Eóin Lyness J3A The Jewish Holocaust What is anti-Semitism? Other countries where
anti-Semitism existed To What Extent Did the International Community and Ordinary Germans Choose to Ignore What Was Happening? Anti-Semitism is the hatred of, or discrimination against Jewish people just because they are Jewish. Historical reasons for anti-Semitism The term "anti-Semitism" was coined in the late 19th Century in Germany as a more scientific term for "Judenhass" (Jew hatred) Anti-Semitism existed in many other countries around the world, including: After World War II, the international community was horrified to discover the true scale of what had happened to the Jews. So In 1947, the United Nations, decided that the Jewish people should be given their own homeland. A person who holds views like these is known as an "anti-Semite" Anti-Semitism may be expressed in many ways which range from discrimination against individual Jews to violent attacks against entire communities. Anti-Semitism may also include prejudice or stereotyped views against Jewish people. The term did not come into common usage until the 19th Century, but it is now also applied to historic anti-Jewish incidents. •Algeria

During the Holocaust approximately 6 million Jews were murdered. The 20th Century has been recognized as the century of nationalism and genocide.

Recent ethnic cleansings have been occuring, for example, since 2003 in Darfur in the War between rebel groups and Sudanese military forces.

In the former Yugoslavia a variety of groups have fallen victim to organized campaigns of ethnic cleansing.

Both historically and in the present day, there are countless examples of genocide and ethnic cleansing around the world. Modern Day Ethnic Cleansing and Genocide Because the persecution and execution of Jews was happening far away from ordinary Germans, very few people realised what was happening to the Jews. The Nazis made it sound like the Jews would just be living far away from the Germans. While the Allies were at war with Nazi Germany, they did little, if anything to either stop the on-going slaughter of millions of Jews or to save refugees. The International Committee of the Red Cross did relatively little to save Jews during the Holocaust and discounted reports of the organized Nazi genocide. The Holocaust in Media There have been numerous media examples of the events of the Holocaust including movies like "Schindler's List" and "The Boy in the Stripped Pyjamas" which is both a book written by John Boyne and a movie.

Other books include "The Diary of Anne Frank" a real diary in which a Jewish girl named Anne Frank wrote in about her life during the Holocaust and "Hitler's Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust" by David Irving. All of these media examples provide perspectives and interpretations of the Jewish Holocaust. Thanks For Watching
