Advice 1: What are the causes of the Holocaust

The causes of the Holocaust... They can be called, stating the prerequisites. But none of these reasons, and all together, never be able to justify or explain why the incident was possible. Why Disaster struck. Why the so-called "cultural nation" calmly and methodically killed 6 million people. For mankind it will always remain beyond understanding.

Historians, sociologists, political scientists, philosophers, religious scholars, theologians, psychologists - dozens of scientists struggling with the answer to the question "what are the causes of the Holocaust." They might be able to give the most close to the truth answer - then - and - if they can ever get organized. Now the causes of the Holocaust examines each of them with his narrow point of view.

Questions, questions, questions...

Anti-Semitism is whether the main reason? And maybe "weird" interpretation of economic "necessity" - an asymmetric response to the victory in the First world? Or distorted understanding of medical research? Or the fault lies with the people, departed from their God, thus violating God's chosen people? Or the Holocaust was a result of the struggle with the Bolsheviks-Communists? Or maybe everything is simpler: the evil will of one, to undermine the power of the psychopath, nurture a shameful irrational hatred, found support among the same as he did – "like-minded party", with psychologically related to sadistic pathology?

In any case, the ideologues and perpetrators of the Holocaust somehow thought justified to our descendants at least twice: after the Nuremberg laws in 1935 and settled them in 1942 in the program plan of genocide at the Wannsee conference.

However, none of the war criminals convicted at the Nuremberg trials and Israeli processes – from Kaltenbrunner to Eichmann - not helped reference to any of the adopted laws, orders, doctrines, decisions or decrees requiring the destruction of Jews, Gypsies and other peoples because there is a simple and human, and the difficult legal concept of a "criminal order".

Anti-Semitism, as a prerequisite of the Holocaust

Irrational hatred of the Jewish people for centuries rooted in the land. The origins of this hatred can be found in the denseness of the popular crowds, exposed to the aggressive influence of the first Christian priests, and many others. This hatred has long been a archetype of the attitude towards foreigners in General, and not like anyone in particular. Therefore to speak about any special German anti-Semitism is not necessary. Many times in any of the centuries after Christ, here and there, out of the darkness pop up, and pop up now odarennye anger the faces of the fighters for the purity of the nation: whether Spanish, American, Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Arabic Islamists and bring them the number. When a critical mass builds up, then wait for the riots becomes an everyday occupation the Jewish people.

After the first world war and before the Second, the bell of anti-Semitism for the German Jews sounded repeatedly, becoming unbearably loud. But a watershed day for all of human history – 30 January 1933 – the day when President Hindenburg appointed Hitler Chancellor of Germany, passed almost unnoticed.

However, initiated by Hitler's Nuremberg racial laws, depriving Jews of their civil rights, and the massacre under the beautiful name "crystal night," has sobered many of those who still inescapably believed in humanity and common sense.

Why did German Jews massively left the "overnight" brutal country, yet it was possible? It also has a number of reasons.

The new German government is really carefully squeezed the Jews out of the country, but it is not going to release them "for free". Arranged various bureaucratic obstacles from which it was necessary to pay off and not everyone can afford it. Those who could, often, work the usual narrow-minded adaptability, as well as an irrational hope for the best, and the rational belief that their social status is still unshakable. It remained in Germany and Austria the Jews were the first settlers methodically a ghetto and concentration camps the first victims of the Holocaust.

Economic reasons

After the First world war, Germany was in a deep depression and economic crisis. In the presence of a wealthy and successful stratum of citizens with Jewish names.

The concept of constant and ever-increasing joy of life and national unity formulated by Goebbels, demanded urgently to find Finance for the arrangement of General holiday of life and the same for an enemy nation, around which all could unite.

The solution chosen by Goebbels, was, as I believe some Russian scientists, to genius is simple: the enemy was assigned to the close conceptual and odious – the Jews. After the appointment of such an enemy the issue of replenishment of the state Treasury and the personal accounts of the Nazi elite in Swiss banks, resolved itself. Difficult decisions no one was looking and demanded.

