Encyclopedia Britannica describes this law as, “the Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour and the Law of the Reich Citizen—became the centerpiece of anti-Jewish legislation and a precedent for defining and categorizing Jews in all German-controlled lands.” The law also set strict regulations on marriage and business. Thus, a person of Jewish faith would have their basic human rights stripped right out of their hands Moreover, they were treated not as people but as “Untermenschen” or subhumans, just because of false accusations of the WW1 outcome. Part of the reason for society accepting these accusations was a result of the power and influence Hitler held at that time in
The Holocaust; probably one of the most brutal and horrifying genocides in the history of politics. It was the dark secret of Germany during World War II, As a result, the defeat of the Nazi’s sparked a huge newcomming, and with it, the formation of the United Nations. But that is not the main concern here. The events and documents that we have found about the Holocaust still horrify us today. Documentations such as the book Night by Elie Wiesel and the story of the White Rose show us how brutaly a person can treat one another, and the exents powerful people can go to in order to hold their power.
The movie Conspiracy was the opposite of what the book was trying to teach us and violates the principles that I preciously mentioned. Conspiracy was a movie based on 1942, which highlighted a secret meeting between Germans officers to determine the correct course of action when dealing with Jews. “Overall, we might say that the purpose is to enable

Symbols that tend to recur in books and other mediums tend to hold some significance to the story being told. Furthermore, symbols can add historical reference, or relay an underlying meaning that should be noted by the reader. In Watchmen, the recurrence of the Hiroshima lovers does both. First, the Hiroshima lovers has historical context, the Hiroshima lovers have been known throughout history from the bombing of Hiroshima Japan in World War II, by the United States. The impact of the bomb was so strong that it left imprints of individuals, such as the lovers on the sides of buildings and homes.
Allen vs. Bettelheim Woody Allen’s, Random Reflections of a Second-Rate Mind and Bruno Bettelheim’s, A Victim both give interesting perspectives on the events of the Holocaust. Though different, due to the angles of their writing, each author makes a clear statement on the tragedies of the event. To fully understand the statements made, one must account for the concepts of human nature, bigotry, and prejudice, whilst focusing on the comparison and contrast of the logos, ethos, and pathos of their writing. With this concept in mind, an apparent contrast in the logos of the works is present. In other words, Allen relies on the data of other people’s experiences for evidence and Bettelheim solely refers to his own memories.
The memoir “Night”, by Elie Wiesel provides insight into the terrors of the holocaust, a genocide of the jewish race and is described as “A slim volume of terrifying power” by the New York Times. One of the most important aspect of “Night” that differentes it from other World War II novels and causes it to receive such praise and acclaim is its ability to pull readers in and cause the readers to empathize with the characters in the book. One of the methods by which Wiesel achieves this is through his use of themes, such as the theme of loss of faith in god. Wiesel incorporates the theme of loss of faith in God in order to allow readers to empathize with the traumatic experiences of holocaust survivors. One such example of this is the apparent
In the movie it is never said that the nazis forced them into these horrible living conditions; they say it’s their “natural state”. That way, German people get a very negative image of Jews, it helps promoting anti-semitism. Hitler rationalized his crimes by altering information. He made jewish people look like vermin and then claimed that it was necessary to get rid of them, so he could exterminate them without people being too shocked. Changing information gives people a positive image of a bad
Historiography of the Holocaust Historiography essentially is “the history of history”. It looks into what historians have said about a given historically relevant event or topic, how their interpretations have changed over time and where, what and why are the disagreements between the historians. This paper tries to look into these aspects for the topic the Holocaust and explain how knowledge of the historiography of any given event is important in understanding the event itself. The Intentionalist historians like Lucy Dawidowicz see Hitler as a strong leader believe that the Holocaust was something that Hitler had planned for years Structuralist perspective Keywords Holocaust; Hitler; Jews; Intentionalism; Structuralism; Revisionism; Holocaust Denial THE HOLOCAUST
Hitler rose to power after the first world, the German government was weak and the people wanting a change. That’s when the Nazi party came into the picture, their values were far different from the current government. Nazi values including; Authoritarianism, Totalitarianism, Economic sovereignty, Traditional values, and Militarism. Although probably their most famous is their value of Racialism, which is the main difference between their style of government and other governments of their time. Nazi’s considered Aryans, those of Nordic heritage, to be the master race.
