Hitler believed that the German people were part of an 'Aryan race,' a superior group that should be kept pure to fulfill their mission of ruling the world. He felt that the Jewish people were 'sub-human,' when in actuality they were virtually the same as his 'Aryan race.' Not only did Hitler have a personal hatred toward the Jewish people, but he also blamed them for 'stabbing Germany in the back' after Germany's defeat in World War I. Hitler used them as scapegoats because they were a minority and were easy to put the blame on. 'Historians agree that the Holocaust resulted from a confluence of various factors in a complex historical situation. That anti-Semitism festered throughout the centuries in European culture is centrally important; the Jews were (and are) a minority civilization in a majority environment. In periods of crisis, instead of searching for the solution of
Almost everyone knows of Hitler’s hatred toward Jews (anti semitism), but do you ever wonder why? Adolf Hitler was born April 20th, 1889. He was a German politician who became the champion of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and a ruthless leader of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. He first rose to power in 1930, and within three short years instituted laws to exclude Jews from civil society in the effort to “protect German blood and German honor”. First, Jewish businesses were boycotted and un-German or Jewish authored books were burned. Non-Aryans (including Jews) were excluded from any legal profession or civil service. Jewish citizens were harassed and subjected to violent assaults and their businesses boycotted. It was Hitler’s mission, as the leader of the Nazis, to completely remove the
Hitler grew up in a very anti-Semitic belief system. Anti-Semitism is the term used when people are prejudiced against Jews simply for being Jewish. Prejudice means that someone pre-judges or makes up their mind about someone or something before even meeting them. He was told stories of the evil that these people had done, he pondered on this fact, and then he acted on the feelings that he had developed through his youth.
Finally, many purely hated Jews because they were not Aryan. Germany was one of these countries. Hitler, the leader of Germany, has carried hate for the Jews since early childhood. Primarily, he blamed them for his mother’s death along with him not getting into his dream school, Vienna Art College. Also, they were blamed by Germany for defeat in WWI and as the cause for unemployment. However, mainly Jews were persecuted because of the way they looked. At the time, Hitler wanted a racially pure Germany. He believed that by adapting the Darwin theory of survival of the fittest, he would be able to create a stronger generation and kill those that are impure or disabled.
Hitler had an insane hatred for the Jews. He felt that the whining Jewish population was what prevented the country of Germany to rising to its former glory. Before coming into power, Hitler wrote a book explaining his hatred and why others should hate as well. The book was not very popular at the time but would later be held as the nazi “bible”.
At the end of WWI in 1918, Germany’s economy was in ruins. There were very few jobs, and bitterness began to take over the country. According to the text, “Hitler, a rising politician, offered Germany a scapegoat: Jewish people. Hitler said that Jewish people were to blame for Germany’s problems. He believed that Jews did not deserve to live.” (7) This was the birth of Antisemitism--prejudice against Jewish people. Europe’s Jewish people have always been persecuted due to their “different customs and beliefs that many viewed with suspicion.”(7) Hitler simply reignited the flames, and a violent hatred was born.
To start, when Hitler came into power, everyone loved him and he was like any average ruler until things started to change. Hitler led Germany into battle in World War II and mostly everyone was convinced that it was only a matter of time before they won the battle, but when this was not the case Hitler was outraged. From the article in historylearningsite.co.uk it illustrates what Hitler felt, ““stabbed in the back” by the Jews” (Trueman). This was most likely the result of feeling like he needed someone to put the blame on, someone to be displeased at. The Jews didn’t purposely make Germany surrender or have any part of having Germany lose the war, after all it was their country too. After this event, things started to go down hill for the Jews and what most people refer to as mankind's worst mistake. Secondly, Hitler started to use his power to exterminate or control the population of all Jews, thus abusing it and doing things that should not be done with his power. Since he thought Jews took everything away from him and Germany he started dehumanizing them and treated them as if worse than animals. The novel Night states that they were deprived of all of their jewels and precious belongings, having to wear a yellow star so everyone knew they were Jewish, living in the ghettos,
In the article, it states “Hitler built on and used anti-semitic ideas that already existed. He was Austrian and grew up in Vienna where the mayor was extremely anti-semitic and where hatred of Jews was widespread” where he was from hatred of the Jews wasn’t uncommon, but why did he specifically hate Jews. There are many theories also to why he despises the Jews ranging from having a childhood friendship that ended with a Jew all the way to his mother was a Jew and that he was ashamed of her, but really I don’t think it was any of those. In an article, it states that “by giving the Jews the blame Hitler created an enemy” he used this as a tactic to win the election because he needed some kind of scapegoat to put the blame on. This got him a lot of support because it is easy for people to join into the herd mentality and just blame someone else for their own mistakes. Also, Hitler and the Nazis believed that Jewish race was “inferior” and did not even considered them people, so he needed a way to get them out of the picture to build his perfect Aryan race. I think Hitler just hated the Jews when he was born, so he just started a hate train towards them which also caused him to get elected into office, so for Hitler it was just a win-win and he really had no specific reason as to hating to the
The view Adolf Hitler had on the Jewish peoples was that everything was their faults and he hated them. Before Hitler became a Dictator he was a soldier just like everyone else in World War 1 and when the German Empire lost he was in disbelief and just couldn’t believe it. Many nationalist and conservatives believed that Germany had not lost the war on the battlefield but due to betrayal from within, by a ‘stab in the back’. Socialists, communists and particularly Jews were blamed, even though more than 100,000 German and Austrian Jews had served in the war and 12,000 had been killed.
Adolf Hitler shared the same hatred towards the Jewish race as many Germans, he believed that they were the reason to Germany’s defeat in the First World War; there was nothing unique about his hatred, but the way he conveyed his message was extremely unique.
Hitler hatred towards the Jews truly began when he came to Vienna. While in Vienna, Hitler read various publications that molded his ideals in regards to the Jews and later policy making when he becomes chancellor. I would like to point out that the author should of took the time to include specific examples of the materials that Hitler read; although, it is fine since we discuss and learned about it in class. Hitler’s first recorded comment against the Jews occurred while in the military. A soldier asked why did Germany lose the war and a commander requested Hitler to reply to the question (Hilberg 5). Hitler blamed the Jews for Germany’s defeat .

After war Hitler was imprisoned and in prison he wrote an extremely vile book expressing his hatred views towards the Jewish religion. Once he got out of jail he became colleagues with the head of an anti-semitic newspaper. This colleague inspired him to continue his fight to control the fight against Jews. He began thinking of things he could do to make the Jewish people pay. He grew his ideas from things that had happened in the past such as, “once (saying) the idea for concentration camps came from his studies of the Boer War in South Africa, (Raper
