HOLOCAUST - EDUCATIONAL - DIGEST

  1. THE FINAL SOLUTION

    The Holocaust is widely known but little understood. To understand this enormous tragedy we have to find the answers to basic questions:
    1. What Happened?
    2. Who Ordered the Killings?
    3. Why Were the Jews Killed?
    4. The War Against the Jews.
    5. Who Organized the Holocaust?
    6. Anti-Semitism
    7. Victims of Anti-Semitism.


  2. NAZI METHODS:

    The war against the Jews was conducted with military precission, using an array of weapons:
    1. Terror and Starvation Random terror, starvation were used demoralize the victims.
    2. Collective Responsibility Collective responsibility, deceit, rumors, were used to give the victims false hope, to guide them to the gas chambers and mass graves.
    3. Deception The Nazis, used extensive psychological warfare methods, to keep the victims unaware of their pending destruction.
    4. Dehumanization Naked, starved people were transported for weeks, without food, water or sanitary conditions. Removing any semblance of humanity, made their killing easier for the murderers.
    5. Victims Help in the Destruction The Nazis, used extensively labor of the victims in the process of self-destruction.
    6. The Worst Death Camp - Belzec

  3. HITLER'S GERMANY:

    The Nazi State was a state without structure, resting solidly on four pillars:
    1. Hitler's Popularity Hitler was a charismatic German leader, adored by the masses.
    2. Propaganda Lies frequently repeated, were accepted as the truth.
    3. Terror Terror was supplied by the SS, Gestapo, and the myriad of police organizations.
    4. Blind Obedience Blind obedience was required and received from all Germans.
    5. Hijacking Of the Nazi Revolution

    Popularity-Terror-Propaganda-Obedience were the pillars that supported Hitler's rule.
  4. HITLER THE LEADER:

    1. Hitler the Phenomena Despite outward appearance of strength, Hitler was a weak, paranoid coward, driven by powerful passions.
    2. Hitler and the Jews Hitler had little contact with Jews, but hated them passionately. Why?
    3. Hitler the Syphilitic Syphilis, explains his behavior, paranoia, detachment from reality, explains Hitler's behavior.
    4. Conclussions A powerful nation followed deranged leader, on a warpath of destruction. Why?

  5. THE HOLOCAUST ORGANIZERS:
  6. Three Hitler's henchmen converted Hitler's unreal notion of exterminating the European Jewry into reality.
    1. Himmler Himmler, the shy, inhibited romantic with the imbecile expression on his face , provided the raw killing power.
    2. Heydrich Heydrich, the dashing, daring, master of dirty tricks, blazed the trails of human cruelty. He organized this ghastly affair, using his superior manipulative powers and intimate knowledge of human weaknesses.
    3. Goebbels Goebbels, the clubfooted, gold-mouthed spineless liar, poisoned the Germans with hatred toward the Jews.

  7. THE VICTIMS
  8. he Jews survived until Hitler came along. What happened? Why did the survival mechanism, that worked so splendidly for 2000 years, fail? What were the tools of survival?
    1. The Law The extended religious Laws, took precedence over local secular laws, helped in preserving the national identity.
    2. Symbolic State The Royalty of the Torah and the Dream of Return to Zion were the symbols of a homeland.
    3. Martrydom - Kiddush Hashem Ancient military traditions were suppressed , substituted with the acceptance of martyrdom.
    4. Decentralization Lack of central authority helped in adjustment and fostered self-reliance in normal times but were a hinderance during emergencies.
    5. Jewish Values Strong family ties and communal spirit, were necessary for survival. Armed resistance, heroism, military prowess were pushed into the background.
    6. The Holocaust Syndrome
    7. Jewish Resistance
    8. Forgotten Heroes of the Holocaust
    9. Other Genocides

  9. HOLOCAUST BYSTANDERS
