A major problem in understanding World War II is dealing with its ironies. Germans mastered most of the military lessons of World War I, but lost; Anglo-Americans and Russians learned little or nothing from the earlier conflict, but won. Germans hailed Adolf Hitler as the greatest German in history; but had Otto von Bismarck rather than Hitler ruled the Third Reich, there would probably not have been a Holocaust and a German Century might have begun after the French collapse, in 1940. Instead, National Socialism’s “Thousand-Year Reich” ended twelve years, four months, and eight days after it began, the worst genocide in history occurred between 1941 and 1945, Hitler committed suicide in his bunker, and terrified Germans hid in ruins on V-E Day. The research paper consists of several thess well try to prove the real Jews harm and true facts during the Holocaust. Compare the different sources such as 1919-1945: a documentary reader by Pridham and Noakes Nazism, Hitlers willing executioners by Daniel Jonah Goldhagen and Hitlers army: soldiers, Nazis, and war in the Third Reich by Omer Bartov. The thesis of my work consists next topics.
First of all we discuss rights of Jews in Germany and other countries such as Russia and USSA, Poland and Europe. In fact, Hitler had written a letter to a Herr Gemlich in 1919 in which he called for the removal of the Jews if he ever took power. – Said the first part of our research but Political anti-Semitism was not confined to Germany. An analogous phenomenon developed in France and The regime of Czar Nicholas II responded to the revolutionary movement of 1905 by unleashing a wave of terror, of which Jews were a principal target. The second part of research compares the books of several different authors. Noakes and Pridham analyze National Socialism between 1919 and 1945 in a particularly useful way they judiciously chose documents to buttress concise commentaries and, like conscientious attorneys, prove what they advocate, they see the history of the Third Reich as a whole, an increasingly infrequent phenomenon as writers deal with previously unexplored details.
Prior to the era of Second World War in 1930s, community of Jews had already established their society within the German realm. For last 1600 years of German-Jewish relations, German Jews were first to experience the dramatic persecutions inflicted by the German society. b. Overview German-Jews, despite of their German blood, did not experience any benefits or considerations during the Second ...
The last part of the topic devoted to the fatal consequences of Holocaust and the explanation why such took place. Hitler said before the outbreak of the war that if there were another war, he would annihilate the Jews. He said during the war that he was in the process of annihilating the Jews. And he said in his Testament that he had done exactly what he had said he would do. Modern research has begun to deal more extensively with the suffering of other victims of the Nazi genocide. For example, homosexuals, Gypsies, prisoners of war, Russians, Poles, Catholic priests, Jehovah’s Witnesses and others were more or less systematically murdered as the Holocaust continued. By the end of the war, as many as 6 million of these people had been killed, along with between 5 and 6 million Jews. Does the focus on the Jewishness of the Holocaust take away from or minimize the suffering of the millions of non-Jews who were persecuted? Do the Jews, unintentionally perhaps, try to keep all the suffering for themselves? No.
On the other hand, does the Holocaust have a particularly crucial and central Jewish element, even though millions of others died? Simply put, the answer is yes. The Holocaust, from its conception to its implementation had a distinctly Jewish aspect to it and, arguably without this Jewish aspect, there would have been no Holocaust. Most of the non-Jewish people would not have been killed because the killing machinery would not have been put into operation. Faithful to Hitler, the Nazis picked out and specifically targeted the Jews, and they did this from the very beginning — the Nazi Party Program of February 1920 to the very end Hitler’s Testament of April 29, 1945. In fact, Hitler had written a letter to a Herr Gemlich in 1919 in which he called for the removal of the Jews if he ever took power. Exactly when Hitler’s eliminationist hatred of the Jews took form in his mind is still a matter of debate.
The history of the Second World War offers no small share of tragic stories, but perhaps no event, or more accurately: series of events, during the course of the war, provokes such continued outrage and bewilderment as the Holocaust: the systemic murder of millions of Jews which was undertaken by the beureuacratic civilian and military elements Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. Founded on a long ...
Some accounts have him violently anti-Semitic when he still lived in Linz. Others equate it to his experiences in Vienna, or to his gassing experience at the end of World War I, still others believe the anti-Semitism took on its virulent form in the early 1920s under the influence of Houston Stewart Chamberlain and Dietrich Eckart. Political anti-Semitism was not confined to Germany. An analogous phenomenon developed in France. Its proponents saw Anti-Semitism as the most effective means of mobilizing mass support against not only the emerging socialist proletariat, but all elements of liberal democracy as well. The bloody pogroms that occurred in Russia were a direct response by the czarist regime to the growing revolutionary movement of the working class.
