( Hill, Laura. “Guided History.” The Great Purge of Stalinist Russia). Stalin’s purpose of this purge was to rid the communist party of political threats. He developed labor camps to hold his victims in, where almost all of them were executed. Victims were murdered by the Soviet Secret Police, the NKVD.
Some of the crimes that are punished by death are murder, drug trafficking, adultery, and witchcraft. In most countries, the top ways of execution and most common are electrocutions. hanging, shooting ,and the most common is Lethal Injection (Death Penalty: Pros and Cons). Some also claim that the death penalty does not always follow the rules that the death penalty is suppose to be clean, quiet and humane. A man sentenced to the death penalty named Joseph Wood who had murdered two people have a long stretched death.
They feared Hitler because he threatened to potentially wipe out and entire group of people. Hitler started the Nazi Party. The Nazis would segregate the Jews into neighborhoods called ghettos, where they would eventually be taken to work camps, where most were not expected to make it out alive. Hitler was responsible for the deaths of about 2.4 million Jews. There are many reasons Hitler can be considered a good leader, there are also many reasons he could be considered a bad leader.
During the Cambodian Genocide and the Holocaust, the officers beat and prodded the victims that did not meet their expectations and were abruptly displaced from their homes. In comparison to the Cambodians, Germany’s dictator, Adolf Hitler, had one goal to execute all Jews, just like how Pol Pot had a goal to kill all educated Cambodians. Both the Cambodians in the Cambodian Genocide and the Jews in the novel Night were treated similarly because both victims were displaced out of their homes, overworked, mistreated, and starved. Moreover, officers of the genocides starved the victims of the Holocaust and the
In addition, from March 1917 until July 1918, the Romanov’s were prisoners in their own country (Anastasia Nicholaievna Romanov 3). Suddenly, a dozen armed men burst into the room and gunned down the imperial family in a nail of gunfire ( Anastasia Nicholaievna Romanov 3). Bolsheviks had killed the family, burned and burried the bodies in a mass grave ( Anastasia Nicholaievna Romanov 3). Those who were still breathing when the smoke cleared were stabbed to death ( July 16, 1918: Romanov Executed 2). It is no surprise that the theorist had thought the Bolsheviks had killed the whole family including Anastasia.
The cruel treatment of the Chinese by Japanese soldiers represents the brutality behind the militaristic culture and their values of human lives. The first part of the story is from the perspective of the Japanese soldiers responsible for the crimes. The Japanese followed a series of beliefs that promoted the idea in which a soldier must die for his emperor, called bushido. These values ultimately led to the draconian treatment of the civilians; a level at which most historians can not even begin to understand. After the soldiers of Nanking were murdered protecting the civilians, no one was left to protect them.
Ottoman political authorities believed the easiest solution would be to ethically dispose the Armenian population. Is this really right? Imagine someone knocked and opened the door of a house. These individuals, political authorities, killed all males in the family, while, taking the rest of the family to a place of death and terror: this event lead to over a million Armenian deaths. During the Holocaust, the Germans viewed a variety of different ethnicities as political enemies and ethnically weak.
Such discrimination has even resulted in policies of ethnical cleansing and genocide. Genocide is the organised killing of a people for the express purpose of putting an end to their collective existence. That is, to wipe a certain category of people out as if they never existed. An example of this is the Armenian Genocide, the first genocide of the 20th century. It represents a major tragedy of the modern age, in which almost an entire nation was destroyed.
Like the Nazi’s cleansing Europe of it’s Jews, the Serbs aim was the ethnic cleansing of any Muslims or Croatian presence in Serbian territory. This stage was called classification because the Serbians were classifying them of their race and that's what started this horrible genocide. There plan of attack was in five steps, their first step was to urge Serb residents to leave the city while surrounding the town with artillery fire. The second was to execute the leader and intelligence of that town, third was to separate the women, children, and old men from those of fighting age. Then they would send women, children, and also the old men to concentration camps or national borders for the fourth step.
not only the government is violating human rights, but the Buddhist monks which is a big religion in Myanmar is saying that it’s ok to kill the Rohingya, the very very religion that the government officials practices. Myanmar government was seeking to get rid the country of its Muslim minority, “The government has confined more than 120,000 Rohingya men, women, and children to dozens of ill-equipped internment camps in eight townships of Rakhine State, and hundreds of thousands of others were forced out of the country, some to certain death at the hands of human traffickers.”(Smith 5). The Rohingya have to fled their home land and live in danger of the forest. They fled in fear of to be alive or
