Trujillo vs. Hitler The definition of a dictator is a ruler with complete and absolute power over a country that is usually received forcefully. Adolf Hitler and Rafael Trujillo are two examples of powerful dictators that impacted their country immensely. During their reins of power, German and Dominican people were abused, manipulated, and many were killed. Hitler and Trujillo have several similarities on how they dictated; although, the ways in which they chose to use their power differed.
Frankenstein made arrangements for the creature's components to be 'wonderful'. This passes on a striking picture that stands out from Victor mockingly rehashing wonderful. This accentuates empathy for the beast since Frankenstein infers that the creature is a terrible joke. This guides the audience to sympathize with him. This quote likewise demonstrates that Victor
With the above criticisms in mind, it would therefore seem predictable or even morally okay if Chaplin’s legacy was shadowed by this. Surprisingly, it was not. As some viciously attacked “the Great Dictator”, many more applauded it for combining satire and slapstick to raise awareness of the ills of the Nazi era. It availed the perfect medium for many people particularly in the United States who did not know the extent of the Jews’ suffering.
They hated anyone who was of Jewish decent. The reason for this is because he thought that the German race was superior to everyone else. There are many strategies that Adolf Hitler used during the war to control the Jews and to ensure that the Nazi Germans were following and obeying his rules, regulation and policies. The main way that Hitler controlled the Jews was through force and terror.
“Lots of rules! Then when anyone breaks 'em—” But his desire for many controls did not of course extend to controls he disliked, to those over himself” (Spitz). Jack made sure the hunters did exactly what he said. David Spitz compares in to Hitler or Mussolini. Jack’s thirst for power and devolution is what led him to be the dangerous, oppressive leader
Elie’s identity has been reshaped by the sensation of feeling meaningless because his name is accustomed around his personality which defines one’s identity. Thus without a name, Eliezer has no individual personality or identity. Auschwitz is eminent for their impeccable lifestyle and cold-blooded soldiers. The barbarous SS men are domineering towards the Jewish captives throughout their eerie threats and actions, as demonstrated in the following quotation, “From time to time, a shot exploded in the darkness. They had orders to shoot anyone who could not sustain the pace.
This quote is proving how Eliezer goes through dehumanizing actions while he was in Auschwitz. Eliezer does not have the choice whether he wants to remove his clothes or not. The Germans make a decision and that is what is expected to be done. If these tasks are not completed, the innocent Jewish people receive a punishment. These punishments dehumanize the Jewish people even more than what has already happened to them.
The Berlin Conference: Leopold II and the Congo Free State Introduction Political issues such as mismanagement, dictatorship and corruption characterize some of the most severe challenges facing the Democratic Republic of Congo. The importance of the situation could be explained by the continuous number of dictatorial challenges on Congo soil. Most assumptions and features of this study are already obvious; however, political issues in the Congo cannot only be attributed to the physical challenges such as dictatorship, mismanagement and corruption. The influence of Western European countries during and after colonisation plays a vital role.
The report also suggests that all natives should be exterminated. Marlow is left between whether to recommend or approves the ideas. Contracting images of Kurtz confuses him although he admires the unbound eloquence of
George Washington Williams, an African American legislator, and Kande Kamara, an African colonial subject, both experienced some of the most brutal products of European Imperialism. Williams, in the late nineteenth century, toured the Belgian controlled Congo and witnessed the harsh measures King Leopold implemented to maintain absolute control and bleed the country of its resources. Kamara, on the other hand, bore witness to the end result of overzealous imperial ambitions when he was forced to fight for the allies in the trenches of WWI. These two men’s experiences, although considerably different, both shed light on Europe’s colonial philosophy of racism and ethnic superiority and its position of immense power during this period.
While reading this I felt the suspension and intensity of the story building. It made me think deeper about Josef and his past. How could someone that seems so nice be something so evil at one point? Everyone has had dark time in there life, but can someone so evil completely and fully become a better person? I wonder what happened in Josef’s past to make him so brain washed to the point where he believed that being a Nazi soldier was something he should do.

With his leadership powers “weakened” it is believed that “those who were responsible for the Holocaust’s initiation (namely other high-ranking officials within the Nazi Party) acted independently of Hitler” (Draper, 1999, p.14). This also brings into light the term ‘Cumulative radicalization’. Using cumulative radicalization is an easy way of explaining how over time, the Nazis persuaded many of the German people to take ever more extreme positions against Jews, and other persecuted groups, until the Holocaust became possible. It is also stated in the article ‘Law, justice, and Holocaust”, “less known are the contributions of “ordinary” people—doctors, lawyers, teachers, civil servants, officers, and other professionals throughout German society—whose individual actions, when taken together, resulted in dire consequences. Put simply, the Holocaust could not have happened without them”.
2 camps: Nazi camps and Japanese Internment camps. There was long hatred for Jews in European history. Hitler was the chancellor of Germany with death camps and concentration camps, and America had Internment camps. Innocent people were put in these camps. Nazi camps and Japanese Internment camps are different because of the purposes behind the camps, reasons the people were sent to the camps, and what they did at the camps.
