Picture
The picture above shows an illustration found in a children's book.  The headlines say "Jews are our misfortune" and "How the Jew cheats."
Germany, 1936  
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
See more examples of Hitler's Propaganda posters under "Videos, Links and Web Pages"

Hitler relied on propaganda in order to get his word out about what he thought the Germans should believe.  He saturated society with images and captions telling how the Jewish  people were bad and responsible for the downfall of Germany.  He also used propaganda to influence Germans to enlist in his armies and later to demand participation by all, including children, in working to gain world dominance and be able to build his "perfect race."

Propaganda is tricking someone into thinking something that isnt true. The three men in the black arnt even looking at the Jewish peopole and probably talking about them. The affects of propaganda are they make someone think something is true when it really isnt true. ther has been many ways that people showed propaganda and Hitler was one that succeded.

Propaganda is generally politically motivated media intended to influence your political ideas. The picture seems to portray the Jewish men as old and kinda scary looking. It looks like they may even be plotting something. Little kids would probably be scared by this.

Q1:Propoganda is communication intended to influence a community toward a certain cause or position.
Q2: A modern day example of propoganda would be in the media during election years. Many canidates up for election will run ads on tv to make viewers belive what they say and not vote for the canadate they are running against.
Q3: Propaganda has influenced me as in my previous example when it comes to voting. It is funny you watch Fox News and they say one thing and then you watch MSNBC and they say the ecact opposite. I feel propoganda affects everyone in everyday life and most of the time one doesnt even notice it or how it affected them.

propaganda is organized dissemination of information, allegations, etc, to assist or damage the cause of a government, movement, etc
2.such information, allegations, etc. in other words the spreading of false things
yes propaganda has spread in schools
THE PICTURE SHOWS that on the Bord what Jewish people did and whats wrong with them

1. According to the information found on Dictionary.com the definition of propaganda is information that is disseminated to help or harm a person, group, a nation, a movement, or other institution. This information can be true or false; can consist of ideas, or rumors. The dissemination of the information is deliberate (Dictionary.com, n.d).
2. Modern examples of propaganda exist in the biases that are show by the new reports. Depending on which political affiliation that news station are associated with information is slant in such a way as to show the favored political party in a good light and the unfavorable political party in a bad light. No longer exist the unbiased reporting of the news. No longer exist the presentation of the facts to the audience so they may interpret them. Instead the news is reported with just enough information to sensationalize, horrify and scare the audience into jumping to the conclusion that the media wants. This leads the public to support the policies and ideas that the political leader wants with little truthful information to warrant such support.
3. The connection that can be made between the three black birds and the three Jewish men is the color black. The color represents death and by showing both the birds and the men as black unconsciously influence the viewer to associate both with death. Therefore the connection is made in the viewers mine that the Jewish men will bring death. It is the use of the correlation that further supports Hitler’s claim that the Jews will be the down fall and the death of Germany.

What is propaganda?

Propaganda is a deliberate distortion, misrepresentation or outright lie about a person, group, ethnic group, concept, etc. The sole goal of propaganda is to make that object more popular or to demonize or even dehumanize the object. For example, much of the propaganda of the Nazi regime was aimed at making the Jews seem more like vermin than humans. This way, the German people would have no problem "eliminating the problem."

What types of modern day examples of propaganda can you cite?

A quick glance at virtually any of the news channels on cable will show great examples of propaganda. For example, the word "insurgent" is used instead of "terrorist" because insurgents don't seem nearly as threatening as terrorists, especially to the news audiences that still remember 9/11. Watch how conservatives are portrayed on CNN or MSNBC and take note of the distortions and outright lies and you'll likely be quite angry after just a half-hour. And it's not much better on Fox News regarding liberals (excuse me, I forgot the new word is "progressive"). Watch closely how the terms are constantly changed when a bad connotation is there. People who favored abortion became "pro-choice" and people who are against it became "pro-life." Early 20th century "progressives" became "liberals" in the 1960s only to become "progressives" again because the labels pick up such bad connotations. Propaganda is around us all the time and it's up to us to learn to think critically and question the agenda at play.


What are the effects of propaganda?

Well-designed, subtle, pervasive propaganda can be incredibly effective. A fantastic example is the way the Nazis were able to systematically exterminate millions of Jews because the German people considered them no better than vermin.

