The Nazis believed the Germans were “racially superior” and the Jews were inferior (The Holocaust). Over 6 million Jews lost their lives during the Holocaust (The Holocaust). The main targets were Jews, disabled, Gypsies, and slavic people (The Holocaust). If they did not match the “social norms”, they were killed (The Holocaust). Between the years 1941 and 1944, Jews were deported to concentration camps where they were then killed (The Holocaust).
The Holocaust and the Cambodian Genocide were two major events in history that caused millions of innocent people and even children to die. Although the actions that occurred during the Holocaust differ from those that occurred during the Cambodian Genocide, they happen to have many similarities. Since October 24th, 1945, the United Nations had the intention “to engage diplomatically as armed conflict is absolutely unacceptable” . Even though the United Nations stated this, genocides still continued to occur. This is seen in the cartoon, by the hundreds of skeleton heads with graves above the skeletons which is implying that the United Nations did not succeed in their goal (cartoon).
The genocide of the Jews was a culminaion of a decade of German police. The Jews were dehumanized in many different ways. One way they were dehumanized was by the Hungarian police and they were yelling “Faster, Faster! Move, you lazy good- for nothing!”
¨ The- Germans were already in town, the fascist were already in power, the verdict had already been pronounced, yet the Jew of sight continued to smile ¨ ( Wiesel 18).The Holocaust was Adolf Hitlers plan to exterminate the European Jews. During world war ll six million Jews were massacred by the Nazis. The Jew was forced to a camp and the Nazi will also forced Jew to work to the death and if they seem too weak to work they will be executed. Also They made camp for the Jews for them to all stay in one place because the German believed the Jew was the cost for world war 1 and the jews was making the world to a worst place.
They were murdered in either massacre and individual killings, or from systematic ill-treatment, exposure, and starvation. In the novel Forgotten Fire, the main social issue, the Armenian Genocide, compares to the Holocaust as they both were caused by a hatred of a specific race, they both resulted in extreme violence and immense casualties, and they both had many heroes who made considerable sacrifices on behalf of those being persecuted. The Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide were sparked by the hatred of a specific minority race, the Jews, and the Armenians. The leaders of the countries involved in genocides often promoted them and contribute to the heinous crimes.
American Jewish writer, and political activist Elie Wiesel, in his sympathetic speech “The Perils of Indifference” to send a strong message to the audience. As a survivor of the Holocaust, he supports his claim through his speech explaining the dangers of indifference from first hand experience. Specifically in his speech he refers to himself, “A young Jewish boy [..] woke up in a place of eternal infamy called Buchenwald”(par 1).. In addition, Wiesel use of rhetorical questions is for the audience to question or to think about indifference. Wiesel’s purpose is to warn people about indifference in order to “save” our future.
The Armenian Genocide caused generations of pain and loss of the rich heritage of the Armenians. Not only did the genocide cause major human losses, but also caused a major psychological and moral blow at the attempt to exterminate the Armenian nation from the root. The Armenian Genocide resulted with around 1.5 million Armenians massacred, with only around half a million surviving the genocide. The loss of family, friends and the Armenian community, the genocide had a staggering blow on the Armenian race. The survivors escaped with merely their lives and the horrid memories of the cruel and inhumane nature of the Young Turks.
To start off, both the Armenians and the Jews were dehumanized and thought of as an inferior race. They were looked down upon and treated like animals. The people who were against the Jews and the Armenians did not care what happened to them. Most of the time they would either be worked to death or murdered. Albert Ward talked about how the Armenians were mistreated in his book, Critical World Issues: Genocide.
The Holocaust was a genocide in which Adolf Hitler, ruler of the Nazi party, and his associates conducted the mass murder of over six million Jews. Nazi Germany under the dictatorship of Adolf Hitler was responsible for the brutal, inhuman slaughter of the Jews from 1933 to 1945. Many German civilians were ashamed of the callous, blasé and insensitive killings led by their own ruler and therefore deny any knowledge of the events of the Holocaust. Their claims to be unaware of the events of the Holocaust are not valid and are only used as a shield for their pride and dignity. Adolf Hitler and the Nazis believed that the Germans were the ‘perfect race’ and all other races were deemed ‘inferior’.
Primarily, the Holocaust differs from that of the Armenian genocide because their overall acceptance and knowledge by the world. For example, the Holocaust is known and accepted by the vast majority of people throughout the world; in some countries it is even a law to deny the Holocaust took place. On the other hand, even to this day the Turkish government is reluctant to accept the fact that the Armenian genocide occurred. Furthermore, differences can be found in the lifestyle of the Armenians and that of the Jews. During the Holocaust, Jews were often forced to live in ghettos and had many laws which gave them less rights than other non-Jewish people.
All the genocides have one thing in common which to eliminate a certain group for stupid untrue reasons, with only the motives being different. The Holocaust might be the most documented genocide but like all other genocides such as Bosnian and Bangladesh genocide, equally evil and heinous to the full max. In this essay, will be compared the Nazi Holocaust and Bosnian genocide. Like all genocides, the two genocides has extremely high number of people killed, tortured and put under evil actions. The motives behind the Holocasut were to create a “perfect race” which is the Aryan race in the world by eliminating the ones that are not, jews being inhuman and other races being sub-humans in the eyes of the Nazi.
After being named Chancellor, Hitler began what is known as the Holocaust. The Holocaust started on January 30, 1933 and lasted until May 8, 1945. The Holocaust was the mass murder of 6 million Jews (1.5 million of them being children). The Germans started burning the books that the Jews had written, removing Jews from their occupations and their schools, and taking their businesses and properties(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library). The Jews were forced from their houses to go to live in ghettos away from all society(An Introductory History of the Holocaust-Jewish Virtual Library).
A genocide is the the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation, the Holocaust and the Cambodian Genocide are examples of this. After the Holocaust, in 1945 the United Nations realized that genocides were a continuously happening. They realized they needed to prevent genocides and global conflict in general. The Holocaust began on January 30, 1933 when Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany and ended May 8, 1945 when the war officially ended.
The Holocaust was a horrific tragedy which started in January of 1933 and ended in May of 1945, the Holocaust was the mass murder of millions of people. The word was derived from the Greek word that meant Sacrifice to the Gods (Steele 7), also called the Shoan which is the Hebrew word for catastrophe (Steele 7). So many countries took place in this 12-year genocide, including, “Germany, Italy, Japan, Romania, Hungary, and Bulgaria, which were also known as the Axis Powers” (Steele 34). But, although there were all those countries they were all part of one larger group called the Nazis, were the ones who were killing all the different denominations of people. (Bachrach 58).
First of all the Jewish Holocaust; All start when Adolf Hitler became the authority of Germany. Holocaust is a word of Greek origin meaning “sacrifice by fire.” The Nazis who came to power in Germany in January 1933, believed that the Germans were “superiors” than the Jews, were “lesser”, were a threat to the “German Community.” In 1933, the Jewish population of Europe is located in more than 9 million. The majority of the Jews lived in countries that Nazi Germans would occupy during The World War II.
