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
Despite the many theories about the purpose of the Holocaust, the real purpose make those who weren’t members of the Master Race fear the Nazi Regime, to force them to obey the Nazi’s without question. Many believe that the Nazis were the cause and started World War II. These people believe that the Nazis are to be held responsible for the holocaust
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.
Elie Wiesel survived the Holocaust and his accounts of Nazi death camps portray a dark time for moral values. 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?, How could America support this horrible action?, etc. As he lists more extremely mind provoking rhetorical questions, he asks one that causes the audience to take a pause and take time to think about their virtues. “Can one possibly view indifference as a virtue?” (“Perails” 7) He is basically asking, how could someone value the characteristic of indifference?
