In June of 1918, the country of Germany cheered for their young pilot Hermann Wilhelm Goering, as he received the Ordre Pour Le Merite, which honoured him for destroying more than eight enemy aircraft in battle. This was only one of the many awards he would receive during his lifetime. No one could’ve possibly guessed the dark path young Goering would choose in his future, in which he would become one of Adolf Hitler’s closest supporters and the creator of the Gestapo, the infamous secret service. Born January 1st in 1893, he was the fourth son of five children, a child of his father’s second wife. He was sent to military school and graduated with honours, joining the German army in 1912.

These full body scanners, which Chertoff had a hand in getting into the airports, were “heavily criticized (and little tested)”, and were sold by a company which was a client of Chertoff’s consulting agency (Turley, 3). Another example is Dick Cheney. He was the CEO of Halliburton, a company associated with numerous U.S. war scandals, prior to holding the office of Vice-President. How telling is it that “the company (Halliburton) made $217,199 in campaign contributions in 2004, and in the same year was awarded $8 billion in military contracts” (Newton, 229). According to Turley, hundreds of billions of dollars annually go towards the cost of war, the taxpayers’ money flowing into the arms industry’s pocket, and those agencies and contractors are trying to keep it that way.
Oskar Schindler A man named Oskar Schindler actually saved more than 1,200 Jews in the Holocaust. He persuaded the Nazis to save them and transferring his workers so they don 't suffer the death camps. He is a very brave man for what he did.

CHAPTER ONE The Schutzstaffel Hitler 's reign of power in Germany began January 30, 1933. This was to be the beginning of one of the darkest chapters in modern history. The Schutzstaffel or what is commonly referred to as the SS, was primarily established as a protection squadron and known throughout Nazi Germany as the Black Shirts. The SS was a central organization within the Third Reich 's power structure. This black order was established in 1925 and by 1936 dominated Nazi Germany domestically.

By some miracle, Luftwaffe pilot, Franz Stigler, came across the bomber in his fighter jet. Franz Stigler only needed one more enemy kill to earn his Knight’s Cross, a prestigious award. Instead of destroying the bomber after seeing the terrified crew, Stigler escorted the bomber plane and ensured its safety, saving the lives of his sworn enemy. Franz Stigler is a great example of a person who
The SS established larger camps. All SS units wore the Death-Head symbol on their hats. In Berlin the Columbia Haus facility held prisoners under investigation by the Gestapo until 1936. The Gestapo was the German secret state police. In 1933 the Nazis built a series of concentration camps to imprison and eliminate “enemies of the state”.
“We know that Germany will be free when the Jew has been excluded from the life of the German people”, according to Julius Streicher, who was the founder and publisher of the newspaper, Der Sturmer. Apparently, history repeated itself from the time of the Crusades to the time of the Holocaust since this thought from the Holocaust was like looking into a mirror from the Crusades. During the Holocaust, which was from 1933 until 1945, Hitler led Germany into war. His goal was to make the world exclusively the Aryan race. In order to do so, they tried to kill all of the Jews.
When Adolf Hitler Came to power in January 1933 he used huge amounts of propaganda to immediately turn the Germans away from the Jews, but we all know that don’t we? In January 1933 Hitler was appointed chancellor, the head of the German government and every one believed that they had found a savior for the country. Now at the time Germany was still battling its way out of debt from WWI.

Hitler’s main focus was to “ethnically cleanse” Germany in an attempt to create the perfect race. Since he was able to create his own laws, he decided to create laws that gave Jews few rights, and, with the help of a man named Adolf Eichmann, eventually leading them to be placed in camps called concentration camps. The Holocaust went on for a long time before anyone found out what had been going on causing the effects to be tremendous. Adolf Hitler was appointed as Chancellor of Germany on January 30th, 1933. He created a party called the Nazi party and they later started World War II.
