A Violation The Treaty of Versailles was a violation of Wilson’s ideals. The Treaty is one of the most important agreements (or disagreements) that shaped 20th century Europe socially and physically. Woodrow Wilson on January 22, 1917 in an address to the United States Senate called for a peace without victors, but the Treaty signed by the participating nations was everything but that. The blame for the war was placed on Germany and justified the reparations that were outlined by the treaty for the war. The terms of the treaty were very harsh to the Germans and they took on great resentment.
“Germany's problems are all caused by the Jews.”, Hitler would say. He believed that Jews started World War I. He also thought that they started Great Depression. People led on to believe him.
Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering” summarizes the thinking behind Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. Intro to SD2: Intolerance is another way the Nazis justified the Holocaust. The differences between the Jewish people and the average German was pointed out with great hostility upon the rise of the Nazi Party.
“Adolf Hitler announced the Nuremberg Laws on September 15, 1995” (“ Nuremberg Laws”). This was when the laws were released and when everything had changed for the Jewish people. Also, when these laws were released it had also caused the Jewish people to feel defenseless because they had gotten their freedom and rights stolen from them. These law basically helped the Germans overpower the Jewish people. Last but not least, the Nuremberg laws had affect the Holocaust in multiple ways.
Elie also saw more horrific things done to others by Nazis that he had questioned the kindness in all people. Jeanne witnessed more of social injustice and was just extremely disappointed in her country, but she really did not see anything that would lead her to believe that all people have a monster inside them. Between the experiences of both Elie and Jeanne, it seems that Elie had lost the most belief in humanity, because of the great amount of oppression that he faced from the Axis powers in Germany. “Suddenly the evidence
He wrote another essay “Future of Ruined Germany” that I want to put a full focus in this essay. The “Future of a Ruined Germany” is based on Germany after the Second World War. On the first paragraph I mentioned that power makes both positive and negative outcomes. What does this essay tells us about power? On the first paragraph, he mentioned few
Isolationism weakened the League of Nations by refusing to sign the League of Covenant and the Treaty of Versailles. Due to the feud between Wilson and Lodge, isolationism will start to grow. Isolationism and the fear of communism will influence the U.S. after World War 1. Americans have moved on and were getting tired of Progressivism and war. They feared unrest labor such as communist, labor unions, and immigrants.
A second thing the Nazis did was they separated families. It's deadly when you lose a loved one. But not knowing if the other one of dead or alive or where they are is even more devastating and that really tore into people's
According to Harmful and Undesirable by Guenter Lewy, “Hitler had argued in Mein Kampf that the Jews had “poisoned German culture,” including literature, and had “wrecked all the conceptions of beauty and dignity” (101). Words were important for Liesel. She stated, “I have hated the words and I have loved them” (Zusak 528). She hated the words because a powerful word “communism” had tore her away from her mother. She loved the words because they connected her with her friend Max Vandenburg.
The Holocaust Concentration Camps: Auschwitz The Holocaust was a horrid experience. The Holocaust came about because Adolf Hitler was upset over the loss of World War I. Hitler blamed the Jews for Germany’s loss in World War I, and he wanted to take over Germany, with that came him thinking he had to get rid of all the Jewish people. So after the loss of World War I, he tried and succeeded with the extermination of most of the Jews.
The aftermath of warfare is never positive. Throughout history warfare has negatively impacted society and those living in it. The end of World War I led to a period of unrest in Canada because of rising unemployment, the spreading of the Spanish Flu and increasing negative treatment towards women. Rising unemployment after World War I, led to much tension amongst Canadians. Evidence of this was when war factories shut down because war supplies were no longer needed now that the war had ended, this left many people unemployed (Canadian War Museum).
The German people felt he had over stated the horrors of war to further his pacifist belief. They felt he was a traitor to his nation and the Nazi government burned all his
the war because it was the Austro-Hungarian empire that started the war. Furthermore, many Germans felt that they were being humiliated because they lost the war. The guilt clause caused many tempers to flare, and this in turn caused many Germans to feel upset by how the victorious countries treated them. Leaders like Hitler used the guilt clause’s contents to stir up anger in the Germans against the allies, leading to the German public to resent the allies, and
Although any of the treaties passed Parliament, but one that did was called the Olive Branch Petition. When the petition was brought to King George, he was very angered; moreover, the colonists believed that his taxes were unfair. He then declared soon after that all colonists to be traitors and should be put to death posthaste. Tensions had been growing for years between the two countries, but the King’s decision to list all colonists’ traitors angered them so much they decided to create their own kind of government. This scared Britain to the point of attempting
The increase in hate for these groups of foreign people went as far as their home countries. Many people believed that we shouldn’t have open doors to all immigrants and that the immigrants that do get in are dead weight. A quote from a poem called Unguarded Gates by Thomas Bailey Aldrich really encapsulated many Americans belief at this time, “Wide open and unguarded stand our gates, and through them presses a wild motley throng.” Immigration and foreign peoples, especially those from South Eastern Europe, Central Africa, and China were seen as the lowest of tears of people at this
