Did the Nazis plan to murder the Jews from the beginning of
Transcript of Did the Nazis plan to murder the Jews from the beginning of
“The black-haired Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end, satanically glaring at and spying on the un-suspicious girl whom he plans to seduce, adulterating her blood and removing her from the bosom of her own people. The Jew uses every possible means to undermine the racial foundations of a subjugated people.”
Hitler is saying that all Jews are trying to harm others and take away their life. It is obvious that he wishes that the Jews were not living and is trying to convince the pure Germans of that. This is because of what Hitler thinks the Jews will do as a race.
Mein Kampf is Adolf Hitler's first Autobiography. In this book he outlines his political ideas and his future plans for Germany. In the book, Hitler outlines his hatred for Jews and how he turned to antisemitism when living in Vienna (in Austria). He says 'The world's two evils: communism and Jews'. This potrays Hitler as having a reason to commit mass murder. However, he never mentions ever planning on killing them once in the novel.
"Mein Kampf" translates to my struggle, in English.
Quote from Hitler's early speeches
“But even more: all at once the Jew also becomes liberal and begins to rave about the necessary progress of mankind.”
Hitler is trying to say that the Jews are a liability as they are constantly scheming and that Nazi Germany would be better off without them. This is a hint as to what he is planning on doing in the future. But it does not suggest that he plans on murdering masses of Jews. This shows that Hitler was not planning on the murder of the Jews but just has a hard anger and hatred for them.
While Hitler made several references to killing Jews, both in his early writings in Mein Kampf and other literature. In various speeches during the 1930s, it is fairly certain that the Nazi's had no operative plan for the extreme murder of the Jews before 1941.
In 1942, a plan was made called "the final solution" by Heinrich Himmler. It was where Jews would be sent to concentration camps and gassed from there. It's estimated that approximately 6 million were killed. But this was made after 1941 which meant that Hitler must not have been planning the mass murder of the Jews. However, it portrays the Nazi's as having the ability to do so. But to conclude, the decision on murdering the Jews was planned in the late winter or the early spring of 1941. This shows that Hitler did not know that he would mass murder the jews before hand.
Did the Nazi's plan to murder the Jews from the beginning of their regime?
by Hannah, Ellie and Caili
When you hear the name Hitler, what do you think?
Was he a cold-blooded murderer of the jews or an innocent man in power?
We think that Hitler and the other leaders of the Nazi party had no intention of killing the Jews in the beginning. Although Hitler made several references to wanting the Jews to suffer, in his early writings. (For example, in his book "Mein Kampf" and his speeches in 1930). However, there is no certain plan of the mass murder until 1941. This is because the Nazi's were planning on killing the Jews in 1941 for the 'final solution'.
Quotes from Hitlers early speeches in 1930:
“The black-haired Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end, satanically glaring at and spying on the unsuspicious girl whom he plans to seduce, adulterating her blood and removing her from the bosom of her own people. The Jew uses every possible means to undermine the racial foundations of a subjugated people.” He is saying that all Jews are trying to harm others and take away their life. It is obvious that he wishes that there were not here and is trying to convince his people that they don’t deserve to live because of what they do as a race.
