Upon watching my grandfather’s Holocaust history video (he spent time in Dachau and Buchenwald in 1938), I started to do some research on the Holocaust and Nazi anti-Semitism. One of the stated justifications for the Holocaust by the Nazis (and Hitler specifically) was that if the Jews started another world war, they would have to be erased from the Earth. Well, of course another World War started, and even though the Nazis were the aggressors, starting the the war through repeated imperialist expansion, they still blamed the Jews!
What I want to know is what twisted reason they had for the Jews starting WWII. Obviously they were probably going to blame the Jews no matter what happened, since they predicted it beforehand. But was it just propaganda and publicity? Or did the Nazi leadership actually believe that the Jews were to blame?
