In his attempt to create an absolute Nazi hegemony and New Order in Europe based on the concept of racial hygiene, Hitler and his devoted Nazi’s began a deadly conquest around Europe consisting of Hitler’s goal of seizing and conquering land for the Aryans and mass murder and extermination of non-Aryan people.In the 1930’s, Hitler and his Nazi regime led a campaign of propaganda spreading lies about the Jews.As the so-called “Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda” of the Nazi party, Josef Goebbels created a negative image of the Jewish people and blamed them for the economic and social problems of Germany and the world.With the intention of dehumanizing the Jews and naming them as an inferior race, Nazi propaganda successfully created widespread anti-Semitism which lay down the foundation to eliminate the rights and freedom of the Jews.Disclaimer: This work has been submitted by a student.
Opponents view each other as less than human and thus not deserving of moral consideration, and are treated as less than humans through subtle or overt acts or statements.
However, one of the most extreme efforts at dehumanizing the Jews was through the various experiments done by the Nazi’s.
Some of these experiments included: sun lamp, internal irrigation, hot bath, warming by body heat and freezing/hypothermia.
Purposely withholding a proper mean of transportation, the Nazis place the Jews on the same level as animals and therefore undermine the importance of Jewish existence.
To enclose the Jews in a transport meant for animals is to limit their freedom and further dehumanizing the Jews as well as belittling their self-esteem.
