My Life in Stalinist Russia.” “No matter what the answer may be, it is an irrefutable fact that the Soviets did not use the two-year break to build up their defenses. On the contrary, Stalin continued to undermine the army by arresting its most talented leaders. He strengthened Germany by selling it the raw materials it needed to conduct the war. ” Through sources such as first hand accounts like the statement above, along with in-depth textbooks, I was able to understand the linear timeline of the Red Terror, and how the Red Terror was inextricably tied to the Russian casualties and suffering in World War II.
Hitler tried to seize power in Munich, Bavaria where over two thousand men gathered. Along the course of the two days, sixteen Nazis and four policemen were killed. Hitler also suffered a broken and dislocated arm in melee. All though it was resisted and put down by the police, Hitler proclaimed a resolution. Only a few days before the putsch began, Hitler promised Lossow that he would not attempt it.
The Decree Excluding Jews from German Economic Life prevented Jews from running businesses. Also, decrees excluding Jews from public places were made, with all Jewish pupils becoming ecpelled (15th Nov 1938). Also, a collective fine of 1 billion marks was levied on the Jewish community for the Paris murder, meaning 30000 Jewish men were rounded up and sent to concentration camps. The Consequences of 'Anschluss' The levels of violence in Austria against the Jews were far worse than in Germany. Vienna's 180000 Jews were the targets of regular attacks.
The Holocaust Denial The Holocaust the tragic event that happened in 1933 when the Germans wanted to take over power the whole world and this war lasted over more than 10 years the purpose of this whole world was just take over land and earn power. The leader of the Nazi was Adolf Hitler he was basically the one who wanted to take over the world and get rid of the Jewish population, but also it was not just the Jews it was other people that were also killed for no reason at all. So the total amount of victims that were killed during the holocaust was between 11 million and 17 million people that were the victims. Now the next part that I want to point out is telling the holocaust story from the Germans point of view apparently the deny that those many people were killed during this war and that the Jewish people were the one to start this war. But the Germans don’t like to the word “denial” as an appropriate term for this, instead
When a fire started in the Reichstag building, Hitler used it as a way to start series of terrorist acts against politicians he considered enemies (“Hitler, Adolf”). Hitler claimed that these politicians were part of a Communist plan. By influencing the public, Hitler gained special powers to “protect the nation against possible Communist acts of violence” (“Hitler, Adolf”). Hitler went a long way by being influential. Anyone that he didn’t want alive, didn’t have much of a chance to survive.
