The Holocaust means a lot to many people today, and to an equal number
of people very little. It shows we are still a young civilization in knowledge
for the way we treat each other, whether it be for race or religion.
To some of us in society who are Jewish the Holocaust means the death of
many of our people. It stands out as the most current opposing action against a
religion, and to memory the worst to anyone. And from this comes the most
notable phrase from the Jews, "never again." Meaning that they will never let
themselves as a religion be tortured, and enslaved again, at least not if they
can help it.
To many of us non Jews, whether it be Christian or Muslim or whatever, I
think it is taken in a much more broader light. We see that the total
destruction of a religion was at hand, but also see that it is not the first to
come so close. But rather the most current. It is a simple and bold reminder
that some people are just not very smart, and for that same reason we must look
out for all to be at peace with all.
To the few people who deny the occurance of the Holocaust and rather
call it the Hocsacaust. The Holocaust just means exactly what is in the
dictionary, "great or total destruction especially by fire." And by no means is
the genocide of European Jews, and other groups by the Nazi Germany during WWII.
To me the Holocaust means the most current gigantic thing to happen to a
group of people. In my opinion, not the last either. To those of you who say
that there is no way this is going to happen again, I laugh at you. It is a
fact that there is a religous war going on right now in the middle east, and has
been going on for as long as people can remember. For those who say that what
is going on in the middle east is not a genocide, I\'ll just say that you are
right so far but I would call a nuclear bomb which is the hottest thing on the
black market since the USSR fell a genocide tool. And finally for those who say
that it won\'t happen to the Jews, the countries who are buying the nuclear
weapons consist of mostly muslim populations who have an oath to anialate the
Jews and take back there homeland (what they consider homeland is what almost
every religion does) Isreal.
The Holocaust has many meanings today, but the meaning could be
different tomorrow. Because we never know when a "sweet talker" like Hitler can
talk ignorent people into killing their freinds.

Yom KippurYom Kippur Yom Kippur is the most important holidays for the Jewish. It is a time for people to seek forgiveness from others. Yom Kippur is important because it comes just before the Jewish new year so that people can have a fresh start for the new year. Yom Kippur also gives people a chance to look back on the past year and plan for the upcoming year. Yom Kippur dates back to biblical times when animals were used to transfer sins to. The first animal that was used was a goat, but soon roosters
AnthrolopoloyAnthrolopoloy BOOK REVIEW Scientific racism claims that biological inheritance determines the character and behavior of social groups we identify as races. Despite its history of oppression and genocide, the scientific defense of racial inequality demonstrates a disturbing persistence. Murphy Ballenís study of scientific racism in Great Britain and the United States in the 1920s and 1930s appropriately deals not with its demise but with its retreat.

The Causes of the HolocaustThe 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
