Adolf Hitler came to power over Germany in January of 1933. He hated Jews and blamed them for everything bad that had ever happened to Germany. Hitler’s goal in life was to eliminate the Jewish population. With his rise to power in Germany, he would put into action his plan of elimination. This is not only why German Jews were the main target of the Holocaust, but why they were a large part of the years before, during, and after the Holocaust.
, but systematic exterminated groups were the Jews, the handicapped, and the Gypsies. Adolf Hitler was the mastermind behind the Revolutionary Germany, and was a product of greater world violence, hatred, and harm especially for the Jews. The Nazi system used propaganda effectively to muster the German population in a sense of militarism, to support its wars of conquest until the very end. Nazi propaganda was one of the most crucial tools used to continue implementing the mass murder of the victims of the Nazi control. It also served to secure the silent acceptance of millions of others that would continue to racially target with mass murder.
From the early time of civilization to now, even the future, the Jews have to deal with being bullied and hated in the world. The Holocaust: an event that took the lives of 6 million Jewish People is no doubt the biggest genocide and discrimination act in the history of the world. Jews were rounded up, enslaved, and killed in terrible ways. There is no other event in the history of earth that has taken so many lives; purposefully planned in a way meant to do that. Hitler managed to persuade almost his whole country, when he took over the government, that the Jews were the enemy; that they were to blame for Germany being the way it was.
During 1933-1945, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party ruled most of continental Europe. Hitler was commander in war efforts and had interesting goals he wanted to accomplish as ruler. Hitler believed that Jews were to be destroyed, he wanted to get rid of the entire race because according to him, they had no purpose of living. The Holocaust is now famously known for the mass murders of the Jews. About six millions Jews were murder in Europe under Hitler’s orders.
At the end of his life, Hitler would’ve considered himself successful. He had single handedly eliminated six million of what he thought were the worst men and women in existance, and he forced the remaining Jews into hiding throughout the world. He instilled a type of fear, dread, into the hearts of the Jewish people and had successfully showed that the German nation should be feared. He did what he could in order to try and insure transcendence for the coming Germans, and he did his best to protect the German blood. But in the end, Hitler was one of the most blood-thirsty, malevolent people to ever live, and he used his outstanding gifts for the worst kind of evil, discriminatory killing.
Later after that, the president died, so Hitler appointed himself president of Germany, and that’s when he put his plan in action, to get rid of anyone that Hitler thought was inferior and not perfect. Hitler had every Jew in ghettos which were a piece of ... ... middle of paper ... ...nd if someone died they would just ignore them. By the end of it all most of the Jew population was killed (http://endgenocide.org/learn/preventing-future-genocides/). Finally I believe the Holocaust is a genocide because the government used its power to get rid of the Jews, treat them like they were not even human, and had them starve. Hitler used his power to turn everyone against the Jews and exterminate them, this is why Hitler is cindered a dictator.
To explain the cause of the Holocaust we must first look at the situation through the eyes of the Nazi party. They truly believed that the Jewish population was the enemy and that annihilation was the only way to rebuild Germany. Dr. Joseph Gobells, the author of The Gobells Diaries, and a member of the Nazi party explained: The Jews have deserved the catastrophe that has now overtaken them. Their destruction will go hand in hand with the destruction of our enemies. We must hasten this process with cold ruthlessness.
The senseless massacre of millions upon millions of innocent people all started by a man named Adolf Hitler who came to power in 1933. The Nazis brought terrible fatalities and chaos in Europe beginning with a purified race and ending with the Final Solution in a maniacal plot to exterminate Jews. The holocaust is a awful incident that should have never happened in the first place, but I believe that this made me more aware of the fundamental causes and vast implications involved in how a genocide can occur. I also learned how this changed the future I live in today. I believe that the holocaust still plays an important role in current times, history contributes to moral understanding, and it helps us understand people and societies, and makes an impact in our own lives as well.
“They acted as they did because of a widespread, profound, unquestioned, and virulent anti-Semitism that led them to regard the Jews as a demonic enemy whose extermination was not only necessary but also just.”1 The author proposes to show that the phenomenon of German anti-Semitism was already deep-rooted and pervasive in German society before Hitler came to power, and that there was a widely shared view that the Jews ought to be eliminated in some way from German society. When Hitler chose mass extermination as the only final solution, he was easily able to enlist vast numbers of Germans to carry it out.

His doctoral dissertation, which is the basis for his book "Hitler's Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust," was awarded the American Political Science Association's 1994 Gabriel A. Almond Award for the best dissertation in the field of comparative politics.2 Summary - For the extermination of the Jews to occur, four principal things were necessary: 1. The Nazis - that is, the leadership, specifically Hitler - had to decide to undertake the extermination.
Hitler thought of the Jews as inferior and that they posed a threat to the “superior” Aryan race known as Germans. He argued that the Jews prevented Germany from having a “pure” race. Hitler would stop at no cost to annihilate the Jews, burning synagogues, Jewish stores etc, finally ending with genocide. Hitler easily was able to put in his plan of extermination of Jews. Hitler created an atmosphere of terror that was maintained by force (“Perpetrators”).
