What would you like to do?
No, he did much more.
Many died in in gas chambers Millions of Jews were killed in many various ways, such as: . Stavation - In the ghettos. . Gas Vans - Used at Chelmno and elsewhere. . Mach…ine gunned - into pits the Jews had dug out. . In extermination camps (such as Trelinka, part ofAuschwitz-Birkenau, Sobibor) - where they were gassed orshot. . In harsh concentration camps - where they were worked todeath. He killed them by putting them into gas chambers , also he wouldwork them to death , by not feeding them and making me them workall hours of the day with no food or sleep . Any horrid way you could imagine. Starvation, beatings, poison,burning.
What number of concentration camps were there that were used to kill Jews when Adolf Hitler was in power?
what was Hitler's purpose for sending Jews to concentration camps and what is a concentration camp.
basically because he could not do anything else with them. He had created a situation where he had concentrated millions of Jews into a corner of Poland and there was not enou…gh food for them. Killing them seemed to be the best solution.
Hitler's plan for the Final solution for the Jewish people began in 1942. He began having SS officers shooting, gassing and starving Jews in death camps.
He didn't think that, his mother died from breast cancer and Hitler was aware of that.
there was little value in only killing some.Hitler killed the Jewsfor more than one reason. The political reason given was that theJews were aligned with the Bolshevik revolut…ion in Russia, and werehence Communists. Communists were feared in Germany for not onlytheir brutality but for what, they feared, was a totalitarian statein which there would be little freedom and the German culture andsociety would be radically changed, and everyone would suffer alower standard of living. Great exhibitions were given to get thatpoint across.
Communists, Socialists, labour leaders, Gypsies, homesexuals.
YES! it is what we hated about him. He killed six million Jews. Healso killed many gypsies, gays, people with disabilities, andpossibly other races. BASICALLY anyone he hated …or wasn't Germanenough. He basically murdered anyone different which is ironicconsidering he was too.
because they where different and because his what Germany for German people and no one else. if you have other information people use WikiAnswers research button which is eas…y to use and no hassle
The question assumes that Hitler was "Jewish" or at least of Jewish origin, but there is absolutely no evidence for this. Answer 1 I would rather post this e…lse where but those answers are fixed. Hitler killed the Jews for the following reasons: He regarded (most) Jews as Communists. He blamed the Jews for causing the defeat of Germany in World War 1. He blamed the Jews for the Great Depression. They claimed that the Jews were a morally and culturally corrupting influence. He believed that the Jews were conspiring to rule the world. He also believed that the Jews already, to a large extent, controlled Germany. He believed that they were racially inferior and were in some sense 'contaminating' non-Jewish Germans. However, this is at odds with the view that they were extremely cunning and were 'already controlling Germany' Answer 2 The above was Hitler's propaganda, we cannot know the extent to which Hitler believed himself. None of these accusation warranted the holocaust since restricting Jews to ghettos and transporting them out of the fatherland already accomplished victory over the Jews. It is well known that Hitler was an Artist. Hitler killed the Jews because he had an a grand vision of Germany, that did not include Jews. Hitler preyed upon prejudices of the Germany and bad economy to popularize the elimination of Jews, so that his vision could be realized. Read more at the Related Link below. There is no evidence at all that Hitler was partly of Jewish origin. The rumor was current in the period c. 1920-50 as propaganda intended to make him look a hypocrite. The supposition underlying this question, namely that Hitler was part Jewish, is incorrect. Hitler was Austrian and while there is some speculation that his grandmother may have been Jewish, the evidence contradicts this. Hitler wanted to kill the Jews because he was inspired by racist pseudo-scientific thought as are many who have a similar perspective today. Answer 3 The events affecting the Jews of Europe during the Nazi era were a culmination of centuries of mistrust, and abuse; Jews were often accused of being the source of societies' problems; they were the universal scapegoat. The antisemitic writings of Martin Luther from the mid 1500s in Germany, were often quoted or paraphrased by Hitler in speeches. Adolf Hitler's "hatred" of the Jews was one of the tools he used to convince the people of Germany that he knew the source of their economic problems and that he was the person who could correct the situation. He chose to use the long standing antisemitism in Germany to gain the people's support. The Jews were a target of opportunity; antisemitism was a useful tool to reach his goals.
His rationales for killing them as a multitude are no different asa group than as individuals. Those rationales are set out in theRelated Questions below.
