The book, The Devil and the Jews: The Medieval Conception of the Jew and Its relation to Modern Anti-Semitism by Joshua Trachtenberg was published in 1943. At a time when anti-Semitism was rampant, Trachtenberg writes about the origins of Christianity’s animosity towards the Jews. Trachtenberg explains the ways the Christians created fear and hatred for the Jews during the medieval ages. The perception of the Jews during that period was never fully cleared and became the basis for modern prejudices. “Antisemitism is not an invention of Hitler’s.

The result of the 1945 election was a shock to not only the people of Britain but also the parliamentary parties, one of the main reasons thought to have led to Labour’s victory, was Churchill’s radio broadcast, in which he stated socialism could not be established without a ‘Gestapo’. Source one, an extract from Margaret Thatcher’s book, explains her thoughts when listening to Churchill’s 1945 radio broadcast. Thatcher believes Churchill said was correct in what he said, but his use of the word ‘Gestapo’ was inappropriate, and wasn’t particularly helpful for post-war Britain. However it could be argued Thatcher knew that what Churchill said was a mistake, but as she was part of the same conservative party as he was, she couldn’t admit it. Although, she does admit even she was shocked when listening to the speech, as she explains “the line was not believable”.
3) Account for the successes and failures of democracy in Germany in the period 1918/1933 The Weimer Republic was doomed to failure from the outset. The quote from historian and journalist Sefton Delmar “Germany democracy was born with a hole in its heart”, has immense accuracy when post-war Germany is evaluated. The creation of a completely new and foreign form of government aggravated Germany’s post war position. Struggling with political, economic and social strife by the end of WWI, did not allow for a powerful government to be formed. The crucial weakness of the Weimer republic lay not in the strength of its enemies but in the striking absence of its friends.
She was taunting him saying that she was pregnant and no one could ever tell if it was his or not. Maxim’s temper raised and he pulled out the gun and shot her. Not remembering how much blood there was, he placed her body on the cabin floor, cleaned up, and got rid of the boat (with her body in it ) by sending it out into the sea. How does the narrator react to Maxim’s confession? She is numb.
Clemenceau resented Wilson’s generous attitude towards Germany and Lloyd George’s desire to not treat Germany too harshly. He said “if they British are so anxious to appease Germany they should look overseas and make colonial, naval or commercial concessions”. These disagreements left the big three unsatisfied and ultimately left them with a weak mere shadow of a perhaps great treaty due to their own arrogance and. It contained many faults and weaknesses. The treaty of Versailles greatly humiliated Germany forcing it to accept soul responsibility for the war.
“Assess the view that the collapse of the Weimar Republic was primarily due to the appeal of Hitler and his Nazi party” The Weimar Republic government was riddled with weakness and incompetence in a variety of crucial social, economic and political areas. This caused the influence of the Nazi Party, which through its charismatic and nationalistic leader, Adolf Hitler, it gained a large amount of support. However it was due to the Weimar Republic’s own failings that the Nazi Party became appealing and as a result the Weimar Republic was brought to its inevitable demise in 1933 with Hitler ready to take the reigns. When the Treaty of the Versailles was signed in 1919, the government was making a very unpopular decision amongst the citizens, as it a result lead to the downfall of the Weimar Republic. The Treaty caused humiliation and shock amongst the citizens of the country, much of the political backlash was due to the fact that the Allies were dictating to Germany the harsh terms of the war reparations, which was seen as absurd by many citizens as they did not feel as if they were responsible for starting the war nor did they feel as though they had lost.
David Zheng Mr. Gutmann AP literature November 27, 2012 The Impact of The First Person Narrative Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front, a fictional account of the Great War, articulates the individual’s struggle against overbearing forces outside of his realm of control. The various countries involved in the complex war, especially Germany, blindly lodge into a conflict so grand that a “lost generation” conceives. The corrupt yet patriotic members of the older generation in Germany impose their fatalistic ideals on the younger generation, which inevitably crumbles under the gruesome nature of war. In the wake of the soldiers walks death, which garners fear in them to the extent of taking up violence as a means to extinguish it. Remarque employs the first person narrative and allows readers to follow the accounts of Paul Baumer, an
The Holocaust was the result of Hitler's long held grand design to peruse a programme of annihilation against the Jews'. How Valid is this assessment of the Holocaust The validity of statements such as this has sparked great debate among historians and academics alike. Centering around the ongoing discussion of whether the Nazi government were fulfilling a long standing scheme in eradicating European Jewry, or that the Holocaust was in fact the result of unplanned incidental events This clear divide in ideology stands between two groups Intentionalists and Structuralists. While extremities of each interpretation can vary among historians, the general principles of each argument remain compatible Intentionalits are those convinced that from a relatively early period his rise To power, Adolf Hitler had schemed to kill the Jewish population in Europe. Intentionalists believe that the eradication of the Jews and ultimately the holocaust was all part of Adolf Hitler’s grand design, and that he would stop at nothing until his design was completed.
The narrator is not afraid to speak his mind throughout the book by leaving a trail of witty or sarcastic remarks and even says, “It kills me sometimes, the way people die” (464). This quote can not be taken literally, but it can be taken to heart if the readers are not a fan or the narrator. Another example of New Historicism is when the book changes culture. Normally, in Germany from 1939-1942, the culture is to hate the Jewish religion and all who believe in it. The narrator says, “The Germans in basements were pitiable,
