As Albert Einstein once said, “The world is too dangerous to live in, not because of the people who do evil, but because of the people who sit and let it happen.” The horrific accounts told of the Holocaust, inside the ghettos, symbolize the negligence shown to others during World War II. World War II started with Germany attacking Poland on September 1, 1939 (World War II in Europe). Many citizens of the surrounding countries were terrified because of the horrendous acts they heard of. Hitler took over and tried to kill as many Jews as he could. The word ghetto did not originate during the time of the Holocaust; ghettos have been referred to the sixteenth century (Ghettos).
Germans targeted Jews the most among all these groups. Jewish culture greatly differs from German culture, such as religion, language, and many others. Jews did not have their own country and settled all around the world. Germans believed that the Jews wanted to take over the country and this world especially due to the cleverness of the Jews.

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. Furthermore, the genocide had many social science factors that caused the opposition between the Jews and Nazis. Both the German economy and the Nuremberg Laws stimulated the Holocaust; nevertheless, a majority of the Nazis’ and Hitler’s actions towards Jews were because of the victims’ ethnicity. The German economy complicated the Nazis’ financial situation because of events that happened before the Holocaust. Due to the poor condition of the economy, the funds made traced back to the Jews, causing more disagreements to arise.
Holocaust as the Worst Manmade Disaster The Holocaust was a terrible historical event. It took the lives of many innocent people. As Nazi Germany gained control of one country after another in World War II, many civilians were killed. These crimes weren't as bad as the massive and deliberate and well-planned killing of more than fifteen million people. Although the Holocaust was the worst manmade disaster in recent history, it taught the world the value of human life.
He would do that using Concentration Camps that were brutal and incomprehensible. Concentration Camps during the Holocaust had a huge outcome of Jews and the situations they faced because of their religion. That’s not OK. In the late 1930’s when Concentration camps started to grow in Poland and other countries surrounding that area, they were on average killing over 1000 people each day/week. Why was killing so many innocent Jews necessary to Hitler?
The Third Reich sought to eliminate the Jews because the Germans viewed the Jews as parasites that were infecting their country and the world. With economic and physical pressure, Germany was able to encourage the Jews to flee Germany, however, not many left because of restrictions. The Nazis created the final solution in order to quickly eliminate all of the Jews that existed primarily in Germany. Through the use of medical experimentation, gas chambers, and the crematorium, around 6 million Jews were killed. Works Cited Langbein, Hermann.
