Transcript

  • 1. The Holocaust
    21-5
  • 2. Hitler’s New Order
    The invasion of the Soviet Union was part of Hitler’s master plan for a European “New Order.” Hitler wanted to make the European continent into a single political and economic system.
    He planned to use as the Soviet Union as a resource supplier for Germans, while tens of millions of Russians would starve to death.
  • 3. Hitler’s “New Order”
    In 1941 Hitler ordered the destruction of Europe’s entire Jewish population. The Nazis called this program the Final Solution to the “Jewish question.”
    Heinrich Himmler would head the SS which headed the Final Solution. At first Jews were rounded up and shot in large groups, but that was inefficient so the Nazis turned to poison gas.
    At the Wannsee Conference Nazi officials set out a systematic plan for exterminating Jews in concentration camps.

    The Nazis moved Jews by the hundreds of thousands to concentration camps in Germany and Poland. Dachau and Buchenwald in Germany were two of the largest labor camps. In Poland the Germans built Treblinka and Auschwitz which were huge death camps in which people were systematically murdered.

  • 20. Resisting the Holocaust
    At first most Jews obeyed the orders of the SS. Many Jews started to form resistance groups in Jewish ghettos. Many countries offered support to Jews. After the Germans occupied Denmark, Danes helped some 7,000 Jews escape to neutral Sweden.
