The Holocaust was seen by many as a horrid event and one of the greatest signs of racism and hate. While people may have seen it as just Hitler being racist it was actually a needed event. Without the Holocaust, Germany would have fallen under itself with trying to provide protection, food, and shelter to thousands of Jews and the Jews have also had a record of rebelling against those who have occupied them. During the Roman occupation and the Egyptian before it the Jews rebelled against their over-bearers. Hitler simply took the simple path and eradicated them. This was also true for the Slavs, not just the Jews, further proving that it was not a racist conquest but a way to keep his empire under control. The idea that Germans were the best was not just aimed at the Jews, but was their universal theme against all nations. This idea also helped them in their conquest because it gave them a sense of purpose that the world should be under German superiority because of their racial dominance. Back to the topic, the Holocaust caused something that was not uncommon which was crowd control. There were thousands upon thousands of Jews and, just as America did with the Japanese, locked them in camps for fear of rebellion. As I said earlier, sometimes it would have become too taxing on their resources and so they had to lower their numbers. This was not their idea of "MUST KILL JEWS!!!!" but more "Hey there are too many here for us to take care of but we can't release them." To finish, Germany was charging in all directions on a two front war and so could not afford an internal problem within Germany and the Holocaust was just a way to ensure that no problems occurred within Germany itself.
Again, this is NOT to offend or to make anyone feel less about the Holocaust. This is simply for debating purposes only.
