Thousands of prisoners died from starvation, cold or exhaustion. The marches were usually held in winter, and prisoners had to walk miles with little rest while SS guards swapped groups to rest. Any prisoners that fell or lagged behind were shot and left on the road. The prisoners scooped up snow to drink, and were given little food throughout the march. They could not save the food to make it last longer and had to eat it at once for fear of other stronger captives stealing it (Ancona-Vincent).
Due to the many great losses at Pearl Harbor, the Navy never showed up. The American-Filipino force was starving, deprived of proper supplies, soldiers, and food. The force had only badly trained soldiers due to the high number of deaths during the attack on Pearl Harbor. It had been
Many people were sick and underfed (Warsaw). Illness was also a constant looming threat because partly of the food, and that the ghettos were always damp and wet (Allen 38). Many Jewish organizations around the world tried to help ghettos in Germany and Poland, but the help wasn’t enough (Warsaw). Arguably the worst and definitely the biggest ghetto during the war was Warsaw Ghetto. An estimated 83,000 Jews and minorities died in the ghetto, mainly due to sickness and starvation.
They stayed there from 1942 to 1945 due to executive order 9066. There civil rights as well as there freedom were taken away from them without choice. A major impact that persuaded the government into interning Japanese Americans was the bombing of Pearl Harbor. In the article, Japanese Americans: The War at Home , the author Roger Daniels explains part of the issue, “On December 7, 1941, Japan launched a sneak attack on the
How would you feel if one day you were told to leave your whole life behind to live in captivity just because people halfway across the world did something wrong? This horror story was all too true for the thousands of Japanese Americans alive during World War II. Almost overnight, thousands of proud Japanese Americans living on the west coast were forced to leave their homes and give up the life they knew. The United States government was not justified in the creation of Japanese internment camps because it stripped law-abiding American citizens of their rights out of unjustified fear. Furthermore, the United States should do more to compensate the families of those impacted by internment because the recompense provided initially was minimal and should be considered an affront to the memory of the victims.
Harry S. Truman and His Decision to Drop the Atomic Bomb Harry S. Truman once said, “Carry the battle to them. Don’t let them bring it to you.” In World War II, that is exactly what he did. While Japan was breaking treaties and fighting with allied countries, the United States was developing a powerful weapon that would cripple Japan and end World War II. This weapon was called the atomic bomb. After it was fully developed and tested, Harry S. Truman made the decision to drop this deadly weapon on two cities in Japan, Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The written work of Eri Hotta entitled Japan 1941: Countdown to Infamy, narrated the succession of events which took place between Japanese officials and leaders which led to the attack of Pearl Harbor. It showed the political unrest and civic instability of Japan that resulted into the bombing. Eventually, such attack was not condoned by the military forces of the United States and they countered the aggression by also bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Thousands of lives were lost and destroyed. Accordingly, the “ Japanese Emperor Hirohito was one of the Japanese officials who expressed reservations about going to war” (Timms).
Many were left homeless.The debate over whether it was a successful event still remains contestable today. This horrid attack changed Japan as the US accelerated Japan to surrender after the seconding bombing and left Japan filled with a massive cloud of radiation. As a result of the radiation in Japan people would still die and suffer many decades after the attack. This event is solemnly remembered as a legacy for all the lives lost and still to this day the bombing still has a great toll on the world. In 1945, the US dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima on the 6th of August, then four days the US dropped another bomb on Nagasaki.
The Environments of the Indians were not good for walking on the trail, the journey is long and and dangerous the weather was bad and many died. Dozens of people buried at each stop? ⅓ of the people who walked died, this is about 4,000 people but though estimates set as high as 6,000. The main reason these people died is because of Dehydration.Dehydration is when the human body has the loss of bodily fluids such as water. The body sweats off more water than it takes in and when they were walking the trail they had limited amount of water and sweat because of the walking.
He believed that “the upstart Japanese would soon be taught a salutary lesson.” He also wrote to his mother: “So the war has begun, our brave men will surely be victorious over the foe.” In contrast, the Russian navies were “all sunk in a single day in the battle of Tsushima.” Nicholas II still did not awaken; he even showed his pugnacity to his own people on the Bloody Sunday. On January 9, 1905, thousands of protesters were killed by Nicholas II’s infantries. After that day, Nicholas wrote on his diary: “Serious disorders took place in Petersburg when the workers tried to get into the Winter Palace. The troops were forced to fire in several parts of the city and there are many killed and wounded.” Even Rasputin did not had the capability to stop the Czar’s pugnacity. When Nicholas II decided to go to war with Germany in 1915, Rasputin wrote to him: “Let Papa not plan for war, for with war will come to the end of Russia and of yourselves, you will lose to the last man.” Then the Czar “read it, tore it into shreds and gave the
