- A Short History Of Antisemitism In Germany - 779 words
A Short History of Anti-Semitism in Germany A Short History of Anti-Semitism in Germany The Second World War has left an unmistakable impression on the whole of Europe that will never be forgotten. Whether visible to the naked eye, or hidden in the consciousness of its people, the war has scarred Europe indelibly. Historically, the foremost recognizable perpetration against Europeans was Adolf Hitlers "Final Solution to the Jewish question". This sophisticated operation of systematic mass execution was calculated, organized, and carried out with such horrifying efficiency that only a madman could have been responsible for such an act, and Hitler was indeed mad. However, Anti-Semitism had bee ...

- Antisemitism In Nazi Germany - 1,500 words
Anti-Semitism in Nazi Germany Anti-Semitism in Nazi Germany Discuss the purpose anti-Semitism served for the Nazis. What form did it take once they were in power? The anti-Semitic philosophy of the Nazi party played a significant role in their rise to power during the 1930's. Economic and political conditions in Germany between 1918 and 1933 played a major role in the creation of a climate that made Nazism appeal to the German population. There was widespread unemployment and economic misery and following the trend of German history since the end of the 18th century, the German people turned towards nationalism. The Nazi party captured the nationalistic fervor of the country. The "spirituali ...

- Antisemitism In The United States - 392 words
Anti-Semitism in the United States 'The more things change, the more they stay the same'. This clich has been used millions of times and never has it been more fitting than in this situation. The Holocaust was supposed to be a wake up call for the world, to let all nations know that racism and hatred must be abolished or at least contained in order for peace to exist. It seems that in this country, a nation founded on the principles of equality and freedom, the lessons of the Holocaust are being ignored. If you were to search the Internet and type in the phrase 'white supremacy' or 'Nazi', without a doubt you would find hundreds of organizations throughout the United States who still preach ...

- Antisemitism Influence - 2,144 words
Anti-Semitism Influence The word rests in a conversation like a foul stench and with it comes unbidden images and accusations. Today in many circles this word alone is possibly the most horrendous name to place on a person. Maybe though, not because of what it means, but because of what it brings to mind. Automatically and unwanted, pictures come to our mind of goose stepping Nazis and concentration camps, bodies piled high and what we think of as the air fills with the scent of burning flesh. Our worst nightmares and human kinds worst behaviors. Yet, many of us do not know where the term came from or even what it means beyond their simple ideas. Even dictionaries only give the blandest desc ...

... od alone operating from within, and not of man working-or rather playing-from without. If these offences be taken away, worse will follow. For they are thus given over by the wrath of God to reprobation, that they may become incorrigible, as Ecclesiastes says, for every one who is incorrigible is rendered worse rather than better by correction. Farewell in the Lord; pardon my words, and pray the Lord for my sinning soul." "Martin Luther's to George Spalatin," from Luthers Correspondence and Other Contemporary, Letters, trans. by P.

- Christian Antisemitism - 1,362 words
Christian Anti-Semitism For sixteen hundred years, the Jewish people have been persecuted and murdered by people who worship a Jewish man as their savior: the Christians. Why did Christian anti-Semitism, a seemingly illogical belief given that Jesus himself was a Jew, develop? How did it evolve, and why has it persisted for centuries? In the Biblical gospels, despite three of the four being ostensibly written by Jews, enemies of Jesus are referred to as "the Jews." Early Christians found themselves in a quandary. The savior they worship, himself a Jew, purportedly was killed by Jews. Since at least the fourth century, some groups of Christians have actively practiced anti-Semitism, taking re ...

... hern France; he wrote that Jews are "more perfidious and faithless than demons." (20) Persecution of Jews continued right into the Reformation and became more vicious. Identification of Jews with Satan became increasingly explicit. Erasmus (1466-1536), the Dutch philosopher and theologian, wrote, "If it is the part of a good Christian to detest the Jews, then we are all good Christians." (21) Lest one should place all this anti-Semitism at the door of the Catholic Church, no less a Protestant hero than Martin Luther denounced Jews as children of the devil. In 1542 Luther published Against the Jews and Their Lies, a 200-page rant which includes the following: Know, O adored Christ, and ma ...

... ropean influences on American life and policy (Amazon). He is a precocious reader and brilliant student of the Jewish scriptures. The accidental aspect of certain things is heavily underscored (Huapt 232). In the Beginning, Potok's altered ego, the brilliant young yeshiva student David Lurie, undertakes to bridge the gulf between fundamentalism and secular humanism, including ugly aspects of Western anti-Semitism, even at the risk of losing the respect of his family, his friends, and all of his teachers but one (Buning). Moreover, this quest for identity and authenticity has been dramatically accentuated in our century by World War II and in particular by the Holocaust and the dropping o ...

- The Merchant Of Venice Antisemitism - 580 words
The Merchant of Venice - Anti-Semitism William Shakespeares The Merchant of Venice contains many examples that insult Jews because they were the minority in London in Shakespeares time. Although many parts of the play could be interpreted as offensive in modern times, Elizabethan audiences found them comical. The majority of Londons population at the time was anti-Semitic because there were very few Jews living there. Shakespeares The Merchant of Venice supports anti-Semitism actions and thoughts and therefore proves that Shakespeare was an anti-Semite. In the second act, Launcelot is debating with himself whether or not he should seek a new employer. Launcelots problem is that he works for ...

- The Causes Of The Holocaust - 1,079 words
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, Germany's humiliation after World War I, its dire economic situation, and antisemitism all came together to cause the Holocaust. Germany's embarrassment after losing World War I was one of the major ...
