  • Jews And Other People

    'Tell Me Everything " One of the toughest questions we are asked at the Holocaust History Project is when someone says 'tell me everything you can about the Holocaust.

There is so much information about the Holocaust that it is impossible to describe it all in a simple answer. We can, however, tell you what the Holocaust was and - most importantly - where...

  • Causes Of Anti Semitism Anti Semitism
    956 words
    What are the causes of anti semitism Anti semitism is the term to mean the hatred of Jews, which was first coined by Wilhelm Marr, a German novelist who produced an anti-Jewish pamphlet in 1879. It was primarily used for those who did not like Jewish people, but in fact, anti semitism is the hatred of those who speak Semitic languages such as Jewish or Arabic. It is a most misleading term because not all Semites are Jewish and Semites include people from Arabic and other backgrounds. Anti semiti...

  • Of The Police Battalion 101
    1,848 words
    Society's Influence on Morals The atrocities of the Holocaust have prompted much inquiry by researchers to understand how humans can behave so cruelly toward their fellowman. Theories have been formed that cite the men of Battalion 101 as "exceptions" or men with "faulty personalities", when, in fact, they were ordinary men. The people who attempted to perform a genocide were the same people as you and me with the only difference being the environment in which they worked. The behavior of the me...

I will begin my paper with the early writings of Christians and continue chronologically until after World War II. The Apostle Paul was one the first people to cr...
