The Effects of Anti-Semitism

What is Anti-Semitism

Anti-Semitism is an ideal that was adopted by Adolf Hitler in his book Mein Kampf. The book was published in 1925 and talks about the destruction of the weak and providing for the strong.

How Did This Book Help Hitler?

This Mein Kampf was originally directed for the followers of national socialism. Although it was only meant for the followers of national socialism, the book grew in popularity and allowed for Hitler to purchase the Mercedes car company while still imprisoned.

The Rise of Hitler

Along with the rise in popularity with the book, Hitler gained popularity and rose to power as chancellor of Germany in 1933 and a grown debt of his (around 8 million equivalent) was dismissed. Having the power that he gained, the people of Germany trusted him to lead the country into a safe future.

Use of Anti-Semitism

With the amount of power Hitler had gained in his rise, he killed millions of jews. The total count is six million (6,000,000). The ideal of Anti-Semitism was not globally accepted. Many citizens of Germany did not even approve of it.

The Justification

The whole reason Hitler chose to set out on exterminating every jew in existence was due to the crime rate and the decline of Germany from WWI. There is no absolute method of getting rid of and preventing crimes, but mass killings of the stereotyped group accused of all crime was not moral. There are several methods of controlling crime. The mass murder of millions was not a good choice made by Hitler.
