Europe, spain, russia, poland.
Basically they were not. Jews were used as a scapegoat by Hitler when he was running for political office. After he was elected he no longer needed a scapegoat.
The nazis used jews and poles and homosexuals and disabled people as scapegoats because they considered these group of people unfit to be on the face of earth and viewed them as weakening the gene pool of the Germans.
Europe, spain, russia, poland.
because many people said the jews poisoned the well that others drank from because they were not getting as sick as frequently as others
he blamed all of germanys prblems on them. and hte people listened since the jews already had a bad reputation
They mean that Hitler blamed the Jews for Germany's problems, especially for the country's defeat in World War 1 and for the Great Depression.
The Jews were not simple scapegoats. In Mein Kampf Hitler states that "as long as there is a single Jew alive in the world, Germany cannot succeed at anything she attempts". Therefore by that reasoning all Jews had to be exterminated because they were preventing German success, simply because of the fact they were Jews. It was to be total 100% genocide. Hitler and the Nazis used Jews as scapegoats in order to become elected… Read More
Scapegoats of the Empire was created in 1907.
Hitler was 1/5 Jewish. He was related to the Rothschilds- he was the illegitimate son of one of them. The Rothschilds were instrumental in financing Hitler's campaign, so he couldn't touch them. instead, he made the other Jews his scapegoats.
The Jews were used as scapegoats and blamed for Germany's problems, allowing the Nazis to capture and kill them without the majority of the German population objecting to it.
Communists, Liberals, Socialists, Gays, Free Masons, Czechs, Catholics, Blacks. Any one who was thought to not be Aryan.
Towards the end of the Middle Ages, they were falsely accused of being the cause of black plague. Also, the Catholic church banned buying with interest, which the Jews did. In other words, Jews were scapegoats and the Church made laws that made them look terrible.
Many Jews had well paid jobs and valued education. Hitler believed they were taking all of Germany's jobs. They were a minority group of under 1% so were easy to target.
Hitler based his actions on his beliefs so he used the Polish Jews and all other Jews as scapegoats. He aroused people's interest's of killing Jews by using propaganda to show how "horrible" the Jews were. So basically he planned on slaughtering the entire population of Jewish people and have it be justified by his propaganda.
Hitler used the Jews and other sections of society as scapegoats, blaming all the problems on them. To Germans at the time Hitler made sense, he united everyone by providing explanations for Germany's problems.
Anti-Semetism has existed for centuries, but in many countries they were accepted or at least tolerated. Nazi Germany used the Jews as scapegoats and blamed all of their postwar economic problems on them. The Nuremberg Laws of 1935 stripped Jews of German Citizenship and basic rights. It led to their isolation and extermination.
because they were easy targets, they had been used numerous times before, there was an already built-in antisemitism that was easy to encourage and they had no government to speak up for them.
Because the Nazis rated themselves the master race and the Jews sub-human. The problem being that the Jews were usually far superior to the 'master race' in every walk of life except killing. And, Hitler needed scapegoats.
Although many Jews themselves died in the plague, they were accused of poisoning the wells and spreading disease. These were baseless charges, of course, but they resulted in the massacre and slaughter of thousands of innocent Jews throughout Christian Europe. Also, people thought that less Jews were killed off, but this wasn't true. Many Jews who died weren't recorded, just hastily dumped into pits. i guess Jews are just popular scapegoats for history. Hitler blamed… Read More
if your talking about ww2 then ask Hitler. the Jews have always been scapegoats for the worlds problems. he obviously had some beef with the Jews that only he could understand. Me being only 13 and having to deal with people treating to kill you is sorta sad. Yes. And Hitler built on some 1500 years of hatred and anti-semitism propagated by the Christian church.
By the time of the Holocaust Hitler no longer needed a scapegoat. It was during the political campains that Hitler used scapegoats. Yes they were the only ones as what he said about the socialists was arguably true.
The government of the Third Reich was based upon several anti-semetic (anti-Jewish) policies. The reason for this was because the Jews were being used as scapegoats for Germany's problems. Hitler used them as a unifying force to get all of Germany to rally behind him because he promised a better future.

Because Hitler told the German people what they wanted to hear, he told them that he could bring change into Germany (which he did) and that the Jews were the reason that Germany was in bad shape. In other words the German people wanted somebody to blame for all their problems, and Hitler gave it to them.
The Jewish people were blamed for the death of Jesus and refusing to accept Him as Divine. The Jews were convenient scapegoats for hundreds of years; when ever anything bad happened, the Jews were blamed for the incident. The Jews were an obvious minority in most of the countries they lived in. The Great Depression took place in the 1930's and Germany needed a scapegoat for their problems. Also for their loss in World War… Read More
The Jewish people were the scapegoat for Hitler
I don't think he was awfully keen on them to be honest... Answer: Adolf Hitler and the Nazis saw the Jews as greedy people, he thought they would destroy the economy with their "stinginess" and their "greed". These ideas were, and indeed still are being spread by imbecile racists and fascist regimes that traditionally look for scapegoats to blame for their own incapacities. When the Nazi regime came into power in Germany, there were as… Read More
Segregation, expulsion and murder. Jews were traditionally used as scapegoats: They were blamed for livestock being ill, for disease or economic downturns. Most countries at some point herded them into Jewish quarters/ghettos or expelled them. The exception being Poland who welcomed Jews expelled from other countries.

There is too much speculations as to why Hitler hated the Jews. Everything from using them as scapegoats for the German economy to pure jealousy of some of people's success. A lot of documents written by Hitler himself were propaganda and can't really be trusted for legitimate facts. Hitler's reasons for disliking the Jews is left to personal determination based on documents. ___ It's probably best to depersonalize the question and focus on the wider… Read More
Adolf Hitler wanted to unite the German people in the persecution of scapegoats and minorities, thus avoiding close scrutiny and criticism of his policies. But more than this, it became a personal obsession on the part of Hitler himself.
The Jewish were not scapegoats to Germany and were not killed anymore.
Hitler decided to exterminate/murder/destroy the Jews because of his hatred. He falsely and steadfastly believed that Jews were responsible for almost all of Germany & Europe' problems. He decided that they (the Jews) would become the scapegoats & sacrificied to make much of the German population happier about its economic, political & cultural situation. He found that many Germans would support a few of his measures, and that a few would support all his measures… Read More
I suppose if anyone were to blame for it, it might be the ship owners of the ships that brought the plague infested rats from port to port. However, at the time, many people blamed the Jews because they tended to be the scapegoats for most everything.
they had previously been used at scapegoats to problems before world war one. so they were an easy choice. and they were all spread out so they could not really stand up and fight for them selves
After the economic difficulties of post WW1, the NSDAP or Nazi Party began to use the Jews (and other minority groups) as scapegoats. Anti-semitism was already widespread in the world and one excuse for this was that Jews could be "usurers". Goebbles was in charge of NSDAP propaganda from around 1923 and he worked with Hitler to create a very negative image of Jews. When Hitler came to power in 1933, he began implementing his… Read More
The themes are outdated traditions and scapegoats.
yes you have to.
What were the political and economic conditions in Germany that allowed Hitler to take the freedom of Jews?
Jews, socialists, gays and other minorities were used as scapegoats to further German nationalism and anger at what they perceived as excessive punishment for World War I, including the huge financial burden of rebuilding and reparations, and rampant inflation. The genocide was an attempt to purify the German race. ==Comment:== He couldn't have taken the freedom of the Jews if the Gentiles weren't willing to give up some of their basic rights too.
