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.
Adolf Hitler still had lots of plans on his hands. Finally, in 1941, Hitler ordered the beginning of mass deportations from Germany to ghetto in Eastern Europe. The war happened because Adolf Hitler wanted sole control of Germany and also most of Europe. The reason the Nazi Genocide occurred is because Hitler did not like the Jews, Communists, Gypsies, homosexuals, and others. Hitler ordered the higher Nazi soldiers to build concentration camps all over Germany and Poland to detain, deport, and also house the prisoners.
The Holocaust started because of a man named Adolf Hitler. War World II lasted from 1939 to 1945. The people that were involved during this time period were mainly the Jews and the Germans. One of his wishes was for specific types of groups to be gone and extinct from this world. The concentration camps helped him make that wish come true.
Hitler hoped the Jews would die of starvation or from disease as the ghettos had horrible conditions. Hitler eventually grew impatient and created massive concentration camps all over Europe. The aim of these camps was to exterminate Jews much faster. The Nazis eventually built massive gas chambers. The gas chambers lead to the deaths of thousands of Jews.
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.
Historians, Bracher and Jackel believed the holocaust was a completely intentional act, as Wyman states: “Intentionalism anchored Nazi behaviour in Hitler’s and his cohorts' deeply felt anti-Semitism, which they had formulated well before their ascent to power; once in power, they had put into practice what their intention had been all along.” (Wyman, p.419, 1996) Intentionalists argue everything in the Nazi period, was a deliberate move towards Hitler’s ultimate goals. Hitler was a fanatical anti-Semite, who committed himself to the extermination of the Jews from early in his career. Intentionalist historian, Goldhagen argues Hitler had a ‘blueprint’, for the Holocaust, as Morris
Dr. Nyiszli wanted to make it clear that the Nazis were willing to kill men, women, and children not only because there intense hatred for Jews but also for research that was conducted through dissecting the human corpses. Children were killed just for pure research. The main causes of death at Auschwitz were either the gas chambers, a lethal injection of chloroform, or a bullet to the back of the head. The unlucky ones were the ones that were not killed right away because they either died from starvation or fatigue. “Don’t save him, you’ll only be prolonging agony” (108).
Life Inside the Gates Between the years nineteen thirty-three to nineteen forty-five during World War II, during the Holocaust, a man named Adolf Hitler had taken power in Germany. He had begun the extermination of any Jewish person, or anyone who was against Hitler's actions. To exterminate Jewish people there were many concentration camps that were built and used. These camps are made up of solid concrete walls, large gates, and one purpose, to keep whoever or whatever goes in and make sure they never come out. While many people felt well informed about Nazi concentration camps, most do not truly understand the inner workings of the camps.
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.
“The killing of some six million Jews by the Nazis during WWII. To the Nazis, the holocaust was the ‘Final Solution’ to the ‘Jewish Problem,’ and would help them establish a pure German master race. Much of the killing took place in concentration camps, such as Auschwitz and Dachau. The ‘holocaust’, a term applied by the Nazis to the genocide of European Jews during WWII. Before instituting the Final Solution, the Nazi government had abolished Jews’ rights destroyed and confiscated their property, and confined them in concentration camps.” (The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy).
