HOW EXTENSIVE WAS AMERICAN CORPORATE INVOLVEMENT (IBM) IN THE NAZI HOLOCAUST? The Nazi Holocaust was one of the most barbaric and inhumane acts of violence that had ever occurred in human history and changed the world in all its ethical concepts. The Nazi Holocaust was the systematic persecution and murder, bureaucratically organized and financed by the German State, of six million Jews by the Nazi regimes and its contributors between 1941-1945. Adolf Hitler, an Austrian born-German politician, and militiaman was the leader of the National Socialist German Party of Workers (NAZI), who later was named Chancellor of the German Reich by German president Paul von Hindenburg in 1933. Hitler’s hatred towards the Jewish and minorities community started
Yet, in 2006, Wiesel joined Oprah Winfrey for a T.V special on a trip back to Auschwitz and again in 2009, with President Obama and Angela Merkle Chancellor of Germany as company. Where the three of them toured Buchenwald, which gave Wiesel the opportunity to reflect on the suffering and death of his father in the camp. As one of few Holocaust survivors, Elie Wiesel has created a significant impact in society not only through the words he has written but also through his actions as an activist to advocate for a more human

Bush, “Address to the American People,” September 11, 2011 have several things in common. On the other hand, they obtain contrasting objectives such as facts, purpose, delivery, style, and tone.

The “Pearl Harbor, Day of Infamy” speech was given in 1941 in Hawaii, after a surprise attack from the Japanese, and twenty six thousand casilites.
The Holocaust is a unit that is taught in school every year. Children start learning about it in fifth grade, and it lasts all throughout high school. However, it wasn’t until my sophomore year where I realized just how terribly difficult it was for the Jewish people. Not only were they victims of the Nazis, but they were also victims of each other. The Judenrat was a Jewish council who had the responsibility of deciding which Jews would either stay or leave the ghettos.
On April 12th 1999, Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor and Nobel Laureate, delivered a speech that would change the minds of citizens in America for generations to come. As part of the Millennium Lecture Series, Wiesel discussed his horrific experiences in the concentration camp of Auschwitz and turned them into numerous knowledgeable life lessons. The message of the speech, titled Perils of Indifference, portrays citizens around the world should discourage indifference being tolerated, and it is achieved by creating credibility (ethos in beginning ), by using strict logic and reason (logos used in middle), and by discussing the morality on being indifferent to victims of injustice and cruelty (pathos used in end). In the speech Perils of Indifference, Elie
Samuel Nunez 8th Grade English Honors Block 2 Mrs. Guidry 30 January 2018 The Holocaust The Holocaust was the mass murdering of Jews, politicians, prisoners of war, and social minorities by Adolf Hitler’s idea called the “Final Solution”, which was the idea of the Jew’s extinction (The Holocaust). The Holocaust mainly took place in Middle Europe, because the majority of Concentration and Death camps were in Poland and Germany (Blohm 6).The people that were involved in the Holocaust were mainly Jews and the Nazis, but there were others who played roles such as the minority races, the disabled, and the Allied Forces (The Holocaust).The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. The Jews at first were forced into the Ghettos, because of orders are given out by a high ranking SS officer named Reinhard Heydrich (Allen 37). Another reason why the Jews were moved to the Ghettos, was because the Nazis wanted to separate the Jews from the rest of the German population (Ghettos). Lastly, having all the Jews in one area allowed the Nazis to be able to transport the Jews to death and concentration camps much easier (Allen 37).
After the Holocaust, people built memorials for the people who had suffered or died in it. Today, schools are educating students about the Holocaust. It is significant today because we cannot forget about the people that have died and we need to honor them. In the end, many people had made memorials and educate students about the Holocaust to make us remember the terrible things the victims of the Holocaust went through. We move forward by forgiving and having peace.
C.Aseltine Comp. 1, P.4 PR: % Four Perfect Pebbles I read the book, Four Perfect Pebbles: A Holocaust Story written by Lila Perl and Marion Blumenthal Lazan, who was forced to undergo the terrible conditions of Hitler’s reign. In our culture racism isn’t something new. There are constant reports on the news and even in our everyday lives that remind us of what it looks like to be racist and the outcomes of a person’s hate for an opposite race or religion. That is exactly how it was when Hitler slowly came to power in Germany and began to take over.
Of course, this does not mean we should ever forget the atrocities committed by Hitler. Today though, so-called ‘anti-Zionism’ is the greatest threat to the Jewish people. For example, violence against Jews increased following Trump’s courageous Jerusalem decision. Jerusalem is where our temples stood, our kings ruled, and where our people have yearned to return for two thousand years in the diaspora. Yet, despite the unbreakable bond between the holy city and Judaism, Muslim extremists and their left-wing allies across the globe resorted to bigotry and violence following the announcement.
By the summer of 1939, Albert Einstein presented to Pres. Roosevelt, the military potential of an uncontrolled fission chain reaction. By February of the following year, $6,000 was awarded to start the research. While many of the scientists fled to America during the Holocaust, the Manhattan Project enable many exceptional scientists from Germany. The Manhattan Project was also aided by help from the UK and Canada.
Over the years of 1933-1945 over a million people were killed due to the Holocaust and more than half of them were Jewish. January 20, 1942 there was a meeting called the Wannsee Conference held by Nazi officials and attended by government ministers to discuss the problem of the European Jews. Reinhard Heydrich, chief of the Reich Main Security Office was in charge of the meeting. Before this meeting there had been major events that occurred all over Europe causing the Jewish race to become belittled in most of Europe. Adolf Hitler preached that the Jews were not the same as them and Germany needed to remove them from their country and the surrounds areas.