Well-made and well-implemented propaganda can actually make people act against their better reason or even their own self-interest. Any suicide bomber (or better named...homicide bomber) is a walking example of someone that has completely surrendered reason to the impact of a steady diet of propaganda. Anyone that is willing to blow themselves up for a 50/50 chance at killing someone with the "wrong" kind of beliefs has definitely given up their own self-interest or has bought 100% into the idea of rewards on another plane.

Parent response,

Q#1: Propaganda is the selling of an idea or information through the display of public information.
Q#2: Internet, TV, Newspaper, books, Billboards, magazines, mail, radio, store and business signs to the door to door salesman, the friendly yellow cab that reminds you it is cheaper to take a cab than risks a DUI, friends, family, neighbors and even strangers all cause us to think twice about what it is they have to offer and how it will benefit us if we choose their product or service.
Q#3: Propaganda has essentially saturated our lives to the point that our ability to think for ourselves is sometimes controlled by it automatically. From the clothing, shoes, jewelry, perfume and makeup to the type of car we drive, the foods we eat, the gas stations we fill our tanks at, to the grocery store we shop at, to the cell phone service we use or the car insurance we choose. The list goes on and on and on. During the Hitler days propaganda was used to carry out an agenda that was conceived by Hitler and any different thought to the contrary was considered a crime and punishable by death. Unlike the days when Hitler ruled, we have a choice to choose for ourselves what we think is right and in our best interest without having to fear any repercussion.

Propaganda is something that tells people about other things in their own way, like a belief. One example of propaganda is when the President of North Korea tells his people that they are the best, and they get the best. He makes them think that they want to stay in North Korea and never leave. In the dictionary, it is described as information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc. This is exactly what Hitler did to the Jews.

The effect propaganda has in the World is enourmous! They can teach people and children especially to hate Jews or other races, just like Hitler did. It can tell them something that is definitely not true. They would literally be living a lie. However, it doesn't always make people hate someone or something. Hitler used propaganda to have Germans vote for him to be the German dictator. Sometimes, propaganda is used to enlarge companies and their product prices. Most commercials contain numerous amounts of propaganda.

Obviously, in whatever way, propaganda is never good foor the person/people it's being used on.....

We see various example of propaganda in virtually everything we see on tv. . . advertisements show propaganda designed to get us to purchase goods and/or services, television shows and movies often show a bias towards or against one belief or another.

The ultimate effects of progaganda is to get us to only see one side of an issue. Propaganda seeks to only give us certain, slanted information in order to change our beliefs or values. It's very important, therefore, for us to seek a complete set of information regarding any issue or belief so that we have a balanced viewpoint.

Ok, so Mrs.Gamez. This is for my what I have learned post that I did not submit. I learned that even with all the power in World War Two that HItler had, he did not have enough supplies to build the incredible super tank, such as the British tried to do. The Landkruezer P. 1000 Ratte was unsucessful.It didn't even make it into battle and was uncomplete in it's operation and did not even finish being built. Also, the tanks wouldn't even happen if Hiram Maxim did not invent the machine gun. The tanks were built to distroy the machine guns and to make them vulnerable. The tanks soon become almost invencible to the machine guns. My mother would like to post for the parent posting week later, not today. I hope that is OK with you. Thankyou.

Propaganda is information that is spread for the purpose of promoting a cause. During WWII, the Nazis used propaganda to promote Nazism. Jews were legally classified as a race. The Nazis knew they had a race but they thought the Jews weren’t human. Physical contact between races was forbidden. In my school years I have not yet seen propaganda.

Parent Post:
The definition of propaganda is a message designed to persuade its intended audience to think and behave in a certain manor. The most common forms of modern day propaganda are the promoting of different religious beliefs, advertisement of products and political campaigning. The effects of propaganda can vary. Propaganda can affect peoples decisions, opinions, beliefs, values and form biases depending on what the intent of the propaganda is.

The picture above shows how much Hitler hated the Jews, it started propaganda just to destroy the Jewish peoples lives. Propaganda is information that is spread for the purpose of promoting some cause. I think the article made the German children wonder, "were the Jews this bad?" Also, I think most of the German children believed in Hitler's propaganda 100%, because they didn't know any better. I think the Jews were portrayed horribly in this picture because of what the remarks say and how they were being singled out. I think most of the Jews thought the Germans were bad people because Hitler brainwashed the Germans in a matter of months, maybe even days.

