The Salem Witchcraft Trials had many effects on the town of Salem, Massachusetts. A lot of the effects were negative, destroying the community, government, even individuals. The Witch Trials affected the community of Salem in multiple ways. The witch trials created many tensions between several families in the town. The most acknowledgeable dispute from the play was between the Putnam’s and the Nurse’s.
Or did I dream of that? It's she put me out, you cannot pretend it were you. I saw your face when she put me out, and you loved me then and you do now!" (Miller 22) This refers to how Abigail was kicked from John Proctor's by his wife Goody Proctor. Another scenario in the book was when people were accusing other people of witchcraft just so they can get their land.Then when the Japanese were forced from their homes, lots of the white people stole their household items and other pieces of property.
After the attacks on Pearl Harbor, Japanese Americans, mostly on the West Coast, were forced out of their homes and had to relocate in camps for several years. In the aftermath of the 9/11 attack, President Bush, as well as, the American public tried to avoid that kind of reaction against Muslim Americans. It amazing how in 1941 Americans listened to the news of Pearl Harbor on the radio and on 9/11 Americans watched the attack live from the television or even on a
Why did Japan attack Pearl Harbor? If you were threatened by an individual, would you throw the first punch or wait for the attack. This is how Japan felt when they were trying to dominate Asia. On Sunday December 7, 1941 the Japanese attacked the United State’s biggest naval base, Pearl Harbor. This attack was a turning point for the United States because this was one factor that brought them into World War II to fight against the Axis Powers.
Today, Canada promotes multiculturalism and is generally accepting of people of all ethnic backgrounds. However, this was not always the case as the Canadian government often mistreated minority groups such as the Jewish and the Japanese, especially during World War Two. Anti-Semitism was always prevalent in Canada during the early twentieth century but as Germany developed these sentiments, Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King implemented immigration restrictions targeted at Jewish refugees as an attempt to keep them out of Canada. Additionally, the mistreatment of Japanese Canadians heightened after Japan attacked Pearl Harbour in 1941. Consequently, the Canadian government responded by forcibly removing Japanese Canadians who were
As the United States were planning on how to invade Japan, there had been a lot of controversy between Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Staff Admiral William Leahy, Secretary of War Henry Stimson as to how to attack Japan until Secretary of State James Byrnes brought up the idea of bombing Japan without any warning, shocking Japan into surrendering. According to document A, “Truman believed that it was his duty as president to use every weapon available to save American lives.” The quote from document A shows that Truman had to use anything available in order to save American
The end of Greater East Asia Coprosperity Continuing with the story, ( This was after the World War 2) after colonizing some countries the Japanese gave them to do hard work ,torturing them. This was something the other Asians did not expect so some really rebelled against this new order. Some were trying to call for help from their previous colonizers like us with the Americans. So things were getting out of hand ,and countries start to disappear from their hold until most of the Asian countries were free. Japan signed an instrument in a sign to surrender on USS Missouri in Tokyo Harbor in September 2, 1945.
Internment Camps were sort of like witch hunts because people were making judgments on their fellow citizens based on what they thought might happen, ancestry and what people looked like as well. This happened because the Americans were frightened for their country, family and way of lie, so they thought that they would be safer if the Japanese weren’t free. The Japanese Internment Camps were very similar to the Salem witch Trails because neither the accused “witches” or the Japanese Americans weren’t given the opportunity to defend themselves against persecutions. The Japanese were forced to go to these camps regardless of whether they were born in Japan or the US. They were presumed guilty of being a threat instead of being presumed
Another group was soon persecuted after the Chinese immigrants were deported: the Japanese, who had come to work in mines and agriculture on the West Coast. Just as Americans today treat Mexican immigrants, the Japanese were seen as threats to security. A “yellow peril” ensued, and governments proposed pieces of legislation to segregate the Japanese from other American citizens (Brown). The unfair treatment of Japanese-Americans parallels with the current decrees of politicians that immigrants are stealing jobs and are a threat to U.S.
Though unrelated to Jews, the aftermath of the bombing in Pearl Harbor (December 7, 1941), led to many disputes and the U.S government segregated the Japanese from everyone else. They were put into internment camps for several years. Not only Japanese had to be relocated, but it triggered the United States to officially declare war on Japan and got the involvement in World War II. Before that however, the country 's President at the time, (Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S.
