Historians, sociologists, political scientists, philosophers, religious scholars, theologians, psychologists - dozens of scientists are struggling with the question of the clue "what the causes of the Holocaust."They may be able to give the closest answer to the truth - when - and - if they can ever be united.Now the causes of the Holocaust are considered each of them with its narrow profile view.

Questions, questions, questions ...

whether the main reason for anti-Semitism?Or maybe "weird" interpreted the economic "necessity" - an asymmetrical response to the victorious countries of the First World?Or perverted understanding of medical research?Or the fault li
es with the people who have left their God, thus violating God's chosen people?Or the Holocaust was the result of the struggle with the Bolsheviks-communists?Or maybe everything is easier: the evil will of one, greedily to power psychopath nurture a shameful irrational hatred, was supported by the same he - "like-minded party," a psychologically related sadistic pathology?

In any case, the ideologists and perpetrators of the Holocaust for some reason thought that paid off before the descendants of at least twice: Take the Nuremberg Laws in 1935 and secure them in 1942 in the program plan of genocide at the Wannsee Conference.

However, none of the war criminals convicted at the Nuremberg and Israeli processes - from Kaltenbrunner to Eichmann - did not help sending any of the adopted laws, orders, doctrines, decisions or decrees requiring the extermination of Jews, Gypsies and other peoples asthere is a simple human, and not a simple legal concept - "criminal order".

Anti-Semitism, Holocaust as a prerequisite

irrational hatred of the Jewish people for centuries rooted to the ground.The origins of this hatred can be found in the denseness of folk crowds prone to militant influence the first Christian priests, and many others.This hatred has long since become an archetype relationship to foreigners in general, and, not like others, in particular.Therefore, to talk about some special German anti-Semitism is not necessary.Repeatedly in any of the centuries from the birth of Christ, here and there, from the darkness to pop up and float, and now, oscherennye anger faces of fighters for the purity of the nation: the Spanish Li, American, Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Arab Islamists andbring them the number.When they accumulate a critical mass, then wait for massacres become commonplace occupation of the Jewish people.

After the First World War and before the Second, bell-Semitism for German Jews sounded repeatedly by once again becoming unbearably loud.But the critical day for the entire history of mankind - January 30, 1933 - the day when President Hindenburg appointed Hitler chancellor of Germany, was for them almost unnoticed.

However, Hitler initiated the Nuremberg racial laws, deprived of civil rights of the Jews, and massacres under the beautiful name of "Crystal Night", he sobered many of those who still believe in the inescapable humanity and common sense.

Why German Jews did not leave en masse, "overnight" the mad country is still possible?On this there is also a number of reasons.

New German government really carefully squeezing the Jews out of the country, but it was not going to let them "for nothing".We organize various bureaucratic obstacles on which it was necessary to pay off, and not everyone could afford it.For those who could often fire normal philistine adaptability, as well as the irrational hope for the best and rational belief in what their social status was still unmoved.It remained in the German and Austrian Jews were the first settlers methodically furnished ghettos and concentration camps - and the first victims of the Holocaust.

Economic reasons

At the end of the First World War, Germany was in a deep depression and economic crisis.If you have a successful and wealthy strata of citizens with Jewish names.

concept of constant and ever-increasing joy of life and national unity, as formulated by Goebbels, demanded urgent to find finance everything for universal celebration of life and a common enemy for the nation, and around which it would be possible to unite.

Solution selected by Goebbels, was, as it is now considered by some Russian political scientists, ingeniously simple: the enemy was appointed a close and conceptually odious - Jews.Following the appointment of such an enemy of the 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 did not ask.

Expropriation have disfranchised the Jewish population of considerable funds, bank deposits, property, jewelry, businesses, shops, farms, etc.- Legalized robbery in broad daylight, plus a gigantic scale extortion - the mercy of people who travel abroad, very straightened the German economy.A loyal "pure Aryans" received almost nothing all of the above and much more, stay after the "disappeared" into oblivion.

Stolpersteine ​​

Previously everything was undertaken of the German state machine for the destruction of the Jews and other peoples were massive, but not fully articulated plan, after the Second World War German leadership deemed it necessary to organize and develop the experience.

Fuhrer's favorite slogan of the final solution of the Jewish question, which declares them in the early 20s, to formalize the program at a special conference convened by the January 20, 1942 near Lake Wannsee, near Berlin.The authors of the program in stages planned and structured all that was absolutely necessary for the genocide of the Jewish population in the whole of Europe.His plan they called very simply: "On the final solution of the Jewish question."

It is after January 20, 1942 Machine extermination of the Jews, and along with gypsies and other ethnic groups, it has been put on stream, and none of the performers are not interested in the question - why?It was just a job.Daily and routine.Disciplined employees of the great Reich sincerely tried to find the best solution for the optimization of labor and production.Can we call a good performance of employment duties the Holocaust?Maybe.Anyway, the moral aspect of this work is not exactly worried about those who served.

immoral.Immorality was built in the absolute, lovingly cherished pseudo-puritanical "morality" of the whole society, from promoters, deputies, generals to ordinary executors of genocide, immorality, as the state ideology - that's probably the main reason for the Holocaust.
