The Nazis are entirely to blame for the Holocaust because they encouraged violence throughout Europe, and even forced fellow German citizens to join in their fight against the Jews. The Nazis' practiced anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism is defined as “hostility to or prejudice against Jews” (Archive.adl.org,“Antisemitism”), and the Nazis took that concept to the extreme. Hitler and other Nazi leaders viewed the Jews not as a religious group, but as a harmful race which would weaken the other, more superior races. Some might say the Nazis' hatred toward the Jews was fueled by fear.
The Nazis targeted anyone who they thought were “unfit” for their society. This is an example of how discriminations and social justice issues can destroy a society or harm it forever. To this day, the percentage of Jews in the world and Germany in particular is much smaller than it was at one time and from what it should be today. In conclusion, the holocaust was an extremely terrible event in world history and in the time frame of the second world war. There was large amount of discrimination and anti-Semitism against the Jews and others who were different from the societal norm in Germany at the time.
The Holocaust--the merciless massacre of over eleven million defenseless, innocent people, six million of which were Jewish--can be directly linked to the hatred and racism brought about by Nazi propaganda. The people of Germany let their minds be controlled and learned to despise the Jews. Hate is a powerful weapon that has the power to kill without mercy (Holocaust no pagination).

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. He concluded that all of the undesirable people need to be killed, as has been mentioned he manufactured many concentration camps or death camps all over Europe. “Undesirable people” a lot of people might think, what does this word really mean, does it only referred to 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.

This made German citizens turn a blind eye to the discrimination toward Jewish citizens. It began with discrimination that progressively worsened, Jews were then forced to move into overcrowded ghettos, and methodically shipped off to the barbarous concentration camps (“Jewish Life during the Holocaust”). Life during the holocaust was a brutal time for the world, but most importantly for all of the Jews in Germany. Jewish individuals were continually discriminated and bullied by Nazis. Using propaganda and other forms of persuasion, they turned Germans against Jews.
Britton Stokes Mrs. Williams World Geography Honors April 23, 2014 The Genocide of the Jewish Population of Europe Imagine if your family, your friends, your own life, and your very way of life was at risk of being sent to a camp or killed by the Axis Powers of Nazi Germany. Over six million people of the Jewish faith were killed in World War II. All if not most of the Jews killed were completely innocent, and did nothing wrong. Webster’s Dictionary defines genocide as “The deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.” Genocides are a bane to the civilized world. Intolerance, evil political leaders, and blame bring them on.

Genocide and the Holocaust Holocaust I've thought, and thought about resistance in the Holocaust and I've come to this comprehension: No phrase or verse or detailed explanation can illustrate the level of terror and oppression that took place. The Holocaust was probably the most arguably infamous series of despiteful human rights and cold blooded murder in modern history. The rise of the powerful Adolf Hitler has set his war against Jewish people, Jewish culture and Jewish memory. If the twisted philosophy of the Nazi regime was to eradicate Jewish memory, then it is our duty to remember the Jewish lives that perished and to keep Jewish memory alive. There was approximately six million Jews were sent to death camps and killed during World War II (1939-1945).
