The Holocaust was one of the largest genocides in the history of the world. An estimated amount of over 11 million people were killed over that Dark Age in human history. All caused by the horrid visions of one man Adolf Hitler. The Holocaust to me is proof that widespread chaos can be caused by ill set speeches. Adolf was said to be one of the best speakers of his age. He convinced hundreds of thousands of German people that his cause was noble and just. This in the end, resulted in grave and despicable darkness for the people of the Jewish religion.

Secondly, I think that the world found out how bad having a dictator, or corrupt military leader is. My third point is, I think we have learned from the Holocaust how precious a human life is. The holocaust was a turning point in the world’s perspective in how we treat religions and genocides. Though part of me thinks that the world hasn’t learned about how mass killing is still happening today. Through abortion , we are killing millions of young children even though it may not seem like an importance we still have to realize whatever you may call it , its still “murder”.

What shocked me most about the Holocaust is that out of all those killings more non-Jewish people were killed rather than actual Jews. To me that says that the killing was mostly by religious differences or quick accusations. That also shows me that the Holocaust was jus plain out evil works. What also interested me the most about the holocaust is that Jews were given a curfew in Germany. Also Jews were required to wear yellow stars on their clothing, so they could be identified. One thing I was shocked to see is that in 1933 Nazi’s passed a law that allowed for “decontamination” of those who had genetic defects , following that they passed another law that allowed beggars, the homeless, and alcoholics to be sent
