Should The Holocaust Let Genocide Happen Again

Decent Essays
Holocaust and genocide equal millions dead. We should have used the Holocaust as a learning moment to not let genocide happen again because of the horror that happened, and all those unnecessary deaths. In order to keep the Holocaust from happening again we need to go back and look at our past mistakes and learn from them to keep it from happening ever again.
Hitler didn’t have a high education level, yet he still got very far with his plans. “With a mixed record as a student, Hitler never advanced beyond a secondary education.”(1) Which means that he learned everything as he went. He shouldn’t have been smart enough to come up with his very strategic moves to get him the power he needed to eventually do what he had always intended to do. If

“As an army political agent, he joined the small German Workers’ Party in Munich (September 1919).”(1) The German Workers’ party was like a small private club that met in secret to talk about different things. Which sounds like they were up to no good. “In 1920 he was put in charge of the party’s propaganda and left the army to devote himself to improving his position within the party, which in that year was renamed the National-sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (Nazi).”(1) That group was the start of something horrid. It was the start of the Nazi regime. Hitler worked his way up the chain of command in the group. “In July 1921 he became their leader with almost unlimited powers.”(1) It only took around two years to become the leader of that group. Which again shows that he can weave his way to the top from being nothing. “With his charismatic personality and dynamic leadership, he attracted a devoted cadre of Nazi leaders, men whose names today live in infamy—Johann Dietrich Eckart (who acted as a mentor for Hitler), Alfred Rosenberg, Rudolf Hess, Hermann…show more content…

He blamed them for all of germany’s problems. “The first mass arrest of Jews also occurred as over 25,000 men were hauled off to concentration camps.”(2) Then the Night of Broken Glass happened and Jewish shops and synagogues were all burned. “The Night of Broken Glass (kristallnacht) occurred on Nov. 9 & 10 after a 17yrd. Herschel Grynszpan shot and killed Ernst Vom Rath, a German embassy official in Paris, in retaliation for the harsh treatment of his Jewish parents had received from the Nazis.”(2) This was not a smart idea because what happened after he did that was horrendous. The Germans retaliated in a big way. “Ninety Jews were killed, 500 synagogues were burned and most of the Jewish shops had their windows smashed.”(2) Innocent people died and their stores had smashed windows, they must have been terrified. “Spurred on by Joseph Goebbels, Nazis used the death of Vom Rath as an excuse to conduct the first state-run program against jews.”(2) If boy wouldn’t have done what he did all the tragedies that happened afterwards probably
