well, hitler based everything on the bible. he was a very religious person. and in the bible, it said only a very few select of jews will go to heaven. and hitler wanted to “purify” the world. so he sought it to be his conquest, and fulfill the bible and kill all jews. as well as he had a hatred to them in personal matters i have not figured yet. i am currently reading Mein Kampf. The answer below mine is better. scratch that, it doesn’t really answer your question.
Anti-semitism was not invented by Hitler or the Nazis. There was a long tradition of it in Germany, going back to the middle ages. By the way, this is not a criticism of Germany, as the same was true of Poland, Russia, France, Spain, Britain and just about every European country you can name. This tends to be conveniently forgotten.In the exceptional circumstances of Germany in the 1920s and 1930s, the Jews became a convenient scapegoat. Hitler also thought they were behind Communism, which he hated. Hitler then took the persecution a stage further than most previous ones (there had been some pretty extreme stuff in the old days – burning Jews at the stake for example was common in the middle ages.)
This is one of those question where some people simply can’t stand the answer, but I think in order to better understand this issue, we should consider the expressed views of some key diplomats who were close to events at the time.Just consider the following: Joseph P. Kennedy, U.S. Ambassador to Britain during the years immediately preceding WW2 was the father of the famous American Kennedy dynasty. James Forrestal the first US Secretary of Defense (1947-1949) quotes him as saying “Chamberlain (the British Prime Minister) stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into the war”.yamaguchy.com/library/cikkek/forrestal.htmlCount Jerzy Potocki, the Polish Ambassador in Washington, in a report to the Polish Foreign Office in January 1939, is quoted approvingly by the highly respected British military historian Major-General JFC Fuller.Concerning public opinion in America he says:”Above all, propaganda here is entirely in Jewish handswhen bearing public ignorance in mind, their propaganda is so effective that people have no real knowledge of the true state of affairs in Europe It is interesting to observe that in this carefully thought-out campaign no reference at all is made to Soviet Russia.If that country is mentioned, it is referred to in a friendly manner and people are given the impression that Soviet Russia is part of the democratic group of countries Jewry was able not only to establish a dangerous centre in the New World for the dissemination of hatred and enmity, but it also succeeded in dividing the world into two warlike camps.President Roosevelt has been given the power.. to create huge reserves in armaments for a future war which the Jews are deliberately heading for.”bookfinder.com/dir/i/Decisive_Battles_of_the_Western_World_Vol._3-From_the_American_Civil_War_to_the_/030435869X/Hugh Wilson, the American Ambassador in Berlin until 1938, the year before the war broke out, found anti-Semitism in Germany ‘understandable’. This was because before the advent of the Nazis, “the stage, the press, medicine and law [were] crowded with Jews. Among the few with money to splurge, a high proportion [were] Jews. The leaders of the Bolshevist movement in Russia, a movement desperately feared in Germany, were Jews. One could feel the spreading resentment and hatred.”Also, In a book unexpectedly published by Princeton University Press in 1984, Sarah Gordon says:Jews were never a large percentage of the total German population; at no time did they exceed 1% of the population during the years 1871-1933.’But she adds ‘Jews were overrepresented in business, commerce, and public and private service.. They were especially visible in private banking in Berlin, which in 1923 had 150 private Jewish banks, as opposed to only 11 private non-Jewish banks.They owned 41% of iron and scrap iron firms and 57% of other metal businesses.Jews were very active in the stock market, particularly in Berlin, where in 1928 they comprised 80% of the leading members of the stock exchange.By 1933, when the Nazis began eliminating Jews from prominent positions, 85% of the brokers on the Berlin Stock exchange were dismissed because of this Jewish influence on German lives.amazon.co.uk/Hitler-Germans-Jewish-Question-Gordon/dp/0691101620Edgar Mowrer, Berlin correspondent for the Chicago Daily News, wrote:No one who lived through the period from 1919 to 1926 is likely to forget the sexual promiscuity that prevailed.. Throughout a town like Berlin, hotels and pensions made vast fortunes by letting rooms by the hour or day to baggageless, unregistered guests. Hundreds of cabarets, pleasure resorts and the like served for purposes of getting acquainted and acquiring the proper mood..’ (pp. 153-4). Bryant describes throngs of child prostitutes outside the doors of the great Berlin hotels and restaurants. He adds ‘Most of them (the night clubs and vice-resorts) were owned and managed by Jews.There really are numerous “reasons” (if we can call them that) for a rising tide of anti-semitism in Nazi Germany.Of course anti-semitism can never be justified, just as anti-christian, or anti-Germanism or even anti-islamism can ever be justified.Hope this helps.Peace be upon you.
The ‘root cause’ is generally recorded to have been ‘the nature of German nationalism’. Nationalism reached Germany late in the wake of Napoleon 1815 on. As such it was ‘hostile’, a ‘reaction’ to Napoleon, ‘military’, and soon became ‘racist’ (without definite borders and in many mini states, the Germans defined their nation as a ‘race’ ( really an ethnic group) instead of a place).Angry and hostile they next decided their ‘race’ was superior to all others, and some races (the ones they saw as their biggest enemies) were inferior or ‘sub-human’. They imagined the Jews who they had always blamed for everything as scapegoats, the Slavs who held territory they wanted, and wandering ‘Gypsies’ (a threat to order) in the ‘sub-human’ category. During the rest of the 1800’s despite uniting, democracy, liberalism, enlightenment, were all defeated in Germany and it’s nationalism became ever more right wing and hateful.By 1880-1895 the idea of blond Aryan ‘supermen’ battling a world conspiracy of Jews, Gypsies, democrats, the swastika, and the ‘Jewish Problem’ (getting rid of all Jews) already existed in right wing German nationalist hate speech, hate propaganda. Hitler was born 1889 and soaked it up as a loner teenager and young man. Then the Jews were wrongly blamed for losing WWI 1918 (on top of everything else). Hitler found the right wing Nazi’s 1919 and became their leader 1920/21 packaging the whole hate fantasy into what would become the reality of Nazi Germany 1932-45.