I agree with Isaac's post about the picture which was printed in the children's book during Hitler's reign. Propaganda was the only way of knowing what was going on in the world to most of the people, using propaganda worked in Hitler's favor--eventhough it was for a bad cause. Since it was in a children's book, it probably negatively impacted the Jewish children by making them feel bad or embarrassed. It also sent a negative message to the German children by making them believe what Hitler's frame of thought was.

Propaganda is when you or someone else posts something in public thats makes you look good.Propaganda can also make someone or something seem or look bad even if they are not.Hitler used this technique to make him look like a kind man and a good leader we all know that this is not true.You can be very effective and reep many effects.Adolf Hitler said:" By clever and persevering use of propaganda even heaven can be represented as hell to people, and conversely the most wretched life as possible as paradise." Even if you tell someone about someone else they may not know that person so they might start thinking badly about them, because of what you said.Even commercials can tell you sommething untrue.If you are watching one and they talk about something and how great it is.Then you spend your money on it and it does not do all that the commercial said that it did do.You would not think that you could make much of a connection between three men and three blackbirds but you really can. You could make more than one.The first one that I found is that both groups are disscussing something.That thing that they are talking about is what propaganda they have just read.Since they both are both huddled togther they must not want the children nearby to hear what they are saying.Since they both are nearby the propaganda post they must have read it, before they huddled together and started talking about it.They both have something black on, wether it is natural or they are wearing it in a suit.

Propaganda could be described as persuasive communication used to influence others. It may be displayed in many forms, on television, radio, billboards, and so on. Effective propaganda appeals to and plays on human emotions. Sly propaganda can paralyze ones ablility to think clearly and could even prove deadly, as in the case of Hitler's propaganda.
You need not look to far to see modern day examples of propaganda. While the term propaganda usually has a negative connotation, occasionally it is used to accomplish positive messaging. For example, campaigns to reduce drunk driving and also messages to raise awareness of the dangers of drug use. Obviously propaganda has been used to affect human thinking and actions troughout history. Proverbs 14:15 states "A fool will believe anything." (Today's English Version) With that in mind, one would want to test what he or she reads or watches to see if it is truthful.

1.According to Dictionary.com, propaganda means ideas or information spread to promote or injure a cause, nation, etc. Propaganda can be both positive and negative. Hitler proved that propaganda can get into your head and change the way you think and see things. 2. The Jewish are portrayed as misfortunate cheats and on the wall. I saw a picture of a stick figure with black smears all over. It is probably a Jewish peson they drew as a monster. 3. To see propaganda, look in our school. An example of propaganda in our school is the drug free posters encouraging students to stay away from drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol. The difference between Hitler's propaganda and the school's is that ours are positive encouragments.

Parent's Response -

Propaganda is everywhere you look, whether you realize it or not. During "voting season", propaganda is all around, on the streets, in front of businesses, being mailed to your house. From long ago, people have realized that propaganda is the best way to get their word across, be it negative or positive. Hitler was extremely successful using propaganda to trick the people into thinking that Jewish people were awful, scary people. Especially back in the 1930s and 1940s, when there was no t.v. media available, propaganda posted around the city streets was the main way to get the word out to the residents. When out and about, people came across these posters. They would, I am sure, stop and chat about them with the others on the streets who were also checking them out. Word spreads quickly this way. Back in the 90s, when I was in high school, the school used propaganda the same way that they do today. They posted pictures all around with the negative affects that drugs and alcohol have on young students.

Propaganda is spreading rumors and lies. A purpose of helping or injuring an institution. Propaganda is everywhere, I see it every especially in school. I got say I even spread rumors sometimes, to think about it all I really hear are rumors. Rumors make people very irritated and most the time they are lies. It’s really stupid why people do this it shows how immature they are. For example one the school basketball team a girl said that the coach was going to kick me off the team when I asked the coach if she was and she said no. So as you see propaganda is a rumor of lies.

