In this article, the writer discusses that anti-Semitism was the principal doctrine of Nazism and was evident as early as Hitler's original written autobiography 'Mein Kampf'. The writer discusses the history and logistics of the Holocaust and notes that one of the paradoxes of the Holocaust is the degree to which the traditional administrative efficiency and timeliness of the Germans applied to the most horrific of human atrocities ever perpetrated. The writer concludes that the Nazi Holocaust has been taught as one of the worst atrocities ever perpetrated by man, in connection with efforts to understand the psychological and sociological mechanisms through which such an event could transpire in modern times.

From the Paper:

"Generally, the individuals were herded into the cattle cars and hurried along by Nazi soldiers with varying degrees of cruelty depending on whether or not deportations were still being camouflaged. If not, Jews were subjected to being whipped with riding crops, hit with riot batons, or otherwise physically abused to expedite their cooperation. In some instances, Nazi officers made examples out of uncooperative individuals by cracking their skulls open with a baton or a rifle but; according to some accounts by survivors as well as the Nazis themselves, the more sadistic officers sometimes grabbed a child by the feet right from the arms of a mother slowing the process down by protesting being separated from her child and swung the child against the train's undercarriage head first, killing it before shoving the mother into the car.
"Depending on the precise route, the train ride to the camps could last for three days and nights, during which the cars were completely sealed shut, often without any fresh air at all unless someone managed to break a hole in the wall of the train car. There was no food of any kind and more often than not, no water provided."
