The holocaust activated by Adolf Hitler, who be permeated with the vindictiveness of the Jews. After he created Anti-Semitism in Germany and killed most of the Jews in Germany. Afterwards he continued to spread Anti-Semitism all over Europe. He desired of power to rule the world, and had killed more than 20 million people during World War II. 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.
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).

The Ally forces pressured Germany to create a homeland for those who suffered through the Holocaust. Over the decades that followed, ordinary Germans struggled with the Holocaust’s bitter legacy, as survivors and the families of victims tried to regain their property and wealth that was taking away during the Holocaust. In 1953, the German government made payments to individual Jews and to the Jewish people as a way of apologizing for the crimes which were committed by the German people.
The Holocaust is known as the mass murder of approximately 6 million Jews during World War II throughout German territory. This genocide was sponsored by the Nazi-Germans, led by Adolf Hitler. These persecutions were carried out in various stages, the final stage is known as “The final solution of the Jews.” Many methods were executed by the Nazi’s to strip Jews of their rights such as establishing laws, concentration camps where they would work until they died, resulting in the genocide of the Jewish people. These concentration camps executed the most extreme form of power and bureaucracy where everyone was forced to obey one persons order, Adolf Hitler. The primary document “The Commandant of Auschwitz” by Rudolf Hoess demonstrates the span of horror faced by the Jews and those detailed to work the concentration camps by the Nazi regime during what is known as the final solution to the Jewish question.
Ultimately, Hitler was successful with the genocide of the harmless Jewish people in Germany, the council in Salem wasn’t as successful, the council tortured and killed many innocent people. The Jewish people were targeted, hunted, tortured, and killed, just for being Jewish, Hitler came to office on January 20, 1933; he believed that the German race had superiority over the Jews in Germany. The Jewish peoples’ lives were destroyed; they were treated inhumanly for the next 12 years, “Between 1933 and 1945, more than 11 million men, women, and children were murdered in the Holocaust. Approximately six million of these were Jews” (Levy). Hitler blamed a lot of the problems on the Jewish people, being a great orator Hitler got the support from Germany, killing off millions of Jews and other people, the German people thought it was the right thing to do.
The Horrific Holocaust Nearly six million Jews were killed and murdered in what historians have called "The Holocaust." The word 'holocaust' is a conflagration, a great raging fire that consumes in its path all that lives. In the years between 1933 and 1945, the Jews of Europe were marked for total annihilation. Moreover, anti-Semitism was given legal sanction. It was directed by Adolf Hitler and managed by Heinne Himmler, Reinhard Heydrich and Adolf Eichmann.
. Of the nine million Jews that resided from the holocaust about two thirds were killed. Over one million Jewish children were killed in the holocaust. Hitler was harsh to the Jews he hurt peoples family’s by killing they’re family members. Putting them in jail for no reason.
The Holocaust The Holocaust was the mass murder of European Jews by the nazis during the second world war. It took place from the 30th of January 1933 to the end of the war in Europe on May 8th 1945. The nazi dictator Adolph Hitler planned to wipe out the entire Jewish population as a part of his plan to conquer the world. Holocaust refers to any widespread human disaster but it's special meaning is the annihilations of six million Jewish men, women and children by the nazi regime. The Jews were singled out for extermination because the nazis had a hatred for them as they considered jews as a race whose goal was world domination and was an obstruction to the Aryan dominance.
The Holocaust was a tragic genocide which killed 11 million people. Out of that 11 million, 6 million were Jews. The others who were killed were the gypsies, homosexuals, and the disabled. “The Holocaust illustrates the consequences of prejudice, racism and stereotyping on a society. It forces us to examine the responsibilities of citizenship and confront the powerful ramifications of indifference and inaction.” (Tim Holden) While the Holocaust was happening, Germany was fighting in WWII.
