Nazis and how the final solution came to be Although much debate still surrounds the issue, many would accept that the “Final Solution” (i.e., the gassing of Jews) had been determined once and for all by Hitler as of December 12, 1941…

The following paper will discuss this process of refinement. Gas vans employed the usage of poisonous cases to implement the ideology of mass murder of the Jews by the Germans. The initial slaughter of the Soviet Jews was carried out by shooting them individually. This method of slaughter or killing turned out to be inefficient and had certain negative outcomes. It not only proved as inefficient in murdering a large number of the Jews, but it also had devastating after-effects on the perpetrators. Problems such as alcoholism and psychological issues became common and widespread due to this method of murder. Himmler Heinrich, second in power to Adolf Hitler who led the breakthrough methods of employing “medicine” in the mass murder techniques and was also involved in the set up of the extermination camps, was himself a victim of the psychological after-effects caused by the shootings. He almost fainted at the sight of the 100 Jews being executed through shootings on the Russian front in 1941 (Nicholls 80, 117-118). These reasons urged and motivated them to experiment with other methods which were more effectual and could be performed in a more “humane” way causing lesser effects on the perpetrators. ...
The journey of the Jews was initiated from the train cars where they were crammed and transported first to Kolo and then to Powiercie. Trucks from the junction took the prisoners to Schlosslager. Prisoners took a bathe there and any valuable objects under their possession were taken by the Germans. Stripped groups of fifty to seventy men, women, and children were forcefully directed towards a ramp which led to deceptive signs “To the Washrooms.” From there, the prisoners were cramped into gas vans and even during or after the killings the vans drove to Waldlager. The dead bodies were buried in massive graves and the vans were then cleaned by Jewish prisoners specially appointed for this job. In spite of the effectual exhaust fumes that were used for the mass murders, the gas vans eventually reflected some short-comings. The vans were not spacious and the requirement for deaths in the East was increasing tremendously. Moreover, the burial pits used after the gas vans execution procedures did not fulfill the requirements for secrecy of the government. Better methods of getting rid of the corpses had to be formulated to carry out the mass execution of the Jews (Rubenstein and Roth 196-197). More than 150,000 Jews were executed using the carbon monoxide gas vans at Chelmno in 1942. After Chelmno, four other extermination camps were put up in 1942 at Sobibor, Treblinka, Belzec and by the end of 1942, Majdanek. The first three camps were successful in the mass murder of 600,000 Jews by using carbon monoxide gas as the killing agent (Nicholls 80). Operation Reinhard, which was the code-word for the secretive execution of the Polish Jews, was named after Reinhard Heydrich, one of the main

Holocaust is one of the finest examples that best explains how cruel hatred can be for a person or towards a group of people that belongs to a particular community or race. Moreover, Holocaust is one of the heartbreaking and catastrophic events in the history of the globe that occurred few decades ago, which defines the brutality of a man.
The Holocaust. When Did the Nazis Decide On The Final Solution?
The Final Solution represents the Nazi endeavour to kill every Jew within Germany as an approach of the Nazi regime, which culminated into the holocaust. In essence, the final solution symbolizes the Nazi resolve to exterminate Jews from Germany but does not necessarily refer to a formal declaration.
Awareness of one’s whole being occurs when one tries to assess and recall what he/she had become and then capable of deciding what he/she wanted to continue to become. This is what Erik Erikson had been fascinated about--studying the changes happening throughout the generation of man.
The Holocaust was essentially realized by the ascension into power of the dictator Adolf Hitler. This period witnessed a significant transformation of the mode of life of the Jews. It is imperative to highlight that the lifestyles of the Jews plummeted all across Europe.
Further, the success and failures of IMF are as well covered, and the influence IMF had on African nations notably Nigeria and Cameroon on the political and economic situations. The impact of IMF and the role it played in the two nations, the changes enacted due to IMF, and a comparative analysis of the supposed failure.
When it comes to explaining the Final Solution, Nazi anti-Jewish policy, logic becomes an even smaller share in the analysis. According to Norman Rich, German racial programs were carried out with "almost total disregard for political, military or economic consequences." Such policies "cannot be dismissed" as mere political opportunism, but "onlyas the policies of a fanatic ideologue."1 Some analysts go even further, seeing Nazi anti-Jewish policy not only as an irrational 'slideshow' of military expansion, but as its very basis:
Bonney’s mission was to seek and share the truth so that “others [may] face it.” Like Bonney, Clare Boothe Luce stayed in Europe for four months to record the perils brought by war.
On the other hand, Luce observed that men “decided to die
