Without careful consideration, Canada refused entry to the SS St. Louis passengers as they believed that “[i]f Germany didn’t want them, why should we?” which highlighted Canada’s anti-semitic attitude. The government also enforced biased and xenophobic immigration regulations in order to protect against “stateless persons” which referred only to Jewish refugees. The exodus of Japanese Canadians during World War Two underlined the cruelty of the government as it became the largest mass movement in Canada’s history with a total of 23,000 people either relocated or deported. Still, in spite of the government’s poor treatment of minorities during World War Two, the negative outcomes of their mistakes is what shaped Canada into the welcoming, culturally diverse nation it is

The Canadian mining companies and the Guatemalan government targeted groups of people and individuals that were against the exploitation of land for mining purposes. It is believed that the Canadian mining companies are the children of genocide in Guatemala (lecture).

It was later found that the head of state was responsible for this genocide and when he was on trial in Guatemala they let him free without warning. When the professor heard about all of the terror happening in Guatemala, she wanted to help the suffering population and has worked with the Mayans and the FAFG to report the incidents that occurred during the times of genocide and to help the population of Guatemala.
About 6 million people died from the government-engineered famine. Stalin eliminate the Kulaks because they didn’t support him to show that he did controll Ukraine. In 1937 and 1938 the French ambassador attended the public trials that were a part of the “Great Purges”. He wrote “The lessons they (the accused) recited must have been forced from them...

Already not supporting their occupation, the Bosnians saw his visit on that day as an even greater symbol of their oppression and a small group planned an assassination. When the Archduke visited, he was killed. Austro-Hungary saw this as an act of war and called on their ally Germany to aid them. This alliance prompted Russia to come to aid Bosnia as Russia wanted to uphold the reputation of freer and defender of the Slavic States.
After hearing this, President Woodrow Wilson had told the German government to stop sinking unarmed and neutral ships. For a while Germany had agreed, but soon went back to their previous methods and further turned the U.S. opinion against them. The United States broke diplomatic relations with Germany, and the American ship Housatonic was sunk by a German U-boat hours later. That seemed to be the straw that broke the camel’s back, and the United States started preparing to enter the war. During that time, Germany sank four more American ships.
In December of 1905 General Count Alfred von Schlieffen created a plan to attack France after Russia had declared their mobilization in response to the global tension. Due to the execution of the plan Great Britain declared war on Germany on August 4th, 1914.

Hitler was raised in a humble family and quickly rose to power by targeting things that people in Germany, at that time, had disapproved of, such as the Treaty of Versailles. This treaty was created as a result of the first world war and forced Germany to give up land and give reparations for damages caused by the war even though Germany had not caused the war. Instead, the assassination of an archduke of Austria by a Bosnian Serb caused the world war. As many people expected, the German people were infuriated by this injustice.
