    He did hate Jews For being enemies of the State, the same reason Japanese were put in concentration camps in USA. However he also did not kill any Jews. New York times dated may 20, 1945 reported liberation of 6 million Jewish 'slaves' working in hidden factories. all of them were well fed and alive.

    In November 1918 German armies were still French and Belgian territory, Berlin remained 450 miles from the nearest front, and the German armies were in good battle order. No Allied army had penetrated the western German frontier, and on the Eastern Front, Germany had already won the war against Russia, concluded with the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. In the West, Germany had come close to winning the war with the Spring Offensive and was within 12 miles of Paris. – Quote of Adolph Hitler “when out of the cool nights the Allied soldiers already seemed to hear the dull rumble of the advancing storm units of the German army, and with eyes fixed in fear and trepidation awaited the approaching judgment, suddenly a flaming red light arose in Germany, casting its glow into the last shell-hole of the enemy front: at the very moment when the German divisions were receiving their last instructions for the great attack, the general strike broke out in Germany in all of its armaments factories thus depriving the German army of crucial arms and ammunitions. Thousands of German soldiers had to pay for this with their blood”. The instigators of this vilest of all scoundrel tricks of these strikes by Unions in armaments factories were Jews.

    The Imperial Naval Command in Kiel under Admiral Franz von Hipper, planned to dispatch the fleet for a Final battle against the British Navy in the English Channel. The sailors revolt started on the Schillig Roads off Wilhelmshaven, where the German fleet had anchored in expectation of a planned battle. During the night from 29 to 30 October 1918 some Jewish crews refused to obey orders. On board of three ships from the Third Navy Squadron some Jewish sailors refused to lift anchor. On board of the battle ships from the First Navy Squadron SMS "Thüringen“ and "Helgoland" outright mutiny and sabotage occurred. As of 4 November delegations of the sailors scattered out to all larger cities in the country with the cry of 'freedom, beauty, and dignity'. Already by 7 November the revolution had seized all larger coastal cities as well as Hanover, Brunswick, Frankfurt and Munich. In Munich a Workers' and Soldiers' Council forced the last King of Bavaria, Ludwig III, to abdicate. And war was over. 9th November, 1918 Germany surrendered and German King Kaiser Wilhelm II was abdicated. “Freedom, Beauty and dignity are secret words of Jewish secret Society- Freemasons.

    Under the World War 2 Treaty of Versailles, Jewish International Bankers cut Germany in several pieces and gifted it to other nations. A piece of Germany - Alsace-Lorraine was gifted to France, A piece of Germany Saar Region of Coal mines was forcibly brought under French Protectorate, a piece of Germany – Eupen, Malmedy, Moresńet, and St. Vith was gifted to Belgium, a piece of Germany - Northern Schleswig was gifted to Denmark, pieces of Germany - Hultschin and Opava was gifted to Czechoslovakia, a pieces of Germany - West Prussia, Danzig, Posen and Upper Silesia was gifted to Poland, several pieces of Germany – Rhineland and Memel were brought under league of Nations and people of these regions were to vote in future, whether they want to remain in Germany or not. League of Nations also took control of land won by Germany under treaty of Brest-Litovsk. Some of this land was gifted to Poland and some made into new states of Estonia, Lithuania and Latavia.

    The American President, Woodrow Wilson, was advised at Versailles War Conference by Jew Bernard Baruch, The British Prime Minister, Lloyd George, was "advised" by Alfred Milner, Rothschild employee, and Jew Sir Phillip Sassoon, The French leader, Georges Clemenceau, was "advised" by Jew Georges Mandel, the interpreter was another Jew named Mantoux; the Military Adviser Jew called Kish.

    The earliest firm evidence of Hitler's antisemitism dates from 1916, when Hitler was aged 27, so stories about early experiences in his life should be treated with caution.

    Hitler believed that the Jews were involved in a great conspiracy to control the wealth of Europe and to dominate and destroy the German or Aryan people. Whether that belief was the basis for his hatred or was a result of it is not something I think can be determined.


    The reasons most commonly given are that Hitler believed that the Jews:

    Were Communists (and that Communism was a Jewish political philosphy).

    Had deliberately caused Germany to lose World War 1 by wrecking the home front in Germany itself.

    Had caused the Great Depression.