The government sponsored the formation of right-wing paramilitary squads, known as the Black Hundreds, to terrorize the working class. As with the Fascist movements of inter-war Europe,” writes the historian Orlando Figes, “most of their support came from those embittered lumen elements who had lost–or were afraid of losing–their petty status in the social hierarchy as a result of modernization and reform: uprooted peasants forced into the towns as casual laborers; small shopkeepers and artisans squeezed by competition from big business; low-ranking officials and policemen … and pub patriots of all kinds disturbed by the sight of ‘upstart’ workers, students and Jews challenging the God-given power of the tsar.” The regime of Czar Nicholas II responded to the revolutionary movement of 1905 by unleashing a wave of terror, of which Jews were a principal target. In the two weeks that followed the issuing of the czar’s Manifesto of October 1905, which pledged to support the establishment of democratic institutions, 690 pogroms occurred. Three thousand Jews were murdered during this period. A pogrom in Odessa cost the lives of 800 Jews. Five hundred were wounded and more than 100,000 were made homeless.
It was soon established that the pogroms had been organized with the direct assistance of the government. The political mechanics of the pogroms were described in a socialist newspaper of the time: The petty bourgeoisie was traumatized and ruined by the events, which followed the defeat of Germany in the war. The Weimar Republic, founded on the basis of a strangled revolution, staggered from crisis to crisis. “The postwar chaos,” wrote Trotsky, “hit the artisans, the peddlers, and the civil employees no less cruelly than the workers…. In the atmosphere brought to white heat by war, defeat, reparations, inflation, occupation of the Ruhr, crisis, need, and despair, the petty bourgeoisie rose up against all the old parties that had bamboozled it. The sharp grievances of small proprietors never out of bankruptcy, of their university sons without posts and clients, of their daughters without dowries and suitors, demanded order and an iron hand.”11 The desperation, anxieties and traumas of this milieu, forever fearful of being driven down into the ranks of the proletariat, were articulated by Hitler.
As I’m sure most people know Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Germans from August 2 1934 to April 30 1945, but do you know that as Fuhrer of Germany he was the driving force behind the start of WWII. During his reign he tried to bring Germany back to the powerful country it had been before the First World War. In this paper I will prove that Hitler’s actions lead to start of WWII, and I plan to ...
Himself a product of the lower middle class, he spent his formative years in Vienna, where the cheap right-wing gutter press shaped his worldview and where he acquired his life-long hatred of the working class and socialism. Hitler’s anti-Semitism was, according to the perceptive antifascist German writer Konrad Heiden, a by-product of his all-consuming hatred of the proletariat. Hitler, Heiden explained, “hated the whole great sphere of human existence which is devoted to the regular transference of energy into product; and he hated the men who had let themselves be caught and crushed in the process of production. All his life the workers were for him a picture of horror, a dismal gruesome mass … everything which he later said from the speaker’s platform to flatter the manual worker was pure lies.” Herein lies the key to an understanding of Hitler’s demonic obsession with the Jews. In Mein Kampf, Hitler explained how his conversion to anti-Semitism flowed from his encounters with the labor movement. It was among the workers that Hitler first came into contact with Jews.
He then discovered, to his amazement, that many Jews played prominent roles in the labor movement. “The great light dawned upon him,” wrote Heiden. “Suddenly the ‘Jewish question’ became clear…. The labor movement did not repel him because it was led by Jews; the Jews repelled him because they led the labor movement.” 2. Noakes and Pridham analyze National Socialism between 1919 and 1945 in a particularly useful way. First, they judiciously chose documents to buttress concise commentaries and, like conscientious attorneys, prove what they advocate.
Nazi racial policy was a key component of Nazi ideology. Hitler placed great emphasis upon the need for a superior Aryan race, an idea that had originated from the earl 19 th century Volkisch movement. An Aryan was essentially a pure German, born and bred in German culture, values and social thinking. The fundamental duty of government in Hitler's mind "was to preserve the racial purity of the ...
And second, they see the history of the Third Reich as a whole, an increasingly infrequent phenomenon as writers deal (sometimes at great length) with previously unexplored details. Thus the editors view the Holocaust not as a separate Nazi total war against Jews during total wars against Anglo-Americans and Russians but as a continuation of the Jew-hatred that was integral to Hitler’s Weltanschauung from his first anti-Semitic writing in September 1919 to his “Political Testament,” written in the bunker on April 1945. From beginning to end, Hitler was convinced that the war was about Jews, a belief not shared by Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Joseph Stalin, or any other wartime leader. The editors had to curtail numbers of documents and discussions of some topics or the series would have been of infinite length. Whether or not these omissions are critical will depend on an individual’s interests; for example, a reader searching for a detailed analysis of the New Order in theory and practice will not find it here.
What they will find is a highly useful introduction ….
