Auschwitz: Overview of the Concentration Camp The Holocaust was one of the most horrifying crimes against humanity. "Hitler, in an attempt to establish the pure Aryan race, decided that Jews, Poles, Soviet prisoners of war, Roma (Gypsies), and homosexuals amongst others were to be eliminated from the German population. One of his main methods of exterminating these “undesirables” was through the use of concentration and death camps. In January of 1941, Adolf Hitler and his top officials decided to make their “final solution” a reality. Their goal was to eliminate the Jews and the “impure” from the entire German population.
The holocaust activated by Adolf Hitler, who be permeated with the vindictiveness of the Jews. After he created Anti-Semitism in Germany and killed most of the Jews in Germany. Afterwards he continued to spread Anti-Semitism all over Europe. He desired of power to rule the world, and had killed more than 20 million people during World War II. He had made the wrong decision ever, as he adjudged that all the Jews were trumpery, barren, and witless, hence he decided to extirpate the Jews all over the world.

Hitler - A Method to His Madness The Holocaust found its origins in Hitler's deep rooted hatred of the Jewish Society. This quote from Hitler's diary is an example of his feelings toward Jews... "The Jew has never founded any civilization, though he has destroyed hundreds. He must spread as a disease spreads. Already he has destroyed Russia; now it is the turn of Germany and, with his envious instinct for destruction he seeks to disintegrate the national spirit of the Germans and to pollute their blood." 1 Hitler believed that there was one race with a "natural advantage"2 over the others, and this race was the Aryans.
