The Nazis had a very strong hatred of the Jews and anyone that denied them. The question is what brought this awful hatred for this peaceful race. This hatred was unlike other discrimination of the Jews before this because this was all based on racial and biological hate. They wouldn’t even hold peaceful discussions with the Jews. To this day we still don’t completely understand what brought the people to believe these awful things. However, over time we did begin to grasp a good general idea of it.
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.
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.
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.
The hatred towards Jews was nothing new in that time. Throughout history Jews have been prosecuted and blamed for many of the world's problems, and Germany was the same. The treaty of Versailles was incredibly harsh on Germany as it extinguished the nations power and reduced its presets on an international scale. The Germany people especially hated the treaty of Versailles and they needed someone to blame, so lo and behold the hatred of Jews began in Germany. The TOV was signed and approved by Jewish politicians so many German peopled blamed Jews for the TOV. During the 1930s, many Jews where doctors, lawyers and bankers which
When Hitler was in charge of Germany, he hated the Jewish. He never really had a reason to hate the Jewish he just did. Hitler wanted all people to be like him. He wanted to create the “perfect race” that he thought was blonde hair, blue eyes. Hitler killed all people, except for blacks.
According to Mail Online, Hitler’s animosity was very strong. “Hitler and the Nazis believed that the Jews were biologically and racially distinct”. They thought that every person that was a Jew was not a real human and they had no right to live. Once Hitler rose into control, he used his power to campaign against all Jewish people. Nazis made all German people stop shopping in Jewish shops because a Jew was thought to be a “sub-human”. (Mail Online) This was all a part of Hitler’s plan for their downfall. The presence of racism was growing so strong to the point that children were being taught anti-Semitic ideas. In 1935, a group of laws called the Nuremberg Laws were passed and all German citizens, that were Jewish, lost all freedom, independence, and even citizenship. The prejudice increased so vastly that a chemist would not sell medicine to a Jew, even if it would save their life.
I have learned that after World War I, Europe experienced severe economic and political problems that intensified anti-Semitism almost everywhere. This added to the old charges that Jews were unpatriotic and greedy and there was the accusation that they were behind the spread of Communism. In Germany, Adolf Hitler, who had become a racial anti-Semite as a youth in his birth country of Austria, made attacks on the Jews from the beginning of his career in the Nazi party in postwar Munich. Such attacks became the mainstay of Nazi propaganda throughout his rise to power, but he did not always use them. Hitler and his followers used these attacks when it played for their position and not when it served against them.
Jews were targeted by hatred by other religious groups because of their religion. Traditional Anti-Semitism, started nearly two thousand years ago. Traditional Anti-Semitism was rooted in religion. Judaism, a monotheistic religion, led to a lifetime of exclusion for many of its followers. In the beginning, when Judaism was first developing, believing in a religion which only had one God was out of the ordinary. The other religions were all polytheistic, which made the Jewish people a target. The people of this time period didn’t like the idea of this new belief.
The Jews were accepted into society as much as any other Religion to most people before Adolf Hitler became the führer of Germany, before that there was nothing that the Jews needed to be rescued from. After Adolf Hitler came to power the Jews became hated by the Germans, “Hitler told vicious lies about jews” page 1, like “Jews are filthy, Jews are greedy, Jews drink blood of Christian children” Rosenberg, page 2, the Jews were treated like they were wild animals. People actually hated the Jews just because they were Jewish, makes absolutely no sense, right?
As Hitler started to expand wherever his armies went they treated the Jews the same way. In 1942 Hitler had control of most areas in Europe, the Jews in these areas were in Nazi power. There were numerous people similar to me who were persecuted by the Nazis.
This was due to the leader of the fascist Germans, Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler portrayed them as evil and the reason for all the poverty and woes of the German people. Not right away did everyone in Germany go with Hitler’s accusations but despite the craziness of the accusations Hitler used his persuasive speaking to slowly brainwash every German into thinking that the Jews were actually the problem. As a result of this millions upon million of Jews were taken by the SS, which was like the secret service off Germany at the time. No matter who you were, actors, politicians, and doctors were taken, stripped from there home and lives. The Germans would ram sack the homes of the Jewish, taking all of the valuable things found such as gold and other precious metals. Those metals could be used later on in the war effort. Each and every Jew was rounded up to be taken on trains or buses to camps to die or work to death. During the war nearly 1.1 million Jews were taken to Auschwitz, which represented the most taken of any group. Other groups that were taken were the Poles (nearly 150,000), Gypsies (Nearly 25,000), Soviets (Nearly 15,000) and 25,000 others (U.S. Holocaust Museum). No matter who it was the Germans would round up and kill if there was means to and if it was seen as the right thing to do by the higher up ranked German leaders. This just proving the evil mindset of those who plotted to cleanse
Many people hated Jews in the 1900’s. People hated Jews for other reasons, there has been a huge religious and economic conflict between Christians and Jews for a long time, but the Nazis hated Jews for a different, unusual reason. The hatred for Jews from the Nazis was unusual because it was racial and biological, not economical. The Nazis also disliked the Jews for teaching false doctrine. They didn't believe in Jesus Christ as their true Savior. Hitler believed that pure Germans were the super race, and were superior to everyone else. The Nazis believed that anyone with a Jewish parent was a Jew. He also believed anyone with at least two Jewish grandparents was a Jew. They also believed anyone married to a Jew, was a Jew. Hitler believe any German-speaking person should live in Germany. The Nazis believed that the Jews brought them misfortune and made them lose World War 1. Some people believe Hitler was a Jew himself, that is dumb. Hitler was a German Christian who led a group against Judaism. The Nazis were trying to make the Jews become an “extinct race” because they were biologically different and “not as good” as the Nazis. The Nazi ideology included Darwinism, which said that the Aryan race was superior and the Jews were subhuman. The Nazi Ideology also stated that Germany was in danger from Communists and Jews, who had to be destroyed. (Nazi
Why are all Germans stereotyped as treating the Jewish race unfairly? Back in 1933, a man named Adolf Hitler was appointed the new Chancellor of Germany. Before Hitler gained power, Germany was in great desperation for help from the damages of WW1. With Hitler now in charge he promised many Germans he’ll stop reparation payment, to give them all jobs and meals, and most important to give them back their pride of being German. From the loss of Germany in WW1, Hitler, and many others blamed the Jews and their conspirators. Therefore people saw Germans as treating all Jews unfair. However no one really knows exactly why Hitler had such hatred towards Jews.