Answer There is no evidence that Hitler was in any sense Jewish. The only basis for this legend is a highly suspect supposition about Hitler's father, which even if …true still wouldn't have made Hitler a "Jew" by either German or Jewish standards. That removes the underlying premise of the question, but if you're still interested in "why" you can skip the discussion below and go straight to the end. Longer Discussion After the war, Hitler's lawyer Hans Frank claimed to have been told by Hitler that certain people were trying to blackmail him about his "supposed Jewish ancestry." Frank further claimed to have investigated this in an attempt to disprove it, but there were some irregularities in Hitler's ancestry that made this difficult. The key factor has to do with Hitler's father Alois Hitler. Alois was born to an unmarried woman named Maria Schicklgruber (spellings of that last name vary). Maria later married, and Alois was adopted by, Johann Georg Hiedler. When the name change was processed, Alois became Alois Hitler (spelling, especially of names, appears to have been rather ad libitum in 19th century Austria). The question then becomes: who was Alois' father? Johann Georg Hiedler is the most likely candidate. An alternative theory supposes that it may have been Johann Georg's brother Johann Nepomuk Hüttler (see last parenthetical comment about spelling, and don't get me started on "Let's name all our sons Johann!"). This theory claims that Hüttler (who was married) had an affair with Maria and then later foisted her off on his brother Hiedler. Proponents cite the fact that some time before Maria's death (when Alois was about 10) Hüttler took Alois in and raised him for several years, and also granted him a substantial inheritance in his will. Against this must be weighed the fact that, if true, it means that Hiedler was willing to marry someone just to cover up his brother's indiscretions, which is perhaps a bit harder to swallow than an uncle simply being kind to his nephew. However, for our purposes it doesn't actually matter much which of the Johanns was Adolf's grandfather, since neither of them were Jewish. The Jewish part comes in due to Frank introducing a third possibility. Frank claimed to have found evidence that Maria worked in the home of a Jewish family in the town of Graz named Frankenburger. He speculated that the 19-year-old son Leopold Frankenburger may have been the person to get Maria pregnant. However, the only basis for this theory is Frank's speculation, which has going against it that the Jews had been expelled from the province in which Graz was located several centuries before this, and were not allowed to return until several decades after Alois' birth. There were also no records of any family named Frankenburger or anything similar living in Graz at the time, and Frank managed to get several other key facts (such as Maria's birthplace) wrong as well. The modern conclusion is that Frank, who remained a fanatical anti-Semite even after renouncing Nazism, was attempting to portray Hitler as a "Jew" (actually, under German law, a "second degree Mischling") and not a pure-blooded "Aryan" so that he could claim "It wasn't a 'real German' (well, Austrian, but still ethnically Germanic) that did all those horrible things, he was actually one of them!" Also, the German laws defining Jews and Mischlings allowed either the Führer or Reichskanzler to exempt any given person from those classifications. Hitler held both of these positions, so in the extremely unlikely event that Frank's supposition was correct, he could have simply declared himself to be a pure-blooded Aryan. In short, the preponderance of the evidence is that Hitler was basically a pure German-Austrian. You must know that in Southern Germany and Austria more than half of the population have brown or black hair (such as Hitler himself). Only in Northern Germany is the portion of blond-haired population more than 70%. So, the fact that Hitler was not blond and blue-eyed does not mean that he was a Jew. Why Hitler basicly targeted the Jews because they were the largest non-German ethnic minority in Central Europe at that time. Hitler wanted a pure Germany without any "parasites". At that time, there were very few Muslims and Africans living in Germany (unlike today). But you can be sure that Hitler would have built exactly the same gas chambers when (instead of Jews) millions of Turks, Arabs, Indians and Africans had lived in Germany at that time. Substantiating evidence is the Nazi treatment of the Roma ("gypsies") and condemnation of "Negermusik" (jazz and swing, and you can probably guess what it literally means). Hitler's basic ideology was not anti-Semitism specifically, but racism in its most radical extent. The millions of Indian and Arab "fans" of Hitler should always be aware that they would also be on Hitler's "bug spray list" if they had lived in Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. Tom Lehrer's song "National Brotherhood Week" contains the lyrics "Oh, the Catholics hate the Protestants, And the Protestants hate the Catholics, And the Hindus hate the Muslims, And everybody hates the Jews." This isn't anti-Semitism on Lehrer's part; as American readers might have suspected from the name, Lehrer was of Jewish heritage himself. It is, however, more or less Truth in Television for most of the world in the period leading up to World War II. Jews were, at best, tolerated in most places in Europe (the word "ghetto" originally comes from the name for the part of Venice where Jews were permitted to live), so Hitler was partially piggybacking on an existing dislike of the Jews, and they provided a convenient scapegoat (ironically, a term with Jewish origins) to blame Germany's problems on.
