This time is said to be one of the darkest periods in human history as it explores the extent that the Nazi’s went through in order to eliminate any “impure” groups from Germany. Schindler was a profiteering womanizer during the war, but as the film progresses, Schindler begins to show gratitude towards the Jews and make his goal to aid as many as he could. Schindler does this by writing a list and buying as many Jews as he can so they could work in his factories and, in the end, triumphs by saving 1,100 Jews. Triumph of the human spirit plays a prominent role in this film. Jews from “Schindler’s List” presents to us their unbroken spirit and will to survive.
The Germans’ interests are to obey Nazis orders so they would not have to be at fault for being against the laws of Hitler. Few Germans weren’t for the Holocaust and the extermination of the Jews, but most of Germanys population were. They just went along what they were told to do. The Jews interests are to live and get away from the Nazi rule. The other actors that are responding to the Milgram Experiment are : The learner, the teacher, and the person who is conducting the experiment.
The development of identity seems to have been one of his greatest concerns in Erikson's own life as well as in his history. During his childhood and early adulthood he was known as Erik Homberger, his parents kept the details of his birth a secret. Erik was a tall, blonde, blue-eyed boy who was Jewish. At school, Erik was teased for being Nordic, but at grammar school kids teased him for being Jewish. After graduating high school, Erik was really concentrating on becoming an artist.
The first major law to curtail the rights of Jewish citizens was the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service of April 7, 1933, which excluded Jews and the “politically unreliable” from civil service. The new law was the German authorities' first formulation of the so-called Aryan Paragraph, a regulation used to exclude Jews (and often, by extension, other “non-Aryans”) from organizations, professions, and other aspects of public life. This would become the foundation of the Nuremberg Race Laws of 1935, which defined Jews not by religious belief but by ancestral lineage and which formalized their segregation from the so-called Aryan population. In April 1933, German law restricted the
He wanted complete evacuation of Jews rather than emigration. Germans have already isolated them from their culture, society, government but he wanted to remove their physical existence also.

There are also specific duties for listed organisations including the production of Race Equality Schemes (RES). Positive discrimination, sometimes called affirmative action, is illegal in the UK. There is a common confusion between (illegal) positive discrimination and (legal) positive action. preferential treatment for any group at the point of selection is illegal.

As a ruler, Adolf Hitler of the Nazi party had numerous successes but he also had he fair share of failures. At the beginning of World War II, Hitler was seen as a savior to the German nation because of his oratory skills, appeal to the people and his successes. One of his first successes came when he fulfilled his promises to the German people and reversed the Treaty of Versailles. After the death of Hindenburg in 1934, Hitler was seen as the successor. The German public saw Hitler as god-like with his vast power and glorifying the German race as being the “master race.” When he finally reversed the power of the Treaty of Versailles and rebuilt Germany’s armed forces, the German nation basically did as he told them to do.
The government has created a form of discrimination to combat previous discrimination; this is not even a levelheaded thought, programs and or laws supporting it such as Affirmative Action are immoral and should be abolished. How reverse racism negatively impacts Americans. Discrimination has been affecting America and its citizens for as long as we have been a country. From the Civil war to the Civil Rights movement to present day, it is an infectious plague. Today, hundreds of thousands of less qualified citizens are hired for jobs over other citizens, who are more than qualified for that position, all because of race (www.adversity.net).
