Back in the 1933there was a time of strong Jewish persecution called the holocaust due to aGerman politician named Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler was the leader of acommunist group called the Nazi party where he was a totalitarian. Theholocaust started in 1933 when a night called kristallnacht happened. Kristallnachtrefers to the night of broken glass where German people busted the glasswindows and set fires to Jewish store or businesses. The Nazi party had alsosupported this night of broken glass and Nazi soldiers only interfered with theriots if a German store or business.
During this night there up to 91 deathsand the German peoples target was the Jews. Adolf Hitler was historicalmanipulator to the Germans by saying the reason why the economy is so broke inGermany is because of the Jews. That wasn’t the case in their situation but thewhole reason why they had their issues was because they lost WW1. With thetreaty of Versailles it had harsh rules over Germany like how they had to payall of the damage down in the war which resulted in the downfall of thereeconomy. Not only did theNazi party targeted the Jews but they also targeted the crippled the mentallyslow and any non-Nazi German. But the Jews would get the worst of it all thatthe Germans would send them to places called concentration camps. One of themore notorious concentration camps was Auschwitz, which between 1940 through1945 it was estimated to have killed up to 1.
1 million Jews. Auschwitz was sobig that only the zone of interest was 40 square kilometers. When the Jewsfirst get to their destination at the camps they are told women the left andmen on the right. Many families were split up this way and when they got to acertain point they had to get shaved balled and they had to tell there age tothe SS officers and who was ever to young or old to work they were sent to gaschambers to be killed. Those of which that went to work had terrible conditionsto the work and to the sleeping and eating. SS officers had the Jews basicallydig their own graves and the only time that they were fed was at the end of theday. The Jews were only given stale bread and a small bowl of soup.The whole purposeof an SS officer is that they believe to crush the Jews because supposable theJews are against the fatherland.
So the Nazis experiment medical terms likethey lab rats. During the holocaust Jews would hide in crazy places just to getaway from the Nazis. For example when parents would send their children away ontrains or boats just for there kids to be safe while the parents staid behind.In my opinion theNazis and Adolf Hitler was mad people, but to the Germans back in 1940 thoughtthat he was saving the fatherlands.
In reality Hitler was manipulating them inorder for him to stay in power. The Jews that couldn’t escape the Nazis wrathwere either in concentration camps or hiding. Those that helped the Jews hidewere also transported to concentration camps. That only happened if they werecaught hiding Jews of course.During theholocaust there have been some very famous people like Elie Wiesel and AnneFrank. Both these people had helped explain the horrifying truth of theholocaust.
Like Anne Franks diary, even though she died in 1945 due to a typhusfever she still left historical evidence on how it was to be hiding from theNazis. While Elie had more in depth at the concentration camps with his famousbook “Night” where it basically tells his life during the holocaust. Throughall of these writings we have gained a better understanding of what have hadhappened during this great massacre.The Nazis were anationalist socialist German workers party but there were many other Nazigroups like the Hitler Youth.
This group especially targeted the youth in Germanyby propaganda through showing the kids that Germany is great and how the Naziswill save the fatherlands. This is an example of propaganda and hiding the realinfo in order for Hitler to stay in power. Hitler would have down anything tostay in power over Germany.Hitler truly had acorrupted mind in the way of truth and justice and since the holocaust Hitlergave off such an influence on people that resulted in hidden Nazi groups today.
These groups aren’t a threat anyways but they still have the beliefs of Hitler.So that is just a sum of what had happened during this historical event it wasa tragic time for Jews. Many people will never forget the holocaust and eventhough there was other Jewish persecution in history this was a major one inhistory because there were millions of Jews dead.
So in conclusionmany people can have crazy ideas in order to survive and thrive. That’s justhumankind for you always trying to be on top to thrive and survive. People willdo crazy things for any case or situation like slavery even.