Answer 1 There are three problems with that question: He did not kill all of the Jews because he did not try to kill all of the Jews. The only Jews that were… targeted were those under German control. Even though Jews were killed from other Axis countries, most of them were sent voluntarily, or even paid the Germans to take them. Next you have to disassemble whether the murder of the Jews was at the behest of Hitler, or whether it was done under the impression that it was what Hitler would have wanted, or whether it was done out of some kind of necessity. Whereas it is clear what happened, making assumptions about why it happened is a mistake. The question makes two incorrect assumptions, as such the best answer is: He didn't. Answer 2 It was because he felt that they where inferior. He also killled mentally challenged ppl. Answer 3 The only person qualified to answer that question fully and accurately, without speculation, killed himelf on April 30, 1945. Answer 4 The question assumes that Hitler and the Nazis killed the entire Jewish people; this is not correct. The Nazis killed roughly 30-40% of the world's Jewish community and roughly 60-70% of the European Jewish community. European Jewry was around 9 million in 1933, of whom Hitler killed just over 6 million during the Holocaust. The reason that he did not kill all of the Jews was because he didn't conquer the entire world and because he lost the war. As for why he strove to kill the Jews, that question implicitly has two parts. The first is a question as to the rationales that Hitler believed in to justify Anti-Semitic beliefs and the second is a question as to why Hitler felt the need to kill the Jews as a way to solve these Anti-Semitic concerns. The Reasons for Anti-Semitism in Germany during that period are numerous, but some of the more important reasons were the following: 1) Decay of the German State: During the 1800s, Jews began to become more integrated in German National Life. They served in its government, its military divisions, and its industry. As was typical of Western Europe, the Jews had more of a hand in the higher echelons of government than their population percentage would account for. The Nazis saw this increasing Jewish percentage in the government as a slow takeover of German policy and a corruption of the German people. They contrasted the great victories under Bismarck with the depressing failure of World War I and noted how a much larger percentage of soldiers in the latter war were Jewish. There was also the sentiment than in the early 20th century, values were beginning to ebb (this is similar to current politics in the United States) and the Jewish integration in the German apparatus (becoming teachers, lawyers, doctors, etc.) was to blame for this recession of values as opposed to modernity as a process. 2) Nationalism: Germany was brought together under the Nationalist conception that all peoples with German culture, history, and language should be united regardless of which principality currently held control. The German self-conception also had an ethnic component, holding that the perfect German was blond and blue eyed. Regardless of the fact that the majority of Germans were dark haired, Jews stuck out like a sore thumb because they overwhelmingly had darker hair. In addition, the idea of a German Jew was still rather new and both Jews and non-Jews tended to see the Jews in Germany as being part of a vast Jewish network and that these Jews just happened to be in Germany. The Nazis capitalized on this cosmopolitan sensibility by claiming that Jews' allegiances were not to the German State, but to secret Jewish Councils organizing world events. 3) Economy: Whether it was true or not, there was perception among Germans and the Nazis in particular that Jews were wealthy individuals and had a higher per-capita income than the Germans. In many ways (because of the above two reasons) Germans felt that the Jews were "stealing" their money while they were poor and suffering. 4) Pseudo-Science: The late 19th and early 20th century was filled with radical new ideas concerning Social Darwinism. It was believed by the Pseudo-Scientific community (which was rather in vogue) that different groups of people or races exhibited different emotional traits that were linked to physical differences. This led to the belief that Jews were corrupt and thieving by their irreversible nature and that they could not be "cured" and brought up as proper Europeans. This formalized Racial Anti-Semitism in Germany and made the situation much more dire for German Jews. 5) Heresy: Although not as much an issue in World War II as it may have been 500 years prior, Jews were still considered the heretics who murdered the LORD and Savior. This helped to justify Anti-Semitism as the Jewish comeuppance for their accepting of the Christ Bloodguilt. Why was killing the Jews necessary? The answer to the second part, while cold, is brutally honest. The Nazis encouraged the German population to believe that this myriad of Anti-Semitic issues was ingrained in German Society by making it part of the national curriculum and teaching it to millions of German children. The Nazis proposed that the only way to improve Germany was to remove the Jews entirely. There were two options for such a removal: exile or genocide. Since no country was willing to take the Jewish population en masse (and this includes the United States and United Kingdom due to prevailing stereotypes there) the Nazis made the executive decision to commit genocide to "save Germany".
