This demonstrates how the Holocaust destroyed families being together, and how it affected how history developed through the years. In addition, the Holocaust shouldn't be forgotten because it made people aware of tyrant leaders. For example, when the SS men stripped the Jews, "An SS came towards us wielding a club. He commanded: 'Men to the left! Women to the right!'
The consequences of Kristallnatch, the event in Germany was rejected by various and praised by others, many governments cut off relations with Germany in protest. The Jews who remained in Germany were forced to pay a fine of one billion marks for the damage in kristallnatch, Jewish children were not accepted in schools and there was a mass escape of Jews living in territories ruled by the 3rd Reich. As we saw the Kristallnatch was not a spontaneous act but an act orchestrated by the nazis who had been waiting for the right occasion to performed it, with that act the Nazis declared an
The people that are most affected are the survivors. Kristallnacht was a Nazi street riot where streets were littered with broken glass. It was presented by the Nazi regime as a spontaneous public outburst provoked by the assassination of a minor German diplomat in Paris, Ernst vom Rath, by a seventeen-year-old Polish Jew, Herschel Grynszpan. The pogrom's name comes from the German word for beveled plate glass (Kristallglas) and refers to the broken shop windows of the Jewish stores, hence Kristallnacht, or Night of the Broken Glass. Mass destruction broke out across Germany: synagogues were destroyed and burned, shop windows were broken and stores looted, Jewish homes were invaded and household furnishing stolen or destroyed, and Jewish people were physically assaulted, sometimes even raped and murdered, and arrested.
In this essay, I will be including and explaining the real facts and figures of what happened in the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a time of devastation and corruption. It was a time of cruelty and it was terribly inhumane. The Holocaust and its supporters tried vainly to make the world perfect, but only succeeded in killing millions. The Nazi’s and Adolph Hitler spoke against Jews even before the start of World War II, they blamed them for
Many Jewish people chose to use violent opposition as resistance to the actions of the Germans. This was undertaken in both ghettos and concentration camps. In a number of ghettos, Jewish communities used violence resistance against Nazi activities. Source A is an account of Jewish defiance in the Warsaw ghetto against the Nazis . The Nazis wished to deport the Jews to Treblinka extermination camp and liquidate the ghetto, and the source demonstrates the Jewish opposition to the genocide of their race.
I believe that life changed drastically for the average German in between 1933 and 1939 under Nazi and Hitler’s rule. I intend to show how life changed for these people and the many different communities in Germany in between these times. In 1933 the were lots of different communities in Germany but it was very varied on who would come out the better and who would come out the worse from Nazi rule in the long run. The community that were treated by far the worse were without question the Jewish people of Germany. Hitler and most Nazis believed that Jewish people were devils and only wanted to conquer the world and bring destruction to everything that people had worked hard to achieve.
Why does the name “Holocaust” disturb us so much? Maybe it is because of the inhumane way the Nazis treated the Jews, perhaps like Moshe said this event really was a “failure of humanity” Nazis stripped identities and rights away from Jews. Jews were dehumanized and their identities were taken away, they were violated both physically and mentally. But what has the rest of the world done? What were they doing while these people were getting stepped on?
Felicia ortiz Period 3 May 5, 2012 Felishaortiz61@yahoo.com The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state sponsored persecution and murder of approximetely six million jews by the nazi regime and its collaborators. Holocaust is a word of Greek origin meaning sacrifice by fire. The nazis, who came to power in germany in January 1933 belived that germans were racially superior and that the jews , deemed inferior were an alien threat to the so called german racial community. During the era of the holocaust , german authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived racial inferiority. 1933 the jewish population of Europe stood at over nine million.
One of the most disturbing scenes in the Monuments Men is where Colonel Wegner supervises the destruction of art works plundered by the Nazis. These treasures were intended for Hitler’s Fuehrer Museum in Austria but as the Allies close in on Germany in 1945, Hitler decided that, if he cannot have these masterpieces, no one else will have them. So Wegner and his squad set fire to crate after crate of arts. The Nazi destruction of stolen art was an act of gratuitous violence against Europe’s cultural heritage, undertaken in service to a demented ideology—the slaughter of Jews, Slavs, Gypsies, the mentally ill, and all those who fell under the category of lebensunwertes leben. Similarly, gratuitous destruction of ancient cultural centers
ADJUSTMENT AND STEREOTYPES AGAINST JEWISH IMMIGRANTS 1 Insight on Hardships of Jewish Immigrants Matt Fischetti Union County College Professor Cohen; Minorities in America, Sociology 206 ADJUSTMENT AND STEREOTYPES AGAINST JEWISH IMMIGRANTS 2 In the late 1930’s and early 1940’s the world was falling into despair and chaos. Some European Countries, especially Germany were staging a genocide of an entire ethnicity. At the helm of all these horrific actions was a man named Adolph Hitler. He still could not get over the mortifying truth behind the World War I. He tried so desparately to create a total blonde-haired, blue eyed poplation and anyone who wasn’t of that demographic was to be executed.
