Why Hitler Killed 6 Million People


Adolf Hitler was the leader of Germany during World War II. During his time as leader, he killed 6 million Jewish people in what is called the Holocaust. Hitler was a man that thought he was right but he just was just really selfish and crazy. Adolf Hitler caused the deaths of many innocent people by using fear and intimidation and blaming Germany’s economic problems on Jewish people.



Hitler used fear and intimidation to scare Jewish people to maintain power and make sure nobody tries to take him over. The United Holocaust Museum states that, ”He used fear and intimidation, particularly the Brownshirt’s, to consolidate and maintain power.” It proves my topic sentence because it talks about fear and intimidation and how Hitler scared a lot of people into working with him. The Brownshirt’s are a department of the Nazi military that would scare the Jewish people. Philadelphia University states,  ”By using intimidation tactics Hitler was able to gain power and eventually gain enough support to invade Austria and Poland” it justifies my topic sentence because it talks about how Hitler used intimidation and fear. Hitler used his influence and intimidation to gain power to invade  Austria for more power. The United Holocaust Museum states. ”a new state propaganda apparatus headed by Joseph Goebbels manipulated and deceived the German population and the outside world.” it validates my topic sentence because my topic sentence talks about how Hitler intimidated and scared people. Hitler intimated people and scared them with propaganda.overall Hitler intimidated people and used propaganda to scare people to get what he wants.



Adolf Hitler convinced Germans that Jewish people deserved to die which resulted in the deaths of over six million people. The national memorial holocaust museum states  notes that, “A recurrent theme in Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda was that Jews spread diseases. To prevent non-Jews from attempting to enter the ghettos… German authorities posted quarantine signs at the entrances, warning of the danger of contagious disease.”The Germans would think that if the Jewish people could give them diseases or kill them that the Jewish people would need to die. Hitler used separation to prevent people from being friends with Jewish people.The Nazis tried to prevent the the Germans from seeing the conditions of the ghettos that Hitler put Jewish people in. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum goes on to state, “The Nazi regime cynically publicized the existence of Theresienstadt as a residential community… In reality, the ghetto served as a transit camp for deportations to ghettos and killing centers…”. Hitler was trying to convince the people that are against him, that he isn’t doing anything wrong. By doing that, he was able to gain more followers. Hitler was convincing people that the killing centers are actually retirement homes. Essentially, he was lying to German people. History.com states that “At Auschwitz alone, more than 2 million people were murdered in a process resembling a large-scale industrial operation. Hitler started by putting Jewish people in ghettos and making a lie up about quarantine zone and then he made a big killing camp operation. Hitler started a cross country operation of killing camps. Hitler killed 6 million people during World War II because he thought that the Jewish people caused an economic downcline.



Hitler was a leader during World War II and caused the holocaust and that killed 6 million Jewish people he thought that what he  was right because the economic downcline was something to blame Jewish people for but it was never there fault
