Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini As the twentieth century comes to a close, the world can now look back on a century filled with war, technology, revolution, and growth. When looking back upon the most powerful leaders that shaped past century, it can’t be assumed that all of them had good intentions in mind. In fact, it is these leaders, the ones who set forth goals of destruction and massacre, that have affected the past hundred years the most drastically. The two men who fully represented th

Racism in Flags
Racism in Flags Racism can be represented in many forms. Flags are on of them. Flags can be used to represent something. Many flags mean different things such as freedom, democracy and respect for something such as a country. However, some flags can been seen as something bad or something that they disprove of, but to another person it can be something they believe in. What I am talking about is racism and how it can be shown in flags. The Confederate flag is a very controversial flag. Some peop

It seems that the maturing of the two superpowers, Russia and the United States, can be traced to World War II. To be a superpower, a nation needs to have a strong economy, an overpowering military, immense international political power and, related to this, a strong national ideology. It was this war,

While it was the Nazis who actually performed the action, men and women everywhere believed in the separation of races, whether white, black, Aryan, or Jew. Racism was a big part of late

Daddy Daddy is a poignant story of one woman’s struggle to finally end her life-long guilt over her father’s death. Sylvia Plath was the daughter of a domineering and abusive father, who passed away when she was ten years old. This was an extremely difficult incident for Plath to deal with. She was unable to put closure to his death, and even tried to reunite herself with him through a faulty suicide attempt at age twenty. Her father is appropriately compared to a Nazi using intense imagery. The

Therefore, the Nazis arrested without legal basis real or potential political opponents and people for racial, religious and other reasons.

The Holocaust
The Holocaust By: George Manalo When World War II began in September 1939, the German army occupied the western half of Poland and thereby added almost 2 million Jews to the German power sphere. Restrictions placed on Polish Jewry were much harsher than those in Germany. The Polish Jews were forced to move into ghettos surrounded by walls and barbed wire. The ghettos were like captive city-states. And so started one of the world’s most disturbing and horrifying periods, the Holocaust. The Holoca

Anti-Semitism and Nazi Hatred
Anti-Semitism and Nazi Hatred Many people think that hatred towards the Jews began with Hitler. That\'s simple not true. Anti-Semitism began in ancient times because of the oddity of the Jewish religion. The Jews worshipped one invisible deity while most other religions worshipped a group of man-like Gods with special powers. (Patterson, pg. 3) Their neighbors in this way gradually alienated the Jews. Even other Christ-worshipping religions became anti-Semitic. Martin Luther said that Christia

Previous to the war people generally believed that man was essentially good-hearted and society often was evil. However, the atrocities of the war made it impossible for many people to believe any longer in man\'s basic innocence. This change in thinking is obvious in William Golding’s Lord Of The Flies.

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.
