Why did Hitler hate the Jews so much ?

Everyone knows he had a pathological hatred of Jews, and so did Goebbels, but has anyone identified exactly why ?      Early in his life I think Hitler's mother was treated by a Jewish doctor when she was dying and I think later in the 1930's he spared him from persecution (?)

 

And were members of the SS who went on to administer the concentration camps and extermination camps already haters of Jews or were they indoctrinated by the Nazi party ?  

I've been looking into the suppression and liquidation of the Warsaw ghetto revolt of April 1943 and trying to understand the mentality of the average SS 'soldier' involved.  I guess they were young, had known nothing else and were an indoctrinated product of the Nazi state ?

Update:

" my guess is he didn't and that is just something they like to say "

-- his hatred is evident in Mein Kampf and also in his last will and testament recorded  by one of his secretaries Traudl Jung in April 1945.

    Yes exactly why has been identified ever since Hitler was alive. 

    Like about 25% of Germans of the time Hitler believed in a false 'conspiracy theory' that Jews secretly controlled the world, caused Germany to lose WWI, murdered babies,were evil, kept Germans down and Hitler out of art school blah, blah. And also that the German people were genetic 'supermen' (higher humans than everyone else) destined to kill the Jews and replace them running the world with a Nazi German super dictatorship.

    No kidding this is exactly what he believed, as did 25% of Germans, but Hitler also believed it fanatically as he was a fanatic a type of cult leader. Once he got in power because of the Great Depression he carried out his fanatic fantasy conspiracy theory...for real...murdering 6 million Jews, starting WWII, trying to take over the world, and in total causing 50 million deaths for the WWII era.   

    Source(s): Lucy Dawidowicz in her Great book 'War Against the Jews' 1st 3 chapters explains the Hitler-German conspiracy theory that made Hitler and 3rd Reich torture/ murder Jews.

    Dave (1465) - do re-read your answer. You are seriously failing to make sense - as of course anyone attempting to defend Hitler against charges of antisemitism will inevitably do.

    Here is one gem - you say:

    "The German Jews actually led reasonably normal lives until around 1938 - considering that they were discriminated against. But they more or less took that in stride, as they explained in their letter to the US Embassy against the Zionists in 1933."

    You have the German Jews (what? all of them?) explaining that they 'lead reasonably normal lives' until 'around 1938' in a letter WRITTEN IN 1933. In MARCH. Just after Hitler had seized power.

    Do you see the problem there?

    Quite apart from claiming that a single letter from a single group (Jewish veterans) in 1933 proves that all theJews in Germany had 'reasonably normal lives' as late as 1938 - in spite of the Civil Service Act (April, 1933) banning them from the professions, and all the antisemtic legislation that followed - including the Nuremberg Laws of 1935 which stripped them of their civil rights - you haven't even read the letter properly.

    This is not surprising as you habitually misread texts - see your ridiculous versions of the Balfour Declaration, the Wannsee Protocols et al - but it does tend to rob your statements of all credibility.

    See this quote from the letter, with your interpolations:

    "Mistreatments and excesses have indeed occurred, and we are far from glossing these over. But this is hardly avoidable in any kind of revolution (Jewish vs Christian). We attach great significance to the fact that these authorities (Zionists), where it was at all possible to interfere, have done so against outrages that have come to our knowledge."

    A Jewish vs Christian revolution? Rubbish, double rubbish with a side-order of rubbish to go. They mean the revolution in which Hitler has just seized power.

    The next sentence says that the writers of the letter believe that the 'authorities' that is the police etc now acting on Hitler's orders NOT the 'Zionists' - and it is worth pointing out that the letter does not mention the word Zionists  - have 'interfered' to stop the 'outrages' (vicous attacks on Jews and trade unionists - reported in the April 1933 article in The Guardian which got the paper banned in Germany for telling the truth) where they could. This isn't true, but the Veterans wanted it be true, and perhaps did beleive it.

    You see. You didn't understand a text translated into reasonably plain English.

    I won't deal with all your nonsense because no one would bother to read it. But - you say:

    "Hitler's antisemitism was no worse than anyone else's, including Britain and the United States. During the period in question, discrimination against Jews was commonplace in just about every country."

    Dave - yes there was discrimination - in the US and Britain - however you really should learn the difference between being refused membership of the local golf club (bad enough - it cut you off from the chance to make business contacts, but not fatal) and having to sit in your own house and listen to young men marching by singing "When Jewish blood spurts from the knife..." or taking your children past a notice outside a public park reading "No Dogs. No Jews" or knowing that the country's dictator had built his political programme on the premise that "Jews are Our Misfortune."

    Yes Hitler's antisemitism was indescribably worse than anyone else's - it led to the Warsaw Ghetto, to Auschwitcz, Theresienstadt, to the massacres of Babi Yar, to Operation Harvest Festival and six million murders.

    Have a bit of sense, do.

    Hitler's antisemitism was no worse than anyone else's, including Britain and the United States. During the period in question, discrimination against Jews was commonplace in just about every country.

    What sets Hitler apart is mainly the hate campaign perpetrated by the Zionists once Hitler was appointed Chancellor.

