Hitler had shown unwillingness to tolerate the Jews and once he was appointed Chancellor, he started to take elimination measures like deportation, forced emigration, and isolation to enforce his belief. He took advantage of Germany’s weakness in World War One, then used it as an opportunity to blame the Jews for Germany’s defeat. Hitler’s political party was the largest political party in Germany thus allowing them to draw very large crowds to gatherings. He had very good oratory speeches with hand gestures that easily manipulated people to adhere to his views. Hitler constantly targeted the Jews because he knew people believed in these speeches. People in Germany were already anti-semitic but Hitler made it worse by constantly consuming them in his speeches. From the way he spoke about the Jews, we could clearly see the possibility of genocide. Hitler wanted Germany to be free of any humans that anyone other than his ideal master race so he personally selected bodyguards to be part of a group called the SS. Hitler was responsible for ordering the SS to carry out the extermination of anyone who did not fit this ideal. The SS handled oppositions using force and as a result of which people were forced to give into the idea of violence. Sometimes people purposely went along with this Holocaust ideal due to the fear of getting killed. These terrors allowed the holocaust occur
There are several various causes of the Holocaust event, the most common being the adamant hatred of Jewish people in the immediate community. Anti-Semitic views had already been widespread in Europe, even before Hitler’s time. It was believed that the Jews were responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Hitler had tried his hand at becoming a professional artist in Austria, but was struggling heavily. When he would see the Jewish people around living and doing better in life, his hatred grew--presumably out of jealousy. Germany’s defeat in World War I only made it worse. He, and other German soldiers, had blamed Jewish people even further for their loss. In the war only about one hundred-thousand Jews went to war, and only twelve-thousand were lost.
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,

The Holocaust was the murder and persecution of approximately 6 million Jews and many others by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. The Nazis came to power in Germany in January of 1933. The Nazis thought that the “inferior” Jews were a threat to the “racially superior” German racial community. The death camps were operated from 1941 to 1945, and many people lost their lives or were forced to work in concentration camps during these years. The story leading up to the Holocaust, how the terrible event affected people’s lives, and how it came to and end are all topics that make this historic event worth learning about.
The holocaust, or Shoah was a systematic, planned program of genocide to exterminate all Jews. This government based program was carried out by Hitler, and its allies in the Nazi army during world war two. Approximately 6 million Jews were killed, and if the murder of the Romani, Soviet civilians and prisoners, the disabled, homosexuals, and others who apposed to Hitler’s religious, political and social views were counted, this number would be more like 11 to 17 million. The holocaust is generally described with two periods, 1933-1939, and 1939-1945, the end of WWII.
Hitler had a strong disliking of the Jewish people. Furthermore, he felt that they were not at the standard of the German people. To rid the world of the Jewish people, Hitler made many work camps for the Jews. These camps had extraneous conditions. According to Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany, a book written by Earle Rice Jr., “Conditions were so poor that tens of thousands died there- some from the cold, malnutrition, starvation, or disease, while others were victims of medical experiments or mass exterminations.” Clearly, Hitler had shown no regard for the wellbeing of the Jewish people. To have conditions so poor, people died of issues such as malnutrition and starvation is an ode to the kind of man Hitler was. His desire to perform experiments on them shows that Hitler not only looked at the Jews as less than the Germans but people in general. Never again will there be a political leader to have such an impact on the
The Holocaust When the Nazis came to power in 1933, the Jews were their very first target. The infamous boycott against Jewish businesses took place in April 1933 and the first laws against the Jews were enacted as early as on April

Hitler had resentment for jewish people for the problems that faced Germany. The economic depression had hit Germany extremely hard, families were broken apart and millions of people were losing their jobs, many people lost confidence in the democratic system and placed their reliance within political parties. When Germany lost in World War 1 in 1914 fifteen years earlier Germany was starting to lose faith in their government (Weimar Republic). With these circumstances it had given the perfect provision for Adolf Hitler And his nazi party to become leader. Hitler had a strong voice that people listened to and admired, with hitler's motivational speaking he attracted a large audience of Germans desperate to their knees for change. Hitler
Hitler had control of the press, therefore he started spreading lies about how the Jewish people had caused all of Germany’s problems. Hitler kept on telling the German people this lie and the German people started to actually believe that the Jewish people were their enemies. Since the German people believed this enormous lie, they found it alright that Hitler was trying to completely get rid of the Jewish race. As Hitler started to take over countries, his cruel side came out. When Hitler raided a city, he would put the people in concentration camps. In these concentration camps, people were held as prisoners in very harsh conditions. Hitler also proved how dishonest he was when he broke a non-aggression pact with the Soviet
Firstly, when Adolf Hitler came into power in Germany on May 8th 1945, one of his main goals was to purify the German race. He believed that all races were inferior to the German race. As a result, the Jewish people of Europe suffered severe persecution which eventually led to them being murdered. Hitler spread propaganda all throughout Germany, which cause the German people to hate the Jews. He made them believe that the Jewish people were the cause of all the problems in Germany. As a result, Hitler instilled fear in the German
The Nazis would use propaganda to harass the Jewish or other ethnic minorities which were categorized as lower classed races. They would blame them for the economic and financial troubles, the loss of the Great War, and for the communist threat against Nazi Germany. The propaganda worked so well that most Germans at that time held it for a correct idea to have a pure Germany, unconsciously allowing the Nazi party to slaughter ~6 million Jews and other ethnic groups which didn’t fit the characteristics of a “perfect German”.