    He believed a bizarre conspiracy that claimed that the Jews were planning to dominate the world.

    The first of these views - of the Jews as Communists - was also widespread in many other countries, including Britain and the U.S. However, most people elsewhere seem to have taken this with a pinch of salt and certainly didn't get so worked up about it.

    As for the conspiracy theory that the Jews were trying to dominate the world, Yehuda Bauer summarizes it neatly as follows:

    "The basic motivation [of the Holocaust] was purely ideological, rooted in an illusionary world of Nazi imagination, where an international Jewish conspiracy to control the world was opposed to a parallel Aryan quest. No genocide to date had been based so completely on myths, on hallucinations, on abstract, nonpragmatic ideology - which was then executed by very rational, pragmatic means."

    Yehuda Bauer, Rethinking the Holocaust, New Haven, Conn.: Yale University Press, 2002, p.48. (Quoted in Wikipedia article on the Holocaust, accessed 31 March 2009).

    Obviously, there is something nutty about such notions, but there is no evidence that Hitler was clinically insane.


    In the interwar period (1918-1939) it was perfectly acceptable to express racist, ethnic, religious and cultural prejudice loud and clear, both in Europe and the U.S. Most German Jews did not take the Nazis' antisemitism particularly seriously before 1933. Almost none had made any practical arrangements in advance to leave the country, for example.

    Hitler's Jew-baiting was not particularly popular outside the beer-halls of Bavaria and a few other places and was not the vote-catcher that the above answer claims.

    He wasn't 1/4 Jewish or "insane". It was universally believed that Jews sabotaged the German war machine during WWI, since Great Britain promised to create the country of Israel if they would have won the war (the German allies the Turks controlled that land). He also believed that Jews were genetically predisposed to hurt civilization rather than bring it up. Jews created Communism for example as well the idea that all races are equal, something the Nazis strongly opposed due to scientific evidence to the contrary. The Holocaust wasn't Hitler's decision but Heinrich Himmler's and Reynhard Heidrich's.

    Hitler was only one in a long line of anti-semites, a line that goes back to the Roman Empire in the 4th century. It has been going on since history began and many countries had programmes in which jews were victimised.In the mid 14th century they were blamed for spreading the Black death by poisoning wells. In many European countries they have been a persecuted race and possibly Stalin was as guilty as Hitler of such slaughter. Even in the USA both Henry Ford and Lindbergh expressed anti semitic statements. Of course all Muslims would be happy to see Judaism removed from the face of the earth. If you consult a well-known online encyclopedia on this subject you will get more information.

    Incidentally, I have no religious affiliations being an agnostic.

    Hitler took advantage of the difficult situation in Germany after World War I, and accused the Jews of the difficult economic situation that was in germany in order to promote his political agenda in order to become Chancellor of Germany. Even after he became Chancellor he continued to use Jews as an excuse to grow his popularity. Hitler managed to unite a broken nation by hating Jews. As anti-Semitic (and probably mentally ill) he decided on the "final solution" that the had caused the holocaust.

    He hated them because he thought that they got all the good jobs and the money, and as Germany was in a poor economic state as it was, he didn't think it was fair that people that weren't native to Germany should be the ones who got the money. He also disliked any person who wasn't of his race and thought that the perfect race of people was blonde haired and blue eyed even though he was a brunette.

    He might have just wanted for "his" people to get the money from his country and he thought that the Jews didn't deserve to have it and that they were below him.

    Hope I answered your question XD

    hitler was not 1/4 Jewish. That is just an urban legend.

    And it doesn't require "provocation" for a psychopath to lash out at others.

    the usa have 1,4 % jews, but this small percentage has a large influence on us foreign politics and this small percentage also has a significantly higher average household income.

    then you shouldn't forget that the powerful banks like goldman sachs, Lehman Brothers etc. and also the founders of the federal reserve (which is not "federal", it was founded as private bank) have jewish roots. also hollywood is jewish dominated.

    from this facts, hitler brewed his lunatic ideology.

    Maybe a jew or some jews just did something to really annoy him and it festered over the years and he eventually just hated all of them. But, he was just crazy and power hungry enough to actually go out and kill as much as he could.. No one really knows why. What a weirdo..

    In addition to the other answers, Hitler also considered himself a devout Catholic. He justified killing Jews in part as doing God's work.
