The Holocaust

Adolf Hitler's Reasoning

- January 30, 1933: Adolf Hitler Chancellor is appointed of Germany.- March 22, 1933 - Nazis open Dachau concentration camp near Munich, to be followed by Buchenwald near Weimar in central Germany, Sachsenhausen near Berlin in northern Germany, and Ravensbrück for women.- March 24, 1933 - German Parliament passes Enabling Act giving Hitler dictatorial powers.- November 15, 1935: Germany defines a "Jew" as someone with two Jewish grandparents who identify themselves as Jews.- June 22, 1941: Germany invades the Soviet Union.- December 11, 1941 - Hitler declares war on the United States. President Roosevelt then asks Congress for a declaration of war on Germany saying, "Never before has there been a greater challenge to life, liberty and civilization." The U.S.A. then enters the war in Europe and will concentrate nearly 90 percent of its military resources to defeat Hitler.- August 4, 1944 - Anne Frank and family are arrested by the Gestapo in Amsterdam, then sent to Auschwitz. Anne and her sister Margot are later sent to Bergen-Belsen where Anne dies of typhus on March 15, 1945.- April 30, 1945 - Hitler commits suicide in his Berlin bunker, in fear of being captured.

Hitler called the Holocaust, 'The Final Solution.' He planned to kill all the Jews (along with mentally and physically handicapped people, gypsies, homosexuals, and people belonging to certain religions) because they were 'harming' Germany and in the way of their economic, social, and political success. Because of his liking to exaggeration, and a loud and powerful speaking voice, many people began to agree with his way of thinking.As a child, Hitler read a lot of propaganda and was easily able to blame Jewish people. He found others who shared this belief, and after awhile, the Nazi Party formed.
