Transcript of The Witch Hunt : Holocaust

Jon Brautigam and Ryan Gaudet
In the month of January 1933, the Holocaust began in Germany. The countries involved included Poland, UK, Austria, Hungary and of course Germany. The important people that were involved into the Holocaust were Hitler, Himmler, Geobbels, and Mussolini. The important people from some of the Allies were F.Roosevelt from the US, W.Churchill from the UK, and from the Soviet Union J.Stalin.
Background Information
The Accused & The Accusers
The Accused were mainly Jews but they were not the only ones. Other ethnicity's like the Gypsies, Poles, the Russians, etc. were also involved. These groups were accused because their political, ideological, and behavioral backgrounds were different from what "The Accusers" wanted them to be. Some consisted of Communists, Socialists, J.Witnesses and Homosexuals. The Accusers were the Nazi's and the main people involved included (Hitler, Himmler, Goebbels, and Mussolini).
Justification for Persecution
Was there any validity to the case?
The justification for the persecution of the victims was because Nazi's believed that German's were racially "superior" and that Jews were a "inferior" alien threat, to the so-called German racial community. So there was no reasonable validity to the case, because it was based apon the germans belief.
The Outcome of the Witch Hunt
The marches continued on until May 7, 1945. It was the same day when the German armed forces surrendered unconditionally to The Allies. Basically ending the Holocaust. Some other countries were bombed and abused like France, Germany, England, Japan, and Russia. during WWII

Some of the biases that were present in the witch hunt were Racial/Ethnic differences all because certain people were targeted by their different race or ethnicity. Another bias that was present was Cultural differences. If your culture was different they would target those people too.
What biases were present in your witch hunt?
Witch Hunt : The Holocaust
What qualities make The Holocaust a Witch Hunt?
First, a Witch Hunt is a situation where accusations are made freely, especially against someone or something that is not popular with the majority. The Holocaust is considered a Witch Hunt because it has to do with many political indifference's and beliefs, between the Nazi's and anyone how they freely deemed "inferior" to Hitler's own belifes.
How did the belief systems, fears, biases, etc. of the society/time period play into this situation becoming a Witch Hunt?
The Holocaust was a systematic, governmental, state-sponsored persecution. They murdered approximately 6 MILLION Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators or Allies. Again, Nazi's believed that Germans were "racially superior" and Jews were "racially inferior".
