The Holocaust is debatably the most terrible event and the largest genocide in human history. During World War II when Hitler was leader of Germany Six million Jewish people were murdered by the Nazis, over 1 million were children. Most deaths were in concentration camps where they were gassed, worked to death or died of decease. It wasn’t just Jews that were persecuted and sent to concentration camps, Hitler also sent Millions of other people that he didn 't like. This included Polish people, Catholics, Serbs, and disabled people. As many as 17 million innocent lives were believed to have been lost.
“Those who do not know history are destined to repeat it.” This was said by Edmund Burke. This quote strongly applies to the Holocaust. The Holocaust is a huge part of our history, and we should teach students about it so they are aware of the past mistakes. The Holocaust can help teach us how to make the world a better place, it is an important time in history because it can teach kids about societal issues and kids will learn about the holocaust anyways, so we should teach them about it in a simplistic manner and gradually build up as they get older.
People say that the reason we study history is to learn from our mistakes. The Holocaust was a very big mistake. The genocide that happened in and around Germany killed over eleven million innnocent humans, and was one of the worst of its kind. It is also imfamous for how well it was concealed from the the those outside of Europe. Tens of thousands of people were being killed daily, and the world was oblivious.
Growing up with an abusive father, suffering from the loss of his brother and mother, and living in a homeless shelter after being rejected from his dream art school Hitler and living in homeless shelter Hitler had no control or power of any aspects in his life. When joining the National Socialist Party which later would be known as the Nazi Party Hitler was introduced with the unfamiliar feeling of control and power and took advantage of it the same way his does over Germany. The absolute power Hitler had given himself drove him to corruption which led to the lives of so many people, including his own, to be taken
The Holocaust was a tragic event that after 83 years many people still remember. The Holocaust is the biggest genocide in human history. It is important to learn about the Holocaust because it helps citizens foster a caring and responsible society. It helps us study the behavior of the part-takers so that a genocide of any kind will never happen. It also helps us see how our decisions have an effect on us and others.
A fact which we all have to emit is that humanity existence always creates conflicts and fighting which we call "WAR". In war, people kill each others for many reasons ---- resources, personal benefits, territories, powers, revenge, etc. In war, one becomes a hero for killing human lives and eventually he gets honored and well-known in people 's heart. The Holocaust, according to Germans, was the war between Germans and Jews. Approximately six million Jews included 960,000 innocent children died during Hitler 's regime called Nazism. Unlike the "hero(s)" whom people honor, the Holocaust was a hideous crime and the participants were bloody murderers. Today people are taught about the Holocaust
The atrocities that had occurred during the holocaust are something this world is never going to forget. Innocent lives were taken for an immoral cause. This bloodshed and terror that had rained upon the Jews is something society must never let happen again. During this period of time people were treated as numbers, tools, and most importantly dissociated from society. It was a time where because of race, religion, and beliefs segregation was deemed okay. The pain and suffering that this world continues to burden due to these conditions is something people must take the time to mourn over. Malice can form even in the most good hearted men and is found in every person. It is terrifying to think that this same malice overcame a man named Hitler who had the power to exterminate an entirety of people because of their race. From this immorality the Jews had lost their independence and were subjected to suffering a horrendous state for who they were.
The Holocaust was a time period in which Adolf Hitler was the dictator of Nazi Germany. He prosecuted many Jews because he believed they were the reason World War 1 started, causing the death of 100,000 German soldiers. Because of this, he made sure nearly every Jew was put into concentration camps or killed. Adolf Hitler was a man who wanted everything his way, and because of this he killed innocent people. The Holocaust was an unfair period for the Jews. The Jews were killed because of who they were, and the citizens didn’t try to do anything to help them
The Holocaust is a uniquely terrible dark stain on human history. The perfect storm of racism, a desperate country, and a charismatic leader with ill intentions that led up to the Holocaust are unrepeatable. The world has learned not to let a group of people or political party expressing ill intentions towards another to grow in the magnitude that the Nazis did. The world has recognize the horror of the Holocaust and taken preemptive action. Many countries have instituted laws to prevent similar prejudice fueled actions. The world is a much more connective place than it was back in the 1930’s. The spread of information and visual confirmation would induce action at even the smallest steps towards a second Holocaust. Despite many arguments saying
One essential lesson I learned from reading and discussing the Holocaust in History and English classes is that it is important to remember and learn from the Holocaust. By doing so, we can prevent genocides in the future, strengthen our military, and honor those who were in the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a genocide that occurred from 1939 to 1945 during World War II, and it killed about eleven million people - six million of those people were Jews.
