They were both treated inhumanely, had been subjected to the Nuremberg Laws, were both under deportation orders from the Nazis and were both racially inferior to the Germans. The differences were that the Gypsies didn't have to go through the selection process when they got to the concentration and death camps while the Jews did have to go through that. Another difference is that the Jews were killed twice as much as the Gypsies were because there was way more of the Jews than the Gypsies. The Primary difference between the Gypsies and the Jews is that the Gypsies were thought as more of a stereotype while the Jews were thought of as more a religion. The Primary parallel between the Gypsies and the Jews was that they were both mass murdered in gas chambers, shot at, and lived in very inhuman conditions compared to other groups persecuted by the Nazis.
I couldn’t go to Dutch school anymore.” To put this quote differently, All the Jewish people were discriminated and got treated unfairly. They were kicked from their homes and jobs, had to give up land, and even had to wear yellow stars to signify that they are Jewish, just because of what they believe in. And according to Anne, these people are “Good at heart”. It doesn’t make sense. On History.com, the text states “This culminated in Kristallnacht, or the “night of broken glass” in November 1938, when German synagogues were burned and windows in Jewish shops were smashed; some 100 Jews were killed and thousands more arrested.” This quote shows the extent of how Jews were treated.
Over 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust. They were shot, gassed, hung, and much more. The Jews died innocent and were killed just because they were Jews. It is important that people remember all of the Holocaust and not just some of it. The Devil’s Arithmetic written by Jane Yolen more aptly delivers the message of remembering than Donna Deitches version through the scene of boxcars, the conditions of the camp, and dehumanization.
Women throughout history have been subordinate to men, being seen as a sinful temptation to the wholesome man. Even though women were allowed to vote by the time the 1940’s rolled around, women were far from equal. Instead of having a career, women were expected to be married, have a family, and become a housewife to serve their husbands. In The Second Sex, author Simone de Beauvoir, published in 1949, discusses what it means to be a woman and the hardships and stereotypes they faced. During World War II, 1939 - 1945, women were forced into the workforce due to the fact that countless men were off at war.
One of the main reasons the fire took such a psychological toll on the New Yorkers was because of the workers jumping to there deaths. One witness even remarked the event saying quote 'I know a new sound a terrible sound the sound of a body hitting the pavement". The inferno was also not an uncommon occurrence the triangle shirt was burned before the tragedy to collect insurance money. Knowing this information, many Jewish and women workers went on strike to secure improved working conditions. There strike in fact proved successful with the New York state legislature creating the Factory Investigating Commission.
Throughout history, there have been many examples where groups of people have been denied their human rights. Individuals, groups, and governments have attempted to end many of these human rights violations although they have not always been successful. One event from history that can immediately be dissected from many other events that stripped humans of their basic rights is the deadly and horrible Holocaust which mainly took place in Germany during World War II and discriminated against the Jewish population. The German dictator at the time of WW2, Adolf Hitler, hated Jews and believed they were the reason for all the bad things happening to Germany such as the bad economy and the loss in WW1. The circumstances that led up to the Holocaust was the Treaty of Versailles after the Germans lost in WW1.
Jewish people were victim of the abuse that they received from the "Superior" Aryan race, they were sent towards concentration camp and were treated harshly and killed in cold blood, simply because of their religion, this was called the holocaust. Only a small amount of Jews survived the holocaust, a lot of stories from Jews who had suffered through the horror of concentration camp had surfaced and revealed the horror that they experienced, one of this Jews that spoke up is Joseph Sher.
Therefore different narration helps us get closer to the truth about the concentration camps, by emphasizing the tragedy from different angles that gives us a wider perspective. According to Kitty Hart- Moxon the concentration camps were so bad that most of survivors committed suicide because they couldn’t handle the nightmares
Allowing women into combat allows for more possibilities for things to go wrong, such as classified information getting released or them getting captured. In a situation where two men are captured and told to tell information or get beaten they will get beat, but if a woman was in the situation the men would rather tell information than have to watch a girl get beat and tortured. Some examples where women were not prepared for the situations they were put in were, “During World War II, more than 400,000 women serve at home and abroad as mechanics, ambulance drives, pilots, administrators, nurses, and in other non-combat roles. Eighty-eight women are captured and held as POWs (prisoners of war).”, also “During the Persian Gulf War, more than 41,000 women are deployed to the combat zone. Two are taken captive.”(Women in the military), this shows that women can be liabilities to the group if they are not properly prepared.
One of these constituents is mental health. Now I know that mental health and the gender wage gap seem to be on two opposite spectrums, but their connections run deeper than it seems at face value. For women, our expectations are overflowing whether it be staying home with the children when they are sick, caring for elderly parents, making lunches and dinner, being a supportive spouse, or cleaning the house. As if the responsibilities at home are not enough, we are expected to go to work and tolerate unfair compensation and psychological abuse from the dominant men in charge. At some point, we as women are bound to hit a breaking point.
