Transcript of The Witch Hunt : Holocaust

Witch Hunt : The Holocaust Ericka Timberlake In the month of January of the year 1933, in the location of Germany The Holocaust began. 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 and etc. These groups were accused because of their political, ideological, and behavioral backgrounds were different from what "The Accusers" wanted for them to be. Some were Communists, Socialists, J.Witnesses and Homosexuals. The Accusers were the Nazi's and the main people involved (Hitler, Himmler, Goebbels, and Mussolini). Justification for Persecution Was there any validity to the case? The justification for the persecution was because Nazi's believed that German's were racially "superior" and that Jews were a "inferior" alien threat to so-called German racial community. There was no exact validity to the case. The Outcome of the Witch Hunt The marches continued on until the day of May 7, 1945. It was the same day when the German armed forces surrendered unconditionally to The Allies. Some other countries were bombed and abused like France, Germany, England, Japan, and Russia.

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? What qualities make The Holocaust a Witch Hunt? First, a Witch Hunt is an investigation carried out presumably to uncover disloyalty, political activity, and etc. But, The Holocaust is a Witch Hunt because it has to do with many political indifference's and beliefs. It is also a Witch Hunt because certain ethnicity's treat other ethnicity's differently. 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, bureaucratic, 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".
