What do you do when your homeland as you know it has been taken over by killers and you have nowhere to go and nobody to help you? This question could never have a correct answer. You could talk all you want, but when it comes down to it and it is you versus a whole army, there’s really nothing you can single handedly do to prevent an entire army from doing whatever they choose.

Little to no action made by opposing nations drove Hitler and the Nazi party to the complete dehumanization of Jews and others with no opposing response by the rest of the world until the damage was done and a terrible mark on history was made.

He blamed the Jewish people for everything going wrong in Germany. Getting Germany on their side and putting all the blame on the Jews, lead Hitler and the Nazi party to the starting of the Holocaust.