Expropriation of the disenfranchised Jewish population of considerable funds, Bank deposits, property, jewelry, businesses, shops, farms, etc. – legalized robbery in broad daylight, plus a gigantic scale extortion – off travelling abroad, it is extremely corrected the German economy. Loyal and "pure-blooded Aryans" received almost nothing all of the above and more, which remained after the "disappeared" into nothingness.


If earlier all were taken by the German state machine to exterminate Jews and other peoples were widespread, but not completely formulated a plan, after the outbreak of the Second world war, the German leadership considered it necessary to systematize and develop the experience.

My favorite slogan of the führer the final solution of the Jewish question, which was stated by him in the early 20-ies, officially apply for the program at a special conference convened on 20 January 1942, near lake Wannsee, near Berlin. The authors of the program gradually planned and structured all that was needed to completely genocide the entire Jewish population in Europe. Their plan they called ' the final solution of the Jewish question."

It was after January 20, 1942 machine of the extermination of Jews, along with Gypsies and other nationalities, was put on stream, and none of the performers were not interested in the question – why? It was just a job. Daily and routine. Disciplined servants of the great Reich strived to find the best solution to optimize labor and production. Can we call a good performance of employment duties by reason of the Holocaust? Possible. In any case, the moral aspect of this work is not exactly worried about those who did.

Immorality. Immorality is elevated to the absolute, lovingly cherished pseudo-puritanical "morality" of society: from the promoters, members, General, to ordinary performers of the genocide, immorality, as a state ideology – that's probably the main reason for the Holocaust.

Advice 2: What the Nazis hated the Jews

The racist ideology of fascism assumed superiority of the Aryan race over all other peoples. Slavs, for example, was intended partly to keep and make servants of "Superman". The Jewish nation in this world of space was not provided.
The Holocaust
First of all we should define the terminology. For most contemporaries, there is no difference between "fascism" and "national socialism". Fascism as an ideology was born in Italy and pursued the revival of the Roman Empire based on the unity of the nation. National socialism (Nazism) is a product of Hitler, contains the idea of superiority of the German nation over all other Nations of the world. The theory of the state through the prism of Nazism was based on the creation of a unified society, and society race, based on racial discrimination. The future was supposed to be exclusively for the Aryan race, the rest either had to be destroyed, or to perform service functions.
One of the first peoples to total destruction were the Jews. The basis of the idea of extermination of the Jews formed religious motives, spelled out in the Bible. It is known that Christ was crucified the Jews, that their descendants were doomed to be responsible for my entire existence. This was the reason for the persecution of the Jews throughout the Christian world, including in the Russian Empire. Not the fact that the Jews crucified Jesus, there are other versions, but the format of national socialism, the pursuit of the purity of the nation this ideas could not be better.
Some point, Hitler was troubled by the fact that Jesus actually was a Jew himself, so attempts were made to completely rebuild Christianity, where the divine nature was supposed to represent Aryan blood. To rebuild the age-old Christian ideology, of course, beyond the power of even such a strong speaker, like Hitler, but to convince the nation that all their troubles are the fault of the Jews, was easy.
The true background of the persecution of the Jews is more economic in nature. After the First world war, Germany was in deep economic crisis. Large wealth have been concentrated in the hands of Jewish Industrialists and bankers, not because of the defeat of Germany in the war, of course, but the fact remains, a large part of the intelligentsia, doctors, scientists were Jewish. The main objective pursued by Hitler, was the expropriation of property belonging to German Jews.
Technology hate worked the whole organization, Jews were accused not only in the crucifixion of Christ, but in the economic problems of the German people. Of the people, fanatically believe the Fuehrer was not required specific evidence, with the result that the world is facing one of the worst crimes against humanity – the Holocaust.

Advice 3: Which country is easier to move?

Many Russians believe that life at Home became unbearable. Someone is not satisfied with the restriction of political freedoms, some low wages and high crime. Anyway, the percentage of immigrants is constantly growing, working-age population is leaving.
At customs

If you unique an engineer, a physicist, a chemist, a famous athlete or an oligarch, you have all the chances to go to Canada, Australia or the USA. To get to the United States, it is also possible, winning the lottery, conducted by the country and received a residence permit (Green Card).

