Hitler was in many cases what led to the Holocaust. In conclusion, these were the main reasons for the Holocaust taking place. However I think that definitely the foremost important reason for the Holocaust ever happening was centuries of Europe being anti - Semitic. Despite the fact Adolf Hitler is very responsible for in which the ways he convinced so many Germans into hating these 'impure' innocent people, he was not entirely at fault for the holocaust happening. He was influenced very much by other anti - Semitic leaders, there could have possibly been another leader and public speaker who could have for filled the role that he did for the Holocaust.
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. The Holocaust, in my opinion, was genocide because of the number of people who died, because of the people who did survive, and because of how people lost all their belongings. “The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation's history.” (Dan Quayle) Although most people believe that this genocide was a terrible thing, some others believe it was the right thing to do. These small percentages of people have been proven wrong over and over again throughout time. The Jews and many others were being persecuted in Germany by the Nazis.
Regarded as a major fault in the world’s history, the Holocaust claimed the lives of over eleven million people, including six million Jews. Initiated by Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany, the Holocaust progressively denounced the Jews’ rights and severely restricted the Jewish peoples’ lives with many anti-Semitic decrees. Moreover, other groups of people, such as Gypsies, Slavic people, disabled people, homosexuals, Communists, and Socialists, were also mistreated in Nazi Germany, as they were considered “racially inferior”. At first, only the Jews’ rights were limited, and the Jews did not have the same rights and privileges as German citizens. However, over time, the treatment of Jews worsened and concentration camps were created throughout Germany and Europe in order to house Jews and any people that challenged Nazi supremacy.

Due to the paranoia and blame throwing of German leaders, the Jews were linked to many events that hurt the national pride of the Germans. German national pride also led to a view of Jews as inferior, inhuman beings compared to the German “Master Aryan race,” and the national and cultural unity against the Jews that Hitler assisted in creating also strengthened German pride. National pride also blinded Germans to the atrocities committed by the Nazi Party against minorities, mainly the Jews, and even made the Germans feel these acts were necessary to Germany’s survival.

(Resnick 9) The Holocaust was very different from all other genocides in history. This was not a result of government issues, a power struggle between two groups, a holy crusade, or an attempt to defeat an enemy to win. Instead, the Jews were murdered simply because they were Jews. The Nazi group believed that the Jews were inferior to most other peoples and sought to literally wipe them from the face of the Earth. Many people saw this as wrong and unjust, but there was still other people like, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi leaders who still looked at the Jews as somehow less human.
It is quite obvious that Hitler and the Nazi Party had a different point of view and beliefs than any of the other groups. Hitler saw events in history as a racial struggle. He had blamed the German defeat of World War I on the Jews also other economic hardships. As well as that, they thought that the Aryan (Germans) were superior to the Mongrel (Jews) and non-Jewish people. According to Holocaust Museum Houston, the “Nazis considered the Jews a race whose goal was world domination and, th... ... middle of paper ... ...e Jews wanted world domination, and did not share all of the same religious and cultural beliefs.
The holocaust was a catastrophic event that killed millions of innocent people and showed the world how inhuman mankind can be. This dark period in world history demonstrated unmatched violence and cruelty towards the Jewish race that led toward genocide. Genocide did not begin with the Holocaust; nor was it a spontaneous event. Many warning signs within world events helped provide Germany and Adolf Hitler the foundation to carry out increasing levels of human depravity (Mission Statement). These warning signs during the Holocaust include; Anti-Semitism, Hitler Youth, Racial profiling, the Ghettos, Lodz, Crystal Night, Pogroms, and Deportation.

He did this to ‘divide and rule’. Thus, the 25-point programme had occurred due to Nazism and it’s influence of racism in the country. In conclusion, it is quite clear that NAZISM was largely influenced by racism. It is explored that Hitler’s influence of Social Darwinism and personal resentment impacted on a great portion of the population as his belief in the theory had led to the outcome of Anti-Semitism such as discrimination of those without the favourable characteristics mainly involving the Jews.
Since 1945, The Holocaust has been remembered as one of the worst atrocities known to man in 20th century. During the time of the holocaust many groups of people in German society were persecuted and found themselves a target of discrimination which is now seen as immoral but during this time period was seen as the ‘norm’. The main focus of this essay will be discovering the full background of the Holocaust and how it affected the USA in ways such as economical, social and finally political. Finally during this essay I am hoping to make sure that the full extent of the holocaust is written about so that knowledge of this event is spread and is not forgotten. There is a dispute among historians about when the Holocaust actually started; some consider the date that Hitler came into full power which January 30th 1993 as the holocaust evolved slowly from the Nazi parties’ ideas.
The mention of the name Adolf Hitler automatically recalls one of the most hate filled and destructive periods in the history of humanity. More people died in World War 2 than in any war ever fought, but it wasn't merely soldiers; innocent civilians were persecuted for nothing more than their views of the government or for their religion. The specific focus here will be to deal with Hitler's hatred of the Jews, and how it progressed in the years before the war. The other point to bring up from this time was the Nazi's use of propaganda to rally their people and deceive the foreign community from strongly intervening in their plans. To (attempt to) understand the actions taken by Hitler, one must first try and understand his unrelenting hatred of the Jews.