Q1: Propaganda is a tactic someone or a group of people use to instill a belief or idea; that motivates to follow that movement.
Q4: The affects of propaganda that I have experienced would have to be the Y2K scare of 1999 going into the year 2000. The propaganda behind Y2K was system failure; the fear was that there would not be access to food, water, gas, phones and computers.
Q9: The depiction of the three Jewish men and the three crows in my opinion was that Jews were to be viewed as thieves, mean or scary and misunderstood on the way they dressed.

Well i have learned that Jewish were tricked into getting into train that was said to take people to freedom. I also learned that Hitler was an artist that was not accepted into an art school witch was judged by a Jewish man. As well with Hitlers mother when she got cancer the doctor said they could do no more and soon the mother died. The doctor was a Jewish man.I believe that all of this brought on Hitlers madness


parents comment:
I think this Holocaust assignment was a very important one. Teaching about the genocide of the Jewish people of Germany and Poland, and the ultimate act of prejudice. Caitlin was very informative about the daily life of Concentration Camps and the suffering of Anne Frank's family prior to their capture and after.

Propaganda is information, esp. of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view (Google Dictionary).

Propaganda is everywhere and anywhere around us; even the car commercials, they say it is eco-friendly but maybe, it really is not. Also, some fast food restaurants say that you will lose weight by consuming their product. A great example of this is the Subway Jared campaign where he claims Subway‘s food is directly responsible for his weight lose. As children, toymakers purposefully market items to us, in hopes that it will then influence our parent’s buying decisions.

An example of how I am influenced by propaganda, is when I have money, I choose to purchase the item that I have heard that it is SUPER COOL AWESOMNESS versus making an independent decision.

Parent Post
Propaganda is a type of message aimed at influencing behavior, opinions and attitude of people. Though there is a difference between advertisements/commercials and propaganda, the underlying theme of many commercials is to spread propaganda for their product.

We see propaganda all around us these days, from sneaker companies promising that we will jump higher or run faster to the health craze that has taken hold in the fast food industry with restaurants touting how healthy their food is for their consumers. A further example can be seen in the auto industry with each auto maker attempting to convince the consumer though mass media that their car is more environmentally friendly than their competitor.

I think everyone, to some extent, is influenced by propaganda. Unless, you have completed vast amounts of independent research on an item, when faced with a choice between two things, you will choose the item that you have "heard" the most positive things about. I can honestly say that when I pull into a drive-thru, I have many times purchased an item just based upon a message I have seen from a commercial.

Propaganda is persuading someone to think of one thing or another. You see it on tv, advertisement,and conversation. Yes I have noticed it numerous of times. Propaganda causes both good and bad things to happen. Yes I have seen and heard propaganda in schools that I have attended. They may be looking at ads on the board informing about things to buy or get a job maybe. Pictures of Jews doing bad things or telling people they experience hitler had with jews. I don't see any jews. Are the men over to the side the jews? There fighting or arguing about something or talking about Hitler's laws.

Propaganda is like a rumor. Hitler used this to say that the jewish people are evil so that the people in Germany would believe that they were evil.
some of the effects propaganda has was children throughing rocks at jewish stores and owners. the effects today are, some people commiting suicide or going of on a shooting rampage at schools.
The effect on German children was that they would set jewish houses on fire and throwing rocks at windows.

Q1: Propaganda is the spreading of selected facts or allegations with the purpose of promoting a cause.

Q9: Crows are considered scavengers, feeding on the misfortune of others, and symbols of bad luck and evil. The number three was a symbol of holiness to the Jews, and was an expressed contradiction to the portrayed evilness of the three Jewish men huddled in a possible conniving conversation.

First, it undermines trust in the source of information, which means that even the truth, when it comes, may not be believed. Secondly, it encourages rumour, which may have a far more insidious effect even than bad news.”

Propaganda is the art of making someone believe something that may not necessarily be true. Propaganda can be used for good but can also be used for destructive purposes as Hitler demonstrated.
Propaganda is seen almost everywhere including in school. The school is actually one of the biggest places of propaganda. During school, it is very easy for something to spread because there are so many people gathered in one place.
The children during the Nazi era would have learned to grow up hating the Jews. The portrait portrays this because the Jewish men are huddled together talking next to a board in German while kids are looking at it. This would lead the children to believe that the Jewish people could possibly be evil.

