And yet, Hitler failed!

The holocaust was a terrible tragedy in human history. While the Jewish people were not part of the conflict, millions of them were murdered by Hitler and his Nazi regime. This was and still is very painful. But Hitler failed! How?

He had a dream

Hitler knew about the efforts of several people to establish a national homeland for the Jewish people in Israel. The Balfour Declaration of 1917 and 1922 resulted in the confirmation by The League of Nations of the British Mandate in 1922. And since September 1923 this mandate came into effect.

Just as he knew about the result of the Évian Conference on Lake Geneva in 1938, which left the Jewish people in Europe virtually defenseless. Why? The conference did not pas a resolution condemning the German treatment of the Jewish people. Nor did the conference agree on which countries should receive the Jewish migrants fleeing Nazi Germany.

What did Hitler want to achieve? What was his dream? His Third Reich firmly established in the whole of Europe. And he wanted the elimination of all the Jews. He was still very clear about this at his Wannsee Conference in January 1942. At the time there were about 10,3 million Jewish people in the territories controlled directly or indirectly by the Nazis. So, what happened?
