Treaty of Versailles
Treaty of Versailles
Treaty of Versailles The end of World War I was finalized by the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919. It was signed by Great Britain, France, Italy, and Japan but not the United States, as the U.S. drafted its own treaty with Germany in 1921. Many historians argue that the Treaty of Versailles was the major cause of World War II which occurred twenty years later. On the Treaty�s most superficial level, the extreme punishment and fines that were levied by the Allied Powers on t

Causes of world war 2 Out of all the wars that the world has gone through, none has been more devastating as world war II. But what caused this war? Well, world war II had six major causes: anger over the Versailles Treaty, the failure of peace efforts after world war I, the rise of Fascism, the goals of Hitler, the isolationism by America and Britain, and the re-armament of Europe.

A Timeline of the Holocaust The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic annihilation of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and their collaborators as a central act of state during World War II. In 1933 approximately nine million Jews lived in the 21 countries of Europe that would be occupied by Germany during the war. By 1945 two out of every three European Jews had been killed.

How The Treaty Of Versailles Effected Germany Wen World War I ended on November 11, 1918, peace talks went on for months due to the Allied leaders wanting to punish the enemy and “dividing the spoils of war.” A formal agreement to end the war was made and called the Treaty of Versailles. The issue that took the most time were the territorial issues because the empires of Russia, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman, and Germany had collapsed.

Adam's Paper
Adam\'s Paper Fuel…. Flame…. Fire…. Inferno…. Ash…. Historically, the word holocaust meant a religious rite in which an offering was completely consumed by fire. In current times the word holocaust has changed to a darker more tragic meaning and refers to more than a religious sacrifice. During World War II, a fire raged throughout Eastern Europe. Guns, bombs, and military groups did not ignite this fire. This fire burned intensely in the hearts of men -- sparked by centuries-old prejudice. One

Roots of AntiSemitism After learning about the Holocaust, Ive asked myself many times how this could have happened. Why would anyone believe its acceptable to massacre an entire people? This is my reasoning for writing my paper on how Christian theology influenced anti-Semitism. Much of the Holocaust appears to have its beginning with Christian theology. I will begin my paper with the early writings of Christians and continue chronologically until after World War II. The Apostle Paul was one

But many among the middle class admired the Nazis\' muscular opposition to the Social Democrats.

Nazi Germany
Nazi Germany
Nazi Germany After World War I, or The Great War as it was known back then, Germany was left devastated both financially and, since German propaganda had not prepared the nation for defeat, emotionally, resulting in a sense of injured German national pride. But because Germany was “stabbed in the back” by its leftwing politicians, Communists, and Jews, or more colourfully known as the ‘November Criminals’, it was still widely believed that Germany had not truly been defeated. When a new governme

Human Rights Violations Throughout the history of humankind, man has always been hateful and prejudice towards a race or religion different from his or her own. In the early twentieth century itself, we faced atrocities such as the Armenian Massacre, the rape of Nanking and many more. One such crime against the human race that can overthrow all of them is, the Nazi Holocaust led by Adolf Hitler. After World War I, Germany was in a condition of total chaos.

Ideas Have Consequences
Ideas Have Consequences Ideas have consequences. This is a statement that can be proven, whatever time period you look at. As far back in time as history books go, great people and nations have had seemingly great ideas, which when implemented, resulted in mass disaster. Take for example the ancient Aztec Indians. They believed that the sun was actually a living being, and that for it to sustain its light and heat source, it had to ingest human blood. Well, the only way for the sun to eat human

The Red Badge There was a real evil that stalked Salem in 1692. However, it had nothing to do with Witchcraft or Satan. The evil that stalked Salem in 1692 was a characteristic that existed in the the past. It is also a characteristic of the present and will probably exist in the future. This evil characteristic in society is power. Many leaders, as well as everyday people crave power. Miller wrote this play in the 1950\'s when communism was a major threat to many Americans as well as much of th

The Treaty of Versailles One of the greatest conflicts in the history of the world, that of World War II, changed the course of events in Western societies for the rest of the 20th Century. Its effects are felt today even today with the final ascent of the United States as a superpower and the decline of Europe. In fact, World War II was the final judgment concerning European domination of the world. However, many have said that World War II was a continuation of World War I, a war which destroy

To Kill A Mocking Bird In my opinion theme with the most impact in \'To Kill a Mockingbird" is Hypocrisy as shown in three main incidents . These are the teachings of Ms Gates about the atrocities of Adolf Hitler whilst she hated blacks ; the missionary circle trying to show how Christian they are while believing that to be a brother of Christ you must be white and finally the hypocrisy of the American court system in the 30\'s by saying they stand for justice.

Utilitarianism When faced with a moral dilemma, utilitarianism identifies the appropriate considerations, but offers no realistic way to gather the necessary information to make the required calculations. This lack of information is a problem both in evaluating the welfare issues and inevaluating the consequentialist issues which utilitarianism requires be weighed when making moral decisions. Utilitarianism attempts to solve both of these difficulties by appealing to experience; however, no meth

“To Believe, To Obey, To Combat” -Mussolini Today, for those of us living in a liberal democracy, fascism seems to be an absurd, repulsive and maybe even grotesque form of governmental leadership. Communism had its beginnings in the spirit of the American and French revolutions, with their emphasis on individual liberty and equaling, fascism rejected these 19th-century ideas. Instead it extolled the state as absolute and demanded discipline, devotion to duty, and the subordination of all individ

The purges, in effect, started on December 1, 1934 with the murder of Sergei Kirov, a Leningrad party leader. This act, in fact, helped shut ‘Russia’s window to the West.’ These great purges brought on ugly results and severely menaced the Soviet Unions power and future. The purges were designed to expunge any threats of political resistance. ‘An important aspect of all Soviet Purges has been elimination
