On the night of November 9, 1938, violence against Jews broke out across the Reich. It appeared to be unplanned, set off by Germans' anger over the assassination of a German official in Paris at the hands of a Jewish teenager. During the Holocaust, six million Jews were murdered while others were thrown out of their homes with nowhere to go, hundreds became homeless and sick. One of the most significant events that took place during this time is called Kristallnacht. This is better known as, "the night of broken glass".
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
They came north to Canada but Canadian also turned them away. The Canadian prime minister showed unwelcomed attitude to Jewish people when he supported the deputy minister of immigration’s comment about allowing Jewish people to enter Canada. Canada response to Jewish refugee applicants was that at this time, Canada is not admitting Jews, please try some other country. Canada should open the “door” and be welcome to Jewish. Jewish people living so complicated that everyone try to send them away so Canada should accept
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.
Marie Noel English 120 Prof Lavi 12/3/12 Title: The story about prejudging In this society, prejudice which is an unjustified attitude towards an individual based on a social group has been a major problem in the United States. Throughout history, the act of prejudice has caused a lot of death and mistreatment on many social groups. A great example of prejudice is World War II concerning the Jews. During the reign of Adolf Hitler, the Jews were being mistreated and murdered out of pure hatred. According to the Holocaust Encyclopedia approximately six million Jews were killed.
The Canadian Japanese Internment The Japanese-Canadians were some of the WWII worst human collateral damage our country will ever see and much was learned and still has to be learned from that incident. The mentality from seventy years ago is not the same as today’s ways of thinking. People were not treated the same way they are treated now, nor did they respond well to situations of great magnitude such as the bombing of Pearl Harbor of December 7 1941. The Japanese-Canadians were brutalized and treated poorly because of a war they had no connection to. In British Columbia, Canada, there approximately twenty one thousand Japanese residents and out of the whole number, seventy percent of them had citizenship status, making them just as Canadian as any other citizen.
Most were murdered. In these death camps and elsewhere -- where Hitler's followers carried out his terrible plan -- six million Jews were killed. One-and-a-half million Jewish children were among them. vi In 1945, the war ended and the entire world learned the horrors of what had gone on in the concentration camps. Since then, people have been trying to understand more about what is today known as the "Holocaust," the worst example of genocide -- the mass murder of people because of their race, religion, or ethnicity -- in human history.
The reason why is because during the On-to-Ottawa trek workers were unhappy with their critical conditions and when the workers leaders made it to the PM in Ottawa they got accused of being terrorists and communists. The second reason is that the terrorist group known as the FLQ used terrorism to try to attempt separatism during the October Crisis .The government imposed the war measures act which affected the citizens of Quebec. It is believed that other measures could have been used to resolve this problem. Finally the Parti Quebecois’s decision to pass bill 101 was unjustified to the English speaking Canadians. It showed that Quebec wants to have no relations with the rest of
They were not given much basic needs, leading to some prisoner to illness and even death. Even though Canada was not getting enough military enlistment during the First World War, the Canadian governments barred Ukrainian-Canadians from enlisting. For these reasons, Canada discriminated its own Ukrainian-Canadians. The last case of “unjust” society in Canada is the treatment toward the Chinese-Canada. The Chinese have contributed countless of efforts to build one of most important asset of the country, the Canadian Pacific Railways.
The first world war had brought about unprecedented human suffering in European history. Whole societies of nearly every nation in the continent were either directly or indirectly affected by the war. All parties, including the (Allied Powers- Britain, France and USA) and Germany were all dissatisfied with the Treaty of Versailles. Firstly, Germany was extremely discontented with the Treaty of Versailles. She felt that the Treaty was unfair as it stressed and emphasized that Germany was solely responsible for the World war.
