Out of the two world wars, World War II is known to be the bloodiest and brutal war. The main reason this is to believed is because to the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the time period where many were persecuted for their beliefs and race. Hitler is who is to blame for the Holocaust, he is the one who organized all the horrific things done to the people who did not fall under his Master Race. 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.
F.M.S.C. isn’t just an organization it’s “a nonprofit organization dedicated to packing food”(Tan 1). By purely being nonprofit they aren’t just simply wanting money, they want to help and have spent their time on trying to pack food. In others words a large number of people signed up to volunteer, enough people they almost needed to turn some of them away. This means that people want to help and F.M.S.C. is the best way for them to do
The Holocaust The Holocaust is one of the more well known events in history, it’s a really bad time to be in but this did happen to these people and for no reason. The Holocaust is when the Nazi’s from Germany attacked the Jews Adolf Hitler led this attack and he and his men wiped out approximately 6,000,000 Jews. The reason for this was Hitler entered Germany into the olympics thinking he would win easily. Well he soon found out that he wasn’t the best and he lost.
Throughout our history we have had many tragic events and some of these events caused a very large amount of people to die or be mistreated. There were lots of people letting these acts be permitted because of their ignorance and pure hatred. The act of genocide and the extermination of groups of people happened because people were not speaking up against intolerance, hatred and propaganda. During the holocaust 6.3 million Jews died because of Greed,Hate,Silent Majority,and Propaganda, leading to genocide.
In the past, innocent people got persecuted by the hands of other individuals because of hatred. These terrible actions started because of the pure hatred, lack of knowledge, and people didn’t fight back. Since, this happened people have lost their lives for example 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and shooting that is going on. “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate”. Nazi ideology started Propaganda causing discrimination and hate which justified genocide, which led 6.3 millions Jews killed.
The paradox of being half ugly is shown all throughout Hitler 's actions. In WWII the entire Jewish population was the target for Hitler and his Nazis party. This led to millions of jews being persecuted and killed. One example of the ugliness of the war would be the discrimination and the hatred of other races. While in power Hitler created concentration camps to contain Jews and people not of German background.
An evil disgusting dictator named Adolf Hitler built concentration camps and tortured and killed millions and millions of innocent people including men, women, and children. Jewish People were told that they would be living in a better place. But it was the opposite. In concentration camps, Jewish people were kept in small crowded cells filled with strangers and very little room for sleep and privacy.
Through this process, I also learned a lot about campus food waste. For example, I learned that Sodexo (SUNY New Paltz and other colleges’ dining hall company) have been tracking and composting their food waste in a local farm. In doing that, they found a drastic reduction in their food waste. Additionally, after researching and learning more about campus food waste, it made me more cautious about wasting food. Whenever I am at the campus dining hall, I try to eat with my stomach and not my eyes.
The Holocaust was a persecution and eventual mass murder of Jews during the Nazi regime in the World War II. An estimate of six million Jews were killed, all because of their religion and beliefs. The Nazi thought they were the superior race, and Jews were “inferior” as well as a danger to the ‘perfect’ German community. Gradually, the German government was filled with people who believed that Jews needed to be purged. They began to pass laws that specifically targeted Jews, such as making all Jews wear a big yellow star to identify themselves, as well as forbidding Jews from riding bikes.
During the Holocaust millions of people were killed by the Nazis because they were not the ideal race. The Nuremberg Trials were held in Nuremberg, Germany. The judges of the trials were from Great Britain, the Soviet Union, the United States, and France. These trials were held to bring justice to all the lives lost during World War two. After the Holocaust, the Nuremberg Trials were held to bring justice to Nazi officials, Industrialists, but failed to punish those who escaped.
The Great Aristotle said “we are what we repeatedly do.” For example a lot of college students didn't know about all the rescuers and what happened during the Holocaust. Rescuers are good people who saved Jews from dying. They save these people from the Nazis, even with the consequences, and they risked there life to save Jews from the Nazis. Even some died and they would be considered legends.
What is a hero? According to Google, a hero is “a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.” (Google.com). Many will agree Miep Gies fits this description; an article written about her gives her the title “Hero of the Holocaust” (Legacy.com). She’s a hero because she protected some of the people targeted by the Nazis, preserved the diary of a girl known all over the world, and continued to spread hope and encouragement for the rest of her life.
Rescue During the Holocaust millions of Jews were persecuted for multiple years for no reason. Some were worked and beaten until death. During the time of prosecution many people and countries worked hard to rescue the Jews. Individuals risked their life in order to rescue them.
Miep gies was a hero of WWII, she tried to save seven jewish lives and give them a good lifestyle putting their lives before hers. She spent upwards of 2 years keeping jews, The Franks, The Van Daans and Fritz Pfeffer, healthy and kept with their daily needs. She also was brave against the Nazis, knowing that people who harbored jews were treated as badly as thoes whom were jews, and kept jews. Miep Gies is a very deserving person of this award and should, quite frankly, be the one who recieves it. Miep Gies stood brave against the Nazis when they invaded the annex and even managed to save Anne’s Diary.
The tragic events of the Holocaust began when Adolf Hitler came to power. He tortured and killed Jews, homosexuals and gypsies because of their beliefs. The Nazis believe that the Jews posed as a threat to the German civilization so they discriminated them for years. They were forced to work on labor camps (concentration camps) and beaten if they attempted to withhold from pain. Furthermore, they faced starvation and illnesses, which also contributed to their deaths.
