There was approximately six million Jews were sent to death camps and killed during World War II (1939-1945). So what do you think that led up to this? Why Adolf Hitler hatred towards Jews is so strong that made him did the inhuman cruel murder? Well the resolution lies in the ethnic undercurrents that ran beneath the peripheral of Germany and the world. The Holocaust was the execution of the Jews and other people whom Hitler considered mediocre.
Ghettos and concentration camps were set up to isolate all who the Nazis did not qualify as “pure” (Holocaust). The Holocaust took place between1939 to 1945 (“Introduction”). The Darfur-Sudan Genocide began in 2003 and is still going on today (“Darfur Genocide”). A militia of government-supported people called the Janjaweed has been killing and destroying villages of non-Arab people (“Darfur Genocide”). Al-Bashir general of the National Islamic Front has been leading the persecution (“Darfur: A History” 18).
The Holocaust is an event that will live forever in infamy in the minds and hearts of everyone that knows its story and of the suffering the victims experienced. The victims of what was mainly Jewish descent were persecuted against by the Nazi regime Because of their anti-Semitic views that led to the largest and most famous Genocide in the history of mankind. The story of the Holocaust spread and was spread around the globe until over time a few facts became mixed or misinterpreted. These misinterpretations gave anti-Semitics and Neo-Nazis what they needed to stir up controversy on the subject to pull blame away from the Nazi Regime. These ideals are wrong but have led to debates over what is right and wrong on the subject and the people who tell the lies need to be proven wrong.
Many Europeans thought Jews were a threat to their land. The Holocaust was a type of Genocide. The Germans were taking Jewish people to Concentration Camps and killing them. (World War II: The Holocaust pg. 1) The Jewish didn’t do anything to deserve this.
As we know, the World War II was the great war that we will never forget. The war, which slay millions people, even innocent children whose know nothing about what was going on. The war that brought the greatest holocaust to this world. This worse holocaust started in Germany by a man named Adolf Hitler, who concluded that the Jews were the nationality which made the German people impoverished. Consequently, the war broadened all over the world which including Japan, America, Russia,and Australia.
Genocide is a reality that has ended millions of family trees, changing the course of the future and leaving a massive mark that the human race can never forget. The word genocide was created to describe the mass murdering of the Jewish people along with Slavic, Romanians, Greeks, African-Europeans, homosexuals, and mentally or physically disabled people. This certain genocide was named The Holocaust, or “Sacrifice by Fire” (Holocaust Facts). There are also more recent genocides, like the Rwandan Genocide located in Africa, a land where warlords and murderers control whole countries and kill there people for sport, or their beliefs. But let us focus on the Holocaust, a Genocide where one man and his fellow officers was capable of killing 11 million people with their influence on the German people, all the while fighting a war on two fronts between the Allies, like the British, Canadian, and American forces from the west, and the might of the Soviet Union in the east.
The Holocaust is one of the most famous genocides that have occurred to this date which makes it one of the many reasons to want to research this genocide. The Holocaust occurred during World War Two in Europe from nineteen ninety-one to nineteen ninety-five. Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazis who lead them to kill millions of Jews, including other groups like gypsies, the disabled, communists, socialists, Jehovah’s witnesses, and homosexuals. Concentration camps were built around Europe; Oranienburg, Esterwegen, Dachau, Lichtenburg, Auschwitz, Buchenwald, and more. Jews and other groups were transported to these camps.
