It all started when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, causing the U.S. citizens to be extremely furious and unite the support of media to create propagandas. The Japanese are portrayed with slanted small eyes and buck teeth- undermining the intelligence of their race; moreover, they were even dehumanized and depicted as animals. The U.S media was very biased when comparing the Chinese to the Japanese. While the Chinese man had an amiable appearance and a slender body, the Japanese had an unpleasant frown on his face and was described as short and stout (Miles). The article “WWII Propaganda: The Influence of Racism” also states that “The Chinese man’s occupation implies that he helps people, while the title of Japanese warrior alludes to danger and disloyalty,” (ibid).
SECTION 1:- This investigation will explore the question: To what extent did the intensity of the battle of Shanghai affect the atrocities done in the Nanking Massacre? The years 1894 to 1945 will be the focus of this investigation, to allow for an analysis of Chinese - Japanese relations from the first Sino - Japanese war, foreign relations from early stages as well as the major changes made in the Japanese society. A key source used in this investigation was “The rape of Nanking” written by Iris Chang. This book uncovers the horrors of the massacre and the hell-like life the civilians and POWs had to suffer. The origin of this book is valuable because Iris Chang is an experienced journalist who spend 2 years of her life gathering information
The Nazi’s ideology that the Jews should be blamed for political wrongdoings led to this atrocity of the Nazis persecuting the Jews in an effort to eliminate their race. The persecution of Jews by the Nazis was that they were separated from society and they were given armbands to show they were Jews. In summary, the German Nazis used persecution and ideology to commit the atrocity of the liquidation of ghettos
The essay talks about how this attack stands out as a perverse symbol of racist violence. The presumes, Chin attackers, puts the blames toward Asian Americans are the reason that cause their unemployment because of the Japanese advancement at the time, anyone who is bearded with Asian
When we compare all these three movies, Bullet in the Head has more concern about social problems because it indicates Vietnam War and its consequences. For example, it criticizes militarism because in the movie soldiers (especially non-Americans or Vietnamese) kill people without any reason and violate them. The most crucial scene about the corruption in the system is robbery scene because when two friends burgled the jeweler, military forces came and gather gold from jewelry. Then, kill the owner and moved on. Therefore, this scene is a big reflector for the society and corruption.
Adolf Hitler abused his power negatively by killing/torturing many jews and treating everyone but the dominant person in his eyes poorly. He also caused countless other problems naming him as one of the worst leaders in history. Adolf Hitler had a lot of power being the ruler of Nazi Germany, but he used to poorly, with power like that many good can be done but Adolf Hitler used it in a negative way. He used his power to create a genocide against Jews and focus the country towards war instead of improvement of the nation. Adolf Hitler, was an aspiring artist but there was no success coming his way therefore he screened for Austrian military service in 1914, and was put into war when world war 1 started, being deployed in october 1914 to Belgium.
This example shows two examples of the government altering information. First, the Japanese government told citizens that Chinese people were inferior and that invading their country and killing them was their duty. Therefore, the japanese soldiers were ruthless when fighting, resulting in a extremely violent
The hate, greed, and ignorance of people have caused suffering for many others throughout the history of mankind. “If you are greedy or angry or ignorant (the three Buddhist poisons), you are condemned to an endless cycle of unhappiness.”(Arthur Dobrin D.S.W.) Hate and greed have overtaken people and have caused them to make actions that led to a genocide, or a mass killing of people. Ignorance did not help at all and actually kept the genocides going. An example of this would be the colonists and the Native Americans.
To the innocent adolescent soldiers who faced shell shock all throughout the first world war to the homeless veterans on the streets today. You may think that war does not hold any positive attributes. Our first instinct when we hear war is to think of bloodshed, hostility and destruction. Although these words express the negative sides to war. I am going to decipher the positive benefits of war and show you how it has benefited us greatly in our everyday lives and where we would be without it.
One more subtle point Jane Alexander made was that the state and those who condoned it were cowards. It is no secret that South African artists have been using the image of the human body in extreme anxiety or pain to view the inhumane conditions in their society for a long time. In the 1960’s during the Apartheid era disfigured, broken and otherwise abused bodies was an ordinary sight due to violent actions of the police towards black
Whilst the Japanese were being sent to the camps, many people on the west coast were hanging racist signs in storefronts and neighborhoods giving the obvious notice that Japs were not welcome. This attitude of hatred is what caused the poor conditions of the internment camps on the west coast, carried out and justified by the idea that the white Americans were better than the Japanese Americans due to the suspicion of espionage. The Japanese Americans were thought of as spies therefor they were thrown into internment camps where the discriminatory attitude of western Americans brought upon their unjust treatment. The pressure of WWII caused the American government to make unecessary precautions in hopes of protecting a nation when they in fact they divided it. This event caused discrimination towards not only Japanese people but all Asian Americans and its wars like these that spark hatred within
The enemy was set on destroying the other sides’ economic resources. The allies bombed Munich was to strike fear into the hearts of the Germans. The allies used this tactic throughout World War 2. This tactic would later be known as “terror bombing”. They also did this was to tear the Germans apart physically and mentally.
