Comparisons to Holocaust Life’s experiences teach us that unless we can learn from our mistakes, that history will repeat its self! Were the genocides against the Native Americans a stepping stone to the Nazi Holocaust? Historical facts can lead one to believe that it most likely was. From the beginning of both the Holocaust and the Native American genocide there were many stereotypes. Stereotypes are a form of classification based on inaccurate information or assumptions.

Sustainability is defined by Wikipedia as the ability to endure. The Kirschner’s are an example of a community who is primarily concerned with maintaining their identity through the culture of the Jewish religion. There is a growing fear and concern among the Jewish communities of the world that Jewish identity outside of sects is disappearing. I’ve heard it called another holocaust in a sense; as if the free choices made by some Jews to live in ways that other Jews regard as insufficiently Jewish could be equated with the deaths of those who were murdered because they were Jewish. The characters in the book who were directly traumatized by the Holocaust fight to sustain the culture and the religion.
Part 1 The table shows data from an experiment by social psychologist Stanley Milgram into levels of obedience to authority amongst 'ordinary' people. How would they behave in a moral dilemma between authority and wickedness? The headline row labels the 2 numerical columns directly below, which show the average level of shock administered and the proportion of participants who obeyed until the maximum voltage. The extreme left column labels pre-trial predictions, the original study and 2 variations. Row 1 shows that before the experiment students predicted a relatively low, (140v), level of shock would be administered and that none, (0%), would comply to the end.
Before delving into his arguments, Shepkaru repeated the most popular theories of modern historians like Robert Chazan, Jonathan Riley-Smith, and many others as to what were the root causes of the violence against the European Jews. Robert Chazan debates that the Crusaders were driven by “religious idealism” which was blended with a “distorted” version of Pope Urban II’s message; whereas, Jonathan Riley-Smith opines that the Crusaders were so blinded by “religious idealism” that they could not even identify the true enemy from a Muslim or Jew. Taken from Dana Munro and H.E.J Cowdrey, Shepkaru utilizes Pope Urban II’s speech as a backdrop for this scenario.
Due to David Olére witnesses and being involved in the extermination, the images painted by him would have been what he had witnessed and experienced at the time. Source B gives us an idea of the horror and misery the Jews who were being gassed went through and an idea of what it would of looked like to see the remains of the dead bodies after they were all murdered. In the corner of Source B you can see a container labeled Zyklon B, this gives the viewer an idea into what extermination phase they were going through at the time that David Olére was there. In sources A, C, and D, it gives us an idea of what horrible jobs the Jews were given at the concentration camps. This can be extremely useful to a historian.
To some the experiment seemed like a complete failure but in reality Zimbardo proved his point within six days of his experiment. Zimbardo’s article maybe seems to be about how good people do bad things, but it’s really about situational power and how too much power can be abused. I agree with Zimbardo’s argument because there has been many cases were power has been abused, but I feel like he could of used a better example such as, Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust seem like the perfect example of situational power and power being abused. The Holocaust was segregation and extermination of the Jews.
Much has been made of Jewish violence towards Arabs during the Dir Yassine Massacre, but Arab warfare was just as “savage” (Source K) as Jewish warfare. Arab armies were “killing, raping, looting, and pillaging” (Source K) various Jewish communities. This shows that the Arabs themselves were committing many of the atrocities they claimed the Jews were practicing against them. Zionist activist and author, Joseph B. Schectman, claimed that “ Measuring the Jewish reaction by their own standards, they simply could not imagine that the Jews would not reply in kind what they had suffered at Arab hands” (Source K). To conclude, Arab propaganda and warfare could only provoke a harsh reaction from the Jews, and thus explains the reasoning behind Zionist officials need to permanently expel the

He connected with the audience by keeping them engaged. He was influential not only with his public speaking, but with propaganda. Hitler created propaganda that would influence the citizens of Germany to think that the Jews were inferior. Another way he used his influential attribute was by violence. When a fire started in the Reichstag building, Hitler used it as a way to start series of terrorist acts against politicians he considered enemies (“Hitler, Adolf”).
