The Holocaust In the late 1930’s Adolf Hitler had decided that the world would be better off if there were no Jewish people. All Jewish kids were kicked out of all Activities and school. The Gestapo Police were policemen that only followed Hitler's orders, they were ordered by Hitler to imprison or kill all unwanted people, such as blacks, Polish, disabled, and homosexuals. (Mackay 6) The Holocaust was a murder of 6 million Jewish people. That was over 40% of the world's Jewish population.
“Once the SS guards got ahold of the victims they were beaten terribly, starved, and even murdered” (The Concentration Camps: The Treatment of Concentration Camp Victims). They did this to the victims who were mostly Jews because they wanted to purify the German race. They used propaganda to spread the ideals of National Socialism. “Propaganda was used to force beliefs and religions on the public, shown through
Yes, I did see this, with my own eyes… children thrown into the flames.” (Wiesel 32). The Nazis were heartless and even threw babies into the pits to be burned to death. Mankind is to be civilized, equal, and just and this quote shows that these things are of no importance and that man cannot distinguish between moral and evil if they think that throwing babies into the flames to be burned is okay. Another example was when a young pipel was thought to be part of a sabotage against the camp officials and was sentenced to be hanged. On the day of the hangings, all the inmates had to attend and watch each and every inmate get hanged.
Jewish men and women are portrayed similarly to rats in Nazi propaganda, sneaking everywhere, stealing, and spreading disease. Nazi propaganda was effective because it began desensitising the inhumanity of the Jews to the christian populus. Furthermore, Jewish people are portrayed as: short, dirty, and hairy, further subhumanizing the jews and adding to the morality behind the genocide. How did these elements legitimize the systemic dehumanization of jews. Convincing the German people that Jews were subhuman was vital to the dehumanization, and ultimately, the attempted elimination of the Jewish People.
The German government and German society attempted to redefine Jews as sub-human, and then as creatures who deserved to die. They killed people, tortured them and made their loved ones closed their eyes for the last time. "A truck drew close and unloaded its hold: small children. Babies! Yes, I did see this, with my own eyes…children thrown into the flames."
The author of this paper, Stephen Underhill, has a PhD in communications from the University of Maryland, and is an associate professor at Marshall University, teaching multiple undergraduate and Master’s level courses (I googled him). As such, this is an articulate and well-structured paper. It does a good job of explaining Rhetorical homology, which is a theory I was not familiar with and how it applies to the incidents in Ferguson, Mo. However, that is where I stop with complimenting this article. As a law enforcement officer, I look at things impartially and do not let my personal feelings get involved.
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.
The Crucible Theme and Conflict The Crucible by Arthur Miller is filled with different themes and conflicts. Throughout the book you could pick up many different themes and conflicts, although I found many just one sticks out to me. If you tell the truth, good may come your way. When proctor is being accused and he confesses but the judge needed it in writing also, which he didn’t do. Following that theme in to the first conflict I have picked out, John Proctor doesn’t want his name to be ruined.
Historical thinking is the nature of human thoughts that normally doesn’t come naturally to us. We as everyday people, rather than historians, must grasp the knowledge of how to come to a greater understanding of what history is and how it genuinely affects our everyday lives. My understanding of history, is that it’s the knowledge and the circumstances of the past, present, and future that either has changed the historian’s perspectives of the world, or how those key experiences will guide the hands and minds of historians to establish a successful path for the future by avoiding the same miscalculations that people made in the past. There is some controversy among historians, who accredit that the only way to understand history is to “reduce it to its lowest terms” or with the “active participation of the historian.” While I believe these two concepts help us to understand history, however, I don’t believe that they are the only possibility for understanding the past. In other words,
Lincoln says " The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here" meaning, just because one has deceased does not mean the war has ended, the living should still continue what the dead can no longer do. Lincoln appeals to his audience's ethos (values and beliefs)
Concentration Camps “ Researchers found out that the Nazi’s had actually established about 20,000 camps between 1933 and 1945.” These camps were made to harm, kill, and force hard labor on the Jews. Concentration camps were mainly for the Jews to be put through harsh labor that caused many to die. The Jews were put into these camps because Hitler and the Nazi’s did not believe Jews belonged here on earth and that they only caused trouble. The Jew was mistreated and killed. “Concentration Camps were part of the “ Final Solution” a plan created by Hitler and the Nazi’s to exterminate the Jewish people.” “Imprisonment in a concentration camp meant inhumane forced labor, brutal mistreatment, hunger, diseases, and random executions.
The introduction of the plan, which is to destroy a group of people. The goal is to eliminate the entire group. Then would follow marketing, Hitler marketed to German soldiers promising an exciting new opportunity. He also marketed to German civilians with signs, parades, and propaganda. The last step would be to go through with their goal and actually commit mass murder.
“The first concentration camps were made to detain people without trial, usually under harsh conditions.” (www.theholocaustexplained.org) The Nazis did this because they discriminate and hate the Jews. “German authorities established camps to handle the masses of people arrested as alleged subversives.” (www.ushmm.org) Germany blamed the Jews for their loss of World War I. “Concentration camps held two purposes, these purposes were to demoralize and dehumanize the prisoners.” (www.owlspace-ccm.rice.edu) The Nazis tortured them and made them break on the inside. It was sad to be taken to a concentration camp because it meant that it was the end of your life.
From the start of human existence people were destined to be different whether it be by race, gender or color. However history has shown that this uniqueness has lead to the judgement of these attributes not their celebration. The law should not agree with this, but sadly it does. Human race has not yet gotten past this hump of legality, but they must in order to keep living in peace. Society as a whole should not feel the discrimination that they do, but rather the commemorator of them.
Actually, Genocide is all this joined into one bit of confusion and anger with the intent to destroy an entire group of people. The actual term “Genocide” did not become existent until 1944 when a Jewish Layer name Raphael Lemkin decided to describe the reasoning for the Nazi policies of methodical assassinations. He invented the word genocide by combining the Greek word 'genos ' (race) with the Latin word
