"In Germany, the Nazis first came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, but I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me...By that time there was no one to speak up for anyone."

"In respect of the Jewish Question, the Führer has decided to make a clean sweep. He prophesied to the Jews that if they again brought about a world war, they would experience their annihilation in it. That wasn't just a catch-word. The world war is here, and the annihilation of Jewry must be the necessary consequence."

Joseph Goebbels: Diary entry, December 12, 1941

Important Players in the Holocaust

ADOLF HITLER

Adolf Hitler Facts about the man who tried to conquer

FACT: With support from the nationalists, Hitler gained a majority at the last 'democratic' elections held in Germany on 5 March 1933 and with cynical skill he used the whole gamut of persuasion, propaganda, terror and intimidation to secure his hold on power.


Rudolf Hess

Hitler's #3 Man

Rudolf Hess

FACT: On A Mission To England, Hess also displayed signs of mental instability to his British captors and they concluded he was half mad and represented only himself. Churchill, realizing this, and somewhat infuriated by his statements, ordered Hess to be imprisoned for the duration and treated like any high ranking POW.


THE DOCTOR OF DEATH:

"A Doctor"     Josef Mengele: The Doctor of Death
 

FACT: Josef Mengele fed his legend by dramatizing murderous policies, such as his drawing a line on the wall of the children's block between 150 and 156 centimeters (about 5 feet or 5 feet 2 inches) from the floor, and sending those whose heads could not reach the line to the gas chamber.


Adolf Eichmann

THE TRIAL

Adolf Eichmann

FACT: The Wannsee Conference of 20 January 1942 consolidated Eichmann's position as the 'Jewish specialist' of the RSHA and Heydrich now formally entrusted him with implementing the 'Final Solution'.


Oscar Schindler
Schindler During the Second World War

The Story of OSCAR SCHINDLER

FACT: At the point when his ambitions have been realized and he could walk away from the war a rich man while "his Jews" die in Plazow and Auschwitz, Oscar Schindler desperately spends every penny he has bribing and paying off Nazi officials to protect and save his Jews. Later accounts have revealed that Schindler spent something like 4 million German marks keeping his Jews out of the death camps - an enormous sum of money for those times.


Joseph Goebbels

Master Propagandist

FACT: On 10 May 1933 he staged the great ritual 'burning of the books' in Berlin, where the works of Jewish, Marxist and other 'subversive' authors were publicly burned in huge bonfires.


Heinrich Himmler

"COMBATTING THE GYPSY NUISANCE"

Encarta Biography

FACT: In a speech to 100 SS generals, Himmler spoke of the extermination of Jews. His handwritten note uses the euphemism "Judenevakuierung", meaning evacuation of the Jews. However, in sound recordings of the speech, Himmler defined "evacuation" as "extermination."


Eva Braun

Mistress To A Monster

FACT: She entered Hitler's household in 1936, but they were married just a few days before their double suicide

St. Maximilian Kolbe Priest gives his life for another

The Saint From Auschwitz

FACT: Maximilian Kolbe was a Polish priest who died as prisoner 16770 in Auschwitz-Birkenau, 1941 August 14. When a prisoner escaped from the camp, the Nazis selected 10 others to be killed by starvation in reprisal for the escape. One of the 10 selected to die, Franciszek Gajowniczek, began to cry: My wife! My children! I will never see them again! At this St. Maximilian stepped forward and asked to die in his place. His request was granted ...

Dachau -- Prisoner Badges: Dachau was the first concentration camp established by the Nazis. Hundreds of prisoners were subjected to cruel, mutilating, and pointless medical experiments.

FACT: Auschwitz-Birkenau became the killing centre where the largest numbers of European Jews were killed. After an experimental gassing there in September 1941 of 850 malnourished and ill  prisoners, mass murder became a daily routine.  By mid 1942, mass gassing of Jews using Zyklon-B began at Auschwitz , where extermination was conducted on an industrial scale with some estimates running as high as three million persons eventually killed through gassing, starvation, disease, shooting, and burning.

The idea that the Holocaust represents 11 million lives that abruptly ended is a difficult concept, but this is an important point. The Holocaust was the extermination of people not for who they were but for what they were. Groups such as handicaps, Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, Catholics, Poles, Soviet prisoners of war, political dissidents and others were persecuted by the Nazis because of their religious/political beliefs, physical defects, or failure to fall into the "Aryan" ideal
