John Locke’s ideas were used by Dr. Stahmer in the Nuremburg Trials. Locke’s ideas were also contradicted Dr. Stahmer, because Locke feels that everyone is equal and would never help with hurting the Jews. Dr, Stahmer took Locke’s ideas with him in the trials and changed them to how he feels about the Nazis. I feel that their theories are the total opposite, and that they would never agree on the rights of the Jews and the Natural Laws that they should
Hitler led a regime of German people to conform against other people with different religions, ethnicities, and sexualities. Hitler was an idol for Germany and Jewish people were the scapegoats for Germany’s problems. Hitler convinced and manipulated millions of people to fight for his agenda. Hitler directed the minds of his followers to support a cause that killed millions of people which is now known as the Holocaust. Hitler was able to execute his plans for the Holocaust because of the aid from others which was demonstrated by Nazi leaders, the German military, and the Axis powers.
Unfortunately for Jewish people in Europe, they were the target of oppression for Hitler. Society stereotypes the Jewish people just as other ethnicities. Stereotypes seem to be a common way for people to view others. Germany needed a scapegoat for all the struggles they were facing and Hitler used stereotypes to give the German people a scapegoat.
The groupthink, or group mentality theory occurs when the majority of the group follows a certain ideal or idea, and causes individuals who might have thought otherwise to support the majority’s conclusions. This has never been more prevalent then in one of the most horrifying events in history: the Holocaust. The events of the Holocaust baffled the world – no one could understand how Hitler convinced thousands of German soldiers to murder millions of innocent Jewish citizens. The world could not understand how a sophisticated and refined European country could follow a mindset that systematically eradicated generations of people for the sole reason that they practiced a certain religion (Tindale, Munler, Wasserman & Smith, 2002). The largest contributor to the events that took place during the Holocaust are the effects of conformity.
The Holocaust; probably one of the most brutal and horrifying genocides in the history of politics. It was the dark secret of Germany during World War II, As a result, the defeat of the Nazi’s sparked a huge newcomming, and with it, the formation of the United Nations. But that is not the main concern here. The events and documents that we have found about the Holocaust still horrify us today. Documentations such as the book Night by Elie Wiesel and the story of the White Rose show us how brutaly a person can treat one another, and the exents powerful people can go to in order to hold their power.
The message of remembrance is more aptly portrayed in Jane Yolen’s novel than in Donna Deitch’s film version of The Devil’s Arithmetic. The movie version fails to express the importance of remembrance because it doesn’t illustrate the Holocaust as accurately as the novel. If society remembers and educates themselves on the issue, then they avoid the risk of having to face another genocide. However, if society chooses to forget and ignore, then another genocide could easily take place right under their noses without them suspecting a thing. Society must always remember these tragedies.
I appreciated that Rose didn’t openly take a side and therefore wasn’t able to sway my opinion rather left it to my own judgment. In addition to Rose’s primary question “What would Jesus do?”, I appreciated that Rose presented other issues that in fact are the root of the issue amongst immigration. While reading both perspectives, I found myself torn between agreeing and disagreeing with both which leads me to acknowledge how difficult and extensive this issue truly is. I definitely recommend reading the textbook, in fact; I already recommended the book to my brother which supports Trump and his notion on immigrants. The truth is, this nation simply can’t kick 10 million people out without facing the morality issue and whether many Americans today may be considered “anchor babies”, it would mean breaking both moral law and federal las (constitution) to deport them.
Eugenics and Concentration Camps Most people have a common knowledge on the holocaust, and about the horrible things that happened with it, but to what extent? Therefore, I will be typing this paper about Hitler; his beliefs and intentions on the concentration camps. I will also be typing about the concentration camps, how they formed, the way people were treated, how the people got there, and how eugenics was used in the concentration camps and in other countries too. Concentration camps did not start out as a location where the Jews were tricked and or forced to enter. But instead, concentration camps started out as a location Germans were sent to when they oppose fascism that Hitler was trying to make Germany become instead of a Republic
After questioning why some of America’s largest corporations still continued to have business with Hitler’s Nazi Germany, he asks a very powerful rhetorical question. “How is one to explain their indifference?” (“Perils” 22) With this question, the audience questions their prior government. Some of the questions that could be running through their minds are how could we have allowed this to continue?
History is a subjective matter. There are several narrations and interpretations for every historical incident ever happened. Human beings are not immune to their own evil, which makes them vulnerable and painfully exposed to their self-made tragedies. Merriam Webster defines 'historiography' as "the writing of history based on the critical examination of sources, the selection of particulars from the authentic materials, and the synthesis of particulars into a narrative that will stand the test of critical methods." The significance of historiography lies in its ability to examine the evolution of thoughts and feelings concerned with a particular historical event.
The Holocaust was a devastating event that had outreaching effects on many groups of people and many countries. Although most of this devastation happened to the Jewish Race. There are many books, movies, memoirs, and academic journals regarding the Holocaust, portraying how it affected different people and their stories. One memoir that will be discussed is Night written by Elie Wiesel about his life during the Holocaust. Also a movie by the name of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas will be discussed.
Every prominent figure is known for their unique set of abilities, whether it is their ability to act, sing, produce, play a sport, model, etc. However, looking through that facade can either reveal an ethereal soul, or a chamber of ominous secrets. In this case, two notable figures, Richard Wagner and Michael Jackson, both held a number of offenses that would ultimately be deemed immoral by many. What mainly separates Wagner and Jackson from the regular, working class citizens is their fame. One might assume that because of Wagner and Jackson’s fame, people may choose to overlook the unethical actions committed because of their prodigious talent.
Opinion vs. Experience People display judgment through the concept of racism. In America, African-Americans and Native Americans had been the races colonials decided to exploit. During World War II Jewish people were the targets for Nazi Germany. Using pathos, ethos, and logos Woody Allen's Random Reflections of A Second Rate Mind and Bruno Bettelheim's A Victim reflects how society requires a group to belittle in order to make them stronger. Using pathos Bruno Bettelheim's A Victim captures the reader and shows them the conditions of the camps.
Compare and Contrast The articles about the St. Louis and the Fresno family have many similarities and differences. Some of these similarities are they have both been displaced, they have to adjust to a new life, and of course they're refugees. A few they don't have in common are the years they happened, how many there were, and of course they are all refugees. Lots of refugees that are sent to places have harsh reasons behind them.
