Holocaust happened because Hitler and the Nazis were racist. They believed the German people were a 'master race', who were superior to others. They even created a league table of 'races' with the Aryans at the top and with Jews, Gypsies and black people at the bottom. These 'inferior' people were seen as a threat to the purity and strength of the German nation. When the Nazis came to power they persecuted these people, took away their human rights and eventually decided that they should be exterminated.
Jews are the reason that jobs are not available for every German. If it were not for those filthy creatures, Germany and the rest of the world would have a perfect utopia. However, in order to achieve that Utopia, we must eliminate those filthy Jews…. and with Hitler as our leader, we will be able to in time. 1 Year later Journal entry #2: fall of 1942 The war has been going on for 1 year now and the Allied Powers are weakening our forces.
The Holocaust – A Time of Persecution and Murder Lisa M. Turner HIS 204 Kimberly Roff April 5, 2010 The Holocaust – A Time of Persecution and Murder There have always been wars and countries wanting to be more powerful than the next one. With each head of power came different beliefs and ideas about who was better than the other whether it was based on power, race, color, or religious beliefs. During the mid-twentieth century a man came to power that would affect the world so harshly that it will never be forgotten. In January 1933, Adolf Hitler became the chancellor of Germany. With him came the Nazi party beliefs of world dominance and being of the superior Aryan race.
This made people give up hope on the democracy as it was not working and caused people to resort to extremist groups which made the Nazis seem like they were the solution to the problem. This links to Germans viewing the Nazis as an alternative party to support. The rise in unemployment and a renewed fear of communist uprisings gave Hitler’s messages a new importance which increased the support for the Nazis. They had Hitler, someone who could be seen as strong party leader, to be seen as being someone who could prevent a similar crisis from happening again. The Nazi’s had also made promises to solve the problems and promised most groups in Germany what they wanted such as being promised jobs, employers having restored profits, farmers higher prices and shopkeepers protection against competition.
How did hitler control germany ? It cannot be doubted that Nazi Germany was the most destructive political regime of the 20th century, not only because it unleashed World War II or instigated the holocaust but because of its impact on German society. In fact, Hitler’s control of German population depended on many factors : * One party state * The Hitler youth * Fear * Propaganda * The Gestapo The enabling act (23 March 1933) made Hitler the all-powerful “Fuhrer” of Germany. The law against the formation of parties (14 July 1933) declared the Nazis party in Germany. It became an offence to belong to another Party than the Nazis party.
The Holocaust The year was 1939; most of the world was just climbing out of the Great Depression and looking forward to a better decade ahead. Little did anyone realize the consequences of Adolf Hitler’s power he had gained within the German government and people, or the devastating world crisis that would result from it. Hitler was elected into power, he did not force his way in. Once he gained power in 1932, he convinced many Germans that a citizen’s sole reason for existence was to serve the state. He also blamed Germany’s difficulties on the Jews but did not tell the people his true intention was to exterminate them.
Hitler’s speech manipulated the people of Germany. He could be considered a true leader of Germany. The idea for the massive eradication of Jews could have been influenced by World War I. Also, writers such as Eugen Duhring wrote about the idea of completely eliminating Jews. Hitler was seen as “virulently “anti-semetic” by the mid 1920s.
Although Hitler was appointed chancellor, the Nazi party was still outnumbered in the cabinet, so when the election was called in February 1933 Hitler knew that he must once again win the support of the public. At the same time a Communist Dutch named Marinus Van De Lubbe burnt down the Reichstag building which coincidently tremendously helped the Nazi party to consolidate its power. The event caused country wide panic and Hitler and the Nazi party used this panic to their advantage. They blamed communism for the fire and made it seem as if the country was in a state of emergency because of the threat of communism. This ultimately allowed for Hitler and the Nazi party to implement the "Reichstag Fire Decree" which allowed the government to restrict the liberty of the public.
