Analysis of the underlying social psychology of the Holocaust March 9 2000 The hate and prejudice that began the Holocaust went hand in hand with a political agenda that was fueled by the frustration aggression theory1 Hitler blamed the Jews for the loss of World War I and thus instead of targeting political aspects of the Jewish community he displaced his aggression towards ALL Jews even the helpless This combined with religious anti-Semitism prejudice that had been present in Germany for 1500 years and the theory of eugenics was the political and instrumental center of Hitlers political campaign5 He used a system of elimination of freedom which he felt was necessary in the conditioning the German people to follow him This meant that he would slowly change the rules allowing him to gain more and more control over his people New laws preventing rebellious attempts to overthrow his government and the elimination of non-supporters that would possibly dissent disagree with his plan1 gave Hitler complete control over what happened within the countrys boundaries5 He further conditioned the Germans to accept the program for the final solution of the Jews with the constant onslaught of misleading propaganda Propaganda is the dissemination of ideas and information for the purpose of inducing or intensifying specific attitudes and actions4 This misleading information conditioned the German people to stereotype all Jews as evil and thus most of them became prejudice This was an effect of what is called the availability effect1 That is they made stereotypical judgements based on the information available to them Many of the Germans had been raised under the influence of this propaganda and it was all that they knew about the Jews thus the only available information with which to make judgements by Under the umbrella of ethical relativism2 these judgements were ethical in relevance to the German culture at this time and thus widely accepted by the German people
