There needs to be the act of deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. For the holocaust, they did that exact thing. The Germans targeted the Jews and undesirables only and anyone that did not agree with the Germans. They did not like all of the differences that that came in between them. I believe that the holocaust can be called a gencise due to the effort in the numbers and all the hate that went into the camps.
Dehumanization is the process of depriving a person or group of positive human qualities. Acts in both genocide that represented dehumanization were people and children actually viewing their friends and family being killed in front of them. Everything was very traumatic for everyone that saw or even heard what was going on. Another similarity was that they all were racially profiling people. If you were Asian you were smart, if you are smart you were a threat, if you are a homosexual you are bad, etc.
Although bullying isn’t as severe, bullying is very similar to a genocide. The definition of a genocide is the killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. The definition of bullying is to hurt or intimidate, someone, physically or mentally to force the person to do what one wants. Both bullying and genocide include harming people to achieve what one wants, but a genocide is more destructive and includes hurting a larger amount of people. According to Barbara Coloroso, bullying is getting pleasure from someone else’s pain.
Conversely, under hate crime legislation it is clear to see that the prosecution of hate crimes further divides society by reinforcing the marginalisation of minority groups. Advocates with ideologies akin to this state that all violent crimes are the result of the offender’s absolute contempt for the victim of the hate crime. In such cases like this, all crimes are hate crimes and if no alternate rationale for prosecuting some people more harshly than others for the same crime based on who the victim is, a situation arises where different offenders charged with the same offence are treated unequally under the law which inadvertently creates discrimination, prejudices and unfairness in society.
Hitler’s final solution was to kill everyone who wasn’t part of the master race. The holocaust is the significance on how racism affects people. It makes them believe they are inferior and cant fight against it. Making others feel less superior is how racism begins. With the help of political officials who make laws and regulations that benefit them thus affecting minority
Genocide is one of the most cruel crimes that can be committed towards a mass amount of people. There are many documented genocide historical events, such as the Holocaust, where German Nazi’s belived they were very superior, and so their goal was to eliminate all people that were inferior to them, so they began murdering millions of Jewish people all across Europe along with many others such as gypsies, gay people, and disabled people. All throughout history the main reason that has caused hatred between people is ethnic and religious tensions. A more recent example of a genocide is the Rwandan genocide that occurred in Rwanda, Africa in 1994, where the Hutu majority rebelled against the Tutsi minority because the Belgian colonists gave superiority
“A major priority of the Nazi Party was to eliminate racially inferior groups in Germany and across Europe. Discuss how and why they did this” The Nazi part prosecuted many racial and social groups during their reign from 1933-1945. The Nazi party followed their beliefs that there was a superior race called the Aryan race and used Charles Darwin’s theory of Social Darwinism to prosecute these groups. In this essay I will discuss the prosecution of the Jewish people, the homosexuals and the gypsies (Roma) and how and why they did this. The persecution of the Jewish people began when the Nazi Party blamed them for spreading defeatism nearing the end of WW1.
When thinking about the Holocaust, what comes to mind? The man who led genocide, Adolf Hitler? Or the thousands of people who were incarcerated and killed for their beliefs and physical appearances? The Houston Holocaust Museum gave an eye-opening display of the horrors that Jews and other people faced during the Holocaust. The purpose of the museum was for people to remember the atrocities that can plague the human race when hatred is the acting force behind ones actions.
Chang uses her knowledge of this tragedy to bring to light how cruel and relentless the Japanese were during this time, as well as questioning how they could commit such indignities towards the Chinese. She reveals the widespread horror at and disbelief in what was taking place by also mentioning a member of the Nazi Party’s disapproval of the situation. The actions of the Nazis committed indignities of their own in Europe and now being exposed to more horrific events than they thought humanly possible. The rape of Nanking broadens the perspective on evil in human nature by revealing the tragic, brutal, and savage murders being placed upon the Chinese people, but also the good that can be brought out of those who seem cruel when their eyes are opened to such
Frustration - Aggression Theory defined as, “Racial prejudices generally have three components; one component is a cognitive component. A cognitive component that provides a description of members of the target group, often including negative stereotypes such as “lazy,” “thoughtless,” “criminal,” or “unfeeling”” (Hughes 2013:2016 pg. 216) Frustration-aggression theory discus that prejudice and/or discrimination expand among people who are frustrated with their inability to attain highly desired goals and respond with aggression toward others. Nazis in Germany were killing Jewish people for hyperinflation, because they felt that they were the problem. Some Germans helped Jewish people survive due to people getting killed or taken to work at
