The Holocaust is a horrible thing that happened in the early 19th century. Families were killed because of their race or religion. The aftermath was that it reduced the German population by 13%, food and supplies were scarce at times. If I was a Jew at that time I would go into hiding or get out of the country. I would not tell anyone except for my family. Propaganda was a huge part of what ended up leaving a crippled broken world. Jews were shown as a curse that took jobs from German people.
Hindenburg stopped being president in 1933. When he died, Hitler, took over and made people swear an oath to follow him as a leader. Restrictions on other races were made, and even racist things were taught in school. Hitler tried to make a racially pure country. Jews were outcasted a lot and even Swastikas were attacked. The swastika is an ancient religious icon used in the Indian subcontinent, East Asia, and Southeast Asia, where it has been and remains a sacred symbol of spiritual principles in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.
People would get measured from their noses to find out if they were Jews or not. Jews were not allowed to do many things. Isolation came to races, and more propaganda was being made to make Jews look bad. Jew businesses and Jewish worship places were being vandalized. Hitler and his Nazi army took over sending people, Hitler, did not approve of to concentration camps. It was not until a few years later that other countries found out and wanted to help the helpless people stuck in German camps.
December 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland. Germany won over a lot of countries. Their power was only getting bigger and bigger. “The Final Solution” during World war two impacted many lives, including people outside of Germany and Europe. And, orphan children were the most fortunate because they had no home and no food at times. Jews were treated a lot differently The Star of David had to be put on all Jewish things including clothing and businesses. In Europe, antisemitism, nationalism, anti-communism, and opportunism induced citizens of nations, Germany, occupied to collaborate with the Nazi.
Many collaborations were made. Hitler was not the only person who did evil things, people including Hans Frank who was a German war criminal and lawyer who worked for the Nazi Party during the 1920s and 1930s and later became Adolf Hitler's personal lawyer. And Ilse Kock who took advantage of Jews and used their skin for products like books or carpets. The Gestapo were Secret Police, formed out of the existing state police after the Nazis took power. The members of the SA were largely former soldiers, ruffians, and men of violent natures, whose job was to originally protect the Nazi rallies, fight people from the leftist parties and physically assault political opponents. However, these tactics were quite useful for the rise of the Nazi movement. The SS was founded by Adolf Hitler which is also known as the Nazi party.
