These survivors and their families had suffered the aftermaths for many later decades after the end of World War ll and death of Hitler. The army and politicians crush them and exploited them for many decades after seizing the genocide and occupation in 1945.

He was very troubled throughout his life, and some experts believe this is a direct result of living in a broken home. In conclusion, Joseph Stalin 's Great Purges was one of the greatest genocides to ever occur in history. Joseph Stalin killed millions of people, mainly because they disagreed with his ideas for the Soviet Union. After examining Stalin 's purges, it was clear that the Great Terror had a major political impact, affected the lives of millions and the background of his upbringing was crucial in the study of this genocide. People should learn from this terrible event, so it never happens again because our world could not overcome something so horrific ever
The circumstances that led up to the Holocaust was the Treaty of Versailles after the Germans lost in WW1. Germany was blamed for the war and were subject to pay very heavy reparations; the cause of these heavy reparations put Germany in a very bad state economically. Due to all of this, Hitler preached that the Jews were to blame and he promised to fix Germany during his political race for leader of Germany. An unmotivated Germany believed Hitler and did everything to elect him because of his very convincing speeches to make Germany a vast and dominating empire once again. The Jews lived very hard lives after the election of Hitler; they were subject to very harsh ways of life and it started out with the release of the Nuremberg Laws.
Hitler had dozens of camps in Germany, the biggest one was Auschwits, where millions of people have died. The Nazi wanted more power, they were very aggressive and invaded many countries. Elie Wiesel, the author the autobiography Night shares what it was like and what he had to go through during the Holocaust. One important part of Night is Elie's relationship with his father. In the book, Elie feels close to his father, but after time they start to fall apart.
People that were involved in the Holocaust were Nazis, Jews, other religions, and politicians (Steele 6-7). Some big Nazi’s included in the Holocaust were Adolf Hitler, Storm troops, SA, SS, Reinhard Heydrich (Lace 63,66), the SS chief leader Heinrich Himmler, and Auschwitz camp commander Rudolf Hoss (first concentration camps). Big Countries that were involved in the Holocaust were Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Poland (Altman 11). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors. The Jews were forced to move to the ghettos because the Nazis wanted to limit the Jews freedom (Blohm 10-11).
The First World War was fought between the Central Powers (Germany, the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, the Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria) and the Allied Powers (Great Britain, France, Russia and Italy). The aim of the war was to set the world back in order and to prevent war in future It was a standout amongst the most dangerous wars in present day history. About ten million soldiers died of the conflict as a result of hostilities. The huge losses on all sides of the contention brought about to part from the presentation of new weapons, similar to the automatic rifle and gas warfare, and the disappointment of military pioneers to modify their strategies to the undeniably mechanised nature of fighting. A strategy of attrition, especially on the Western Front, cost the lives of a huge number of soldiers.
GE1401 Argumentative essay Title: Fundamental cause of World War Two: The Versailles Peace Settlement Name: Chan Hau Yan, Erica SID: 55219930 Instructor: Mr. John Mc Colgan Chan Hau Yan, Erica 55219930 Fundamental cause of World War Two: The Versailles Peace Settlement The Second World War, a global war which lasted for 6-year, it brought massive destruction and casualties to the world. Although it was already decades ago, its damages: hatred between ethnic groups, issue of comfort woman, physical, psychological and environmental damage still remain nowadays. Obviously, Hitler was key person in starting the war, he actively invaded European states and declared war. Nevertheless, Hitler could not rise to power so expeditiously without the favorable condition provided by the Versailles Peace Settlement, which should be regarded as the fundamental cause of World Was Two. Firstly, the Versailles treaty helped the rise of Nazism, hence sowed the seed for Germany to take revenge by starting a world war.
In the past, there were many bad and good incidences that have happened in our world, but there is one event that’s considered as one of the most heartbreaking incidences. I believe that everybody must have heard about the holocaust. The holocaust was an event during World War ll. It began with discrimination in Jews. Many jews were murdered during the holocaust, ordered by Adolf Hitler from Nazi party who wanted to murder the entire Jewish population in Europe.
The Holocaust Before the Holocaust, Europe had about 9.5 million Jews. Marc states, "About six million Jews were murdered" In the year 1933, Adolf Hitler, became the leader of Germany, He believed that the Germans were racially superior convinced Germany to declare WWII all over Europe and controlled most of the countries in Europe. Although Hitler had Country's occupied by Nazi Germans, the Country, why was the holocaust one of the tragic events that has happened in history? It was the mass murdered and destruction of Jews. Till this day people are in shock that so many lives were shattered during a time-period.
Another main event is Kristallnacht, or also known as “The Night of the Broken Glass.” This night was one of fear for Marion as she writes, “The human toll was the largest to date. Ninety-one Jews were known to have died in the street violence alone, and more than thirty thousand Jewish men were taken away to concentration camps.” (Perl/Lazen, 30) The night named due to the fires that were set in Jewish synagogues, and the amount of broken glass that lay around the town.