Adolf Hitler was a failure at his young age, where he couldn’t keep up with school, or pursue his dream as a painter. Hitler was really a pauper, he did manage to sell few of his paintings, but the worst part was he slept on the benches and ate from the soup kitchens. He was helpless. So then he decides to forgo painting, and joins the military during World War I, Hitler’s prowess earned him 5 medals, of those five, two were the iron cross medals. He was also blinded by a gas attack at the end of the war, but he recovered. After World War I ended, Germany’s economy had collapsed. Hitler thought the Jews were responsible for the Germany’s defeat. He believed that the nation had been “stabbed in the back” by the Jews (history learning site). After World War I ended, Hitler stepped into the politics. He joined the German’s workers party; he later changed its name to National German Workers’ Party or Also known as the Nazi party. But after the uprising act in Munich, it sent him to prison for nine months. He wrote the book “mein kempf” meaning “my struggle”, which sold about 5 million copies. He attained a lot of fame after writing that book. He used his failed revolution and the book he wrote to seize power legally. At this time Hitler had a huge impact on the Germany, he was such a indefatigable speaker, he gave speech after speech, called in meetings after meetings, and The mind of Adolf Hitler
The Holocaust was one of, if not the worst mass murder in history. The Nazis did one of the most horrifying things you could think of, killing so many innocent people. Many different groups of people other than jews were also victims of this tragic event. Some of those other groups were: LGBTQ individuals, the physically and mentally disabled, slavs, and members of opposing political groups. These groups of people were ripped from their homes and put into concentration camps. The Nazis would either separate them from their family or they would keep them together and they would have to watch the Nazis torture their family and friends. During this very tragic point in history, more than six million Jewish lives were taken, in total there were over 12 million victims of the Holocaust. Not only did this affect the survivors it also affected families of the victims, survivors and anybody else that was connected through this tragedy. The Nazis, came to “power” in January 1933, which was during a time Germany was going through an economic hardship. They believed that Germans were "racially superior" and that the Jews, were "inferior.” Adolf Hitler played a very big factor in everything that went down. Adolf Hitler was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party and was also known as the dictator of the Holocaust. The Nazis did have others that were Hitler’s “army” and they took orders from Hitler to do awful things to the victims and they were commonly known as
Throughout history, the world has seen many horrible acts committed against its people, but of all these acts none are as horrendous as the Holocaust. This event led to the prosecution and execution of millions of people just because those from the Nazi Regime felt they were superior. The Nazis invaded Poland because of this assumed superiority over the Jewish population, and since Nazis thought that the Jews were beneath them they sent them to concentration camps to be worked like animals and to die. The entire world saw this as inhumane, but unlike the Polish and German Jews, the entire world did not experience this great atrocity first hand.
Hitler and his parties rise to power were not as swift and decisive as many people think it to have been. Hitler’s political career started as a spy in a Munich Beer hall. According to “The Rise of Adolf Hitler” , Hitler went to a meeting in a beer hall in Munich thinking he was going to stamp out a communist uprising he actually ended up being persuaded to join the group after and outburst impressed several members( Hitler Joins German Workers Party). Although unimpressed by its disorganized and small workings, Hitler saw the party as something that could become a movement and agreed with there doctrine(Hitler Joins German Workers Party). After making many changes the party and its meetings grew in size. In 1921 Hitler was named the leader of the Nazi party. However this and the 55,000 members of the party were not enough. In 1923 on the cusp of a terrible inflation and mass hatred for the government Hitler planned a putsch to overthrow the new government and mimic Mussolini’s march on Rome(The Beer Hall Putch). It failed miserably and Hitler was imprisoned. In prison is when he wrote Mein Kampf. After serving 9 months of a 5 year sentence Hitler was released from prison with the goal of not making the same mistakes. He publicly stated that the only way the Nazis would seek power would be through the system(A New Begging). This would earn him much support and as future elections would ensue the Nazis soon gained a large seat in
