Europeans turned on their friends because of the poisonous message the government was preaching. During the Holocaust, Jews and Germans used armed and unarmed forms of resistance to retain their humanity. Oskar Schindler, a rich german man, help save thousands of lives without armed forces. Unarmed forms of resistance can be just as, or better than, armed resistance. “During World War II, Schindler rescued more than 1,000 Jews from deportation to Auschwitz, Nazi
While Hitler had charisma, Churchill did not. According to Andrew Robert the truth is that Hitler exerted far more power over people’s imaginations and psyches than ever Churchill did. Hitler made use of two most powerful human emotions envy and resentment. After Germany lost the First World War and the ill treatment in the subsequent Versailles peace treaty, it was a downhill task to induce self-pity in the German people. And, Hitler quite well succeeded in this.
Roosevelt was able to both give amazing speeches and accomplish the goals he spoke of throughout his time in office. Landing the position of presidency by chance after Mckinley’s assassination, Roosevelt felt responsible to follow the deceased president’s vision, “So not to upset a nation in mourning.” (“Theodore Roosevelt"). This was a encouraging start to Roosevelt 's presidency, reassuring the people there would not be any major changes. At the beginning of his presidency in 1902, the country was at risk of losing heat due to the coal strike and shortage. Roosevelt ended the strike by telling the miners and its owners that he would use the army to continue coal production.

The last relief program made was the (WPA) Works Progress Administration was the largest and most ambitious American New Deal agency, employing millions of unemployed people (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works
“The worldwide depression that followed the 1929 U.S. stock market crash… millions of people lost their jobs. It all made for fertile ground for Hitler’s radical nationalist ideology… to give all germans jobs and food and make them proud to be german again.” This gave leeway for Hitler seeing as his identity now consisted of one of the main helpers that helped the germans in time of need. Furthermore increasing his vote pool and later being appointed chancellor by President Hindenburg in the year 1933. So now you see, that it was all part of his plan, to make the people think he was a great man and later see him do to actions only for Germans, that severely damaged their economy and safety. Whomever was to blame for Adolf Hitler’s power is now gone, but there are now smarter people and more experienced people now then there was then.
As the Great Depression chewed up and spit out the American people, they turned to the federal government for help when all hope was lost; however, President Herbert Hoover was a strong believer in the old-time individualism of “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps,” and that pride came from picking yourself up and dusting yourself off, but the suffering, impoverished Americans that were unemployed and stripped of their possessions and hard earned money had no one else to turn to and Hoover was only willing to help the big businesses. Hoovervilles, full of shacks built from garbage, Hoover flags, otherwise known as empty American pockets, Hoover blankets or newspapers used to shield Americans from the cold, and Hoover leather, the sad, reused cardboard replacement for worn out old shoe soles, became national symbols by 1932 when President Hoover was
The film Schindler 's List stands among the most successful and noteworthy Holocaust films of the twentieth century. It portrays the moral development of one Oskar Schindler, a rising Nazi businessman, who saved roughly one thousand Jewish prisoners of the Krakow Ghetto by employing them at his factory. By heavily bribing Nazi officials and outsourcing his production, Schindler was able to his deem his Jewish workers essential to the war effort, saving them from otherwise certain death. Like all films, Schindler 's List has its strengths and weaknesses. The director 's decision to begin in full color with candles which fade into black and white not only helps the viewer enter a solemn and serious mindset, but it also minimizes distractions as to focus solely on the film 's message while the story unfolds.
When Hitler became the Fuhrer of Germany, Germans became more comfortable with how the future of their country would turn out. Hitler had created many policies when he first became Fuhrer. What this did for the Germans is create a safer presence in Germany and built up the confidence of them. One example of this is when Hitler rejected the Treaty of Versailles. The people finally felt free from power of France and instantly loved Hitler for this action.
The Great Depression dominated the 1930s. The despair of the poor and unemployed eventually turned to hope as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt initiated the New Deal, an "alphabet soup" of programs designed to boost the economy through public works programs and other federal intervention. The failed experiment of Prohibition would end in 1934. Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party came to power in Germany; Benito Mussolini 's Fascists expanded Italy 's empire, and Francisco Franco 's Falangists brought their own version of fascism to Spain. Before the decade ended, Europe would descend into war for the second time in the century.
After the war ended in 1918, Hitler felt he had nothing to keep him busy; no goal. He joined other army veterans and continued to fight in the streets of Germany, until the spring of 1919. Hitler had then been employed as a political officer for the army of Munich, with the help of another soldier named Ernst Roehm, who later became head of Hitler’s elite soldiers, known as the SA. With his new rank, Hitler attended several meetings of the German Workers’ party, a nationalist, socialist, anti-Semitic group. Hitler quickly distinguished himself as the party’s most immersive and popular propagandist.
Herbert Hoover was President at the beginning of the Great Depression, Underestimating the seriousness of the crisis and he called it “a passing incident in our national lives” and assured Americans that it would be over in 60 days.

On the other hand, Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared that he was going to attack the Great Depression, The government passed the Emergency Banking Relief Act. That act made banking more stabilized and more out of the depression.
From whipping, tar and feathering, and even hanging, the KKK was ruthless. However, by 1925, it was discovered that the KKK was a fraud and very corrupted. This caused the Klan’s influence and membership to decline expeditiously. Notwithstanding, the events that occurred in the 1920’s still had a positive effect on the lives of Americans because social reform during this time was the only reason why the KKK shrunk in size in the first place. Many people were able to become
