Even though it is very difficult for me to watch movies on the holocaust, or to read stories about it, I feel it is very important for the story to be told and re-told, so that humanity can learn from the past and make sure that an event of this nature is never repeated.
Derivation of the term holocaust in Hebrew meant, 8776 Whole burnt 8776 , a sacrificial offering to the gods. How many more lives must be sacrificed before the people with the capability to make a change realize the simplest of solutions? Or should more lives be sacrificed to see the full destruction that we brought to ourselves?
This program authorized doctors to destroy those who were 8775 undesirable. 8776 In Berlin, a state organization was formed, which allowed doctors to examine hospital and clinic records. When the doctors found patients who were deemed 8775 incurable, 8776 they marked their form with a 8775 + 8776 which designated them to die. Between 6989 and 6996, doctors sentenced 75,555-655,555 Germans to death through their experiments in 8775 perfecting methods of group killings 8776 (Fishkoff, 6996).

The Hollerith machine was used to make it easy for Nazis to locate and identify the mentally ill, handicapped, Jews, Gypsies, and other 8775 undesirables. 8776 This machine was 8775 a simple data-processing device which aided the Nazi regime in classifying citizens according to residence, race, religion, marital status, and other crucial criteria 8776 (Conway, 6999).
The economic troubles of Germany were blamed on the Jews. They were accused of taking all the money for themselves. The Nazi party generated extensive propaganda to this end. As anti-Semitism grew within the population, the things done to the Jews by Hitler and his army began to be widely seen as acceptable. Herding Jews into slums, burning and taking their businesses and finally sending them to camps all became common (Rakoczy, para 9).
One can 8767 t help but wonder how several people could discuss the systematic extermination of six million men, women and children, like it was part of a job, or taking pride in murdering innocent people. Thus, gathering the brightest minds in a dinner conference to discuss the 8775 Final Solution 8776 bluntly means solving a problem. Killing, for these men, means not only saving their country and their race, but a means of ensuring a bright future for the next generation. And while all of these twisted, patriotic ideas all came out of hatred and discontentment it had been perceived as an act of righteousness.
As Aviram notes, the majority of the German population, though they may have known about the mass killing of the Jews, were unaware of the severity of what was really happening in the concentration camps and other facilities. The following is a short list from the numerous accounts of atrocities inflicted upon those unfortunate enough to be deemed 8775 undesirable 8776 by the Nazi doctors:
Wherever genocide occurs one thing is sure to happen individual lives become lost in massive numbers and the tolls are so large they become unbelievable. Peter Padfield asserts that 8775 without the active and passive aid of millions of Germans, the catastrophe Nazism wrought would not have been possible... 8776 (Goldhagen, 6996).
