World War II
World War II In the early morning hours of September 1, 1939, the German armies marched into Poland. On September 3 the British and French surprised Hitler by declaring war on Germany, but they had no plans for rendering active assistance to the Poles. The Battle of Britain In the summer of 1940, Hitler dominated Europe from the North Cape to the Pyrenees. His one remaining active enemy—Britain, under a new prime minister, Winston Churchill—vowed to continue fighting. Whether it could was quest

Adolf Hitler At 6:30 p.m. on the evening of April 20, 1889, he was born in the small Austrian village of Braunau Am Inn just across the border from German Bavaria. Adolf began to read early in his childhood. He would read about Native Americans and how they were slaughtered, battles between the Germans and Russians and he would read his fathers War books and Hitler became familiar with war and racism at an early age. It was not long before the great historic struggle had become my greatest spi
The Causes of the Holocaust
The Causes of the Holocaust
The Causes of the Holocaust Post World War I Germany saw difficult times. Germans were searching for a reason to blame someone for their problems and extremist groups such as the Nazis provided a focus for the German people. Some historians will argue that extreme nationalism was the cause of the Holocaust because of the power of the Nazi party. While a large part of this is true, Germany's anguish after World War I sent people looking for reasons to blame someone or something for their burdens

Hitler and Stalin: the rise to power During the period leading up to World War II, there were two men who were on opposing sides, yet had many traits that made them much alike. One of these men was someone who’s name is instantly recognizable to almost anyone today--Adolf Hitler. The other man was a major player in world history as well, but his name is not so infamous--Joseph Stalin. These men were each triumphant in their rise to power in their countries and they were very comparable in the w

U.S Foreign Policy Toward Jewish Refugees During 1933-1939 PART I HISTORICAL REVIEW AND ANALYSIS In reviewing the events which gave rise to the U.S.'s foreign policy toward Jewish refugees, we must identify the relevant factors upon which such decisions were made. Factors including the U.S. government's policy mechanisms, it's bureaucracy and public opinion, coupled with the narrow domestic political mindedness of President Roosevelt, lead us to ask; Why was the American government apathetic to

Golding's Reality
Golding's Reality Fiction or fact A recurring theme in William Golding's novel, Lord of the Flies , is that man savage at heart, always ultimately reverting back to evil and a primitive nature. Golding believes that man has no control over his own destiny because of fear. Golding uses properties of setting, characters, and their behavior and the events of the book, Lord of the Flies, to build and support his vision of reality. William Golding was born in Great Britain in 1911 and throughout his

I learned that during the Holocaust, more than six million Jews, and four million non-Jews, were killed by the Nazis. The non-Jews that were killed in the Holocaust were, gypsies, homosexuals, disabled people, ill people, relatives of Jewish people, and people who helped the Jews. There is a saying about the Holocaust that says,

Religious Persecution: An underlying theme in The Lord of the Flies Like many excellent works, William Golding's novel, The Lord of the Flies can be read on many different levels. It is possible to read the book literally, as a mere story about boys marooned on an island. It is also possible to read the book as an indictment of the nature of man - as being pure evil without society's boundaries. A further analysis of The Lord of The Flies reveals something else - the novel has many references t

Inherent inside every human soul is a savage evil side that remains
Inherent inside every human soul is a savage evil side that remains repressed by society. Often this evil side breaks out during times of isolation from our culture, and whenever one culture confronts another. History is loaded with examples of atrocities that have occurred when one culture comes into contact with another. Whenever fundamentally different cultures meet, there is often a fear of contamination and loss of self that leads us to discover more about our true selves, often causing pe

As a result about 12,000,000 people - about half of them Jews - were murdered. The murders were done by every means imaginable but most of the victims perished as a result of shooting, starvation, disease, and poison gas.

Not many remember, or even want to remember what had happened in Europe. “Holocaust” is a Greek word meaning ‘sacrifice by fire.’ The Nazis came into power in Germany in 1933, and believed that the Germans were ‘racially superior’ compared to the Jews. In 1933, the Jewish population was standing a little over 9 million. When ‘the Final Solution’ came, two out of every three Jews were killed. There are more people affected by the holocaust than just

Even in Biblical times, the world blamed the Jews for the death of Jesus Christ. Even now, if someone says that they are Jewish, you always seem to look at them a little different. What events happened to cause Hitler to think that the Jews needed to be sent to ghettos, and what happened inside the ghetto? Between 1527 and 1768, Jews were banned from living in Warsaw, Poland.

An example of one of these societal rules forced upon the individual is the belief that murdering another human being is wrong. We know that this act is wrong because of strict prison sentences that follow such courses of action.

The ghettos were like captive city-states. And so started one of the world’s most disturbing and horrifying periods, the Holocaust. The Holoc

Anti-Semitism Anti-Semitism is the political, social and economic activities directed against Jewish people. The term is now used to denote anti-Judaic acts or sentiments based on any grounds, including religious ones. The word Semitic derives from the decedents of Shem, the oldest son of Noah. Around 1880, the term anti-Semitism was used to denote hostility only towards Jews. This hostility is supposedly justified by a theory developed in Germany in the mid nineteenth century, that people of
