Who, what, When, Where, Why

Under the dictating leadership of Adolf Hitler (1889-1945), the Nazi Party grew into a mass movement and ruled Germany through totalitarian (of or relating to a system of government that is centralized and dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the state.) means from 1933 to 1945. Founded in 1919 as the German party promoted German pride and anti-Semitism, and showed their rage and disagreement with the terms of the Treaty of Versailles, the 1919 peace settlement that ended World War I (1914-1918) and required Germany to make a large amount of concessions and reparations. Hitler joined the party the year and became its leader in 1921. In 1933, he became chancellor of Germany and his Nazi government soon marked dictatorial powers. After Germany’s defeat in World War II (1939-45), the Nazi Party was outlawed and many of its top officials were convicted of war crimes related to the murder of some 6 million European Jews during the Nazis’ reign.

the Jewish Perspective On the Holocaust

Most of the Jews felt abandoned during their time of need. Some felt that God didn't exist to them. If he was real and was all mighty like the bible says he was, they feel like the whole situation wouldn't of happened. Others faith stayed strong during the time they were tortured and many killed.

Media Bias/ Selection or Omission

For all of these reasons, in all media and in almost all public pronouncements, there was throughout the war not much awareness of the special fate of the Jews of Europe. Sometimes this was simply due to a lack of information, sometimes the result of spontaneous and "well-meaning" categories of thought and speech. The Holocaust was underestimated and wasn't able to be fully recognized by the people of its time period in different parts of the world.

criticism #1/ Marxist

Hitler was a very persuasive speaker and was the founding father of the Nazi party. His mindset was that the Jews were below him and they should be looked down upon, so he gave the Germans hope and made them think that he was doing the right thing. He was also commander of the armed forces and was able to create jobs to become more powerful during the Nazi Invasion.

criticism #2 Historical

looking at the events that happened so long ago, couldn't be changed or looked past. the events that happened were sad and unnecessary and the situation should of been handled sooner. If people knew then what they knew now i feel like the situation would of went differently.
