This is because in the new government system, the Germans taught that the Jews were not people. Therefore, Jews did not deserve to be treated as such. This logic made no sense to Corrie and her family, in their heads the Jews were still people, and harming them was still a sin. Fully aware of the consequences, the Ten Booms determined that keeping the Jews safe was the honorable and honest thing to do. Therefore, the Ten Booms began to hide the Jews and live out a dishonest life.
The discrimination against any group or organization occuring to is brings a lot of importance to the Holocaust. This is because if people can look back on a real life example displaying how discriminatory laws can lead to genocide, like the discrimination against Jews lead to the Holocaust, they would be able to realised that these discriminatory laws today need to be prevented and stopped. Otherwise, a holocaust against any of these previously mentioned groups could materialize. Moreover, the Holocaust ended up having multiple, universal effects on the victims. Similarly, to a much lesser degree, the Holocaust had an effect on the indifferent people that were unknowing of the true occurrences inside the Jewish concentration camps.
The goals the Britain were trying to accomplish were numerous and so were unclear. Myths about the true motives of the declaration still swirl but, historians focus on the diplomatic and political motives behind the declaration. It is very important to note that soon after the declaration, on December 9th 1917, Britain captured Jerusalem. This ended a nearly 400-year rule by the ottoman empire. They were later granted the league of nation mandate for the control of Palestine in 1920.
How is resistance being defined? Having endured centuries of persecution in Europe, the Jews had established patterns of reaction that would ensure their survival and according to Raul Hilberg it was not to draw attention to them but to try and pacify their opponent. Hilberg further argues, the Jews being accustom to persecution and in the interest of self-preservation had to restrain from resistance. According to Hilberg "In exile, the Jews... had learned that they could avert danger and survive destruction by placating and appeasing their enemies...Thus over a period of centuries the Jews had learned that in order to survive they had to restrain from resistance"
The Jewish leaders wanted to get rid of Jesus because he was threat to their religious authority. As said in Mathew he handed them over to the crowd full of chief priest and elders (Mathew 27:24-26). Pilate needed the partnership of the Jewish leaders. I read in a book about the biography of Pilate, in it it explains how his official was called Praefect. This word translate into "governor".
Both Norman Roth’s and Stephen H. Haliczer’s thesis’s, state their opinion as to why the Inquisition was instituted. They both believe different things about why hatred towards the Jews originally started, which led to Jewish conversions and the Inquisition itself. Stephen H. Haliczer believes that the original hatred towards the Jews began because of the way the Jews were living. Prior to the time of the Inquisition, there were multiple urban oligarchies who came into conflict with the Jews. Because the Jews were independent and were not under the control of the oligarchies even though they lived within their regions, hostility towards them arose.
What was Hitler’s significance on Jews 1933-45? It is clear that Hitler had great significance on the lives of Jews 1933-45, however the extent of his significance is often questioned. Hitler clearly possessed a disliking towards the Jewish community and did play a part in their brutal downfall, however he was not completely responsible. He created an environment where the Jews were viewed as outsiders - a platform on which he would ‘purify’ the German population and evict the Jews from Germany. Hitler was not afraid to speak his mind and he said the words many Germans had without the courage to speak, until Hitler came along.
The flaw to that argument is that those would only be discovered after the war and only if the allies had won, by however actively arming yourself, killing Nazi’s and, sabotoging supplies the impact would be immediately felt, presenting a better chance of winning. When slavery was still a big problem, many of the slaves still ran away which was still resisting. Many Jews did try and run, their problem was that the Jews and the slaves were they were always isolated so their best option, if they could was to run. Some also revolted, but the ones that did nothing, regretted it, because they
These acts were being permitted because people were just not speaking up and letting it happen. The Nazis and Hitler wanted more than what they had so they took from people. The Jews were hated because people are believing things that were not true. It was not just then it also happening now the Holocaust may have been a big event but Silent Majority, Discrimination, and Hate has not changed at all. The Nazi’s of Germany were greedy because they believed Jewish people were the reason they did not have money.
As a leader of the German Reformation and a vanguard of Protestantism, Luther’s attitude toward Jews is a matter of great concern. Some scholars, including Paul Johnson, an English journalist and famous historian, believes Luther is a brutal anti-Semite. Paul thinks Luther was not content with verbal abuse – “he got Jews expelled from Saxony in 1537, and in the 1540s he drove them from many German towns.” However, some German theologians believe that Martin Luther does not hate Jews and think that Luther’s attitude toward Jews is a matter of religious discrimination rather than racial discrimination. Roland Bainton, noted American Protestant church historian, writes regarding to On the Jews and Their Lies, Luther’s position was “entirely religious
