The Bureaucrat Killer ¨I will leap into my grave laughing because the feeling that I have 5 million human beings on my conscience is for me a source of extraordinary satisfaction.¨(www.brainyquote.com) This is quoted from Adolf Eichmann, a Nazi SS-Obersturmfuhrer, or a Lieutenant-Colonel. Eichmann was one of the main organizers of the Holocaust. He was a high-ranking Nazi leader whose job was to move ´undesirables´ to the concentration camps. What brought Eichmann to the Nazis and what did he contribute?
Adolf Eichmann was born in Solingen, Germany, on March 19, 1906. Adolf Eichmann was deeply involved with the creation and operation of the "final solution to the Jewish question". He came up with the idea of the deportation of Jews into ghettos and helped to formulate and work the idea of labor camps otherwise known as death camps, and went about concentrating Jews in isolated areas with murderous efficiency. He took great pride in the role he played in the death of around about six million, mainly European Jews. Involvement in the holocaust:
Following the devastation and carnage of the Second World War, the world faced many critical and momentous issues. One of these was the treatment of the ex-Nazi officials who had committed some of the most monstrous crimes in history. In the aftermath of the war, many of these officials were rounded up and put on trial in Nuremberg. However, Adolf Eichmann, the designer of the Final Solution responsible for the systematic murder of millions of Jews, managed to escape. Hence, although the Nuremberg Trials condemned the Third Reich and punished culpable Nazi officials for crimes against humanity, it was not until Adolf Eichmann’s capture, trial, and sentencing that Jews gained a personal sense of closure and justice. The multitude of horrifying testimonies and exposing documents presented during the trial confronted the entire world with the full scope of the atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis during the Holocaust.
We all have gone through troubling times in our life. We have all experienced pain and loss one way or another. The Holocaust was a completely different kind of horror, and Adolf Hitler was the sole cause of World War II and the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a terrible time for the Jewish people of Germany. Hitler had two plans for Germany, the camp life was traumatizing and the aftermath of the Holocaust left Germany both physically and mentally broken.
Genocide and the Holocaust Holocaust I've thought, and thought about resistance in the Holocaust and I've come to this comprehension: No phrase or verse or detailed explanation can illustrate the level of terror and oppression that took place. The Holocaust was probably the most arguably infamous series of despiteful human rights and cold blooded murder in modern history. The rise of the powerful Adolf Hitler has set his war against Jewish people, Jewish culture and Jewish memory.
The Holocaust was a terrible time. This terrible time was all a plan, led by Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler was sent to prison for treason. Even after he got out, he worked with the government of Germany. He even rose to be the Dictator of Germany, with the luck of the last leader's passing. He blamed others for his "struggle." He passed laws, to make it legal to descriminate and to single out groups of people, races, and religions.
