Transcript of The Sneetches Discrimination/Holocaust Timeline
The Sneetches Discrimination Timeline Discrimination treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category (in this case religion, race, or sexuality) to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit. The Holocaust Time Period The time period in which the holocaust happened and its additional events lasted all the way from 1933 to 1945 The holocaust started January 30th Of 1933. The cause of this was when Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany. The holocaust then ended May 8th 1945. The end occurred when the war in Europe officially ended and the German Troops surrendered. The Connection Of the Holocaust and Discrimination Throughout history different religions have fought against one another, competing for both power and popularity. As seen in the past, conflicts such as religious discrimination have always resulted negatively, creating tension between nations and causing wars. Hitler, a powerful dictator, was obsessed with clearing Germany of all its foreign races and wanted the country to house only its own citizens. Hitler believed that as a pure nation, there would be fewer internal struggles, and Germany would be able to gain world domination. Hitler gave pure German citizens the title "Aryans" and classified them as having white skin and blue eyes. He also managed to convince the Aryans that since they were at the top of the social hierarchy, the Jews (who were at the bottom of the hierarchy), were conspiring against Germany and were stopping them from rightfully ruling the world. The Holocaust is a strong connection to discrimination because the war was caused because people were different, and others believed they were a higher class than them because of that.