Propaganda is a spreaded subject or idea spread by anybody. Religion is a form of propaganda, fast food is also a form of propaganda. Yes i have been influenced by propaganda because the first comercial for the Droid phone said that it could organize your life. In ww2, sighns brainwashed people to hate Jewish people because they were "destroying" the nation. I have seen propaganda spread in a school because sighns and speaches in a school influence kids to stay away from drugs and bad desitions. The picture in the book could have told a small child that thay can not to trust a Jew just like small children cant trust strangers. i notice the smallest child in the picture is taking interest in the sighns and beliving them. Three Jewish men stand chatting in the image and three crows stand next to them, the crows could metaphoricly be the Jews by saying they are scavengers.

MOM:
Propaganda is a form of communication. It is used to persuaade people to believe in an idea. When I think of modern day propaganda, I think of election time. We are overwhelmed with propaganda from both sides of the political parties. We see it when we turn on our televisions, when we listen to the radio, and the signs in our neighborhoods. I believe I have been influenced by propaganda, as everyone has. Its hard not to be influenced when our society relies so heavily on marketing. Our children are marketed to beginning at a very young age. Even my three year old son associates McDonald's with being happy and having fun!

Propaganda-information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc.

Modern day propaganda is used in commercials daily. Helping the corporation to sell their products based on beliefs that by using them the consumer's desire will come true. Example: Axe body spray commercials where the guy sprays it on and the women come out of nowhere and start ripping his clothes off.

I asked my 7 yr old to look at the picture and tell me her thoughts on the men. She as I thought, stated that they had mean looks on their faces. She said that she would be scared if she was one of the kids standing so close them. Because of her aspect of the image she saw, being innocent and not truly knowing the situation, I would have to concur that the children in that era were manipulated into believing that jews were mean/evil and scary, therefore it would be acceptable to them to "rid" society of them.

Parent: Propaganda is spreading lies or rumors about someone or something in order to discredit the idea or the person.

What are the effects of propaganda?
JGrady: It can make people believe things that aren’t true. It can make someone hate someone or something they don’t understand. It makes you think stories are true unless you get proof it is not.
Parent: In today’s busy world, many people do not take the time to research people/ideas to form their own opinions, they put their trust into what they hear and do not always consider the source (campaign politics for example). People are often misinformed or mislead and get unreliable information by believing the propaganda rather than searching for the truth.

What kind of an influence do you think the book shown above had on small children?
JGrady: I think the stories made the kids believe what they read. The stories had to have made them feel scared. If they are reading it in a book then they must think its all true.
Parent: The children that read these books were being misled into thinking that the Jews were the ‘boogie man’ and that the Nazi’s were their friends. Hitler turned reading books into a tool of hatred and discrimination. He poisoned the minds of innocent children who were too young and naive to understand they were being deceived.

Propaganda is using subtle imagery and words to make one believe something that may or may not be true, usually politically motivated and with malice towards another. The concept is to make a person believe something without really knowing the "real facts" and making conclusions based on what they believe.
Of course any election year we are exposed to propaganda in order for each candidate to make us believe that they are better or their opponent is worse. I have definately been influenced by propaganda on many occassions. Even everyday advertising could be considered propaganda. In this technologically advanced age we are even more exposed.
I think the picture portrays the Jewish men as scary and even calculating which would be frightening to small children. The birds are scary as well and even look a bit like the old men, so they would be connected in the childrens' minds as scary mean birds and scary mean Jews.

So therefore he made the Jews look terribly bad to the Germans, and especially children would believe everything the propaganda would say because their children or they’re parents influenced it.

4. The effects of propaganda are many. It strives to sway people from their original ideas so that people no longer think for themselves. It changes people's perspective and influences the choices they make. People may take in the information without first verifying what they have read, seen, or heard. This can have terrible consequences as we have learned from WWII, 9-11 and other worldwide events. Of course, the effects can also be more benign, such as using a certain product because a celebrity has endorsed it.

8. The Jewish people in the picture are depicted as dark, secretive figures. They appear to be plotting or discussing something in their huddle. A child having this picture shown to them may think all Jewish people are old, mean, and scary.

Parent response:
Q1- Propaganda is a specific type of message staging, aimed at serving
an agenda.

