All students are required to respond to other student posts each week The goal here is to ENGAGE in respectful dialogue – be supportive of each other, even as you are critical of each other’s ideas.
One thing I took away from reading this textbook is the following; How they created their own council and forms of society within the ghetto’s and how the Hungarian police were involved- this is something I personally didn’t know occurred during this tragedy.
The second takeaway from the reading is the following: I was shocked at how much this this group trusted police, especially Hungarian police when it came to the “relocation” movement that occurred according to the first chapter of the first textbook. In my opinion I would have wanted answers to be the relation was forming the ghetto’s. Even if I thought that it was because it would make me safer from the war that was occurring at the time.
The third takeaway from the reading is the following: Reading this week’s pages that I choice to read I can believe that there was never ant news that this ethic group could have gotten before this horrible tardiest took place. To try and warn them no to trust anyone that seems that they could be out to cause harm or being too friendly.
If someone could have warrened this ethic group and the world about what was occurring could this whole situation have been stopped sooner or even prevent before it had even started? Was there ever worry that something like this horrible event was about to occur before it happened?
1) In a single sentence IN YOUR OWN WORDS (IYOW), provide an OVERVIEW of this section.
This section traces the evolution of anti-Semitism from the crusades, the rest of the middle ages, the enlightenment, the revolutions of the French and Americans, World War I, and the thoughts and words of Hitler and the German laws.
2) For each chapter (1-4), provide a THESIS sentence and THREE specific pieces of evidence to support your thesis – what is each writer’s MAIN argument, and how does each writer support said argument? (Use 2-3 sentences for EACH and feel free to number them.)
The book has been delayed in shipping but I was able to find the readings:
3) Select ONE of the documents that you find MOST illuminating, and explain WHY in 4-5 sentences.
The document I find most illuminating was Robert S. Wistrich’s work. It seems to be that among many that what encouraged the rise of the Nazis was PRIMARILY anti-Semitism. He shows that this might not be the case and that even Hitler himself realized that this could not appeal to all the people. Anti-Semitism was, of course, very popular, but also nationalism and anti-Communism, though the three coincided with one another often.
What I find the most troubling, to me at least (though I think at the larger scale, there are more troubling things such as Hitler’s racial anti-Semitism and views on race-mixing), Hitler’s view on Jesus Christ. He says, “Of course, [Christ] made no secret of his attitude toward the Jewish people, and when necessary he even took to the whip to drive from the temple of the Lord this adversary of all humanity, who then as always saw in religion nothing but an instrument for his business existence. In return, Christ was nailed to the cross, while our present-day party Christians debase themselves to begging for Jewish votes at elections and later try to arrange political swindles with atheistic Jewish parties-and this against their own nation,” (Hitler, Mein Kampf). I, myself, believe he does not get the proper context of many of the passages he is appealing to and forgets that many early Christians–and Christ himself–were also Jewish. It is not entirely his fault for thinking this of Christ, because many Protestants (such as Martin Luther), Catholics (especially the Catholics of the middle ages), and the Church Fathers (as Bernard Lewis points out for example St. Augustine and St. John Chrysostom on page 34) often would falsely blame the entirety of the Jews for the death of Christ and forsake the Jewish roots–from the apostles to the scriptures–of Christianity at the risk of “Judaizing,” (Gigliotti and Land, 12).
My question for the class is of what examples do we have today of groups proposing that race-mixing leads to the decline of a nation/culture/people?
