The 20th century was a time of both success and sadness, triumph and tragedy, however, no event in European history has been quite as disheartening as the Nazi Holocaust, the darkest hour in European History. In less than a decade, The Nazi Party murdered well over 6,000,000 Jews. 6,000,000 mothers, children, fathers, even babies. This tragedy was justified on the grounds that the people of the Jewish population were subhuman, a burden to the Nazi regime. Similar to the Jewish population of Europe, the people of Salem in The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, were unfairly sentenced to death without any justifiable reasoning, other than suspicion and hatred.

It is a magnificent thing that Emmett Till, at the age of 14 years old, could cause start the civil rights movement. People such as Bayard Rustin and Harry Hay had to wait about half their lives to stand up for what is right. This child was able to do just that on a larger scale since his actions caused the civil rights movement to go nationwide, he was also able to inspire other citizens after him, like Rosa Parks and Malcolm X, to do something about what was happening in America. Depression settles over anybody who knows that this young man had to die for awareness to raise. When he has murdered a magazine that was major for African-Americans, “Jet,” printed a picture of the boy on its cover, which made certain organizations like the National
With the passing of decades, most Europeans mistakenly believed that King Leopold spent his considerable fortune funding public works in the Congo and stopping slavery in East Africa. He was the unintimidating King of Belgium; but it was all a sham. Underneath the veneer of generosity and graciousness laid a cunning and self-engrossed scoundrel, a duplicitous fraud to rival the evil charm of Iago or Richard III. Under the guise of an international charitable foundation, he personally owned the colony of the Congo, and he ran it as a brutal business investment. His “charity” resulted in the death of ten million people, approximately 50% of the population in the Congo.

One person who helped out the Jews were Raoul Wallenberg. He was a hero to so many Jews trying to get them to safer places. Even though his parents wanted a different future him, he did what he loved and that was helping others.

Here the argument arises that despite many efforts of Jack, at last the court has announced him 10 to 25 years of death. This according to me was wrong decision.
Since then President Paul Kagame continues to run the country with a strong authoritative hand, but victims and perpetrators are working and living peacefully and the economy is seeing rapid growth.

In 2007, I, along with a few of my peers, founded the Little Lemon Drop Jr. Guild as a way to give back to our community. Since then, this nonprofit organization has raised thousands of dollars that has gone to support uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Throughout my middle school and high school years, I have been very involved with this group. When I had the opportunity to choose a service placement for this year, I immediately knew I would be doing my service through the Little Lemon Drop Jr. Guild because of my previous involvement with the guild and my passion for the cause the guild supports.
I believe Tadeusz is a righteous person due to his extreme effort to help save the Abrahamers. Even though Tadeusz believed it was a “human obligation” to save the Jews, I believe he is one of the Tzadikim. He does not realize how much he is helping Jews by hiding them and risking his life. None of the commentaries we learn give Noah enough credit for what they could do today or in other generations. Although Tadeusz generation was not one of the best, he still probably would do other righteous things in other generations.
