No, Hitler was never ashamed of that, he killed himself because he realised that Germany was losing the war and instead of surrendering he committed suicide.
After the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, mobile killing units following in the wake of the German Army began shooting massive numbers of Jews and Roma (Gypsies) in open fields and ravines on the outskirts of conquered cities and towns. Eventually the Nazis created a more secluded and organized method of killing enormous numbers of civilians -- six extermination centers were established in occupied Poland where large-scale murder by gas and body disposal by cremation were systematically conducted. Victims were deported to these centers from Western Europe and from the ghettos in Eastern Europe which the Nazis had established. In addition, millions died in the ghettos and concentration camps as a result of forced labor, starvation, exposure, brutality, disease and execution.
In the beginning the Jews were primarily shot. Execution squads would drive large groups of Jews to remote locations (usually in forests) and shoot them there. Sometimes mass grave were prepared beforehand, sometimes the victims had to dig them.
However, it became quickly apparent that this method had several flaws. First, it was "inefficient"; the amount of manpower and equipment (bullets, trucks, gas) needed was so much, that the goal of the extermination of all Jews in Europe would not have been attainable. Also, the direct involvement of soldiers with the mass executions caused psychological problems.
The next step was gas trucks, which had gas chambers big enough to hold about 100 persons mounted in the back. But again, while more efficient this too did not achieve the numbers desired by Nazi leaders.
That was when plans were drawn up for centralized Extermination Camps, in which the Jews were herded into large chambers (800-1200 in Auschwitz) under the pretense of being disinfected or deloused - the Nazis even went so far as to hand out soap and towels to elicit cooperation to the last moment - just to be then poisoned using HCn, Hydrogen Cyanide (released from "Zykon-B") , in a process lasting up to 20 min. Afterward, depending on location and/or time frame, the bodies where either dumped in mass graves or cremated.
Many victims died of diseases they got from the poor hygiene and nutrition. The Holocaust Museum website, as well as the Anne Frank memorial website, offer much more information. Some of it is disturbing, however.
The Holocaust was the attempted genocide of European Jews. It is not a term like 'genocide' which is the mass murder of a specific set of people (which can be used for various events); it is a specific word for an event 1941-1945.

Well he was trying to attack the guards with his claws as they were taking Peter away and then the guard like picked him up and threw him out the window but mouschi was to skilled for him and he climbed back up the wall and pounced on his head (he was secretly a ninja) but then he saw a salmon truck drive by and he chased it...then he got ran over by a bike and the boy took him home and ate him with green beans...): he was 112 when he was eaten
the cat ran away after everyone was lost nobody knows for sure Miep Giles states that the cat ran away when the annex was stormed BUT returned when all was quiet. She said that she and Elli kept it on the premises and saw to its well being. I received this in email form from Miep Gies.
It would really depend on their ethnicity/religion. A Jewish or Slavic farmer would most likely have his land seized, whereas a German farmer probably wouldn't be treated differently than other Germans.
Yes, according to the book Night. written by Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, on page 4.

