Maddie Ceculski Mrs. Ball College Prep English 12 February 25, 2014 Title The Jewish people kept getting one thing after another taken away from them because Hitler wanted to make them feel like they are not human. All of the laws passed leading up to the Night of the Broken kept increasing Hitler's power and ability to persecute the Jews because there was little reaction to his actions; the violence and persecution increased leading to the final solution because of this indifference. Background As Hitler was rising in power, his plan all along was to “make Germany better,” as he thought he was doing. In his eyes, making Germany better was everyone being equal. He wasn’t going to hesitate to take the first chance he could to jump on the Jews.
They believed that the Jews had grabbed to much economic influence. What makes they hate the Jew because they believed that they were intrusive too much politics and culture. They believed that the Jews were biologically and racially distinct and that there was a kind of biological struggle for dominance over the entire human race between the Jews and everybody else. At the final, Mr. Cesarani concluded this wasn’t something that could be solved through religious debate and argument, the conversation of the Jews. However, according to a website Holocaust History had mention when Hitler hated the Jews, he blame... ... middle of paper ... ...ermany, to have his power and to be the most evil dictator in the whole World War II history.
Nazi officials blamed the Jews to have caused the riots (Jewish Virtual Library). “The Nazis would blame Herschel Grynszpan in particular and Jews in general for Kristallnacht” (Fitzgerald 60). The Nazis need a reason as to why they were getting rid of the Jews which was why they blamed the Jews for everything. The laws leading up to the “Night of the Broken Glass” was the start of the Holocaust and because the Jews or the Germans didn’t react to the laws or complain about the laws Hitler continued to enforce them, working on his plan to get rid of all the Jews.
Children were easily misled by propaganda, and were indoctrinated into Nazi beliefs. Adults were also bombarded with anti- Semitic propaganda. Germans had to do everything in their power to eliminate all Jews from Germany. Many Germans believed the Nazi propaganda blaming the Jews for Germany’s economic and political problems. Hitler seemed afraid of the Jews, as he believed they were a threat to the Aryan race, because they played a prominent role in certain spheres of the German daily life.
Hitler's fervent anti-semistism played a huge part in the persecution of Jews during World War II. The Jews were frequently referred to in Hitler's autobiography "Mein Kampf" and Hitler had made plain his hated for them. References to the "filthy Jew" litter the book. In one section, Hitler wrote about how the Jews planned to "contaminate" the blood of pure Germans: "The Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end...spying on the unsuspicious German girl he plans to seduce...He wants to contaminate her blood and remove her from the bosom of her own people. The Jew hates the white race and wants to lower its cultural level so that the Jews might dominate."
His behaviour reflected on Hitler as when he did not get a job as an artist he blamed it on the Jews. Hitler then quoted in 1919 ' that he wanted complete removal of the Jews. However this quote was ambiguous as removal could mean by exportation or extermination. Then in 1939 Hitler wanted to destroy the Jews due to ww1, following Germany having to sign the armistice on the 8th November in 1918, feeling for the Jews being known as scapegoats. Contrasting that , we have structurailists believing that mass killings of the Jews only happened because of the complications to nazi plans for Jews that became so due to war.
Source B seems to be sympathetic to Goebbles, and as it is written by the Nazis I think it may be very biased and untrustworthy. I think source A is the most useful because it is against the Nazis, and it was originally written by a Nazi who would usually put a good name in for the Nazi Government. Source B on the other hand is written by the Nazi's and is in their favour, as it was written by the Nazi Supreme Court. Source C gives the impression that Krystallnaught was planned by the Nazis with the SS men dressed as civilians carrying out the attacks. Also we can see that all the local crowds were 'horrified' by the acts of the Nazis, so the source says it couldn't have been the civilians who carried out these attacks.
To arise with, Hitler was an evil man in the eyes of the Jews and most people because of his part he had in the Third Reich. Furthermore, the name “Third Reich” was adopted by the Nazi party from the Roman Empire, but they put it to different use compared to the Romans. After WWI, the Nazis and Hitler felt that the Jews and the liberal politicians had betrayed them and made Germany lose World War I. This was completely wrong to assume anything like that and they seemed to have this complete hatred towards the Jews. While, Hitler was a part of his party he was sentenced in jail on December 1923 for trying to overthrow the government (which had been formed after they lost WWI).
Even before they could take actions on exterminating the Jews they had to establish who was Jewish and who was not. According to The Jewish Virtual Library, the Nazi’s singled out the Jews because they felt threatened by them (“The Holocaust-36 Questions and Answers about the Holocaust”). To the Nazi Party, the world was a constant battle ground for a fight between races. Being the extreme nationalists that they were, they saw the Jewish race (which isn’t even a race to begin with; it is a religion) as a barrier to the Aryan race reaching their rightfully deserved supremacy (“36 Questions and Answers about the Holocaust” 16). The master plan of this mass destruction of Jews is what the Nazi’s called the “Final Solution” in the Wannsee Conference in Berlin on January 20, 1942 (“36 Questions and Answers about the Holocaust” 7).
Hitler believed that the German people needed living space and he thought that the Jewish people only made for a nuisance. He wanted to move them and not kill them. Hitler does not state that he wishes to bring physical harm to the Jewish people. In speeches he states that he wish to 'annihilate' the Jews from Europe, not kill them. (Speech made in January 1939) Early on in Hitler's campaign there is no direct evidence that places Hitler in a state of movement where he has included the physical exterm... ... middle of paper ... ...rman race, not the destruction of others in Germany.
