Jews were a target of the holocaust because Hitler hated them for all the reasons in the world. He also blamed them for the loss of World War 1 in Germany. Hitler had told the Germans that they could win World War 1 if they did not get “stabbed in the back” by the Jews. So the main question is, how Hitler’s hate of the Jews started a superior race. Hitler hated the Jews for all the reasons in the world.

In the 1930's, a vicious hate group targeted Germany's Jewish population. They were called the Nazis. The Nazis are possibly the most notoriously evil hate groups in all of history .Everyone knows who the Nazis are and why they did. What most of society doesn't know is why they were so evil.

Jews also had a bed reputation in Germany for stealing work from Germans. It was frowned upon in society at this time to work for a Jew, and Germans thought if one owned a business, that they were working on the backs of the Germans and that the Jews were corrupt. In conclusion, Hitler had his anti-sematic views and had numerous reasons to detest the Jews.
People like Hitler, Goebbels, and Julius Streicher played on this ignorance of other people to instill fear and loathing of the Jews. In general, people don’t like what they don’t understand. The Nazis exploited this truism by warping, retarding, and creating supposed grievances that the Jews were responsible. During the rallies, the speakers would rant and rave about how they would exact “vengeance against their eternal enemy, the Jew” (1), and how that “Europe will have defeated this threat only when the last Jew has left our part of the planet” (1). Hitler himself at the outbreak of “The German people will not be destroyed in this war, rather the Jew” (1).
During World War II (1939-1945), the Nazis killed several million Jews, Roma (Gypsies), and members of other groups, believing them inferior to an idealised Aryan race. In brief, Hitler had favoured the stereotypical view of a blue eyed, blond haired individual over the people possess brown hair and brown eyes. This resulted in the 25-point programme that Nazis used to control the German society at the time by manipulating their beliefs, especially on racism as well as also taking away much of their freedom. It is therefore presented that there are many contributing factors to account for Nazism’s influence by race and racism.

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. Jews and others lived in fear, many children and failed died due to the idea of the Germans that they were superior people and a superior race to everyone else. Germany was being run by a tyrannic and corruptive government that resulted in the genocide that is today known as the Holocaust.

How Jews were Discriminated Against in Germany from 1933-1939 The discrimination of Jews was prevalent in Germany in the 1930’s. Attacks on the Jews had occurred in Christian countries since the Middle Ages, but intensified between 1933 and 1939 due to the Reign of Hitler’s power. According to Hitler’s racial theories, the Jews deliberately planned to destroy the German people, as they did at the time of war. He influenced the Germans, that it was the Jews and such invalids, who caused the failure and collapse of Germany in World War I. The Germans, being in a vulnerable and desperate state, believed this, and subsequently, the beliefs of anti-Semitism in Germany increased.
Hitler had helped to create national and cultural unity in Germany which included strong feelings of anti-Semitism at its base. Jews were generally seen as inferior and impure genetically so improving one’s nation would include removing them. Finally, due to intense national pride, many Germans may have felt simply that anything their country and their leadership does should not be questioned because there must be a good reason behind it, even if the action their country takes is mass-slaughter and genocide. In the aftermath of WWI, Germany was thoroughly humiliated. The propaganda put out by the German government assured its citizens that Germany was crushing its opposition- the English, French, and Americans.
