The Nazis And The Jews


The Nazis And The Jews Essay, Research Paper

From 1933 to 1945 the Nazi party of Germany ruled

over the German population. The Nazis (National Socialist Party) were ruled by

Adolf Hitler. The Nazis main aim was to make Germany into a stronger more

powerful country and to do this Hitler believed they must rid the country, and

even the world if he had the chance, of the Jewish population. Hitler saw the Jews,

as the cause of Germany?s fall in the First World War, according to Hitler

Germany had been victim to Jewish conspiracy. He also blamed the Jews for the fact

there were many people in Germany out of work, nearly 6,000,000.? Hitler had a master race, which were called

the Aryan race, which he believed were the only people that should lead the

world. This mater race had blonde hair, blue eyes, were strong and German,

bearing in mind Hitler did not fit into any of these categories. The Jewish

race had already had problems in Europe and many stereotypes had been formed

against them but they hadn?t had any problems for centuries. From 1933 to 1945

the Nazis murdered 6,000,000 Jews and millions of others. This tragedy, called

the Holocaust, represents the world’s most overwhelming example of intolerance.

The poster in source one is taken

from an anti-Jewish film which was called ?The Jew as they have always been

seen. This shows a picture of a stereotypical view of a Jewish person. The Jew

has a big nose, which is saying that Jews are ugly, and loosely has some

relation to crows, which have big hooked beaks and most people dislike them. In

one hand he is holding out money, showing them as moneylenders but in the other

hand he is holding a whip, which symbolises that they would get the money back

even if they had to use violence. In the top right corner there is a small map

of Germany, it has the hammer and sickle on it, which was the symbol for

communism. This is on the poster because the Jewish were associated with communism,

which is another thing the Nazis saw as bad. This poster is not a good

representation of the Jewish race because it was taken from and anti-Jewish

film and is the Nazis wanted the public to believe Jews were like. Source two is a photograph of a German classroom. It

shows the Jewish pupils in the class being humiliated in front of the class by

other German pupils. The writing on the blackboard say?s ?The Jews are our

greatest enemy.? Jewish children were often persecuted in classrooms such as

this one. ?I believe this to be evidence

that we can trust because we have already read and heard about other cases in

German schools. This source shows how the Nazis wanted to manipulate children?s

views of Jewish people from and early age. Source three shows a picture

taken from a German children?s book of how the Nazis wanted children to think

of Jews. On the left hand side of the picture there are three Jewish men looking

ugly with there big, hooked noses, they are just standing around talking which

is showing that the Nazis wanted them to been seen as lazy and worthless. Just

to the right of the old men are three crows, these crows are mirroring the

Jewish men because no one really likes crows and they are seen as dirty and

good for nothing, just how the Nazis wanted to portray the Jews. This is good

primary evidence because it was taken from the time and it is what we already

know the Nazis wanted to portray Jewish people like. Source four is a photograph of part

of the Nazi boycott of all Jewish businesses in April 1933. It shows three

German SA soldiers in front of a Jewish shop with bars in front of it. The solider

in the middle is holding a sign which say?s ?Don?t buy from Jews? This show

that it wasn?t the ordinary public that orchestrated this but the Nazi government

and army. This was just the beginning of the discrimination of the Jews. The

Jewish people could not do anything to stop this happening because they were

the minority. This photo is good evidence because it was taken at the time

everything was happening and because there is also other evidence that this

kind of thing was happening all over Germany. In source five there is a

photograph showing a German SA solider throwing a huge book onto a fire. The

fire is made out of other books, which were seen as ?un-German?. These books

were written by Jewish authors and others were books about Jewish culture. This

was a part of the Nazis cleansing of Germany?s ?un-German? thoughts through

censorship. The Nazi propaganda minister, Goebbels, organised all these types

of things. This evidence is a good piece of primary evidence because it was

taken at the time, May 10th 1933, and it has also been written about. Source six is a part of the Nuremberg

laws, which were enforced in, September 1935. These laws took all freedom away

from the Jewish people. This law was the ?Reich Citizenship Law? which stated: Only a National of Germany or

similar blood, who ?Proves by his behaviour that he is willing and ?Able loyally to serve the German people and Reich ?Is a citizen of the Reich. A Jew may not be a citizen Of the Reich. He has no vote?. He

may not fill any Public officeThe laws also said that it was illegal for Jewish people to

marry people from the Jewish master race. These laws took everything away from

Jewish people, it made them out to be second-class citizens and below every one

else. ??????????? Source seven

talks about the night of ?Kristallnacht? which translated means ?The night of

the broken glass.? During this night on November 9/10 1938, a night of violence

was launched all across Germany. Jewish people were targeted because a Jewish ÉmigrÉ,

called Herschl Grynszpan shot a Nazi diplomat in Paris as a sign of protest.

This was all the Nazis needed against the Jews and was how the night of Kristallnacht

began. Jewish people were beaten and murdered, their shops, houses and

synagogue?s were burnt and destroyed, 90 Jews were killed but many thousands were

put into concentration camps. This source tells us about how badly Jewish

people were treated, they were victimised because of something one person had

done, whereas they had been treated badly for years. In the large map in source

seven it shows all towns, which saw anti-Jewish violence, there are 50 towns on

the map. After this night all the damage the caused to buildings and such Nazis

made the Jews pay for. ??????????? In source

eight the photograph shows people building a brick wall, which sealed off the Warsaw

ghetto from the rest of the city, the photo was taken at the time in 1940. In

this section of the city there lived around 138,000 Jews where there had been

113,000 Polish people, which had been evacuated. In the Polish city of Warsaw

the Jews were hated as they were everywhere in Germany, the Nazi government

were spreading their power and invading neighbouring countries such as Poland

was one way of doing this. The Jews were being gathered into ghettos such as

this so it made it easier to deport them to concentration camps or even death

camps which was all part of the Nazis ?Final solution.? ? ??????????? ????? National

Archives and Records Administration: 238-NT-282?Jewish Civilians Rounded up in the

Warsaw Ghetto, 1943 Source Nine In 1941 the Nazis ?Final solution?

had begun this was the government?s name for there attempt to anihilate the ten

million Jewish people in Europe. From the quote in source nine by Rudolf Hoess

who was a commandant of the Auschwitz extermination camp in Germany we can see

that the soldiers in this camp had a job they had to carry out, they knew

exactly what they had to do and this operation was strict and to be carried out

at all cost?s. From the photograph we can see the horror of this operation and

how real it actually was, the dead bodies line by line, which would have been

put in mass graves or burnt. Before deciding how useful these source are we

need to know when they were both taken and if they are both from reliable

sources like for example, who was the photograph taken by were they British

German or another race. ??????????? In all the

sources you can see the way Jews were treated by the Nazi government who were

principally to blame for the prejudice against the Jews in the Second World War.

All sources show different ways the Jews were persecuted from business boycotts

to mass extermination. From all these sources I have studied I feel that the

prejudice against the Jews in Nazi Germany was learned. All the proof of this

is contained in the sources and in many other books, films and documentaries.

Without Adolf Hitler and his Nazi government I feel that the Jewish holocaust and

even World War 2 could have been avoided completely.
