with Jews at the top of his list. This list was called the undesirables list. Hitler believed that if he killed all the undesirables, their genes would not be able to be passed on, saving Germany. Hitler gathered as many undesirables as he could and placed them in concentration/death/labor/work camps where over eleven million people died for being something they couldn't help. You may ask yourself how people could allow Hitler to do such horrible things but he was a very smart man in politics.
HItler knew he was going down, so he was trying to initiate as much of his final solution as he could. When The Allies breached Germany, HItler killed himself and all the camps were liberated. This is why we study the Holocaust. So we may make sure that evil may never triumph, by giving good men a chance to do something.
The Influence of Hitler on the Minds and Ethics of a Nation It is amazing how the influence of one man, Adolf Hitler, could control the minds and ethics of a complete nation. The prejudice and hate that dwelled inside of him, killed an entire group of individuals. The Holocaust is the most horrifying crime against humanity of all times. Hitler, in an attempt to establish the pure Aryan race, decided that all of the mentally ill, gypsies, non supporters of Nazism, and Jews were to be eliminated from the German population. In January 1941, in a meeting with his top officials, the 'final solution' was decided.
Because of the Versailles Treaty, created at the end of world war 1, Germany agreed to the the bill for all reparations and had to reduce armed force(Crowe, 2014). The nazis blamed their troubles on the easiest target they could find, and the weekly Nazi newspaper got the news across quickly. Soon, those Jewish people with ape-like features became the biggest enemy; this led to anti-semitism. Reichstag, or the German Parliament, was taken over by Hitler and all of his greed(L, D. (1999). This was part of the plan to destroy all of the Jews.
In 1933 Adolf was appointed chancello... ... middle of paper ... ...ple of what we call a genocide. It was the mass murder of certain groups of people in order to create an Aryan race. We know what the Holocaust was and why WWII was fought, but there is still the question: Why do we study the Holocaust? Hitler rose to power by gaining the support of his own country and government. One may ask themselves how such a terrible person could be elected to be chancellor?
Hitler was in many cases what led to the Holocaust. In conclusion, these were the main reasons for the Holocaust taking place. However I think that definitely the foremost important reason for the Holocaust ever happening was centuries of Europe being anti - Semitic. Despite the fact Adolf Hitler is very responsible for in which the ways he convinced so many Germans into hating these 'impure' innocent people, he was not entirely at fault for the holocaust happening. He was influenced very much by other anti - Semitic leaders, there could have possibly been another leader and public speaker who could have for filled the role that he did for the Holocaust.
He had a group of leaders, the SS, who were Nazis that willingly took any task given, including the mass murder of millions of Jews due to his belief that they were enemies to Germany. German citizens were talked into participating or believing in the most extreme of things, like violent pogroms, deportations, attacks, and executions. Through the novel’s perspicacity of the Third Reich, readers can see how Hitler’s reign was a controversial time period summed up by courage, extremity, and most important of all, loyalty. The main purpose of the book was to emphasize how far fear of Hitler’s power, motivation to create a powerful Germany, and loyalty to the cause took Germany during the Third Reich. During the Third Reich, Germany was able to successfully conquer all of Eastern Europe and many parts of Western Europe, mainly by incentive.
Adolf Hitler believed that “those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.” That is how he viewed everything, for him in order to gain power you have to concur and the weak should perish and the strong should prevail. In this case I would be the Germans who shall prevail and prosper according to Adolf Hitler. “Hitler killed six million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife.
Diverseness unifies a nation, while prejudice and discrimination cause emotional and physical separation among the inhabitants of a country; "A nation divided cannot stand." Adolph Hitler and the Nazis, however, chose to follow their theories and ideas of creating a "supreme race" despite the contradiction with the universal principles that acknowledge the power of diversity. Jews, Gypsies, Poles, Slavs, the physically and mentally disabled, Jehovah's witnesses, homosexuals, political prisoners, dissenting clergy, and others who were considered unworthy of being a member of society, all fell Nazi victims. Over eleven million diverse, innocent people were slaughtered by the Nazis as a result of their desire to create an identical race of people. Hitler believed Marxism contrived to bestow the world to the Jews.
The Rise of Hitler Hitler was very manipulative before he even took over as dictator, and even before he was announced the Chancellor of Germany. Hitler’s plan all along was to become the dictator of Germany, even before he was... ... middle of paper ... ... things up to the worst of it all. The readers can take away that just because you believe something different then somebody else, doesn’t make them or you a bad person or different in any way. This topic shows that long before the concentration camps, Jews were being singled out and treated terribly. The study of the Holocaust matters to show people what happened so that others can learn from it and learn to accept people no matter what their religion.
