During Kristallnacht (“The night of the broken glass”), 8,000 Jewish businesses were destroyed, 30,000 Jews taken to concentration camps. Almost 2,000 through 2,500 deaths were caused by the terrible events of that horrible night. This tragedy was not only the SS and SA carrying out this persecution but it was met with involvement of many German citizens. German citizens aren’t as innocent as history makes them. Now there were some Germans who opposed to the Holocaust, that were afraid to speak out because Hitler was so powerful at the time.
It 's really surprising what the form one person can do to multi-million people and a whole community. This event has really changed many lives. The world 's population could have been twice the number if the Holocaust and WW2 did not happen. This event could have been dodged if people weren 't blind sighted by Hitler 's lies and If Hitler didn 't spread propaganda. Many Jews and others have been killed in this horrible
In January of 1957 many bombings outbroke around the town. There were also many riots that were formed by whites. The city of Montgomery was in total chaos. As a result of all the bombings, a total of seven people were arrested; all people involved with the bombings were members of the Ku Klux Klan.
The Holocaust provided lessons to us on religious persecution. We now know it is wrong to discriminate against someone on their religion, and that it should not matter what religion a person is. Here are a couple religious groups that have been persecuted throughout history. Two examples are the Roma Gypsies and Jehovah’s Witnesses (Christians). The Gypsies, most like the Jews, were moved by Nazis to unusual areas, and almost the entire race of Gypsies in Eastern Europe was wiped out.
Religion is a strong persuader to almost anything and it can be transcended into helping or hurting others. For many hate groups, religion is a strong enough motivation to hate and even kill others. It’s not okay for Jewish and0 Muslim people to live in panic in a country like the United States where you have the freedom. If hate crimes don’t diminish or decline the results can only increase and endure to oppress minorities like Jews and Muslims for many generations to come. Societies with those views of oppression will only continue to pass that hate to their
Hitler, the Nazi leader, believed that Germans were “racially superior” and the Jews were “inferior”, therefore they should be eliminated. Does this not happen today? Stereotypes, racism, prejudice and discrimination keep us from evolving and living at peace with each other. We see discrimination and racism happen everyday in our lives.
We all know that Jewish people were the main targets in the Holocaust, but not many people know that other groups and races. Some groups that were killed are but not limited to: disabled people, LGBTQIA+ people, Roma Gypsies, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Polish People and people of African descent. While Jewish people should be recognized for their struggles, so should every other group. Disabled People Hitler didn’t want to have any disabled people in Nazi Germany. He thought that they were too much work and overall useless to society.
Anti-Semitism is defined as a racial term meaning the negative belief and emotions about “Jews qua Jews” (Newman, 2010, p. 15). Anti-Semitism dates back to 70.C.E where the ancient rebellious Hebrews “exhausted the patience of their Roman masters”, lost their homes and were spread through the Mediterranean lands (Botwinick, 2014, p. 4). Jews were always outcasts to Christians because the Jews denied that Jesus was the “messianic son of God” which therefore added more tension when it was believed that Jews killed Jesus (Botwinick, 2014, p. 5). The Holocaust also known as the “Catastrophe, the Sho’ah, is one of the tragic periods of “Jewish Diaspora” (Keter Books, 1974, p. 1) It started between 1933 and 1945 in Europe.
There were many who collaborated and murdered Jews, yet there were even more who kept silent and did nothing to stop this from happening. There were Nazis at the time who laughed at their victims, saying: If you try to tell people about this afterwards, no one will believe you! (Today, if you look on the internet, you will encounter hundreds of evil sites dedicated to anti-Semitism and denying that the Holocaust, a historical fact, took place.) So, the role of witnesses like Elie Wiesel is to fight the amoral indifference in this world, to remind us that he saw how the "cultured" Europeans degraded and murdered so many innocent individual human beings.
The propaganda was often very harsh and violent towards Jewish people. A lot of the propaganda that everyone saw was fake. Nazis would often cover up a fake broadcast and cancel out all other radio stations so that the German citizens would not here all of the other
The holocaust caused a lot of trauma, for many people and races, and is still affecting people and their families today. With all the terrible burning, freezing, injections, and surgeries, it 's hard to realize that things like that actually happened. To today’s standards, all of the things that they did during World War II would be considered illegal in most countries. Especially under most cruel and unusual laws, if any of this were to happen in the United
The Holocaust was a dark and grievous time for millions throughout the world. It not only left lasting physical effects, but mental, and societal. It was during this era that many were forced to make a decision on whether to be bystanders, or to risk their own well-being for the benefit of those threatened. Though many turned their backs on the persecuted, there were several attempted resistance efforts. Secret groups were established all throughout Europe and several individuals were noted for illegally obtaining passports and ration cards.
Great numbers of Jews abandoned Iran immediately after for they feared execution and expulsion as in the 1800’s. Since the revolution the Jewish community of Iran has been facing more discrimination than ever before. They are looked upon dishonestly and with hostility at all times. Present-day Iranian Jews are disrespected at their employment, education and in public, they are accused for crimes, they did not commit and some have also been murdered for religious reasons. The Jewish population of Iran today, exists of 10200 Jews.
For example, police brutality, The events are all over media and the news and has been around since back in the early 60’s. Police brutality is very common now and frankly we the people know when an incident of police brutality is a hate crime or if the person actually did something to deserve the false attacks. “Throughout world history, governments have violated and ignored the human and civil rights of their citizens” (Lugo). The cases of police brutality have made a major negative impact on America and have caused widespread effects on society such as riots. These riots are the outcome of the incidents which have greatly taken a toll on today’s society.
The proceedings of the Seneca Falls Convention, had brought forth many torrents of ridicule and sarcasm from the press and pulpit. All the ridicule made Stanton discomforted about the widespread misinterpretation of the convention, but she understood the value of the attention in the press. She exclaimed that this “is what I wanted” (Seneca Falls). James Gordon Bennett was motivated by derision, and had eventually printed the entire Declaration of Sentiments in the New York Herald (Seneca Falls).