It will be easy to relocate the descendants of foreigners. Many countries are now proposing to obtain a residence permit and citizenship by repatriation. The most popular and well-known "consumer" of immigrants is, of course, the state of Israel. If your mom, dad, grandfather or grandmother were Jewish, you will easily get the opportunity to stay in this country. In addition to Israel, the opportunity to emigrate the Jews of Germany provides as compensation for the Holocaust.

If you believe that any opportunities to go on a work visa you have, and the ancestors are descended from the peoples of Russia, you can go as a business migrant. Before a residence permit for osnovany "business" was easy to obtain in the Czech Republic, and this took hundreds of thousands of our compatriots. Then the whole city started talking in Russian, and a business visa to issue almost stopped.

No less popular among immigrants in Spain. It is a country with a great climate and friendly people. However, for the chance to bask under the Spanish sun will have to shell out about thirty thousand euros and compete with the local bureaucrats.

The sweet heart Russian government is, of course, Bulgaria. To obtain a residence permit, opening a representative office of a foreign company or hiring ten citizens of Bulgaria. Visa give willingly, against the Russian-speaking gorgeous, the climate is mild, font Cyrillic, low crime. That is why in Bulgaria resides several hundred thousand Russian citizens.

If you want summer all year round, exotic and adventurous but don't want all this to pay, you can go to Southeast Asia. The most popular among Russian Thailand. So, in Pattaya Russian speech can be heard almost if not more than Thai. The only disadvantage of living in Thailand is the need to cross the border for visa extension. Now competition for Thailand is Cambodia.

Advice 4: How many people died in the great Patriotic war

The problem of human losses of the USSR and Germany during the great Patriotic war was repeatedly raised in publications and television programs, but to a common opinion of the researchers the question never came. Currently, many sources of literature and network resources through which you can learn more about the great Patriotic war that were previously a mystery.
How many people died in the great Patriotic war

Soviet losses

According to the census in 1939 in the USSR lived 170 million. Before the Second world war, the Soviet population was the high mortality rate and low life expectancy, but the high birth rate helped to stabilize the situation in the state. About the irretrievable loss of the red Army long period of not talking at all. In 1947 began to appear the first evidence that in the great Patriotic War killed more than 7 million Soviet citizens, while not considered prisoners of war and militias. Later assessment of the casualties were engaged Khrushchev, Solzhenitsyn, and many other outstanding figures, based on data from conscripts. For instance, Solzhenitsyn in his writings argued about the loss of 20 million Soviet citizens. Boris Sokolov, candidate and doctor of Philology, using the method of computation, found that only the armed forces of the USSR lost about 26 million people. Based on official statistical reports, it became known that a significant proportion of the victims is the military, namely 13.6 million people.
Based on documents published in the first half of 90-ies, it can be argued that the true value of the losses of the Soviet Union amounted to nearly 27 million people, which exceeds the losses of the Eastern front.

German losses

Despite the fact that since the end of world war II many years have passed, there are countries that do not have estimated all demographic losses. In the list of such countries is Germany. Foreign historians several times attempted to hold an unofficial estimate of casualties, but the results were not truthful. During the study it became clear that the front killed about 4,270 million soldiers, not including those killed in captivity and civilians. According to official sources, the total human losses of Germany in the great Patriotic war amounted to about 11.5 million people, but this information does not show the whole reality. The true extent of the tragedy of the German people will not show none of the statistical services. In addition, some of the archival documents about the deaths of people lost, so to calculate the exact loss will be very difficult.

The Holocaust

It is also worth mentioning the horrible tragedy in the lives of the Jewish people, which occurred in the years of the great Patriotic War. Germany was created the death camps, tried to forcibly take the entire Jewish population, including children and senior citizens. Racial harassment began with the fact that Jews could not attend public institutions, use of means of transport and to walk the streets. This fascism is not stopped. Very soon the Jews were to mark mark – a yellow star of David on their clothes. For the period of the Second World War killed 6 million Jews, comprising one third of the Jewish population all over the world.
