After assassinating the sixteenth president of the United States, Booth left behind a legacy of being a villain and a murderer. One action erased the rest of his life of being an actor.

In many ways the United States was more united than ever, but their was also some problems that arose. Immigrants were treated unfairly as I learned in the book. "The greatest target of abuse was the German American community" (Brinkley 535). Another huge impact of the war was the men that had died.

Heinrich Himmler (1900-1945) was the Reich Leader (Reichsführer) of the formidable SS of the Nazi party from 1929 until 1945. Himmler oversaw a vast ideological and bureaucratic empire that defined him for many both inside and outside the Nazi party as the second most powerful man in Germany during World War II. Heinrich Himmler was viewed as the prime architect for the planning and implementation for the Holocaust due to the effect of his social view on the design and his role as Head of the SS and Security to implement the Final Solution. Heinrich Himmler’s view of non-Aryan people, especially Jews was a significant factor in the planning of the Holocaust. Himmler was an avid believer in racial purity which first started in 1922 when Himmler was 22 where he began to see himself as a “True Aryan” (Longerich,

The bitter defeat of Germany in the World War 1 and the humiliating Treaty of Versailles gave rise to an indigenous and extreme form of fascism in Germany called Nazism. This ideology leads to one of the worst genocide in the history of mankind, known as The Holocaust, in which approximately six million Jews were killed by the Nazi regime under the command of Adolf Hitler and its collaborators. These killings took place throughout Nazi Germany and German occupied territories. During and after World War ll, i.e., between 1941- 1945, Jews were targeted and methodically murdered in the largest genocide of the 20th cent.

The death camps were places where the detainees would be taken into chambers where toxic gas would be released and the prisoners would just drop dead. The “Final Solution” was one of the key elements that the Nazi Society believed in. Though at the beginning of the Nazi occupation of Europe work camps were the places where the prisoners were forced to work long grueling hours, later in the occupation they started to use death camps to help them in the “Final Solution”. According to the U.S Holocaust Memorial Museum, “Millions of people were imprisoned and abused in the various types of Nazi camps. Under SS management, the Germans and their collaborators murdered more than three million Jews in the killing centers alone.
Concentration Camps Concentration Camps were used for jews, and were made by the nazis.The Holocaust began in the 1933 when Adolf Hitler came to power.

Holocaust Definition: The Holocaust was an event some people call ‘Hell on Earth’. It was a time where very few people were safe. The Holocaust started when Hitler gained power in Germany in 1941 and led the Nazis in a mass murder. One by one the Nazis tried to clear out the population of not only Jewish people, but also the mentally and physically disabled, gypsies, and homosexuals; more than 6 million people were killed. It was a time where you were told how you should act and what you should believe and if you chose to be different you were tortured and killed (Holocaust Encyclopedia).
A genocide is the the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation, the Holocaust and the Cambodian Genocide are examples of this. After the Holocaust, in 1945 the United Nations realized that genocides were a continuously happening. They realized they needed to prevent genocides and global conflict in general. The Holocaust began on January 30, 1933 when Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany and ended May 8, 1945 when the war officially ended. During this time 6,000,000 Jews were killed, not by war, but rather at the hands of Germany.
