3 Reasons the Holocaust Could Happen Again
I hope the title gave you goosebumps, because it gave me major shivers to write on this topic. Without a doubt, Adolf Hitler’s 3rd Reich was one of the most scary and evil political regimes of the modern world.
But surely, surely the Holocaust, a systematic slaughter of millions during WWII, could never happen again.
But it could happen; it’s already starting to. How? Let me explain.
#1: We’re killing off the so-called “uglies.”
As you probably know, the Nazis, and specifically Adolf Hitler, had a very specific idea of what made the perfect human—the “Aryan race.”
Blond hair, blue eyes, perfect health, a pure German pedigree, and a heart for Hitler.
Those with mental or physical disabilities and illnesses, the aged, those from different countries, those with different religions, those with darker skin … these were all “uglies” in Hitler’s eyes.
People, precious human beings, of all sorts, were gathered up and brutally killed or sent to prison camps to die.
When we talk about the Holocaust, we tend to focus mostly on the Jews. However, Hitler’s killing spree touched those who were born blind, deaf, mute, or physically disabled, people with illnesses (mental and physical) of all types, and anyone who rebelled against the 3rd Reich.
How does this apply to us?
Generally, society is pushing towards acceptance. Being sure that no one is rejected based on their race, their gender, et cetera. In some ways, this is good, since it means less prejudice toward our fellow human beings.
There is also danger in saying sins are okay, and we must watch for that. However, I see a lot more people being open to those with different looks, personalities, races, and more, and that’s good! We’re all God’s children.
However, this world is far from perfect.
Both the elderly and the young are threatened now through euthanization and abortion. And how do some people justify it?
They kill elderly people because they believe their life is over. Because they are weak. Because they are no longer fit.
They kill babies because they have a chance of having a mental or physical disability or illness. Because it would be inconvenient for them to be born. Because they are unwanted.
Sadly, the similarities to Nazism’s mass murder of people who are considered “less” than “Aryan” is heartbreaking.
#2: Always looking for a human savior.
After WWI, Germany was ripe for the plucking, and the world was ready to ignore that plucking. The Allies turned their heads until it was too late … and whoops, WWII had started!
Not so good for the Allies … but what about the citizens of Germany? How did this happen? Surely some good people existed in Germany who would have fought this?
Well, if you do a bit of research, you’ll quickly find that things were tough after WWI for the Germans. In fact, life was downright miserable.
But, guess what? Adolf Hitler was there to save them.
Desperate as Germany was, they were ready to accept Hitler as their leader even though it was clear he was unstable.
They needed someone to pull them out of the mess their country had gotten into … and there he was, with a bunch of Jews, gypsies, and other innocents where he could shift blame!
They were only too glad to hand him the reins, turning blind eyes on his terrible regimes.
How does this apply to us?
Every day, America gives up more and more of its freedom in exchange for free health care, transportation, food, schooling for our children, and all sorts of other things.
All of these are nice benefits—but isn’t freedom a nice benefit, too? The ability to live and believe however we want to without fearing for our safety, and even our existence?
Let’s always be aware of how much the government controls us, how much influence it has over our opinions and beliefs, and how it shapes us as people.
We don’t want to be a brainwashed Germany enthralled by the perfect trap—salvation from worldly issues in exchange for the abandonment of morality and meaningless hatred towards our fellow man.
#3: We … forget.
It seems rather strange that two major wars with thousands of casualties occurred so close to each other. As I explored this issue for a novel I’m working on, it got more and more curious to me.
How could they forget that their fathers, uncles, or even grandfathers had just been brutally killed and their country destroyed by another such conflict?
Germany and other countries in the Axis suffered more than the Allies in reconstruction after WWI. And I can see how they might have felt a need for some revenge as well as furthering their rather trodden-upon country.
But other countries were not entirely without blame, and I bring forward the idea that perhaps, the new generation was all too ready to forget.
How does this apply to us?
It has been 70+ years since the events of the Holocaust and the reign of the 3rd Reich. And already, so many of us are forgetting.
We’re trying to justify Adolf Hitler’s actions.
Trying to point out the “goodness” behind Nazism—how efficient they are.
Efficient … in killing people? Efficient in forcing their evil plans on millions?
Saying we’re somehow better than that, that it could never happen again in the modern world, that … we’re different. We’re not as evil.
The truth is, it could happen again. In some small ways, it’s already happening again in America, and there is a lot of very similar things happening throughout the world in places where even the bravest missionaries must tremble to enter.
But we can’t forget—we mustn’t! Even though it’s disturbing and sickening, we must remember the 3rd Reich, and remember that, perhaps, it could happen again.
Be alert! Don’t let yourself fall into passivity. Look at the world around you and evaluate based on godly standards.
I’m not trying to be a doomsayer, but it is something to think about what with Holocaust Remembrance Day being yesterday.
Furthermore, New York’s recent ruling – that CHILDREN can be MURDERED up until birth with no restrictions* – is incredibly heartbreaking. We can now legally murder innocents for basically any reason.
Don’t become passive about this! If you are a Christian, or even a decent human being, you know that this is wrong. You must!
There is no medical reason that would require a late-term abortion even to save the mother’s life. An emergency C-section can save both more and child … without brutally murdering an infant.
Also, there is absolutely no reason the mother is more valuable than the child. None.
We are all precious. Every single one of us, no matter our age, race, gender, background, etc.
So stand up and fight against this because, y’all, it’s beyond evil. It’s horrid, sickening, wicked, and anti-God in every way.
*if you think it’s not that bad, read the bill.
In summary, sorry for such a dark post today, but it needed said! We need to stand up … against abortion, against corrupt political leaders, against Satan, again our own passivity and forgetfulness.
Thanks for reading,
Do you agree with me? Do you have any further points to bring up? What are you doing to stand up against abortion? ARE YOU AS HORRIFIED AS I AM!?
Wow, I just can’t believe it. I’m shocked, though I know, based on how terrible the world is, I shouldn’t be.
