The justification for their atrocious actions was that they were simply following orders from their superiors. Milgram wanted to find an answer to the question ”Could it be that Eichmann and his million accomplices in the Holocaust were just following orders? Could we call them accomplices?” (Milgram, 1974) Milgram’s experiment
A youngster during that time called the camps “FUN” because they were trained,”brainwashed”. A child’s day would start off like any other kid,wake up and go to school. At school all jewish teachers lost their positions so, every teacher was a supporter of hitler or a soldier from hitler 's army. The main objective was to get the students to learn that they were the “superior race” and leadership was a skill they had to master. Instead
After he has learned the list of word pairs given to him, the ‘educator’ evaluated him by saying a word and asking the learner to recall it’s pair from the word list given to him. The educator is notified to direct an electric shock when he commits an error, increasing the voltage each time. There were 30 dials on the shock generator stamped from 15 volts (slight shock) to 450 volts (severe shock). (Milgram, 1963) According to Milgram (1963), the learner gave primarily wrong replies (intentionally) and for each of these, the educator gave him an electric shock. At the point when the educator declined to regulate a shock, the experimenter was to give an arrangement of orders/jab to guarantee they continued.
Sonderkommandos who by Primo Levi standards were in a league with the SS officers, were the ones to put a stop to the horrors of Treblinka II, it made me question Levi’s testimony and question if his judgment was clouded by his opinion instead of facts. One thing that I know for sure is that Sonderkommandos may be viewed by many as perpetrators, but no one can question that they were heroes for having destroyed Treblinka II and stopping the killings of Jews by thousands. It’s essential to grasp the concept and understand the importance of The Shoah not only by a survivor or someone who was directly affected by The Shoah, but to learn about it by a second party. The reason it’s important to learn it from a second party is that they bring an outside look that is not affected by emotions or
Holocaust denial and distortion are forms of antisemitism. They are generally motivated by hatred of Jews and build on the claim that the Holocaust was invented or exaggerated by Jews as part of a plot to advance Jewish interests.” (Holocaust Denial and Distortion). There are truly people who think this way and believe the Jews were just using this “fake” story to help themselves. People need to see and understand what the jews went through, because we can’t just let that slide as if it were nothing, something like this needs to be seen, no matter how gruesome. It needs to be seen and spread, until there is absolutely no denying what happened.
Was hitler born an authoritarian or did his environment led him to such a desire power? “Life as Adolf Hitler” is regarding Menno Meyjes’ critically acclaimed film, Max, written by Zayda Ojeda. Ojeda’s thesis states that Hitler’s environment encouraged him to dictate Germany because Hitler was rejected, felt mistreated, and unnoticed. The main claim of Ojeda’s paper is that Hitler struggled with being mistreated by a fictional character in the film, named Max Rothman. Ojeda’s paper is very well written, although, there are still some parts of the paper that can be changed and reconstructed.
When Adolf Hitler came into power in Germany he made an anti- Semitism an official government policy. Although Jewish life before the Holocaust was peaceful at first, discrimination erupted which promoted anti- semitism, enacted laws, and forced Jews into ghettos. In the 1800s before the Holocaust, discrimination against Jews started to become a problem in the country of Germany. The Germans began to isolate the Jewish people because of their race rather and religious
They were each responsible for the false teaching and doctrines that they were transmitting to the Jews. The Pharisees belief that the Law as open to interpretation as well as the great value they placed on the Law, especially the oral Law, saw them placing importance on their works and outward piety. Jesus saw the Pharisee's self-righteousness and pride. In Luke 11:39 He tells them, “Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.” Unlike the Pharisees, the Sadducees believed the was that the Law that was given to Moses was to be interpreted literally. They rejected such ideas as immortality, the resurrection of the dead, and the existence of angels.
They also believed that Germans were way important than other races. Mr. Adolf Hitler became Germany’s head of state in 1934 and in this same year, he introduced Anti- Semitism again. Anti- Semitism deals with the discrimination of the Jews. Therefore, when Anti- Semitic laws were produced, Mr Hitler made sure that Jews were persecuted, that children would no longer go to school, keep pets or what not. To him, the Jews were a problem that needed to be removed.
All participants gave their informed consent and those who were under 18 obtained parental consent. Participants were tested in empty classrooms and an effort was made to keep participants separated so they couldn’t see each other’s answers. No talking was allowed throughout and a researcher was present during the whole study to keep an eye on participants. Initially the participants are asked to carry out the Oxford Happiness Scale, the results were interpreted by researchers and from this were assigned into one of two groups, happy or less happy. After a 2 hour break both groups were given the Big 5 Personality questionnaire under the same conditions, again researchers interpreted the results
