How Did Hitler Torture The Jews?

Although Hitler was never known to directly torture or kill any Jews, it was under his command that Nazi Germany committed genocide and ended the lives of approximately six million Jewish people.



Before the outbreak of World War Two the Nazi's had already successfully exiled around 60,000 German Jews. However when Germany occupied Poland (home to around two million Jews) the issue of treatment and containment become apparent to the Nazi's. It was then decided to place all Polish Jews into ghettos and put to work in war factories.



In 1933 the first concentration camps were founded. Jewish people were transported in cramped, filthy conditions. Upon arrival prisoners were tattooed with a series of numbers so they could be I.D'd.

Many prisoners died within the walls of the concentration camps through various causes such as starvation, disease or execution within the gas chambers.

During their time at the camps prisoners would often find themselves being severely beaten or tortured at the hands of the SS. Prisoners were beaten with hard wooden sticks if they were failing to meet demands and any prisoners thought to be disobeying orders were swiftly tortured. A popular method consisted of securing the prisoners hands behind their backs and then suspending them causing the arms to bend far back and the shoulders to eventually dislocate.



As the war was coming to an end and Allied forces drew closer to Germany some camps began using prisoners for medical experiments, testing lethal medicines and even freezing prisoners.



By 1945 all concentration camps had been liberated. One American soldier said of the camps: "There our troops found sights, sounds, and stenches horrible beyond belief, cruelties so enormous as to be incomprehensible to the normal mind."

They were shot, burned and worked to death. The most effective was that they were put in rooms that resembled shower rooms but instead of water coming out of the shower heads, deadly gas came out and killed all inside.

He was responsible for killing millions of jews and other people who were different. He first letted the jews to get treated different and made them wear the star of david on them to let people know they were jewish. It was a long progress. Than they were made to go to this camp that they had to work. None were feed well and some were just sent to be killed. They were forced to make their own camps and they all have to cut all of their hair off when they entered. Families were sperated and many people lived in one are. At most thosands could live in an appartment as small as a house. They were forced to work if they didn't work they couldn't eat. Some people died from stravtions and sickness, etc. Others were killed in gas chambers. It is a very complicated

He did a lot but I think the worst thing he did was he told his soldiers to rape the women and when they were in labor he would tie there legs together. But I understand him being mad at the person who killed his mother but that is no excuse for doing that to all the jews.

I hope you know that "a Jew killed his mother was most likely one of the reasons that made him mad" is a theory not an actual fact.

Hitler did some barbaric acts to torture and kill the Jews. The German Army and even the Germans became deadly against the Jews. They began rounding up the Jews from the whole country. Tortured them, killed them, slaughtered them, killed them through firing squads. He also kept them in specially made concentration camps, where they were made to work all day, with no or little food and water. All this under extreme weather conditions. Millions of Jews were killed this way. It was the most drastic holocaust of the Jews ever.

The person who said Hitler was a great man is obviously naive & uneducated. I can't imagine anyone with a view such as that to be able to function in normal society. You should see a shrink. You're as screwed up and delusional as the Octo-mom is.
And since I doubt you know... The meanins for delusion are as follows...
1. An act or instance of deluding. 2. The state of being deluded. 3. A false belief or opinion: Delusions of grandeur. 4. Psychiatry. A fixed false belief that is resistant to reason or confrontation with actual fact: A paranoid delusion.

Hitler sent the Jews to concentration camps where they were forced to work and be separated from their families. Many of them were sent to the gas chambers where they were squeezed into small rooms and poisonous gas was released which killed them. Hitler also sent soldiers to raid the Jew's houses. All of their possessions were taken and sold and many houses were burnt down. In transportation to concentration camps, the prisoners were squeezed into cramped, crowded, infested boxcars with a bucket in the corner to "do their business. Many people died in the concentration camps, not just from the gas chambers but from diseases like typhoid and also starvation. Many jews were also made to dig their own graves. Barbaric is the right word.

The jewish docter tried to save hitlers mom but failed but that is no reason for him to kill all the jews.

Saying the "Jews tried to kill his mother" when you don't have appropriate information isn't the brightest idea. Before you make a comment, you may want to do some research. Everything, after all, is only a theory.

The most recognizable beginning to Hitler's announcement of hatred towards the Jews would be in his book Mein Kampf. As for how he carried out his persecution, with brutal intricacy and unrelenting pursuit. He, and his regime, were responsible for the mass genocide of millions of Jews and millions more from other races, creeds, and religions.

Actually, it wasn't that a Jewish man tried to save his mother. It was his shame over having his mother get pregnant with him while working for a Jewish family. The theory is that the Jewish man of the house had sex with Hitler's mother and so he lived with the shame of being half Jewish himself. It was his way of trying to kill off any reminder of his own origins. And it fit very well with the general anti-semitism of the time. He could get so many people to go along with his insane plan, because so many people already were anti-semites. This is what happens when prejudice isn't challenged and exposed for the craziness that it is.

Hitler used to (if were Jews) cut the breast of women so they couldn't feed their babies and the fathers he would make them dig a grave and when the are finished he would shoot them and they would fall in the grave.

If you go to youtube, and type in concentration camps you will see the horrible things he did. Let me just add this the first concentration camp was on Shark Island in Namibia Africa. We received the first atrocities under Hitlers generals/commanders. They later then used the ideas for the jews.
