It is true that Czerniakow appointed other assimilated Jews to important positions, such as Joseph Szerynski—a police officer who had converted to Christianity—whom Czerniakow made commander of the ghetto police. However, unlike other Judenrat chairmen, Czerniakow did not use his position for personal gain, and would only go so far in cooperating with Nazi demands. The Germans began a two-month wave of deportations to the Treblinka Extermination Camp during the summer of 1942. On July 22 Czerniakow was ordered to round up Jews for "resettlement in the east." He knew what that innocuous term really meant, and was not prepared to surrender the Jews of his ghetto to certain death.
The Decree Excluding Jews from German Economic Life prevented Jews from running businesses. Also, decrees excluding Jews from public places were made, with all Jewish pupils becoming ecpelled (15th Nov 1938). Also, a collective fine of 1 billion marks was levied on the Jewish community for the Paris murder, meaning 30000 Jewish men were rounded up and sent to concentration camps. The Consequences of 'Anschluss' The levels of violence in Austria against the Jews were far worse than in Germany. Vienna's 180000 Jews were the targets of regular attacks.
One action that the world could have done to save the Jews is the government could have changed the immigration laws. Although thousands of Jews had been admitted into the United States under the combined German-Austrian quota from 1938-1941, the United States did not pursue an organized or a specific rescue policy for Jewish victims of the Holocaust until early 1944. If they did pursue that policy when the Holocaust was happening, they could of saved so many of the Jewish lives. Another action that the world could have done to save the Jews is if Pope Pius XII had publicly condemned the Nazi campaign of wiping out all the Jews. This was happening during the Second World War.
In the United States a number of prominent leaders and organizations established fundraising drives for the remnants of the "Starving Armenians". In Europe the Allied Powers gave public notice that they would hold personally responsible all members of the Turkish government and others who had planned or participated in the massacres. Yet, within a few years, these same governments and statesmen turned away from the Armenians in total disregard of their pledges. Soon the Armenian genocide had become the "Forgotten Genocide". In effect, the Turkish government had succeeded in its diabolical plan to exterminate the Armenian population from what is now Turkey.
The residents worked 12 hour days in order to produce a range of products from textiles to weaponry; overall Ghettos provided Germany with a 2.2 million mark profit to help fight the war and Ghettos played a massive part of Germany’s success. Ghettos were not only set to help build the German empire but also to protect the German ‘superior race’ from the ‘disgusting and vile’ Jewish population who were blamed responsible for the spotted fever. A hack-Bourne disease in the skin which 92% of the reported cases were Jewish victims and due to their ‘bad habits’ they had become immune meaning 90% of
He was the one giving out the orders and dehumanizing the Jews. He was abusing the power his people gave him by doing all of these things. He could have put a stop to it just like Zimbardo but he didn’t. Just like in the story it took an outside force to stop all of
The Armenian people had a lot to move on from. Almost all their population was wiped out. The Kurdish Genocide was centrally planned and administered by the Iraqi Government against the entire Kurdish population. In Sarafian Fernandes’ paper “After 16 March 1988, one word came to symbolize the tragedy of the Kurds -- Halabja. Halabja is the Kurdish Auschwitz; not because the scale of the massacre was comparable with that of the Nazi death camp, but because the victims were chosen merely because they were Kurdish civilians.” In the beginning before the genocide, Armenians, Kurds and Turks lived in relative harmony in the Ottoman Empire for centuries.
(How many people died in WWII altogether, n.d.) Of these deaths, 39,366 Australian military and 735 civilian deaths were accumulated, whilst in Germany there were estimates of just under 7.4 million deaths. (How Many People Died In World War 2, n.d.) The number of deaths caused by World War II alone is enough to portray the devastating effects that war has on human life. In this poem by an unnamed author it says “There are no winners in war – Everyone cries. There are no winners in war – Everyone dies.” (No winners, a war poetry, n.d.) This poem states that war is pretty much pointless because the country only loses their own men which are more important than what they are seeking. How could anyone feel like a winner knowing that 50 million soldiers died on the battlefield?
Deportation: The ways that the Ottoman Empire managed to deport the Greeks came in many forms. They had the Greeks transported, which was mostly on foot in the death marches. These death marches along with other methods of deportation led to over 500,000 Greeks being deported by 1918, which only held a few survivors. These acts were referred to as "white massacres". According to the official Ottoman documents, around January 1919 the Ottoman government allowed some of the Greeks who were deported to return.
Therefore the only viable option was to relent to their demands, and on 6 March 1943 Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels gave orders for the release of seventeen hundred intermarried Jews. Resistance from within the Catholic Church similarly directed vocal opposition and protest towards Nazi policies of euthanasia. The Catholic bishop of Munster, Clemens von Galen publicly denounced euthanasia through a number of sermons in July and August of 1941, and in the process gathered widespread support for his cause. As Galen was widely respected and supported by Germans the Nazi regime could not simply ‘eliminate’ him, as they had others, without causing considerable unrest. So as they had with the Rosenstrasse protests, they sought to appease the public, and Hitler ordered a stop to euthanasia in late
