An international communities miscalculation and oversight, led to disastrous aid that only hurt the country's situation.

These two artist have an incredible way of making the reader sense the environment around them. They both use different ways of describing the places, but that is expected as different places have different characteristics.

The Holocaust was nothing short of mass genocide an entire culture just because they didn’t fit in with a government “vision”, which made them easy scapegoats for the Nazi Regime for problems that came to Germany after the First World War. So when the Holocaust started, many refuges evacuated Germany and parts of Europe for places such as Palestinian, which was once apart of their homeland. But when the new people there, the Arabians, would limit or even try and stop them from getting in, it created a heavy tension that has lasted to this day.
