During the 1930’s and 40’s Nazi Germany was a dictatorship ruled by Adolf Hitler he was a cruel dictator who had a goal to eliminate all european jews this shows in “Law,Justice,and the Holocaust” where it says that he and The Nazis mainly targeted people of the Jewish faith, at the end of the war they successfully killed six million jewish men,women, and children.This event was known as the holocaust. Hitler was a very cruel and hated man by the people who weren’t being schooled by the Nazis.
Millions of people through history have been treated unfairly. During WWII, the Holocaust was one of the greatest atrocities of all time. People were also wrongly accused and punished during the witch trials in Salem that occurred during the 1600s. these two events have differences but they also have similarities as well.
Similarly, the Cambodians and Jews have both stood witness to the executions of one race. During the Cambodian Genocide, Pol Pot the leader, wiped out millions of educated Cambodians who were doctors, teachers, lawyers, bilingual, etc. His overall goal was to make the Kingdom of “Cambodia” a utopian society where everyone was equal and he reigned as king. In fact, the Khmer Rouge rounded up and separated family members to work in different villages in Cambodia. In addition, older men and young boys were sent to fight in the war. Women were distributed across Cambodia either working in kitchens, working fields, or hospitals while their infant children assisted them. Just like Pol Pot, in the Holocaust, Hitler’s goal was to make Germany a country where everyone had the same physical appearance, blue eyes and blonde hair. Unfortunately, Jews did not have that appearance. During the Cambodian Genocide and the Holocaust, the officers beat and prodded the victims that did not meet their expectations and were abruptly displaced from their homes. In comparison to the Cambodians, Germany’s dictator, Adolf Hitler, had one goal to execute all Jews, just like how Pol Pot had a goal to kill all educated Cambodians. Both the Cambodians in the Cambodian Genocide and the Jews in the novel Night were treated similarly because both victims were displaced out of their homes, overworked, mistreated, and starved.
What do the death of over six million Jews and the death of over one and a half million Armenians have in common? Genocide. Genocide is one of the ultimate crimes in modern society and in humanity. While all genocides are horrible events in history they do have some distinct differences from one to another. Genocides tear apart families, ethnicities, and countries while they are are happening and for many years to come. Genocides have eight stages that cause damage in their own ways: Classification, Symbolization, Dehumanization, Organization, Polarization, Preparation, Extermination, and lastly denial. The Armenian genocide and Holocaust are very similar, caused seven and a half million deaths, yet are different in their own way.
After being named Chancellor, Hitler began what is known as the Holocaust. The Holocaust started on January 30, 1933 and lasted until May 8, 1945. The Holocaust was the mass murder of 6 million Jews (1.5 million of them being children). The Germans started burning the books that the Jews had written, removing Jews from their occupations and their schools, and taking their businesses and properties(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The Jews were forced from their houses to go to live in ghettos away from all society(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The ghettos were surrounded by barbed wire and high walls so the Jews couldn’t leave(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The German Army took up the western half of Poland in 1939(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The Army expanded Hitler’s empire in the spring and summer of 1940(An Introductory History of the Holocaust- Jewish Virtual Library). They had conquered Norway, Denmark, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, and Luxemburg(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). After German religious leaders protested, Hitler put an end to the Holocaust in August 1941(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). In 1933, Jews in Germany were about 525,000 (1%) of the total German population(The Holocaust-World War 2). Between 1933 and 1939, hundreds of thousands of the Jews who could leave Germany, did, those who couldn’t, stayed in fear(The Holocaust-World War 2). Evidence has shown hatred towards the Jews long before the Holocaust(The Holocaust-World War 2). Hitler blamed the Jews for the defeat of the war in 1918(The Holocaust-World War 2). After the death of President Paul Von Hidenburg in 1934, Hitler made himself Germany’s supreme
“Genocide is an attempt to exterminate a people, not to alter their behavior.” Jack Schwartz. Genocide is mass murder, it happens in all parts of the world. A common known genocide is the Holocaust. Where a group known as the“Nazis” (lead by Hitler) murdered more than six million people (many were Jewish). Another is the Rwandan genocide, the Belgians split Rwanda's tribe as “Hutus” and “Tutsis”, based on the width of their nose. When the Belgians left Rwanda the Tutsis were left in charge. This angered the Hutus so they tried to exterminate them with machetes after they ran out of bullets. Both of these examples are horrible mass killings, very similar, but also very different.
