The massacre consisted of mass murder by Japanese troops against the residents of Nanjing, the capital of the Republic of China, which lasted for six weeks. Chinese civilians and disarmed combatants were killed left and right (Document O). Eventually, the lead perpetrators were prosecuted and received the proper punishments.

It all started when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, causing the U.S. citizens to be extremely furious and unite the support of media to create propagandas. The Japanese are portrayed with slanted small eyes and buck teeth- undermining the intelligence of their race; moreover, they were even dehumanized and depicted as animals. The U.S media was very biased when comparing the Chinese to the Japanese. While the Chinese man had an amiable appearance and a slender body, the Japanese had an unpleasant frown on his face and was described as short and stout (Miles). The article “WWII Propaganda: The Influence of Racism” also states that “The Chinese man’s occupation implies that he helps people, while the title of Japanese warrior alludes to danger and disloyalty,” (ibid).
This is partially seen in the movie, The Children of Huang Shi, when George Hogg and Chen Hansheng are discussing the Nationalists and the Communists. In the film, the Japanese armies are attacking China and massacring the people. However, also during that time, the Nationalists and Communists were locked in a civil war. Honor would dictate that these two opposing factions set aside their differences for the time being in order to combat the foreign troops killing their people. However, they care little for honor and choose to continue fighting each other.
Additionally, he let his men violate the Arawak women. All of these awful deeds Columbus did lead the Indians to suicide themselves with cassava poison. The Arawak population drastically decreased until there was none of the original Arawaks or their descendants left on the island. Columbus was not only cruel to the Indians, but also to his crewmen.

These two quotes are saying that the Great Wall cost too many innocent lives by using people as human shields. But the real question is how innocent were these people? And how many of these people chose to fight knowing they would die? With the help of courageous soldiers, the Great Wall helped all of China by keeping the fighting near the wall, and away from the cities. Just imagine how much worse it could have been if the Great Wall weren 't there and the fighting took place in the cities of

Nanking Massacre I was only about 19 when the Japanese soldiers started to come in in December of 1937. As an escape, I along with many others looked for refuge at a camp, resulting in me leaving behind my family. All was well at the camp but one day, while I was outside the camp taking a stroll like I do every day, I was captured by a solider and brought to a nearby pond. Being only 19, I was very confused and frightened, not knowing what to expect and how this all would affect me. I remember feeling my heart pounding through my chest and my hands shaking uncontrollably.
The mindset of the feared Americans was incorrect, but they saw no other option besides internment camps. They were told about the Japanese spies and since it was World War II, the citizens were in a panic. But, the internment camps were not for the best. It affected many Japanese Americans negatively, and ruined businesses and lives. The internment of the Japanese American citizens forced the relocation and incarceration of about 120,000 people.
The Charlie Company 's actions was not a basic war effort just mass murder. The Vietnamese villagers were killed brutally with unjust force and didn’t follow rules put into place about dealing with situations with Vietnamese. Many who lived in the villages were unarmed and even the ones who were shot by military personnel didn’t fight back. According to Document 1, the majority of 300 or 400 people were fired at rapidly by the military . Butch described an innocent child who was shot in the arm and still remained terrified .
That show how racist people are! In the Justice Denied Report, the author writes, “ Widespread ignorance of Japanese Americans contributed to a policy conceived in haste and executed in an atmosphere of fear and anger at Japan.” This shows that Americans were scared of Japanese Americans and they were placed in camps because of this fear. Japan did bomb USA in WWll, but Japanese americans had nothing to do with it, it was their government 's decisions not theirs. Even known that there was no spies we should still be scared. By scared i don’t mean to lock up Japaneses like what the U.S. did in
The Nazi Concentration camp was made to kill the Jews or make them work until they can no longer usually it was both they would work you until you couldn 't work anymore then they would kill you. Although people would say they were the same because the people in the camps were still taken from their homes forcefully, and they were both treated like dirt but people in Japanese Internment camps were never going to the camp to die, unlike the Nazi camps, we only did that so that we could move them away from some of the crucial resource areas. The Japanese-Americans we settled very close to some very important resource facilities crucial for the war and didn 't want to risk an attack. Japanese Internment camps and Nazi Concentration camps are two very different things. They were different because Japanese Internment camps were made to just move the Japanese until they could have houses for them.Nazi Concentration camps were made to work and then kill the
For example, millions of people died due to the Nazi Concentration Camps while the casualties due to the Japanese Internment Camps were few. Hitler was ruthless, and when it came to the fate of millions of innocent people, he sent those useless to him to die. While people did die due to the Japanese Internment Camps, the American government didn’t intend to kill anyone and it wasn’t their first priority to kill the Japanese-Americans. In addition to this, the country of Israel was created for Jewish people who survived the Holocaust yet those who survived the Japanese Internment Camps were left to start their life all over again. Though it still causes fighting today, the country of Israel was created to serve as a home for those who survived the Holocaust since no one else was willing to take them in.
