Racism also occurred during the time period of 1930’s and 1940’s when Adolf Hitler rose to power and became the leader of the Germans. Due to personal beliefs, he committed massacre against millions of European Jews. His hatred was so strong that he even slaughtered anyone caught helping the Jews. This is yet another example of people going to extreme measures to get rid of people because of personal dislikes of certain people. Hitler discriminated against the Jews because of their religious beliefs and outward appearances.
More severe forms of spanking, such as switching, paddling, belting, caning, whipping, and birching, involve the use of an implement instead of a hand. Parents commonly spank children or adolescents in response to undesired behavior. Spanking is a good way to promote child discipline. But there are some studies that spanking does not stop misbehavior. Spanking doesn’t work for several reasons because it doesn’t teach children to have self control or what to do instead.

From this, child readers would learn how to question others’ motives and realize that people have hidden intentions, especially from strangers. This is a significant indicator about the world people live in. Today, many people are skeptical of strangers and their intentions because people fear what they do not know.
Imagine if you lived somewhere in a society where everyone’s families and everyone you know are murdered just because of their skin color. Would you kill someone just because of that? No because it’s not fair to their families and they have the same right as you. They were created by god. African-Americans were effected by this because they were targeted at by the to the long struggle in which was racism in the U.S”.
Eichmann’s banality made him no less guilty (Arendt Eichmann). What Arendt did do was open a massive divide between two versions of a painful past: a monstrosity or a normality. Arendt’s critics wanted Eichmann to be the clearest verdict of evil that history has put on record. Arendt disputed not that he was evil, but rather the nature and consequence of such evil. Arendt casts Eichmann into a theory of evil and a narrative of history which, to many of her counterparts, is not only outrageous but perhaps terrifying.
The Nuremberg Trials held such a great importance for many reasons but the greatest of importance was bringing justice to those who suffered an unimaginable amount pain and despair. Throughout the time of World War II many war crimes were committed, but one that stands out was the treatment of European Jew's. The Nazi's whom were "driven by a racist ideology that regarded Jews as "parasitic vermin" worthy only of eradication, the Nazis implemented genocide on an unprecedented scale" (USHMM).

The remembrance of the justice to the Holocaust victims the archive displays can be found in many documents throughout, however, the war crimes of the Wehrmacht justice case is one of the many transcripts contained in the archive that truly represents the purpose and importance of the trials.
For many years racism and colonialism have been the reality of the world. Both were used to advance the idea that one race was superior to another, the blacks being inferior to the whites. The Atlantic Slave trade headed the notion of colonialism, the whites believed it was their duty to civilize the blacks as they were seen as ‘untamed beasts’ that needed to be colonized. This resulted in a number of whites exploiting the blacks to gain wealth whilst, the blacks lost everything (families, identities and even their lives). The whites were skilled at manipulating to the point that some blacks believed their views as they often found ways to justify their actions.

Dickens approaches his historical subject with some duplicity. The French Revolution was fated because the aristocracy oppressed the poor, driving them to revolt. The poor search for their liberty and rights. The stories of the Marquis’s rape of the peasant along with other details of aristocratic mistreatment of the lower classes provide some justification for French revolution .The storming of the Bastille, the death carts with their doomed human cargo, the swift drop of the guillotine blade - this is the French Revolution. Through the hostility between the French aristocrats and the peasants, Dickens highlights the principal that violence creates even more violence, until the chain eventually exhausts itself.
