Essential Question

What happened in Europe, and to the jewish people due to Hitler’s plan to take over the country? How did this change history and WWII?

Germany and Holocaust Background Information

THE GOVERNMENT- Hitler was inspired by the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, and also wanted to brainwash the people of Germany by saying he could save the economy. Since the early 1930s the Nazis had been trying to take over the German government, they quickly gained supporters and were able to win 107 seats in the German parliament. By 1933, Hitler was named the Chancellor of Germany, and he soon overthrew Weiman the president to establish a dictatorship over Germany.

There are many thing that happened in 1941. First, Einstazgruppen is a mobile killing squad. The German soldiers traveled city to city and caused mass murders. This was a major cause of why the alliances (British, France and USA) joined to defeat the Germans.


The German-Jews were caught in between the Jews and the Germans. They had to wear gold stars and they knew they were going to be killed. Before concentration camps were even formed, the Jews had to live in ghettos. Ghettos were a placed where they rallied up all the Jews.


This was also the year when medical experimenting started. This started in concentration camps as medical torture and resulted in mental and physical disabilities. Hitler was delusional and he strived for complete power.

Jewish Suffering

The Jews had to run away because non-Jews due to discrimination and antisemitism. 1941 was a very intense year for the Jews. Many of the Jews were killed on the roads because German aircrafts dropped bombs, while others were killed by German soldiers by transporting them to camps. The German’s had ways to kill the Jews. For example on June 27th of 1941, the German’s assembled two thousand Jews into the Great Synagogue and burnt it down. On July 3rd, the Germans led the two thousand Jews into the forest and shot them to death. On September 3rd of 1941 were the first gassing test that happened on each camp. On September 17, 1941, that was the day where the transports began. The Germans took each Jew on a train and put them on a camp. Most of the Jews died in the boxcar due to lack of space and the dissemination of disease. In November of 1941, there were tallies that 45,476 Jews were killed. December 11th, 1941, was the day when things got really serious. Hitler declared war on United States. U.S.A then enters the war against Germany and they used 90% of their weapons on this war. This brought fear to the Jews and power to the Germans
