Stages of the Holocaust

  • "First they came for the Communists, but I was
    not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they
    came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists,
    but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then
    they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I
    did not speak out. And when they came for me,
    there was no one left to speak out for
    me."      -Martin Niemoeller on the failure to
    speak up against the Nazis

A Secret Plan
  • In the fall of 1938, the parents of a five
    month old boy wrote to Adolf Hitler. In their
    letter, they told Hitler that their son was born
    blind, had a leg and part of an arm missing and
    seemed to be mentally impaired. They asked Hitler
    to allow their doctor to kill the child in a
    merciful manner.

10
Hitler sent his own doctor to examine the baby.
After the doctor confirmed the babys condition,
Hitler granted the parents request. The doctor
gave the child a drug, and the baby was put to
sleep. The cause of death was recorded as heart
failure.
11
  • In granting the permission, Hitler saw an
    opportunity to improve the Aryan race and to save
    the government money. In October 1939, just one
    month after World War II began, he authorized a
    top secret mass-murder program.

12
  • The program targeted physically and mentally
    disabled infants, children, teenager, and adults
    living in hospitals and institutions. By killing
    these patients, the Nazis could use the money
    saved on their care to fund the war effort. It
    would also free more doctors, nurses and hospital
    to care for wounded soldiers.

13
  • A new law soon required all nurses to report
    deformed newborn babies. Nazi doctors also
    selected patients too physically or mentally
    unfit to live productive lives. In the eyes of
    the Nazi government, these people were useless
    eaters and a burden to the taxpayer. It simply
    cost too much to care for them.

14
Stage 4 - Extinction
  • 1st Type - Mobile killing units round up Jews
    and shoot each one on the edge of the city.
  • Killed 1.5 million in 18 months.
  • Problem too hard for soldiers to have to kill
    people everyday.

15
Jews, on their way out of the city pass corpses
lying on the street.
16
Men first have to dig their own graves.

    Problem.
