While Jewish people should be recognized for their struggles, so should every other group. Disabled People Hitler didn’t want to have any disabled people in Nazi Germany. He thought that they were too much work and overall useless to society.
The Flagellants were very anti-Semitic, meaning that they did not like Jews. They were not the only people that were anti-Semitic because people all across medieval Europe had already believed that Jews were the cause of the black death. Many Jewish homes were born, drastically changing the life of many people. The pope disapproved of the flagellants and the flagellants disappeared after 1349(Edmond). The Flagellants are a good example of how the black death
Gandhi connects to the Holocaust because he had a positive impact on India and the Holocaust left a negative impact on the Jews, so they both left tremendous impacts. Also, they are similar because Gandhi felt what he was doing was right, so did Hitler. Another example is after Gandhi was arrested for no reason he did not think all police were mean , just as the Jews did not think all Germans were mean. Gandhi also caused riots just as Hitler caused riots.
Marian said “The decision for genocide was, therefore, the result of a failure of Nazi policy goals, rather than the result of Hitler’s desire to create a racial utopia” ( 87). Hitler’s views stem off an idea of a perfect race. The world can only include this Aryan race therefore Hitler believed he has to kill everyone who does not fit the qualities of the perfect race. Mayes explained “Hitler’s quest for global hegemony would likely make it impossible to expel the Jews beyond German living space, and thus a massacre was inevitable under any circumstances” (87). It was Hitler’s goal to kill all of the Jews.

Their main targets were Jews, Gypsies, and people with disabilities, afro-Germans, Jehovah Witnesses, homosexuals, and prostitutes. Hitler thought the Nazi Germany was becoming weaker because of people who lived there who he thought were ‘genetically weak”.

Thus, I believe we are not under the Law because it draws away Gentiles form the truth.
Many consider bystanders to be as guilty as perpetrators for not doing or saying anything in a time of crisis. Such was the case for the Holocaust. Bystanders during the Holocaust consisted of the civilians and countries who chose to distance themselves from what was really happening, instead choosing to justify the situation, or just not think of it.

The kippas aren 't really offensive and they don 't affect anyone.

When Tubal broke the news to Shylock, he responded by saying, “I am very glad of it.

People of color who grow up in America believe that their race/culture is not important because they are ashamed of there culture. People of color try to hide who they really are to fit into other races. This relates to me, because I am arabic and not a lot of people like arabs because they think i am a terrorist and i am going to bomb them. Growing up in America as a boy of another race I sometimes feel I like i want to change my race and i feel ashamed that feel that way about my race/culture.
