One thing that the Japanese did with the Chinese Soldiers was that they would call them cowards before either mercilessly beating them to death, or beheading them. They would rape the women from the age of 8 to older than 70. If they found anyone with their family they would make members of the family do horrible things to other family members, just to tear the family apart before killing them. Organization was used, as groups of Japanese soldiers would gather and go on mass killing sprees. Polarization was not used, because all of the Japanese already hated the Chinese, and they were already separated.
Throughout history there have been many terrible events and wars, however WWII proved to be one of the cruelest times there ever will be, and the Jews suffered the most during this time. The Holocaust is one of the most devastating events in human history as the Nazi’s killed millions. Nazi’s believed they were genetically and racially superior to everyone. In order to only have one perfect type of person in Germany, using a method called ‘ethnic cleansing’ the Nazi’s tried to eliminate the unwanted such as the handicapped and homosexuals, however none suffered as much as the Jewish people. In a period of 12 years,
Just being instantly sent off that have men with dogs and guns without knowing where and why you were leaving your home with strangers is something that would really change how you see the world. Many kids died during the Holocaust, but why, and how? A total of 1.5 million children were murdered: 1.2 million Jews, tens of thousands of Gypsys, and thousands of handicapped across Europe. The innocent children that were not even born were killed by abortion as soon as one of the Germans found out the mother was pregnant with the infant. Babies were assumed to never survive, therefore they had no chance of living so the mothers were immediately told they had to drown all surviving infants in barrels otherwise the mother would be killed.
First he talks about how awful the Nanjing Massacre, commonly known as the great rape, was to the people of China. The Nanjing Massacre occurred when Imperial Japan raided the Chinese City of Nanjing to further their empire. Japans military leader at the time wanted his soldiers to be cold and savage. The military leader made it legal and encouraged for soldiers to kill and rape all the citizens captured in Nanjing. When the Japanese were finally finished, 300,000 innocent Nanjing citizens had been murdered.
This means that a leader must have no mercy and punish hard to keep their people in line. This philosophy applies quite a lot to Hitler, for example, Kristallnacht (the night of broken glass). On the night of November 9, 1938, violence and hatred against Jews broke out across the German Reich and thousands of Jews were captured and killed. The morning after the massacres, 30,000 German Jewish men were arrested for the "crime" of being Jewish and sent to concentration camps, which was a harsh punishment. De Nacht der langen Messer (The night of the long knives) is another example and was a purge that took place in Germany in which Nazi soldiers carried out numerous political homicides on 77 leading figures of the left-wing Strasserist faction of the Nazi Party.
The Holocaust is the most recognized genocide in modern history, claiming millions of innocent lives, and indiscriminately destroying the livelihood of everybody opposed to the monstrous Nazi party, regardless of whether or not you were of the blonde haired, blue eyed Aryan race that Adolf Hitler had sought to create. Naturally, with the dark tide of oppression, came resistance from the oppressed themselves, the Jewish partisans. This resistance group was formed from the many thousands of the threatened European Jewish, and whether or not they were escapees or the inhabitants of ghettos, deportation camps, and death camps hardly mattered when it it came down to their purpose, aiding their people both physically and spiritually. The Jewish partisan
Many people believed that the Jews, a non-Christian people, had poisoned their water, causing the plague. This theory led to an extreme hatred of the Jews and the killing of thousands of them. Thousands of Jews were burned and tortured.“Those who wanted to baptize themselves were spared”(doc 7). During the plague was not the only time Jews were targeted for their beliefs. During the First Crusade, on the Christian’s way to defeat the Muslims in Jerusalem, they killed thousands of Jews in the Rhineland Massacres simply because of their non-Christian beliefs.
Explain the response of other nations towards the persecution of the Jews and were they mistreated in their land also? The holocaust was a destructive event caused by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, which created the death of not just Jews but Gypsies and homosexual. Germany 's allies known as Japan and Italy, including other nations, took little action towards the persecutions and had an inadequate response, due to various reasons. During 1944, Japan and Italy collected more detailed and frightful information on the mass killing of the Jews inside the concentration camps and series of tragedy that happened, which is an addition to why little action was taken from the allies and the countries. The reason of that being, the allies and involved
The Holocaust, meaning ‘sacrifice by fire’ (3), was a time in which mass murders were conducted by the Nazi Party. At this time, many of the Nazi’s policies were targeted towards the Jews as they were believed to be the reason that Germany lost the First World War and Hitler stated that ‘the personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew’ (3). During the Holocaust the Nazi Party not only targeted the Jews but they also targeted the Polish population, Prisoners of War, disabled people and Jehovah’s witnesses and many more. ‘The Holocaust wiped out many of the most educated and productive people in western Russia’ said by James A. Robinson (5). As a result of this segment of World War Two, the Jewish
The extermination of the Jews, known as the Holocaust, is simply the most violent, dreadful, and most deplorable event that has occurred in the world. Extremes were met during this time, and the tortuous schemes performed on the people of Jewish heritage were insane. This happened all because of one thing--a vicious fight for power. Power was needed for the Germans to function properly, they felt the need to eliminate all people who did not have a full German background, and discrimination was a severe problem in the 1930s. The appalling events were lead by a man named Adolf Hitler, who was a devious man himself.
Eleven million. Eleven million innEleven million. Eleven million innocent lives, mercilessly taken away in the blink of an eye. When most people think about the Holocaust, their thoughts are automatically directed to the six million Jews who were murdered. While it is true that Jewish people were the primary victims, several multiple other groups faced persecution based on their race, sexuality, beliefs, and handicaps – five million non-Jewish people were killed (Ridley, 2015).
During this time 6,000,000 Jews were killed, not by war, but rather at the hands of Germany. Hitler believed that Jews were an inferior race and was a threat to German purity. After years of being mistreated Hitler had a plan called the Final Solution, which was the attempt to extinct the entire Jewish Population. Germany would accomplish this by concentration camps that were set up in Poland. The Khmer Rouge was a revolutionary group who wanted to reconstruct Cambodian society.
On September 1st, 1939 Hitler and his army invaded Poland killing thousands of innocent poles. This is when War World II officially started. Hitler wanted to destroy the polish culture and replace it with his own. Anyone who stood in his way was slaughtered.The Nazi terror was, in scholar Norman Davies 's words, "much fiercer and more protracted in Poland than anywhere in Europe." It is believed that 1.8 to 1.9 million Polish civilians (non-Jews) were killed due to Hitler and his army, but that is disregarding the three million Jewish poles that were killed.
