This belongs in the courage section because he went from being a good guy to a bad guy, if he didn 't do that he would probably be killed like the rest of his family was. The last of many reasons Benn Kamm was courageous was, “Ben volunteered for dangerous missions blowing up cargo trains carrying supplies to German troops. Often, he and his fellow partisans discovered Jews hiding in the forests. “We took them with us” Ben said. “Old, young, children.
The article,“Teens Who Fought Hitler” by Lauren Tarshis, tells the story of a man named Ben a Jewish boy who lived during the Holocaust. Ben lived in Poland during a terrible time were Jewish people all over Europe were dying because of Germany 's leader Adolf Hitler. Ben had to face some challenges during this time and had courage for others around him and this essay will talk all about how he did these things. But first we need to talk about what was happening around this time.
The article, “Teens Against Hitler”, by Lauren Tarshis, describes Ben Kamm, a Jewish boy, and his fight against war and the prejudice Nazis had for the Jewish people. The article describes, “One of the darkest and most evil chapters in history- the Holocaust.” Ben Kamm and his family lived in Warsaw, Poland in the 1920’s. “Germany had been struggling since 1918 when it was defeated in WW1.” Adolf Hitler was planning on annihilating all the Jews in Europe.
At last, When soviet union came to poland, SS was ordered to murder all of the jews and flee away but before any actions were taken schindler somehow managed to transfer the SS of area. Nearly all of the germans fled away because of the fear of soviet union but schindler stayed for a while risking his life. He gave vodka and bolt of cloth from one of the nazi’s abondended warehouse. So, jews can have something to trade for food and wear while staring their new life. After supporting in these hard times schindler 's last words to his jewish workers before fleeing himself were “You are Free”.
Genocides are the mas murdering of any specific group of people and German Nazis succeeded in murdering six million jews in a short span of time before and during World War II. Not only were they able to murder six million jews they were able to dehumanize and put fear in many more through anti-semitic ways. A group of people that were living successful lives not fearing harm or believing anything to that extent could happen. For something of that magnitude to happen there had to be planning involved which is why the Wannsee Conference was held. The top Nazi officers met at this conference and discussed plans of what they should do in their future where they came up with the Final Solution.
During the Holocaust millions of people were killed by the Nazis because they were not the ideal race. The Nuremberg Trials were held in Nuremberg, Germany. The judges of the trials were from Great Britain, the Soviet Union, the United States, and France. These trials were held to bring justice to all the lives lost during World War two. After the Holocaust, the Nuremberg Trials were held to bring justice to Nazi officials, Industrialists, but failed to punish those who escaped.
The invasion of Europe started when the Nazis attacked Poland on September 1, 1939. The invasion of Europe was when Hitler and his Nazis stormed the majority of Europe and took over the countries. This topic is so interesting to me because I am very interested in the holocaust and the invasion of Europe was a big part of what started the sending of Jews to concentration camps, and I think most people should be interested in this topic because of the fascination and new information it brings to the holocaust, because most people think that the holocaust was just Hitler taking Jews to concentration camps, and yes that was a part of the holocaust but there is so much more to explain and talk about. Why did Hitler decide to invade Europe?
The Partisans were people who used guerilla combat tactics revolt against the Nazi’s and save the lives of many Jews as explained in “Resistance During the Holocaust”. The text states that the “Jewish partisans believed that they would never see home or family again, especially since the Nazis had already murdered most of their families. ”(P18). Jews that joined the Partisan force faced the reality that they most likely may never return home so they may as well fight until they could no longer. Believers in active resistors wanted to die knowing that they made a difference and had a direct effect on the Nazi’s instead of succumbing to the wrath of hitler.
Because the Hitler Youth were trained to adore Hitler and his will and rise-up against resistance, when Hitler preached that the Jews were responsible for the hardships of the German nation and laws were passed against them, it was these people who enforced those laws. These youth were the Germans who imprisoned lawbreakers with violence and death. When World War II broke out, it was these Germans who fought, killed, and died for the Nazis. It was also these Germans, former members of the Hitler Youth, who rounded-up and eventually killed millions of Jews and other lesser people, in what is known as the
As Germans had been defeated in the First World War, they were experiencing great economic and social hardship during the late 1920 and early 1930s. They were forced to pay huge compensations to the Allies, and they suffered terrible inflation and mass unemployment. Hitler scapegoated the Jews for the hardship, and came up with anti-Semitic policies, which later led to a complex plan to eliminate the Jewish people. The main actors of the holocaust in Poland were Hitler, the Nazis, Jews and Poles. The greatest number of Gentile rescuers of Jews during that time were the Poles, despite the fact that only in Poland were people immediately executed if caught trying to save Jews.
The Holocaust The Holocaust is one of the more well known events in history, it’s a really bad time to be in but this did happen to these people and for no reason. The Holocaust is when the Nazi’s from Germany attacked the Jews Adolf Hitler led this attack and he and his men wiped out approximately 6,000,000 Jews. The reason for this was Hitler entered Germany into the olympics thinking he would win easily. Well he soon found out that he wasn’t the best and he lost.
When reading this book The Wave, by Todd Strasser, you are expected to have some basic knowledge about World War two and how Nazis killed the Jews, Hitler. Without any knowledge of World War two then you would not understand the main idea of the experiment, which was to show the senior history class what it’s was like being a Nazi and getting an understanding of why and how they influenced and brain washed all those people into doing such cruel and inhuman act of killing over 11 million jews. The character of Todd Strasser intuitively understood this need in teenagers, and the rapid spread of The Wave was due in great part to their vulnerability to the most attractive aspects of Fascism and Nazism: belonging to a group that is special in
However, after the reclaiming of Masada, the Sicarii, assassins who were Jewish extremists, decided to take matters into their own hands. The Sicarii drove the Romans out of Jerusalem using brute strength and sheer numbers. They then set Ananias’ house on fire, set Herod’s palace on fire, and burned all of the Jew’s food, to make the Jews want to fight against the Romans because they would have nothing to lose. Later, the Romans were slaughtered by the Sicarii. Many Jews also died from starvation, which makes the reaction of the Sicarii neither a success nor a failure.
In late 1942, a special mission saved over a hundred Jews from the Iwie ghetto just as the Germans planned to liquidate it. The "Kalinin" also raided the surrounding area for weapons and ammunition, taken from dead Germans and Russians, food, clothing, medicine and whatever else would assist in their survival. Thus the Bielski brothers differed from other "otriad" or "partisan groups” where only men participated and whose primary purpose was to fight the Nazis, although the Bielskis did participate in active acts of resistance, but everyone fought that was old enough to fire a weapon. In contrast Levi’s book describes how mostly men and a few women fought.
We should always remember the Holocaust because it is a crucial part of our history that changed the world and formed many of the ideas we still believe in today. When Hitler started attacking the Jews and not just discouraging their acceptance people started reevaluating their feelings and beliefs. He wasn’t just attacking the Jews though he was basically killing off anyone who didn’t have blond hair and blue eyes. As well as Jehovah’s Witness and Romas (Gypsies). The Holocaust made a lot of people think hard, I mean how would they react if they were the ones being attacked?
