There is no way to determine the exact number of lives taken during the Holocaust, but six millions is the widely accepted death toll for Jewish victims and five millions is the accepted ... ... middle of paper ... ... extermination of every living thing in certain areas of the Kurdish north. [IMAGE] Over a period of three years spanning from 1986 to 1989, some 182,000 innocent people were killed through the use of chemical weapons. Is this not reminiscent of the type of evil that fueled Adolf Hitler? In closing, the Holocaust is, and always will be, one of the most disturbingly evil events in modern history. In 1933, the Jewish population of Europe was estimated at over nine million.
Adolf Hitler and His Regime Adolf Hitler and his regime had a devastating effect on the twentieth century. Hitler’s third Reich (1933-1934) was supposed to last for 1000 years but only lasted twelve. This evil man legalised the destruction of an entire race of people. He plunged “the world into one of the bloodiest and most destructive wars in history.” (Shirer, 1961) Hitler was a genius but an evil genius. He had the ability to convince millions of German’s of his ideas to extent the power of Germany over Europe, to unite all Germans in a nation and to destroy millions of Jewish people.
During this horrific period in history, eleven million people belonging to the "undesirable" groups laid out in Mein Kampf were murdered in one of the most inhumane ways imaginable. They were taken to death camps, labor camps, and concentration camps, where they were malnourished, sleep deprived, and forced to do very strenuous labor. By the time the camps were liberated, 73% of those that were sent to them had died. Although Hitler rose to power in 1933, some would argue that the Holocaust did not really begin until 1935, when the first of the Nuremberg Race Laws were passed. The Nuremberg Race Laws were a set of laws designed to "Aryanize" Germany.
Adolf Hitler was not originally born in germany, he was actually born in austria. He became a german dictator that killed over eleven million people? Its actually quite intresting how he was able to work his up to dictator. He starts out as a young boy who really just wanted to be an artist. Once he grew up he tried to get into a very good university that specialise in art.
When people hear the name Adolf Hitler, they rarely think of a great leader. Not only was he responsible for WWII, he killed and enslaved millions of innocent Jewish people in what is known as the Holocaust. However, many fail to realize Hitler’s great accomplishments. He was a genius of sorts preferring fine art, literature and had a very distinct love of nature. Hitler was responsible for starting an Anti-smoking campaign, regulated hunting practices in Germany, aided in German technological advances, and even extended the German freeways or Autobahns.
We remember the Holocaust, a time of horror, pain, and suffering. Approximately eleven million people were exterminated, 54.5% being Jew, and 45.5% being another kind of an Undesirable. All of this disaster was planned by Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler. Him and his men took over parts of the world to dominate and create a perfect race. Someone with blue eyes, blonde hair, and fair skin.
The Holocast is the name of the Geonocide, or mass murder of Jews, Romas(gypsies), Slavics, communists, socialists, Jehovas Witnesses, homosexuals, and people with medical handicaps. This geonocide, led by Adolf Hitler, who was the chancellor and future dictator of Germany, resulted in the death of six million Jews and thousands of other innocents. The Holocaust is arguably the worst thing that has happened in our history. In our modern world we still have racist and religious problems accross the world particularly in the Middle East and Africa. By studying the Holocaust we can learn many things and gain a perspective on our lives.

He was rejected from the Vienna School of the Arts twice. World War I broke out when Hitler was a teenager, and he eagerly volunteered for the German army. He was a soldier for a few years, and while he was fighting learned a lot about German politics. He disagreed with many of the political platforms and processes of the Germans. When the war ended, he started to protest against the government.
Adolf Hitler is one of the most well known figures of the twentieth century. His power was far reaching and exceptionally destructive. Because of Hitler, one out of every three european jews lost their lives. Entire communities suddenly disappeared and over ten-million people were murdered because of his racial, ethnic, and political policies (Bigelow). In Adolf Hitler’s push towards a harsh dictatorship, through his use of propaganda, strategic military power, and his mass genocidal tactics, Adolf Hitler negatively impacted Germany and eventually the world because of his role in World War Two.
