Around 4000 according to the 2015 Yearbook of Jehovah's Witnesses.
Yes, as long as it doesn't put him in check.
They are not conveniently stored together, all in one place, but are scattered over several archives.
if you mean in the film The Boy In The Stripped Pajamas, then i think the answer is yes. the timing in the film works out about right. and it may just be ironic, but they also look sort of similar. i haven't found it proven anywhere, but it makes sense.
Hitler was racist towards Jews and other minorities. He focused the resentment of the German people toward those of different cultures, in order to achieve power. Some of the more important reasons that he hated them were the following:
1) Decay of the German State: During the 1800s, Jews and other minorities 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. Hitler 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 and Gypsies stuck out like sore thumbs 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 same perception existed for Gypsies, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Communists. Hitler capitalized on this cosmopolitan sensibility by claiming that these people's allegiances were not to the German State, but to secret councils made up of these minorities that conspired against the German people.
3) Economy: Whether it was true or not, there was perception among Germans and Hitler 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, a movement that Hitler was a part of. 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 and Gypsies were corrupt and thieving by their irreversible nature and that they could not be "cured" and brought up as proper Europeans. This formalized Racism in Germany and made the situation much more dire for German minorities.
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.
because they didn't believe in his culture
Hitler targeted the Jews because he blamed them for losing Germany world war 1 because during that time Hitler was just a foot solider but clearly he loved Germany and hated the Jews
Jews were a convenient target because they had already been persecuted in Europe for a thousand years, and there was a well established tradition of hating Jews. When Hitler announced that all of German's problems had been caused by Jews, there were lots of people who found that lie very easy to believe.
He blamed everything on the Jews. He thought that they were unpure. He had thought that the perfect race had blue eyes and blonde hair. No one was pure.
Adolf Hitler was serving in a strict military when he was young, and to them surrender was the worst embarrassment. Anyway, in the end the German army Hitler was serving for asked a high end Jewish society for funds to help them keep fighting, since they were flat broke, but the Jewish society refused, because they thought Hitlers army had no chance to win.
Therefore, with no funds, the German army was forced to surrender, the worse embarrassment.
When the war ended, Hitler was furious with the Jews for not giving them money, and forcing the army to surrender.
With this fury against the mainly innocent religion and people, Hitler set out for revenge, and the rest is History.
Because, Adolf Hitler had a lot of hatred against the Jews.
After World War 1 there were all kinds of conspiracy theories circulating about the Jews. They were widely regarded as Communists and subversives. In Germany and Austria there was a widespread view (for which there was no evidence) that they had engineered the defeat of Germany. This was also a conspiracy theory but was taken seriously by hardline nationalists. because they didn't believe in his culture
The time of the holocaust was also the time of WWII, of which responsibility for the major loss of life can be shared between Hitler, Stalin, Hiro Hito, and Mussolini. But perhaps you are thinking of Holocaust victims and not soldiers. In this category you have to include a number of people: Chinese, Ethiopians, Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, and the mentally retarded (as they were referred to at that time). Countries that were involved in such persecution include: Japan, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, (Occupied) Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, France, Poland, Yugoslavia, Albania, Greece. Denmark and Norway effectively resisted the policies to a large degree.
No, Hitler's mother had breast cancer, the doctor was a Jew but there was nothing the doctor could do to save cancer. This is one of the reasons Hitler hated Jews. But again in many cases with these modern technologies still cancer can not be solved.
none, but Spielberg's film had a massive impact.
From April 1933 onwards, German Jews were turned into second class citizens. They applied to people of Jewish origin as well as Jews in the religious sense. One of the first measures was a boycott of Jewish-owned businesses. Then there followed a hailstorm of anti-Jewish decrees (429 in all in Germany from 1933-1943). Here are some of the main decrees:
The aim of these measures (up to the start of World War 2) was to make life so intolerable that the Jewish population left Germany.
The treatment of Jews with Czech or Polish citizenship in Germanywas even worse. In 1943 there was a final decree denying Jews access to the courts, stating that they had no rights and were to be dealt with as the police saw fit.
All these measures - certainly up to September 1939 - were publicly announced and reported in the media, both in Germany and abroad.
6 camps existed
Jews, gypsies (Romanies) - these were the only groups singled out for extermination. Many other groups, however, were treated very badly, in particular:
In addition, some of Germany's allies, especially Croatiaand Romania, committed genocide. Croatia tried to exterminate Serbs as well as Jews.
Individuals who sheltered Jews, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, communists, anti-Nazis and people with physical or mental disabilites were persecuted. Some PoWs also found their way into concentration camps.
It could also be argued that almost all the citizens of nations conquered by the Nazis were persecuted to varying degrees, whether by direct mistreatment such as beatings, restrictions in movement, evictions from homes, long working hours and by effectively having their food supplies stolen. In some areas there were massacres of civilians in retaliation for Resistance/partisan activities, such as Czechoslovakia, France and in the Balkans.
The Nazis believed that only Germans could be citizens and that non-Germans did not have any right to the rights of citizenship.
The Nazis racial philosophy taught that some races were untermensch (sub-human). Many scientists at this time believed that people with disabilities or social problems were genetic degenerates whose genes needed to be eliminated from the human bloodline.
The Nazis, therefore:
Simple answer: They systematically harassed the Jews, made it impossible for them to earn a living, sent them to ghettos, seized their possessions, enslaved them and killed them.
Every single Jewish Holocaust story is different, and it differs from every country. Here's a small list of what Nazis did to Jews:
Nearly all of them got rickets or berry berry or other vitamin and mineral deficiency diseases. They would also lose their teeth, hair, get brittle bones, lose their body mass and died from the starvation and dehydration.
