The deceitfulness and complete inhumanity of the German people could rival the psychopathic-ness of the German government. The willingness to turn a blind eye to something happening at the end of your roads, or telling an SS officer about a Jew in your road was just not acceptable. So from this, I can conclude, that although the Government and leaders in German were mainly responsible for the Holocaust, the German people themselves played a huge part in helping them and turning a blind eye. As I said in my introduction, the historical anti-semitism of the world, and Europe in particular would have contributed to the Holocaust, but really it just added to the German governments role, and would not have been a huge party in the Holocaust itself.
In the article I’m Fine with God…but I Can’t Stand Christians Who Impose Their Morality on Others, authors Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz critique the Christian faith’s self ordained position of society’s moral leaders. They write that Christians have no right to be in this position because of their low esteem within the culture, their hypocrisy, their lack of credibility and the blatant rejection by society’s new post-modern view. Bickel and Jantz begin with a discussion on society’s view of Christians, none of which are positive. They state that this is a known fact that even Christians agree with. They then begin to compare the Christians with legalistic Pharisees.
They were blamed for many things since they were the people’s external scapegoat. People always look for others to blame, and during the challenging times the Jews were blamed. (Origins of the Holocaust 10) He also stated “When things started going wrong, however, Jews were rapidly made the scapegoat.” ( Origins of the Holocaust 26) In conclusion, the Jews were blamed. The Jews were considered outsiders of Germany; therefore, they were blamed. Germans did not want Jews a part of them.
Many reasons have come up from many people from around the world. For many days researching for reasons, Hitler was a very evil person but also an innocent one. According to the professor name David Cesarani said ‘’The Nazis weren’t the only people who hated the Jews during the 20th. But according to the Adolf Hitler’s book ‘’Mein Kampf’’ (My Struggle), his hatred of the Jewish people was influenced by Dr.Karl Lueger and the Christian Social Party. These are the reasons why Hitler hate the Jewish people, but what really happened to Hitler and the Germans?
The State Department did not even state the troubles of Jews under Nazi rule: its upper levels (especially Long) are guilty for this. Long should have been fired, and possibly put on trial, for allowing a genocide to occur. The part that is disturbing most in America's attitude toward the Holocaust, was that Roosevelt reached at point where he was fed up with the startling and overwhelming updates coming from Poland and such places concerning the Jews and he wanted to sit back and not have this over his head. We stopped the messages coming in so we could act like we really
Many religious conflicts are built from bigotry; however, only few will forever have an imprint on the world’s history. While some may leave a smear on the world’s past, some – like the homicide of Semitic people – may leave a scar. The Holocaust, closely tied to World War II, was a devastating and systematic persecution of millions of Jews by the Nazi regime and allies. Hitler, an anti-Semitic leader of the Nazis, believed that the Jewish race made the Aryan race impure. The Nazis did all in their power to annihilate the followers of Judaism, while the Jews attempted to rebel, rioted against the government, and united as one.
If everyone had came together then they might’ve been able to defeat the Nazis. The Holocaust left a scar that will never heal in the people and the nation’s heart.This disaster has brought many people to tears and made the people wonder how the Nazis can be so inhumane. What would have change if all the people who disagreed with the Nazi’s action all stood up together and fought the Nazis? Would less people die or will the people that tried to fight back get involved and gets killed too.
The causes and atrocities of an event like the Holocaust further the existence of the dark side of human nature. Before the Holocaust occurred, certain events foreshadowed danger for the Jewish community. For example, Germany suffered greatly after losing World War I. After the war ended and the stock market crashed at the end of the twenties, many countries were left in economic and political ruin, especially Germany. Some Germans blamed the Jewish population for the country’s loss because they were not faithful to Germany.
This also made it bet... ... middle of paper ... ...h is considered one of the worst. We learn about the Holocaust to learn about our villians and heroes, saviors and enemies of the war. We learn about the Holocaust so we know the consequences of racism and intolerance. We learn about the Holocaustso we can prevent history from repeating itself. Another reason we learn about the Holocaust is to understand that when political figures talk about purity of race, purity of religion, and discrimination it will not end well.
