Adolf Hitler is the Victorious!

Germany had been brought to nothing because of the Treaty of Versailles and the people were desperate for a better life. Adolf Hitler was the leader that Germany had been looking for. He had fought in WWI, the people felt he knew their struggles, and he appealed to the anti-Semitic feelings that many people had. Hitler played a major role in WWII because of his position as the Führer of one of the major Axis Powers. He also played a major part in the Holocaust (Shoah). The Holocaust was the genocide of approximately six million Jews, other ethnic groups, and peoples deemed “undesirable”; led by Hitler and the Nazi Party. Hitler had given many speeches speaking out against the Jewish people and he blamed them for the First World War. Hitler wanted to create the perfect race, or the Aryan race, but he felt that the Jewish people were poisoning the German blood and needed to be removed. As Germany began to fall in WWII, Hitler again turned to the Jews as the reasons behind the situation of the German army. “The Final Solution to the Jewish question” was put into place, and Hitler tried to fulfill his promise of the annihilation of the Jewish people.
