Article 232 and 233 states that Germany had to pay for all the damage they caused in WWI and the amount was finalized by the other countries. Germany did not want to pay any of the reparations because they did not agree that they should take full responsibility for the war. Angry Germans helped Hitler into power more than before because he stopped all the payments. These articles made the German people angry and yet again look to Hitler for leadership, by looking to him, he made the decision to stop all the payment being made. By ending payments, Germany made what the Treaty of Versailles says was broken and therefore starts to get the countries who are supposed to get money from Germany angry, so now the Treaty of Versailles made Germany angry.

The history of Jewish persecution began as early as biblical times. However, Jewish persecution is far different from what it once was. In biblical times, the Jews faced geographical and attitude-driven hate, but modern anti-semitism started in the years preceding World War II. Today, Jewish persecution has become much more globalized, as anti-semitism has evolved into hatred based on prejudices, conspiracy theories, geological differences, and countless more reasonings. In Poland, for example “both government and citizens are denying their involvement as a country in the holocaust.”
The Helmuth Huebener Group Hitler was an expert of deception. Most German citizens were left in the dark about the war for years due to the use of propaganda, although a few very brave Resistance fighters fought back to this propaganda. Through leaflets to lethal force, Resistance fighters continually tried to spread the truth about Hitler. Helmuth Hubener and his friends were very brave Resistance fighters who tried to expose Hitler’s propaganda. Hitler was able to deceive German citizens throughout the Holocaust; and even during the last few months of the Holocaust, many Germans still believed that Germany was winning the war.
Alliances are “a formal agreement or treaty between two or more nations to cooperate for specific purposes” (Dictionary). The first ever know alliance is dated back all the way to 502 BC.

Many innocent people are affected by Anti-semitism causing it to be a global issue. The play The Crucible has similar issues that have to be dealt with as the play goes along. Both anti-semitism and The Crucible deal with major affairs that are still faced today.
The Wicker man is an extreme case, but there are other films like Breaking the waves, in which the destructive influence of religion is be more subtle but still have a strong effect on the individual like the poor, mentally unstable, Bess McNeil. (Breaking the Waves) The strong effect of the isolation might be the reason why the inhabitants of such areas tend to turn to religion, superstitions and traditions. That concept is hard to understand for someone living in the central Europe, which is full of crowded cities, towns and villages and where it is actually hard to find some place to be
Being gay has been condemned for many years by the Christian religion. It can be seen all over the media outlets that the majority of the Christian followers do not appreciate gay people or their marital rights. This has, consequently, constructed a tense aura between the two communities.

The colonies having different religious beliefs were beneficial in some ways because it offered a safe place to live and worship. However, if you lived in a colony that had a different belief system then the one you worshiped life could be extremely difficult, dangerous, and terrifying. As shown, the colonies that migrated into America in the 1600’s were the main religious influences during that time period that forced people to move to where they could be accepted, or to live in fear. This was a huge turning point in our history where people were tired of living in distress. In the years following the 16th century many people took a stand to fight for religious freedom, which is what so many admire about our country
