Hitler doesn't look like a very strong or capable man. Barring superhuman strength, how did he manage to kill so many people?

    Of course it is a chestnut that Hitler killed them by himself. Eichmann, one of his subordinates, pleaded that he was only following orders. The Nazi government was a social machine. It conducted the war and it conducted the extermination camps.

    But, most importantly, hatred of the Jews was nothing new in Germany with Hitler. The relation between Christian and Jew in Europe had always varied between best of friends and mortal enemies. And it didn't seem to stem from the actions of the Jews. Complicating matters, the Jews were essential because of their business skills and answered directly only to the King. This no doubt led to resentment by the commoners, who were oppressed by authority at every turn. The Jews stood as a state within the state, a stateless people and the difficulty with this dependency is what led to a solution in the creation of a Jewish state,Israel.

    He used his "charm" and "charisma" to manipulate German citizens to follow his orders.

      Indeed Hitler did not personally kill a single person. But under his Nazi regime millions of people were deliberately killed simply for who they were (Jews, gypsies, Slavs, homosexuals, disabled people, etc), apart from all the usual casualties of war in combat and bombing cities etc.

    A growing number of keen observers, like Sir Horace Rumbold, British Ambassador in Berlin, began to revise their opinions. On 22 February 1933, he wrote, "Hitler may be no statesman but he is an uncommonly clever and audacious demagogue and fully alive to every popular instinct," and he informed the Foreign Office that he had no doubt that the Nazis had "come to stay."