Q2- Modern day examples of propaganda are visible ubiquitously. I
believe the majority of the propaganda we view today is in television
and internet advertising.  The subtle innuendo's that many companies use
when attempting to lure consumers, can be deemed propaganda. One example
is beauty products, people want to be attractive. By showing a
commercials with a famous woman telling consumers she uses a certain
cream to maintain or enhance her beauty, is a blatant example.
Commercial television is designed to turn citizens into passive
consumers.

Q3- I have been influenced by propaganda that I have seen. Like most
Americans, I too want to live a long, healthy and prosperous life. I
have bought into many forms of advertising and political propaganda.
Some with stellar results and some not. I have trusted in some messages
that were displayed in reference to a political standpoint, and for the
most part, the outcome wasn't as "advertised".

Q7:What do you see in the picture that would teach children to hate and fear Jewish people?
Un the picture there are three Jewish men standing with eachother talking or so and their are children and an adult standing looking at a bill board. The three men are dresses in black and smoking.They have canes and hats.The children on the other hand are dressed casual and playful.This might make the children think o those men are mean, evil, and rude,they might think this because they are dressed in black and are smoking.

Propaganda is an influential form of communication meant to change the opinion or attitude of a community towards some issue or cause. This is most often associated with a political issue of some type.

As for the effects of propoganda it is often seen in the form of an entire community adopting a common point of view towards some issue. For instance the idea that Germans are a superior race and Jews in some way inferior.



Looking at the picture I am having a hard time seeing what impact this would have on me. Perhaps the cultural meaning has been lost to the change of time. It certainly seems to be portraying the Jewish men as 'dark' and perhaps mean. Crows seldomly seem to be seen in a positive light. Children are certainly easily influenced by things they see and animals so I imagine the book made an impression on them.

Propaganda is a miss leading way to try to influence people in beliving something that is not true. Propaganda are not good for childrens because kids tend to think that if something is writen it must be true.

propaganda is a tricky way of making people think the wrong thing. For example, hitler made videos that showed jews ( that were actually nazi's and S.S) playing sports and having fun at concentration camps.
The book above must have made them feel that jews are a waste of space on the earth and should go to hell. I see that the poster is really talking about extremely bad stuff about the jews and making them look almost like terrorists but truthfully the jews did not do anything wrong.

Propaganda Definition
Merriam Webster:
"the spreading of information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person"
"ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one's cause or to damage an opposing cause, also, a public reaction having such an effect"

Looking at the picture, it appears as if the jewish group appear to hide something, share information nobody is allowed to hear, the are dressed very dark and they certainly look a little unfriendly. on the other hand are the children, dressed up in colorful clothes, hair done nicely, all the children show great interest to the posting which reads "Achtung"which translates to "Attention", I remember hearing from my family that they told me stories how Hitler wanted the kids to follow him, kids were enthusiastic about his ideas and they even turned against their own parents!

Q1:Propaganda is biased or slanted information to either help or harm a person, group, or movement.

Q2: The way the Jewish people are portrayed in the picture by the darker color clothes and the gloomy facial expressions could teach children to hate and fear Jewish people. Additionally, the children readingt the billboards are white, blonde, and are more colorful not so gloomy looking.

Q3: Yes I have seen propaganda in schools. Drug awareness can be considered propaganda in schools. I have even seen schools have propaganda for reading and eating healthy.

Parent Post:

Propoganda is the opion or ideas of an individual or group that is being force on to others. It is all around us and as long as people don't stand up for themselves and others it will always be around. It is placed on billboards, posters, in newspapers, magazines and on T.V. it is also in schools because of the bullies and kids being told something by the teachers and then are denied what is told.

1. Propaganda is when a person says somthing like hitler said "I hate jews".
Then after they say it they force people to believe it.
2.An example of modern day propaganda is that movies are teaching kids and adults to be afraid of muslims.
3. have been influinced by propaganda. I was watching a movie about 911 and people were saying if you get on a plane and there is a muslim that you should ask to get on the next plane.

hitlers propganda was devistating to the jew race.hitler wanted to make the perfect race.hitler had his army do experiments on the jews.he also made the jews run til they died of exaustion.adolf also made the jews starve to death.thats why the jews were litteraly skin and bones.adolph also tricked the jews by making them think that they were going to take showers but hitler's army threw them into the fire pits and burned them.adolf also had his army kill gipseys, jews, blacks and pretty much everyone who he thought was richer than him and not his type of race.hitlers army killed over 11million people and not just jews.