In the Holocaust, Nazi killed numerous people, both Jewish and non- jewish. Hitler was the cause of the Holocaust. Countless people suffered because of Adolf Hitler, the leader of Nazi Germany. There were few survivors in the Holocaust, they went through a lot during that period of time. The people, lived in ghettos and also were transported to concentration camps, where they died from gas chambers, forced labor, etc,. It was a hard time in life for people in Germany.
In WW2 the holocaust clamed 6 million Jews lives, and over 7 million soviets died too and 1.7 million of those soviets were also counted towards the 6 million Jews. The holocaust was a genocide during World War II in when Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany tried to take over then world and also attempted to kill off all the Jews. They would send Jews and people who opposed them to concentration camps where they were either durned or worked till they couldn’t. Night is an autobiography by Elie Wiesel, a holocaust survivor. Auschwitz death camp is a video documentary with oprah winfrey and Elie Wiesel. One thought I had after learning about the holocaust was how crazy to you have to be to try to eliminate an entire religion of people.
The Holocaust was a horrific tragedy which started in January of 1933 and ended in May of 1945, the Holocaust was the mass murder of millions of people. The word was derived from the Greek word that meant Sacrifice to the Gods (Steele 7), also called the Shoan which is the Hebrew word for catastrophe (Steele 7). So many countries took place in this 12-year genocide, including, “Germany, Italy, Japan, Romania, Hungary, and Bulgaria, which were also known as the Axis Powers” (Steele 34). But, although there were all those countries they were all part of one larger group called the Nazis, were the ones who were killing all the different denominations of people. (Bachrach 58). All of this led to the gigantic catastrophe called the Holocaust. The
The Khmer Rouge has taken over Cambodia. This is much like what is happening in the Soviet Union. It may look different but the mass murdering and cruelty has lead both countries into a state which is not looked at kindly. Each country was in the same situation from the standpoint of the citizens. Rights were taken away, torture and cruel deaths occurred, and the death of many was looked at by the powerful as a worthy cause to the country as a whole. These are some of the key similarities of the two countries in their states of distress. But, the biggest point of similarity between the two would be the leaders and how they view the country they are leading. Both Cambodia and the Soviet Union are run by murderous people/groups which have a particular trait in common. They both have vision. Vision for a better country, but neither know how to create better country’s through the growth of their country, both believe that unity and equality is vital among the average person. This creates strife and tension from leader to citizen, unfortunately the result is death to the weaker. We see this outcome in both countries. Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge was responsible
The Cambodian genocide took place from 1975 to 1979; it is estimated that some two million Cambodians were systematically murdered by the Khmer Rouge and its followers (Power 90). In Alexander Hinton’s article, “A Head for an Eye” he recounts in details the experience of Gen, a survivor of the Cambodian Genocide. After the Lon Nol government was overthrown by the Khmer Rouge, the Communists began their witch-hunt in an attempt to identify and kill anyone who was associated with the former regime, as well as the educated, the Vietnamese, the Muslim Cham, the Buddhist monks, and other “bourgeois elements” (Power 101). During the investigation, it was revealed that Gen’s father was a teacher–this fact alone was
The Cambodian Genocide was a tragic event that took place in 1975 and lasted until about 1979. The genocide was led by Pol Pot and the communist party Kampuchea, also knowns as the Khmer Rouge. Millions of people were killed during this catastrophe.
The Holocaust was the mass genocide of mainly Jewish people and the “undesirables”. The jewish people were dehumanized by the Nazis. All of the people that were persecuted in the mass genocide were either placed into death camps, work camps, or the ghetto when waiting to get to a death camp or work camp.
The Holocaust was a genocide in which Adolf Hitler, ruler of the Nazi party, and his associates conducted the mass murder of over six million Jews. Nazi Germany under the dictatorship of Adolf Hitler was responsible for the brutal, inhuman slaughter of the Jews from 1933 to 1945. Many German civilians were ashamed of the callous, blasé and insensitive killings led by their own ruler and therefore deny any knowledge of the events of the Holocaust. Their claims to be unaware of the events of the Holocaust are not valid and are only used as a shield for their pride and dignity.
In history, events of genocide have occurred and humankind has fought to stop them. Such horrific events have occurred across the world; possibly the most horrific event of them all was the Holocaust. Hitler led a dictatorship throughout the entire country of Germany and during this time he had devised a strategy to take over Europe. While ruling his Nazi state and having a world war, Hitler had been running concentration camps secretly throughout his controlled territories. In the camps he had organized a method to systematically eliminate all races he viewed as inferior. Through these dark times and horrific events that occurred in the concentration camps, stories rose from them. These stories have told us of the events that occurred in