Yes. Many people. Any people who displeased him. Then at the consentration camps there weren't only Jews, and at consentration camps they gassed people.
Answer 1 Nothing. The ethnic resentment of many Germans toward the Jewsenabled Hitler to make them a "straw man" enemy that he coulddenounce. His vision of an Aryan master ra…ce excluded what hecharacterized as inferior races, including Jews and Romani(gypsies). Adolf Hitler and many people around the world at the time had an unfounded belief that the Jews were an evil groupthat controlled the financial wealth of the world. This led to theprejudice called Antisemitism. The real point is that the Jews atthe time were an identifiable race as they wore clothing andbehaved in a way that identified them as a religious group. Theimage and unreasoning racism that went with it is still aroundtoday, just not as common. Hitler hated the Jews and used this and the racism that was rampantat the time for his own ends. What he accomplished was a focusingof energy and hatred into a single goal, the persecution of theJews, to solidify his position as chancellor and ultimate dictatorof Nazi Germany. This power led to the Holocaust and to World WarII. Answer 2 Problem of Non-Culpability Nothing forced Hitler to hate the Jews; he chose to do so. Hitlerwas very aware and cognizant of everything he said and everythinghe did. He was an incredible orator, able to motivate tens ofthousands of people with his passionate beliefs about the greatnessof the German people. He was well aware of how effective he was ingalvanizing support for his atrocities and planned elaboratesystems for maintaining the bureaucracy that drove it. He alsospent a lot of time and effort in developing the ideology thatwould drive this hatred. Hitler was not a machine, but a man and avery passionate one who freely chose to commit one of the greatestatrocities in history. Additionally, the phrasing of this question would offend numerouspeople because it assumes that the Jews were guilty of committingsome sort of offense and were therefore rightfully castigated.While it is not true to say that Jews were innocent lambs, the Jewsdid not do half of the negative nonsense that is attributed to themin order to "justify" Anti-Semitism and violence against them. Jewshave been punished for being different, unique, and misunderstoodand never did anything worth punishing them for in the same waythat Africans never did anything to merit enslavement. Theseactions were taken on account of bigotry and self-supremacy, notbased on any system of equitable justice. Not Just Killing Jews received every type of maltreatment possible over the courseof time. They have been enslaved*, tortured*, evicted*, overtaxed,denied the right to movement*, had their religion suppressed*, hadtheir families ripped from them*, were attacked in their ownhomes*, were summarily executed*, were executed by genocide*,denied the right to self-protection*, restricted in their choice ofoccupation, denied voting or land acquisition rights*, forced tostand trials and kangaroo courts specifically because of theirfaith, and they have been forcibly converted. That list is notexhaustive, but should hit the main points. While Nazis did not do all of these, they did the majority of them.The ones that the Nazis did have received asterisks in the previousparagraph. Issues Asserted by Nazis The Nazis' primary issues with Jews were the unfounded anderroneous assertions of which the following is a general list: 1) Decay of the German State: During the 1800s,Jews and other minorities began to become more integrated in GermanNational Life. They served in its government, its militarydivisions, and its industry. As was typical of Western Europe, theJews had more of a hand in the higher echelons of government thantheir population percentage would account for.

There was also thesentiment than in the early 20th century, values were beginning toebb (this is similar to current politics in the United States) andthe Jewish integration in the German apparatus (becoming teachers,lawyers, doctors, etc.) was to blame for this recession of valuesas opposed to modernity as a process. 2) Nationalism: Germany was brought together underthe Nationalist conception that all peoples with German culture,history, and language should be united regardless of whichprincipality currently held control. The German self-conceptionalso had an ethnic component, holding that the perfect German wasblond and blue eyed.

In addition,the idea of a German Jew was still rather new and both Jews andnon-Jews tended to see the Jews in Germany as being part of a vastJewish network and that these Jews just happened to be in Germany.The same perception existed for Gypsies, Jehovah's Witnesses, andCommunists. Hitler capitalized on this cosmopolitan sensibility byclaiming that these people's allegiances were not to the GermanState, but to secret councils made up of these minorities thatconspired against the German people. 3) Economy: Whether it was true or not, there wasperception among Germans and Hitler in particular that Jews werewealthy individuals and had a higher per-capita income than theGermans. In many ways (because of the above two reasons) Germansfelt that the Jews were "stealing" their money while they were poorand suffering. 4) Pseudo-Science: The late 19th and early 20thcentury was filled with radical new ideas concerning SocialDarwinism, a movement that Hitler was a part of.