    The "stab-in-the-back myth" was both true and not true, depending on your understanding of the difference between Zionism and Judaism - most people don't understand the difference and so they get confused easily.

    Zionism is not the same as Judaism - Zionism is a political movement and Judaism pertains to the cultural/religious aspect. To quote Sleepy Joe Biden, "You don't have to be a Jew to be a Zionist - I am a Zionist."

    And this is the difference - and an important one at that.

    Being political, Zionism associates itself with Judaism, mostly as a matter of convenience - they use the Jews as shields to hide behind so that they can ply their political corruption and then yell "antisemitic" when anyone criticizes them for it.

    This is the concept behind the "stab-in-the-back myth". It was Zionism that caused Germany's defeat in WW1 when they made a deal to bring the United States into the war on Britain's side in exchange for the rights to Palestine - culminating in the Balfour Declaration.

    Many of the Zionists that pulled this had immigrated from Germany to America, and thus the debate is created over it being an actual "stab-in-the-back". Technically, they were Americans at the time, but they came from Germany.

    In 1933, Hitler was appointed Chancellor on Jan 30. On March 24 (just 53 days later) Zionism declared war on Germany and by Aug 6, they had accused him of exterminating Jews.

    This nonsense sounds remarkably similar to the way Democrats had been treating Donald Trump for the entire 4 years (and more) he was in office, complete with false accusations of Russia collusion, "investigating a political opponent" - a lie that did expose Biden't Quid Pro Quo. This Quid Pro Quo stemmed from Biden's attempt to shake down the Ukrainian government to get them to stop investigating his corrupt son. It was Ukraine's corruption that Trump was looking into, not Biden's corruption. Old "bucket-mouth" Biden exposed himself (politically - although on a sexual level, we'll just...never mind).

    The German Jews who were victimized were against the Zionists and thus, were "taken care of" accordingly. It wasn't "gas chambers" - the gas chamber claims were made by supporters of Zionism to exploit sympathy that fueled their agenda.

    It was typhus and other disease epidemics that killed so many Jews. But "disease" doesn't sound as dramatic as "extermination". "Extermination" actually goes back to around 1900 when the Zionists were publishing propaganda about "6 million Jews being threatened with extermination" - through articles that were common during the many years they were published.

    And as the quote by Vladimir Lenin goes, "tell a lie often enough becomes the truth." The world believed it because there was little or no other sources of news available but newspapers and people read about it over and over - it was indoctrinated into them.

    Thus, by the time the accusation of exterminating Jews came out against Hitler after less than 7 months as Chancellor, it resonated with everyone who, by this time, had been conned into supporting the Jews.

    No one thought of asking how Hitler could plan, finance, and carry out such an exquisite operation in only 7 months and they had no reason to doubt it.

    The Zionists provoked Hitler until he developed a bad taste for all Jews. The German Jews actually led reasonably normal lives until around 1938 - considering that they were discriminated against. But they more or less took that in stride, as they explained in their letter to the US Embassy against the Zionists in 1933:

    "We became aware of the propaganda in your country about alleged cruelties against the Jews in Germany. We, therefore, consider it our duty, not only in our own interests as German patriots but also for the sake of truth, to comment on these incidents.

    (Note that they used the word "alleged" - as in saying "not true".)

    "Mistreatments and excesses have indeed occurred, and we are far from glossing these over. But this is hardly avoidable in any kind of revolution (Jewish vs Christian). We attach great significance to the fact that these authorities (Zionists), where it was at all possible to interfere, have done so against outrages that have come to our knowledge.

    "In all cases, these deeds were committed by irresponsible elements (Zionists) who kept in hiding. We know that the (German or American - perhaps both) government and all leading authorities most strongly disapprove of the violations that occurred."

    These German Jews are protesting against the Zionists and defending the German government (for which they were thrown under the bus for their efforts).

    the Stab in the Back Myth

    his mother was a cleaner for a Jewish Family the Jews like me don't believe he could paint so refused his drawings

    he envied Officers in the German army who were Jewish and By 1919 he wanted this

    Hitler's Conversation with Josef Hell, 1922When Hell asked Hitler what he intended doing if he ever had full freedom of action against the Jews, his response was: If I am ever really in power, the destruction of the Jews will be my first and most important job. As soon as I have power, I shall have gallows after gallows erected, for example, in Munich on the Marienplatz-as many of them as traffic allows. Then the Jews will be hanged one after another, and they will stay hanging until they stink. They will stay hanging as long as hygienically possible. As soon as they are untied, then the next group will follow and that will continue until the last Jew in Munich is exterminated. Exactly the same procedure will be followed in other cities until Germany is cleansed of the last Jew!" (quoted in John Toland, Adolf Hitler. London: Book Club Associates, 1977, p.116)

    We don't know the origins of Hitler's anti-semitism.  There's been speculation about supposed biographical incidents where a Jewish person did him wrong, or he thought they did him wrong, and how that supposedly inspired his hatred of Jews.  But none of that has been substantiated.

    Because Jews betrayed Germany which caused them to lose WW1. 

    You should read The Greatest Story NEVER told which will explain exactly what the Jews did to Germany and how they crippled their economy so that a barrel load of money was required to buy a loaf of bread.
