The Nazi regime was obsessively controlling over any instances involving homosexual acts. Nazi’s aim was to create an Aryan race and by doing so their goal was to terminate all existing people who threatened that.During the Holocaust millions of Jews died but some gay men did not suffer the same fate. The Nazi’s believed that gay men were not defined by the homosexual act(s) they had been a part of, instead it was believed that after strict punishment and prosecution the men would revert to “normal” sexual behaviour. As we know now this is not true but the Nazi’s believed it because without their young male youth it was thought that the regime would fall apart. Heineman’s article discusses the obsession that some Nazi leaders had with homosexuality but also mentions that it was not all leaders who were more obsessive over homosexuals than the Jews, as Heineman mentions this meant that homosexuality might be punished to different degrees depending on the person accused.
Persecution is the elimination of a certain religious, ethnic, or political group to strengthen the government's power. Often times the government uses the tactic of scapegoating, or blaming a group for the country's flaws, to achieve this (Key Traits of Totalitarianism Handout). Hitler blamed the Jewish people for Germany’s loss in World War 1. The Jews were used as scapegoats to reduce the humiliation of the Germans for losing the war. Because of this, Hitler’s goal was to cleanse Germany of any backstabbing Jews (Growing Fascism in Germany Notes, pg 1).
The millions of African slaves who were taken to modern day South and North America were cut off from their African roots and eventually their culture was diluted and replaced by foreign beliefs. For example, modern-day Brazil was taken over by the Portuguese and the African slaves who were transported to Brazil began to develop a new race with the mulattoes and Natives of the land. Not only did a new race form but also the national language of the country is now Portuguese and their main religion is Christianity. African-Americans or Latin Americans have a lineage, which most probably dates back to an ancestry involved with the African diaspora, which causes racism in the workplace or in everyday life. The Africans who were transported through the trans Atlantic weren’t treated as humans but as goods.
How does this entice women? Simply put the church was the center of social life for many German women at the time, so it was not a dramatic shift. According to the reading “the church, not the state, had for generations been the center of a women’s public life. And Hitler presented himself as a messiah.” The Nazi party initially puts up the front that they wanted to coexist with the various religious organizations in Germany, well non-Jewish ones at least, but this was nothing more than just that as “ultimately, Hitler aimed at subverting Catholicism and Protestantism into a single pagan religion” one which he would lead. To far too many women this seemed ideal.
The Italian explorer Christopher Columbus is commonly credited for the discovery of the new world. The story of him discovering the new world is taught and accepted by the new generation of the population at an early age. However there is significant evidence that suggest that other groups arrived before Columbus such as the West Africans, Chinese and the Vikings .However the physical evidence of the presence of the West Africans before Columbus prior to 1462 will be discussed. One of the strongest pieces of evidence of the presence of the Africans came from the European explorers themselves. Firstly via Christopher Columbus himself in his journal.
To start with it is argued that the human species originated from Africa and then migrated to the rest of the world. This is shown by archeological and anthropological evidence found in Africa. It includes fossil finds in the Awash Valley in Ethiopia and Chad .This led to research that has concluded that all human beings have African ancestors. Thus it clearly shows that the first people on earth lived in Africa where the climate was warm. It is in Africa that they discovered fire and clothing that enabled them to keep warm.
In order for the readers, to properly do this and understand the feelings of the characters, the story must first have some credibility to it which in this case, is given by the theme of loss of faith in God. In the Holocaust, while it was a massacre of all non-Aryan races, Hitler particularly targeted the Jews and sought to exterminate them due to their faith. He does this by implementing a plan described by Saul Lerner in his Magill’s Literary Annual 1981 as “a comprehensive program of mass murder” (2). This plan involved first putting the Jews into ghettos, granting them nonperson status and eventually, shipping them to concentration camps. In these concentration camps, the Jews were given inhumane, brutal actions.
Africa is a continent rich is history that has been exploited and ravaged for generation. While often times through a European lens Africa is viewed as a country that is lost and needs saving, many people refer to Africa as the Mother Land. Africa has earned the name the Mother Land because many people believe that Africa was where the first humans originated. Scholars have debated for years as to where mankind originated and there are a myriad of different theories from a number of scientist. The two most popular or heavily supported theories are the multiple regional theory and the out of African theory.
The continent went from slavery and being almost entirely colonized, been victimized through political, Economic, social and cultural backwardness, to a continent in progress through promethean efforts. Being aware of its backwardness and determined to overcome it following decades of (into) independence, it understood that its salvation comes from its sons and daughters not from outside friends. Moreover, the history of mankind is the history of the black man since every new discovery confirms that black Africa is the cradle of humanity, add to that of being the cradle of civilization with the Pharaonic Egypt whose profound links with sub-Saharan Africa are no longer to be demonstrated since the work of the great Senegalese and pan-African scholar Professor Cheikh Anta Diop (19) followed by so many others. The late associate Professor from Burkina Faso, Joseph Ki-Zerbo had rightly reminded us that "In the beginning it was Africa. They discovered in Chad the oldest Australopithecus (Toumai) which is seven million years old to confirm Africa as the cradle of humanity.
Africa before 1500 ce was a time where many events happened that changed the civilization of Africa forever. Africa invented trades, cultures, traditions, and so many other things that affected Africa in many ways. There is a huge timeline that explains all the events that happen in Africa, what year they happen, and why they happen in the first place. Africa along with other certain continents had major events happened before 1500 ce. Since I chose Africa I will be explaining what was Africa before 1500 ce.
