In areas such as South Carolina and Georgia, the master was not present on the plantation. Slaves were ran in a “task system” in which they were controlled by an overseer and were assigned a certain task, or tasks, to do in a day and once they successfully completed said task they were free to spend their time in their own manner. This system allowed for slaves to create their own environments and to keep many of their African traditions and culture alive because they were not being exposed to the New World that the masters lived
When you start a rumor, it can hurt someone and sometimes it gets out of hand. This is what happened during the Holocaust. The Nazi’s started a rumor that the Jews were the reason they lost the war, because they (Jews), were an inferior race, according to Adolf Hitler. This is how Hitler started his rumor and plan to get rid of all people that were “inferior” and begin a “Perfect” race. Some-times people make wrong choices by judging others without really knowing them.
Living, Eating, and Working as Slaves In the early 1865, slavery had come to the United States of America. Millions of slaves were told that they were free, and therefore many of them had been interviewed to share both of their happy and awful conditions they had during their slavery. The various conditions related to food, living, and work influenced whether or not slaves challenged their owners in the late 1800s. Some slaves were pretty satisfied with their owners but the others had lived the lives that people nowadays could ever imagine. The desire of being free resembled the awful conditions that some of them had.
The Holocaust and the Apartheid The Holocaust was when the Nazis, led by Hitler, killed six million Jewish people, Gypsies or ‘undesirables’. Adolf Hitler blamed Germany loosing the war on the Jewish people and decided they should pay for it. There were ghettos, which Jewish families were crammed into with little rations and not much space. Jews were put in concentration camps and labour camps, people were killed and many fell ill. People fell ill and many died at the concentration and labour camps, then many were taken to camps where they were led into chambers and gassed. The Apartheid was when white people came to Africa and took over; they took the land from the black people and kept it themselves.
Samira Oral History The interview I read about was a female named Lois Ahrens who lived in Northampton with her partner and whose interest is politics. Moreover, she was born in 1947 right after the world war two and grew up in a working class family in Brooklyn New York. Especially, her uncle and aunt were politically active people in the 30s which inspired her more towards it. Moreover, in her interview she talks how most of his relatives died in the war, in addition it wasn’t surprising/shocking for her because most of the people surrounding her also lost relatives in the war. Since she was Jewish his family went through bad phase in their lives just like any other Jewish did during those years.
He brainwashed people to believe that Jews were evil people and they weren’t true Germans. He defined being Jewish by blood and not by religion. Those who had Jewish ancestors were also defined as Jews although they weren’t as religious. The Holocaust was truly an awful, cruel, horrible time in our
The crimes committed during the Holocaust devastated most European Jewish communities and eliminated hundreds of Jewish communities in occupied eastern Europe entirely. The Holocaust must be remembered as a unique atrocity, distinct from any other. To compare the Holocaust with Hiroshima, for example, denies and hides the historic role of German and Christian anti-Semitism that lead to and helped Hitler's theories. Therefore, such a comparison shows that Americans are no worse than the Nazis, and that Hitler was no worse than Truman. So how could we forget about something so tragic?
These camps are commonly known for their inhumane treatment of prisoners of war. People usually first hear about concentration camps with some association of Adolf Hitler and the extermination of the Jews. These camps were also called extermination camps because the Nazis mostly just slaughtered the Jews. There are many survivors who are still alive today that can tell horrifying stories of their experience in a concentration camp. Most of them have suffered some kind of physical or emotional damage from lack of food, physical abuse, or being cut off from society for so long.
I felt like those people didn’t deserve what the were going through. Just because they were of different religion to the other Germans didn’t mean the had to be treated an less than a human being. The fact that the Jewish were murdered in many gruesome ways upset me. Filled me with some much rage. What broke my heart the most was seeing the little shoes of the children that the German soldiers had killed.
