Destruction (holocaust)

Destruction (Holocaust)

As a teenager of the year 3000 I want to take you back into a certain period of time. A time when people had their dreams and hopes stripped away from their future. The children of this period did not have the chance for freedom and equality. Like every historical event, the Holocaust evokes certain specific images. When the Holocaust is mentioned most people immediately think of concentration camps. People immediately envision emaciated victims in dirty striped uniforms staring in comprehensibly at their liberators or piles of corpses, too numerous to bury individually, being bulldozed into mass graves. Those are accurate images and the horrific scenes are real. Only one thing they are not the entire Holocaust. They are merely the products of the systematization of the genocide committed by Third Reich. The reality of the genocide began not in camps or in the gas chambers, but with four small groups of murderers. Known as the Einsatzgruppen formed by Himmler an Heydrich immediately before the invasion of the Soviet Union. They operated in the territories captured by the German army during the invasion of the Soviet Union and, with the cooperation of German army units and local militias, murdered over a million men, women, and children. It was the story that did not end until 1952 when Otto Ohlendorf, the last surviving commander of an Einsatzgeuppe, climbed the steps of the gallows to pay for the 90,000 murders his command committed.

There have been many genocides in human history, but only one Holocaust. I believe the Holocaust was the destruction of millions of Jews by Nazis. Between 1933 and 1945 about six million Jews and five million of non-Jews were removed from their homes, humiliated, and murdered in cold blood. How could this conceivable have been accomplished? At first, with conventional means, mainly, riffles and machine guns in the hands of special army units or other armed representatives of the Nazi regime. The Holocaust was the effort of Adolf Hilter and the Nazi party in Germany to exterminate the Jews and other people that they considered being inferior. As a result twelve million people about half of them Jews were murdered. The murders were done by every means imaginable, but most of the victims perished as a result of shooting, starvation, disease, and poison gas. Others were tortured to death or died in horrible medical experiments. Adolf Hilter was the leader of the National Social party that dislikes Jews and Arab. Hilter, argue that the destruction of Jews had to come. He blamed the Jews for decaying the Western society, which consisted of Europe. Hilter took power in Germany in 1933 and almost immediately began the chain of events that led to the Holocaust. During this period, while Hilter built his power, Jews were persecuted and brutalized. Still there was no organized effort to systematically murder them.

In 1933, Jewish books and books by non-Jewish opponents of Nazism were destroyed in huge public bon fires. On November 14, 1935, the Nazis issused the following definition of a Jew. A Jew was anyone with three Jewish grandparents, someone with two Jewish grandparents who belonged to the Jewish community on September 15, 1935 or join thereafter and was married to a Jew. The Jews were fired from their civil service jobs and restructing their access to public clubs, sport facilities, and other places. By 1938, most Jews had been deprived of economic means ...
