Extracts from this document...

Introduction

What were Nazi racial ideas and how did they deal with the Jews? Nazis hated the Jews and they introduced a lot of new ideas before World War 2. The new ideas tried to get across a message to the whole of Germany that the Jews were to blame for all there bad times. Hitler wanted to get rid of the Jews and you will now find out some of the things he did. Adolf Hiter wanted a master race. He had strict rules about who could be in this 'master race'. The Nazis retrieved old traditions back to Germany and also brought back a lot of festivals. The Nazis also used propaganda against the Jews. They told the German people that they were a special race. Historical myths were also created which said that Germans descended from a purebred Aryan race. In this Aryan race the people had blond hair, blue eyes, tall and well built. ...read more.

people have against the Jews and if it is put in a leaflet people will see it and this will lead to more people disliking or even hating the Jews. Propagana was used and the ideas that Jews had bad meat, where fat, ugly and unhyginec was rasied. This was to try and stop people shopping in Jewish shops.

Conclusion

It was probably organised by Joseph Gobbles and the SA although he claimed the violence was a result of 'righteous indignation' of German people against those who were swindling them. After Crystal Night the numbers of Jews wishing to leave Germany increased dramatically. It has been calculated that between 1933 and 1939, approximately half the Jewish population of Germany (250,000) left the country. This included several Jewish scientists who were to play an important role in the fight against fascism during the war. A higher number of Jews would have left but anti-Semitism was not restricted to Germany and many countries were reluctant to take them. The 'Final Solution' was the decision in 1941 to kill all Jews. Mass shootings in Eastern Europe were put ahead. Einstagruppen killed thousands in their own homes and villages. Jews were transported across Europe in cattle trucks. In addition to the original concentration camps a number of extermination camps were set up, mainly occupying Poland. Here over 6 million Jews were murdered between 1941 and 1945 at the Wannsee Conference in Berlin, which envisaged the killing of all Jews in German occupied Europe. ...read more.