Many lost faith in God. Some blamed God. The remainder realized that evil people will always be around and always find a way to harm others.
Hitler persecuted the Jews because he hated them. He blamed them for problems in his society. Throughout the 19th and 20th Century, several different societies and countries persecuted the Jews. The Jews and the Masons were blamed for gaining control of the country through their influence in business and banking. This was a way for people to put blame for bad government onto a group of people.
There was a period that Jews were persecuted in Russia and other countries. Hitler turned this distrust into a racists hatred.
The earliest firm evidence of Hitler's antisemitism dates from 1916, when Hitler was aged 27, so stories about early experiences in his life should be treated with caution.
Hitler believed that the Jews were involved in a great conspiracy to control the wealth of Europe and to dominate and destroy the German or Aryan people. Whether that belief was the basis for his hatred or was a result of it is not something I think can be determined.
The reasons most commonly given are that Hitler believed that the Jews:
The first of these views - of the Jews as Communists - was also widespread in many other countries, including Britain and the U.S. However, most people elsewhere seem to have taken this with a pinch of salt and certainly didn't get so worked up about it.
As for the conspiracy theory that the Jews were trying to dominate the world, Yehuda Bauer summarizes it neatly as follows:
"The basic motivation [of the Holocaust] was purely ideological, rooted in an illusionary world of Nazi imagination, where an international Jewish conspiracy to control the world was opposed to a parallel Aryan quest. No genocide to date had been based so completely on myths, on hallucinations, on abstract, nonpragmatic ideology - which was then executed by very rational, pragmatic means."
Yehuda Bauer, Rethinking the Holocaust, New Haven, Conn.: Yale University Press, 2002, p.48. (Quoted in Wikipedia article on the Holocaust, accessed 31 March 2009).
Obviously, there is something nutty about such notions, but there is no evidence that Hitler was clinically insane.
In the interwar period (1918-1939) it was perfectly acceptable to express racist, ethnic, religious and cultural prejudice loud and clear, both in Europe and the U.S. Most German Jews did not take the Nazis' antisemitism particularly seriously before 1933. Almost none had made any practical arrangements in advance to leave the country, for example. Hitler's Jew-baiting was not particularly popular outside the beer-halls of Bavaria and a few other places and was not the vote-catcher that the above answer claims.
Please see the related questions.
Hitler like most Europeans did not like the Jews as a result of religious and cultural differences that had been ingrained for centuries. The Jews themselves did not endear themselves either by being racially insular. In any case many leaders who can get a better toe hold by vilifying a particular group will do so as it gives the average man in the street something to hate. He did the same with Gypsies various religious groups and the disabled. And it worked as a result of the fear he managed to spread he attained absolute control of Germany. There was also a lot of wealth confiscated which Hitler had use for. There is no clear answer to this question. If you examine Hitler's policies you will discover that he did not have much, if any, original thoughts. He simply chose thinking that had been done previously and put them all together in his Nazi philosophy.
Both Poland and Russia were persecuting the Jews before Hitler was born. Anti Jewish feeling existed in nearly every nation, including America. The degree of discrimination varied, but the dislike was not uncommon.
Some influences that MAY have influenced Hitler were ...
1. The Great War (WW I) for Germany started falling apart when the German sailors refused to make a suicide voyage against the British. This mutiny involved both Jews and Communists.
2. Hitler was anti-Communist, a type of government invented by a Jew - Karl Marx.
3. The German government that surrendered to the Allies (the Weimar Republic) had Jews in its leadership at times.
4. When a child falls off a bike it is not uncommon to see them kicking the bike, as if it was the bike's fault they had an accident. Likewise it was convient for the Germans to kick the Jews and blame them for Germany's defeat and surrender.
5. The Christian religions blamed the death of Christ on the Jews. One can see in the Bible the statement that the Jews demanded the death of Jesus, and said, "let it be upon our heads and that of our children." This became an excuse to abuse the Jews for more than a thousand years. It was not until the 1960's (I think) that the Catholic Church stated that the Jews were NOT to blame for the death of Jesus. (Their statement was based on the idea that Christ died for the sins of ALL PEOPLE, therefore ALL those that sin are equally a cause of the death of Christ!
6. Hitler not only objected to the Jews, but also to Christanity as well. While the belt buckles of the Wehrmacht had the words: "God is with us" written on them. Hitler's god was not the same as we think of. He was going back, in his thinking to the time of the Vikings, and the pre-Christian Germans. To the ancient gods of the Germanic people. He tolerated the Christians only because he was not powerful enough to oppose them. But if one investigates the thinking of the SS troops they will find no Christian thinking, but only those of the ancient times.

The Nazis ghettos resulted in malnutrition, which weakened the inhabitants and made them victims of disease and often in death. As the ghettos were policed by the Jewish Council (Judenrat) conflict arose within the ghettos.

Hitler lied to the Jews by saying he'll make things better for them.but he didn't lie by saying he'll change the world
Anne Frank ended up in Bergen-Belsen camp in Germany after being evacuated from Auschwitz in Oct. 1944. Starvation, cold and disease helped her health to fail and Anne's sister Margot died of typhus and a few days after, Anne herself died. A few weeks later, the camp was liberated by the British. She was 15 years old.
A holocaust survivor Irma Sonnenberg Menkel said that as she walked past two pits with the bodies of Jews thrown in she saw Anne Frank and her sister Margot. There were many mass graves such as this.
She was found by the two twins that served like Red Cross helpers at the camp. They decided to put Anne and Margot into sheets, and put them into the mass grave. The body was never found, she died sometime in March of 1945. The exact date is not known.
Some pros of fungus are:
- it is a recycler
- fungus gives plants water (mycorrhizae)
-used in food
-used in medicine
Some cons are:
- spoils food
- can cause animal disease
- can cause infections (athletes foot)
- can be deadly (Dutch Elm disease and ergot)
Jews had dealt with anti-Semitism before without seeing it escalate into genocide
They did this by keeping a strong community.
Depending on which camp the Jewish families or individuals were sent to, the following could happen:
mostly they were treated like slaves... or they were simply killed.
