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. Hitler’s plans for Germany were both meaningless and cruel. His first goal was to establish what he thought was the ‘supreme’ race, Aryan. Aryan people are tall and skinny, with blonde hair, blue eyes, and light skin (FYI: Hitler had none of these characteristics, and rumor has it that his grandmother was Jewish.). Every other person was not considered human to him, especially Jewish people. Hitler hated Jewish people the most because he thought that because of their beliefs and living style they lost World War I. Also according to Hitler, Jews were maggots, parasites, vampire spiders sucking blood, and vermin. Hitler thought it was not enough to only eliminate the ‘enemies’ of the Aryan race, but they also needed space to live. This is when his second goal came into play. He started relocating them, starving them, shutting down their shops and many more things. The worst part was that he lied to them when he said they were relocating them, he was really taking them to concentration camps. When Hitler said they were relocating them to someplace else to live for a while he just dumped all of them into these concentration camps. He ordered many of them to be killed right at the start of getting them getting to these camps. They could be killed in gas chambers, shot in front of eve... ... middle of paper ... ...horror in 1945. Hitler then committed suicide with his wife, Eva Braun, on April 30, 1945. Hitler shot himself and Eva took cyanide along with all of their children. This tragic event claimed the lives of six million Jewish men, women, and children. It also affected more than just Germany. It affected Russia, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Greece, Poland, Czech Republic, and also Germany. Plus Israel was created as a place for all the Jewish homeless people to live. As you can see, the Holocaust left a scare on the world today. In the end, at least Hitler did not take over the entire world. This is what he was aiming for and would have done if the Ally powers did not put a stop to him. So next time a bad thing happens to you, remember that nothing as painful as the Holocaust will ever happen to you.