Their combined momentum will be equal to the first boxcar's
original momentum before the collision.
In a major holocaust, mass butchering takes place, irrespective of caste, creed or religion. All sorts of human rights are violated. Specially the basic and most fundamental 'Right to Live' is grossly denied. This is the most tragic part of any holocaust.
'irrespective of caste, creed or religion'? No, certain groups are targeted. It isn't random spree-killing.
he is the crazy doctor who examined Jews upon entrance to the camps to see if they should be killed in the gas chambers or sent to the concentration camp.
Between about 1942 and the early 1945 the total number of personnel running the concentration and extermination camps was 55,000 at any given time. Of these, about 3,000 (?) were women. Many of those operating the extermination camps were not actually Germans, but Ukrainians, Lithuanians and others.
In addition, there were the mobile killing units (Einsatagruppen) and, contrary toa widespread myth, the regular German army on the Eastern Front and in Serbia was significantly involved in mass murder.
The population of Greater Germany in 1941 was over 71 million. Even if one allows for some changes in staff and the numbers in the mobile killing units the percentage of Germans directlyinvolved in the killings was extremely small.
How many people were involved in the Holocaust? Where does personal responsibility for the Holocaust begin? Does operating a locomotive hauling Jews, homosexuals, and assorted other undesirables make you a party to the crime of mass murder? Were pastors and priests who issued the baptismal certificates (for parents and grandparents) to provide evidence that people were not of Jewish origin (those Ariernachweise) in some sense responsible, too?
Germany attempted to exterminate them, killing about six million European Jews alive in the areas under Nazi control.____Hitler tried to wipe out all the Jews in Europe in the "Final Solution", which involved the slaughter of the Jews. And the Nazis burned their body to ashes.
In areas under German control the Jews were massacred, mainly in mass open air shootings, and gassed in extermination camps. Others were worked to death in concentration camps.
Before the large-scale killings began in 1941, most Jews were forced to live in intolerable conditions in ghettos (for example, in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus).
Many Jews died in concentration camps by diseases or starvation. They were also placed in gas chambers. Children who were not able to work were the first ones to die.
the jews were treat like slaves. the jews were kill during the ww2
6 million Jews were purposely killed by the Nazi Germans by order of Adolf Hitler to comply with "The Final Solution." This mass killing of the Jews and the murder of 5 million other individuals came to be known as "The Holocaust."
Jews were rounded up by the Nazi Germans and their collaborators. They sent the Jews to places called Ghettos, Concentration Camps and Labor Camps. The systematic killing was cruel, brutal and inhumane. The genocide was conducted all over Europe. At the end of the war a mere several hundred thousand managed to survive the Holocaust. See the link below.
Hitler believed in conspiracy theories that regarded the Jews as Communists and claimed that they had deliberately made Germany lose World War 1 by causing strikes, subversion and revolution on the home front. He also said that they had deliberately caused the Great Depression. Worst of all, some of these conspiracy theories claimed that the Jews were seeking world domination and were therefore in competition with Germany's bid to dominate the world.
The Jews were a traditional target for conspiracy theories and were not well placed to fight back. There were an easy target. Antisemitic attitudes had been rampant in Europe for centuries before WWII, and Germany was no exception.
Hitler was an extreme nationalist, meaning he thought his nation - Austria/Germany - was the best on the planet and by implication that all other nations were inferior. The opposite of being a Nazi/nationalist is to be a Communist.
Many, perhaps for a brief spell a fifth or so, of the original top Soviet Communist leadership was ethnically Jewish. (That soon changed under Stalin). All kinds of conspiracy theories flourished. (These conspiracy theories never mentioned the fact that in Russia the government itself was rabidly anti-Jewish from 1881-1917, so it was not at all surprising that quite a number of Jews joined the Bolsheviks). Hitler and many other Nazis felt a deep hatred for Jews. In fact, the major war effort in WWII by Germany was against Russia in an attempt to destroy Communism and the Jews, whom he believed supported and led them. He also believed that the Jews were the biological root of Communism.
Many, including Hitler, believed that Jews had played a major part in Germany's defeat in WWI. Jews were prominent in some sectors of the economy around the world such as banking/finance and some sections of the media.
If one looks closely at anti-Jewish claims and rhetoric, at the stereotypes, it becomes clear that the prejudices are fundamentally anti-modern. Not surprisingly, sections of society that felt squeezed by economic and social changes in the period from about 1910-33 - such as the landowning aristocracy, owners of small shops and workshops - contained some of the most rabidly anti-Jewish elements.
There was also a regional dimension to this. Hostility to Jews was strongest in Bavaria, where Jews had played a particularly prominent part in the revolutions of Novemeber 1918-May 1919. Hostility to Jews was particulary strong in the Danube region, especially in Bavaria, Austria, Hungary, Romania.
These various anti-Jewish forces and beliefs reached a quasi-religious zeal in parts of the Nazi movement and culminated in the Holocaust.

They were naked, unfed, unclean, and treated like dirt! How can these nazis be so heartless?
The largest Nazi concentration camp was Auschwitz, which was also an extermination camp. The Auschwitz group of camps consisted of three camps on the main site and a further 45 smaller sub-camps. More then one million Jews were killed there. The main camp is about 37 miles west of Krakow in Poland.
The minimum serious estimate of the number of victims who perished there is 1.1 million, of whom at least 85% were Jews.
Auschwitz. So large that it was divided into 3 sub-camps.
