The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is an international document.
In this document basic rights and fundamental freedoms are stated to which all human beings are entitled to. The Universal Declaration was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on the 10th December 1948. Hitler was born on April 20, 1889 in Braunau Am Inn, Austria.
His parent were Alois Hitler and Klara Polzl (alphahistory.com). Hitler was the fourth child of six. When Hitler was three he and his family relocated from Austria to Germany(alphahistory.com). In Hitler’s youth years he dreamed of becoming an artist(biography.com). He applied to the Vienna Academy of Art in 1907 and 1908 however he was denied both times(alphahistory.
com). Hitler ended up joining the German military in WW1. After the war Hitler received the Iron Cross First Class and also the Black Wound Badge(biography.
com). Hitler started to compose speeches opposed to the treaty of Versailles, Jews and additional groups.Adolf Hitler had an agenda to achieve total and tyrannical power. He aimed at destroying all democratic rights (biography.com). Hitler wanted to illuminate all the Jews and those who did not agree with his beliefs.
This is known as the holocaust, a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered six million European Jews. This was around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. In his book “Mein Kampf,” written long before he came to power, Hitler made it clear how he felt when he wrote of anti-Semitism that, “its final objective must unswervingly be the removal of the Jews altogether.
“. Hitler wanted to illuminate all the Jews because he saw them as to be the ones to blame for Germanys problems such as its defeat in World War 1 (28 July 1914 to 11 November 1918). On the 30th of January 1933 Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany by President Hindenburg. In Germany Hitler continued to rise however it was because of political problems he became chancellor. Without those political problems he may not have become chancellor because he was not elected for that position (thoughtco.com). Hitlers ideas made the people restless and ready for a dictator to come to power. This was an argument that seems to be the most convincing and logical conclusion to reach as to why he became the Chancellor.
“I will employ my strength for the welfare of the German people, protect the Constitution and laws of the German people, conscientiously discharge the duties imposed on me, and conduct my affairs of office impartially and with justice to everyone,” swore Adolf Hitler (istoryplace.com)Hitler created concentration camps to firstly jail those who went against his beliefs, against his government or anyone that seemed like a threat to his government. In March 1933, the first concentration camp, Dachau, opened outside of Munich, Germany. During the Holocaust there were more than 42,000 incarceration sites. Not all of these facilities were concentration camps however that if what they are referred to now(encyclopedia.ushmm.org).
The germens that were in charge of these camps would make it such a horrible place and they would want that knowledge to leak out because this would declare their loyalty towards Hitler where’s if they made it nice inside the camps it would be the opposite. Concentration camps served the dual purpose of controlling the majority of the population because of the fear they engendered and also locking away those who crossed the line, a line imposed by the Nazi government (historylearningsite.com).
Hitler did not have any issues with how harsh these camps were. Before he became Chancellor in January 1933 he said to Hermann Rauschning: “We must be ruthless. We must regain our clear conscience as to ruthlessness. Only thus shall we purge our people of their softness and sentimental philistinism, of their easy going nature and their degenerate blight in beer-swilling.
We have no time for fine sentiments. I don’t want the concentration camps transferred into penitentiary institutions. Terror is the most effective instrument. I shall not permit myself to be robbed of it simply because a lot of stupid, bourgeois mollycoddlers choose to be offended by it.” (historylearningsite.com). As time when by Hitler become all the more ruthless and starting enforcing laws that consisted of people that: had darkened skin, were Jewish, were elderly and/or disabled, were homosexuals and anyone who showed that they disagreed with his beliefs (biography.
com). The Nazis were skilled propagandists that effectively used propaganda to win the support of millions of Germans in a democracy and, later in a dictatorship, to facilitate persecution, war, and ultimately genocide. The stereotypes and images found in Nazi propaganda were not new however they were already familiar to their intended audience. They used sophisticated advertising techniques and the most current technology of the time to spread their messages across to everyone (encyclopedia.ushmm.org).
Some scholars believe that Hitlers strongest tendencies toward anti-Semitism took hold much later when he became involved in the Nazi party. Either way, it’s clear that by the time Hitler gained power in 1933, he blamed the Jews for nearly all of Germany’s struggles. When Hitler failed the exam to get into the Vienna Academy of Arts he left Vienna depressed (thehistoryplace.com).
when Hitler was a youth he was known for growing up and becoming one of the most well-known political leaders of all time (hitlerschildren.com).The Holocaust was one of the worst and most horrific events that took place in the worlds history.
It was the largest attempted genocide ever. The Jewish Holocaust has to be one of the largest events that has ever violated human rights. The Holocaust began in 1933 with Adolf Hitler leading the anti-Jew campaign which ultimately led to the torture and murder of over six million Jews in Germany. Hitler’s campaign not only affected the Jews but others would be labelled as “undesirable” as well. Hitler took all human rights away from people that him and the Nazi Party were against. Pre-war Germany didn’t have any laws referring to the concept of ‘human rights’.
The human rights conventions were written in about 1966, and only apply to the nations which subscribe to them therefor whilst the holocaust was occurring he, at the time wasn’t violating any human rights.
