The Crucible Fear has effected much of history. Many of these events in history are very similar. One of the biggest examples in history would be The Holocaust. An example would be the Salem witch trails which were depicted in the book The Crucible by Arthur Miller. The Crucible and The Holocaust are related because one person was to blame for the mass hysteria, there was one person in power, fear was used to control the people and many people were wrongly punished.
Social 20-1 Final Position Paper Jasvin Nijhar “ The 20th century has been, witness to countless acts of inhumanity in the name of ‘nation’. Nationalism has given voice and self-determination to many oppressed peoples but it has also given rise to racism and genocide. How do we weight the positives against the magnitude of the negative? Nationalism has a evil side and it should be the responsibility of all humanity to insure it does not rear its ugly head.” It is in common knowledge that Genocide primarily originated from Ultranationalism. Nationalism exists when citizens of a nation feel a sense of pride, devotion and patriotism to their country.
Out of the two world wars, World War II is known to be the bloodiest and brutal war. The main reason this is to believed is because to the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the time period where many were persecuted for their beliefs and race. Hitler is who is to blame for the Holocaust, he is the one who organized all the horrific things done to the people who did not fall under his Master Race. Despite the many theories about the purpose of the Holocaust, the real purpose make those who weren’t members of the Master Race fear the Nazi Regime, to force them to obey the Nazi’s without question.
Both groups of people were automatically classified with the sinister acts and people of their land, and weren 't given chances to be known as individual people. I feel that the treatment of the German Americans was slightly worse, since it happened at an earlier era, and there wasn 't as many laws and protection towards immigrants as there is now. I do believe that Islam and Arab Americans are treated extremely unfairly with unnecessary precautions in current today, especially since the government was much more developed and morally right than it was earlier. In conclusion, both German Americans and Islam and Arab Americans were treated in similar, harsh and unreasonable ways. It 's quite ironic that the people of the United States discriminate against people just because of where they came from, even though the people of America have committed a mass genocide which nearly killed off a total race.
Avrutin notes that up until about fifty years ago, many historians were puzzled by how quickly the pogroms broke out, and how all the pogroms occurred simultaneously. It was a very commonly held idea that the government conspired against the Jews and did not come to their security or condone the pogroms at all. Therefore, it would make sense that people would instantly believe that the Pogroms must have been organized by some greater power like the Russian
The Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide are the two of the most tragic deaths of the world. The Holocaust is the most impactful genocide today. While both are tragic and sorrowful the Holocaust’s time period, death count, and location is why it’s most impactful today. The Holocaust occurred in Germany after World War II. This was easily kept silent, because there were so many bypassers.
Is the Treaty of Versailles to blame for World War Two? Yes, the treaty of Versailles did cause World War Two as it caused Germany to lose land, made Germany pay reparations, had Garmany take the blame for the war, and restricted Germany’s army. The first way the Treaty of Versailles caused World War Two is that Germany lost land. As shown in Doc A, Germany lost Alsace and Lorraine, and with the lost land Germany also lost forty percent
The Cold War was a period characterised by the pervasive ideological conflict between communism and capitalism and the global uncertainty this produced. It stemmed from the horror of WWII, in particular the Holocaust as well as the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the wake of the atomic bomb. The sheer scale and inhumanity of these atrocities spurred a global shift in thinking, forcing people to reevaluate their understanding of a world in which such horrors could readily occur. For many this in turn led to a sense of moral confusion and universal meaninglessness, exemplified in the resurgence of philosophies like existentialism, nihilism and absurdism. In other words, metanarratives like religion and science had been unable to prevent the horrors of WWII, or create a better society afterwards, and these philosophies appealed to the sense of failure and confusion that this induced, justifying the chaos by declaring it meaningless.
foreign and domestic policies because it scared Americans and caused tension within the country and worldwide, leading to a lack of trust within the country. The second Red Scare, propaganda, Russian growth in power, nuclear tension, and the Hollywood Ten were all parts of the war that damaged American policies. Civilians lost trust between one another and within the government. Communism intimidated many people, and the Cold War made it appear as though it would soon take over the world. However, Truman and Eisenhower made it evident that the United States was fighting for innocent civilians worldwide, but they could not promise a steady government or country while the tension exists with Russia, but the nation is doing what they must(Document C).
The Germans also hated the loss of territory. Germany lost a tenth of its land and they claimed that the treaty was simply an attempt to destroy their economy. The Treaty forced German people to live in other countries. The people of Saar disliked the settlement much as most of them were Germans who obviously didn’t want to be ruled by the Allies for 15 years. Germans were also angry that they could not unite with the Austrian Germans.
The main reasons to why this atrocity happens in our world is because of: authority figures that lead and encourage these killers, the ethnic tension between folk, and the propaganda that is fed to everyone to make them believe that slaughtering them is the right thing to do. The authority involved in these genocides inspire these events to occur by convincing the killers that they are not the ones taking fault for their actions. One way that the authority can manipulate these people, are by taking advantage of the ethnic tension that is between the groups of people. That ethnic tension is usually the result of propaganda that is fed to at least one side, and with enough propaganda, it is very easy to cause a mass-hysteria and make them believe a certain way. It is important for the reader to learn why this heinous act occurs, so they can spread their knowledge and be able to identify when and where a leader is trying to hypnotize the people into slaughtering thousands of people; they can then put an end to something before it ever takes place.
One way that the Treaty of Versailles treated Germany harshly was the way that it reduced their army. After the date of March 31, 1920, Germany wasn’t allowed to have over one hundred thousand soldiers in its army, (Doc B) Germany would more than likely be furious because what if they were attacked? They felt vulnerable to everyone. France is right next to Germany, and refuse to let them have any military forces at the border. (Doc A) Germany is even more defenseless and they have to obey by what France tells them.
The holocaust caused a lot of trauma, for many people and races, and is still affecting people and their families today. With all the terrible burning, freezing, injections, and surgeries, it 's hard to realize that things like that actually happened. To today’s standards, all of the things that they did during World War II would be considered illegal in most countries. Especially under most cruel and unusual laws, if any of this were to happen in the United
World War I and World War II both left European states in ruins, many civilians devastated, the most casualties seen in any war and the economy in shambles. Consequently, the decline of entire empires left many people with confused identities, as these countries were acquired by other countries. The wars would have also established the formation of alliances. The aftermath forced world leaders to take on the task of reconstructing what had been destroyed. These leaders knew that the peace they had sought out in the postwar era was only temporary, but little did they know that the settlements of the First Great War would lead to another war, much more destructive than the previous one.
