Transcript of Genocide
World War II
World War II is one of history's most terrifying events. It began in 1933 when Hitler and the Nazi party took control of Germany and invaded Poland. World War II began on September 1, 1939, when Germany invaded Poland, and 17 days later occupied half of eastern Poland. The Polish Jews were forced to live in a place where they would starve and catch diseases.The war involved 30 countries and about 85 million were dead. Hitler executed all jews and sent them to concentration camps. Some people never saw their families again , and were killed. This war ended in 1945. The word Genocide got its name became used after World War II.
Since World War II many people have been trying to prevent Genocide but some regions still continue to kill citizens. Genocide is still going on in Burma, human rights in Burma are know as the worst in the world. President Obama actually wrote about this in his White House blog , he said that " Serious human rights against civilians in several regions continue, including against woman and children." Political power in Burma is being abused and women and children, citizens and large groups of people are being killed, because of their religion or race. Forced labor, human trafficking and child labor are also common in Burma today.
What can I do to help?
As a Catholic I believe that human life is sacred and that every human being is worth something. No one has the right to take away another human beings life just because of their of their race or religion. I can speak out and protest against this social injustice and try to make a difference. I can also pray for the people that are being effected by this because prayer is the best way of helping these people.
