Fritz sauckel was a close friend to speer but also was a german nazi politician. Each of these witnesses are here to testify that my client had no intention on using his human labor camp to create a crime of humanity. As i conclude this case, we would ask you to find that my client is innocent. The prosecution has not met its burden of proof, and we would ask for a verdict of not guilty. Albert Speer wasn 't a good man and he did many wrongful things in his lifetime but he is not guilty of crimes against humanity.
The doctrine didn’t make great change at it’s time but was revived during Polk’s presidency and eventually became an important national principle. The War of 1812 was a result of the events that occurred during Britain’s conflicts with France. America declared itself a sovereign nation during the conflicts between Britain and France but the British still punished the nation through the Orders in Council and impressment. The practice of impressment combined with American embargo policies pushed America to declare war on Britain in 1812 because Britain showed no respect for America’s sovereignty and proved that it wouldn’t change it’s restrictive trading policies despite America’s peaceful attempts. America declared war on Britain in 1812 largely because of Britain’s practice of impressment.
In line with the UK’s priorities, EFTA involved no loss of national sovereignty but it eventually became clear that EFTA was not beneficial to the UK economically, as it did not provide access to any large markets. In this period, Britain was also engaged in the decolonisation process and its international economic and political position was suffering considerable deterioration. Humiliation at Suez in 1956 confirmed that Britain was no longer a world power. ‘Britain had excluded itself from a dynamic Customs Union of 170 million’ and its access to the European market was impeded by the common external tariff. (Dedman, 2010) Moreover, the UK was in danger of becoming politically isolated.
As well as Harriet Tubman was the most celebrated member of the Underground Railroad. She returned to the south nineteen times to help around three hundred fugitive slaves. She never lost a passenger. In addition to hearing about the Underground Railroad in class this documentary also allowed me to learn more in depth details. Such as one hundred thousand runaway slaves were estimated to have runaway between 1800-1810, it was estimated they were collectively worth thirty million.
Historian Allan Mitchell writes that Bonapartism was “a model for Bismarckian politics”. There is evidence that shows that Bismarck was indeed influenced by the way Napoleon III ruled in a fast changing society racked by tension between bourgeoisie and proletariat. Historian classify Bismarckism as Bonapartist as he never founded his own political movement and avoided becoming dependant on retaining confidence of the monarchy. Furthermore, there were some smaller German states that agreed with “Bonapartism” as they saw it as a desire to revise in a reactionary sense the constitution given in 1848. This is significant as Bismarck would have needed to appeal to all German states any by incorporating Bonapartist views into his policy he would be appealing to the smaller states, which in turn would support
The methods used include propaganda, promises, and scapegoating as well as the measures taken following the election in 1930. To begin with, in order to understand how Hitler was able to rise to power in Germany, it is important to analyze the circumstances that the country found itself in. When the Versailles Treaty was signed in 1919, Germany felt itself treated deeply unfairly. It had not been invited to the peace talks, and nearly none of the 14 points set
Naturally there’s a sense of uneasiness to open up in cooperation between the American company and the German company after being enemies in World War II and being in a complicated relationship during the Cold War. Daimler chairman Jurgen Schrempp didn’t improve the situation of the merger by hiding objectives from German hierarchical and order structure to change senior management and production practices. Nor did Chrysler CEO Robert Eaton take adequate precautions in negotiations to preserve vital aspects of his company. Clarifying would’ve improved the outcome by allowing both companies to understand the objectives desired from both sides and collaborate toward undertaking tasks to satisfy the desires of both parties (Hierarchical Taxonomy of Leadership Behavior, pp. 19).
Another point was the third point that “Tariffs and other economic barriers among nations should be lowered or abolished in order to foster free trade.” This third point discusses about establishing fair trade conditions among nations. The U.S. had fairly good trading relations with the British and the French and even Germany. However, when the war came, the British set up a blockade that prevented any trade with Germany or the German’s
Looking back at the early 1930’s, there are many people today who would criticize the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain with his policy of appeasement towards the Natzi leader, Adolf Hitler. Appeasement is defined as “the policy of acceding to the demands of a potentially hostile nation in the hope of maintaining peace.” However, historians now know that peace was never an option for the German leader. His invasion of the Rhineland and Austria was only the beginning; Hitler had his eyes set on Poland, Russia and eventually the world. Chamberlain has been heavily criticized for simply handing over the Sudetenland because this action showed that Hitler had the upper hand. It helped the Natzis become much more powerful, encouraged aggression,
Germany was not allowed to join the League of nations until 1926. Germany was greatly disadvantaged, because it couldn’t protect it’s citizens from outside threats, and was humiliated due to the rigorous demands of the treaty of Versailles, and the terrible loss of the war. Germany was no longer seen as powerful by the other nations, since it couldn’t even join the league of nations until 7 years after it was established. The United States, the nation that created the League of nations abandoned it to focus on itself. Which didn’t raise much question when Hitler ordered the German delegates to leave the League of nations that they were only a part of because they forced themselves in.

“The Federalists saw the economic future in manufacturing, but not political role of “common man.” Little faith in democracy.” “Republicans saw political future of “common man” participating in republic, Faith in the new democracy, but failed to see that farming was not economic future.” (Class notes) Each group had ideas that needed support from one another. Because the two only found division and conflict even in situations of unitedness a division was evident. The tension intensified with the Quasi war between France and boiled over when freedom of speech was made illegal with the Alien and Sedition acts. Which was later condemned by the Virginia and Kentucky
Some of the things that happened soon after they passed the Stamp Act was colonial resistance. Colonists did not want to be taxed on a war they didn 't even fight in or have a say in. The war was France and Britain fighting over who got control over North America. All the colonists were doing was living there and the war did not involve them. Also, violators of the Stamp Act could be tried and convicted without juries in the vice-admiralty courts.
Another key contrast for the president from a monarch was in the fact that the president was first not only “elected by fellow citizens, [but also] subject to potential impeachment” (Amar, p. 145). Through its Constitution America broke all traditions for previous important heads of government such as shown in “British law [which] had no regularized legal [way] for ousting a bad king” (Amar, p. 199). Amar goes on to implicitly state that “the monarch himself was immune from impeachment” (Amar, p. 199). The goal for America was to differ from the way that Europe passed power through heredity without the need for or basis of merit. One way Article II of the Constitution specifically aimed to prohibit the immediate passing from father to son was through an age requirement set at thirty-five, which also gave those voting for a candidate time to judge his worthiness.
In the chapter “Don’t Get Mad; Don’t Get Even; Get Ahead” Matthews discusses ways one cannot waste energy trying to get back at an enemy. It states how one should focus efforts on getting simply ahead of the enemy. The chapter cites the dilemma of former Speaker Newt Gingrich who attempted to shut down various government institutions after Bill Clinton forced him to exit Air Force One from the back. All this did was ruin Gingrich 's political spine. Others like Pat Sullivan, who helped Herbie win but did not receive help in return, tried to get even but fail in an eight year struggle.
