Hitler's resentment for the Jewish people grew to the point of devastation. This is a time known as the Holocaust. Hitler was an evil man who had not an ounce of mercy or compassion. He had created torture-filled concentration camps, which is where he would murder his convicted Jews, or leave them to die of malnourishment and diseases. Anne Frank describes the situation, "After May 1940, the good times were few and far between; first there was the war, then the capitulation and then the arrival of the Germans, which is when the trouble started for the Jews,” (Frank
During the post medieval time period, Europe faced one of it's darkest times. The persecution of witches was seen to be a significant factor in the history of Europe. More than fifty thousand people guilty of witchcraft were put on death row and killed in this time period. Many people were persecuted of wtichcraft because they were easy to blame for accidents, coincindences or bad luck. Many people accused of witchcraft were unable to prove themselves innocent.
Many cities filled with the decaying corpses of the Black Death where locked away, and abandoned. Strict policies where enforced and “restrictions were placed on public assemblies and gatherings,” to ensure no further outbreaks (Sumich 217). To them quarantine was the only way to control and prevent the disease, but little was known about the disease during that time. The Black Death was very selective on who it infected, some regions such as Iceland and Finland, avoided the Black Death entirely. “The medieval epidemic powerfully shaped patterns of health and demography in the surviving population, producing a post-Black Death population that differed in many significant ways,” presenting a strong force of natural selection, which led to an adaption in human genes (DeWitte 1).
The final trait of a tragedy is that it has a “tragic hero”- the main character which experiences a downfall as a result of a tragic flaw. In The Crucible, John Proctor is the tragic hero. John Proctor’s fatal flaw of lust for Abigail was the initiator of numerous events that eventually led to his downfall. A tragedy must deal with tragic events, as well as a tragic or unpleasant ending. There are many bitter or unpleasant scenes, such as when John and Elizabeth Proctor are separated- although the most tragic scenes are the deaths of important characters, such as John Proctor, Rebecca Nurse, Giles Corey, Martha Corey, and others.
Rats and the Black Death The Black Death will forever be one of the scariest and catastrophic disease outbreaks that stuck mankind. In 1347 the Black Death surfaced wiping out entire towns, eventually claiming the lives of some 60 percent of the European population. Most of our history teachers and historians blame the outbreak on the fleas carried by the black rat. From my research on the topic I am amazed to say that some of the articles that I have read have me rethinking what I had been taught over this topic may have been wrong or inaccurate. According to this article, I believe that black rats are no responsible for the speared of the Black Death.
Black Death is one of the most deadly and violent diseases of the medieval times. Black Death is a disease that spreads quickly. There is three types of plague and every type of them is deadly. This is the disease that killed so many people that it took 400 years for the population to regain numbers. Black Death is the most thought-provoking and lethal disease from the medieval period (historytoday.com).
A train took them there and if they try to escape, they would be shot at. Jews had to work at concentration camps with horrible treatments while Jews at death camps would be killed by guns or poison gas and some would be experimented on. The Nazi’s tried to keep their mass killings of Jews a secret. However, when the war ended, the world was shown the horrific places the Nazi’s had built and the people were horrified of Germany’s actions. After the Holocaust, people built memorials for the people who had suffered or died in it.
Some people had excruciating “medical” experiments carried out on them. The stories of what happened in the Auschwitz camps are very saddening. The liberation of the camps were just as bad. People were put on trains and they froze or starved to death. All this happened because Adolf Hitler decided to blame the loss of a war on people who really had no part of it.
During the mid-fourteenth century, a plague hit Europe. Initially spreading through rats and subsequently fleas, it killed at least one-third of the population of Europe and continued intermittently until the 18th century. There was no known cure at the time, and the bacteria spread very quickly and would kill an infected person within two days, which led to structural public policies, religious, and medical changes in Europe. The plague had an enormous social effect, killing much of the population and encouraging new health reforms, it also had religious effects by attracting the attention of the Catholic Church, and lastly, it affected the trade around Europe, limiting the transportation of goods. As a response to the plague that took place
(Bachrach 54) People were beaten if they stopped working. Once dead, bodies were sent to the crematorium to be turned to ashes so they could get rid of them more easily. The Nazi soldiers were ruthless and they didn’t show mercy to anyone. (Bachrach 56) The jews stayed in these camps until 1994 when they were finally saved. (Bachrach
The holocaust was a terrible time for Jews and the world because it was the start of another world war. These old boxcars were just the beginning of hard times for the Jews. The holocaust needs to be remembered for the sake of the dead, but also for the sake of the living, so it never happens again. The worst part about it is, many people turned the other
Ring around the rosie, a pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes, ⅓ of Europe got obliterated by the black plague. The black plague, also called the Black Death, began in East Asia then traveled to Europe . The disease was carried by rats & it caused fever, developed lesions, and death within a few days of having it. The citizens in Europe, at the time, were unaware of what the cause of the plague was, leading to many different responses. Europeans had reacted in various ways towards the black plague like using it as a means to collect money, strengthen beliefs, & causing deaths.
The Black Plague is known to be one of the most deadly pandemics in history, estimated to have killed 30-60% of Europe’s population in the series of outbreaks between the 14th and 18th centuries. The devastation of the plague was made much worse by the incomprehension of those affected by it. Y. Pestis, the bacteria which causes plague, was spread by infected hosts, including rats and fleas. However, the sparse knowledge of science and medicine led Europeans to blame other sources for the debilitating disease. Some believed the plague was the wrath of God, punishing the guilty for their sins.
Did you know that eleven million people died in the holocaust? Six million of those people were Jews. The Jews were captured and taken to concentration camps because the Nazis simply hated them. Concentration camps were made to kill off all of the Jews. They did this because they saw them as a problem to Germany.
Because of the high numbers of African-Canadians that populated that area, Africville was dictated as a slum. Years of neglect and racism has turned Africville into one of the worst slums of Canada. (Expropriating Black Nova Scotians) Even as an official city of Nova Scotia Africville was not given essential services. The small community was poisoned by disease and large amounts of waste that freely scattered around the town. A former Africville resident, Eddie Carvery, states that “The hospital would just dump their raw garbage on the dump—bloody body parts, blankets, and everything” The civilians had no access to water and were forced to get their necessities from the land around them.
