Throughout the reading for the second week, I have been having a burning question that I decided to research upon. For example, who was the man or women behind the mass murder of the Jews and creator of the concentration camps. In addition I have been wondering myself of who would have such cannibalistic act.
Adolf Hitler was the founder and leader of the Nazi party and the most influential voice in the organization, implication and execution of the holocaust, the system of extermination and ethic that killed of over 6 million Jews and non-Aryans.
Adolf Hitler was born in the early years of 1889 in Austria. He was the son of a 55-year-old Austrian official and his 3rd wife. As a young kid Hitler was a moody and lazy, he dreamed of becoming a painter. Subsequently, as a teenager boy he left in search of his dreams and moved to Vienna. In Vienna he adopted a view of life, which changed the world, he acquired hatred of Jews and Marxists, Liberalism and the cosmopolitan Habsburg monarchy. As time moved on he gathered his first experiences of politics, he believed in a world of “purity of blood” and ‘eternal Jew” which meant he believed the Jews where the cause of all chaos, corruption and destruction in culture, politics and economy. The press, prostitution, syphilis, capitalism, Marxism, democracy and pacifism--all were so many means which "the Jew" exploited in his conspiracy to undermine the German nation and the purity of the Aryan race.
Moving on, one of the themes that mostly stood out was power. The story dates back to the years of 1930-40’s in which many countries strived for power. As we all read in the book Germany one of them. We read in the book the Germany forces conquered Poland. During that time however, in that time racism and persecution grew; races such as the Jews we put to live in many concentration camps in which later on they would be unfortunately executed. As time went by German only thought about power which lead them to spread throughout the world.
