What do you know or think of when you hear the phrase:
Write a five-sentence response and post it on Edmodo. This will be graded.
My fellow students, German men and women, the era of exaggerated Jewish intellectualism is now at an end. The triumph of the German revolution has cleared a path for the German way; and the future German man will not just be a man of books, but also a man of character and it is to this end we want to educate you. To have at an early age the courage to peer directly into the pitiless eyes of life.
To repudiate the fear of death in order to gain again the respect for death. That is the mission of the young and therefore you do well at this late hour to entrust to the flames the intellectual garbage of the past. It is a strong, great and symbolic undertaking, an undertaking, which shall prove to all the world that the intellectual basis of the November Republic is here overturned; but that from its ruins will arise victorious the lord of a new spirit."
Reich Minister of Propaganda
Germany, May 10, 1933

And they started out poor and angry and everybody looked down on them.
Until one man decided to give them some pride, an identity... and somebody to blame.
You take over neighborhoods? That's nothing compared to them.
They took over countries.
And one of the ways they did it was by doing this: see, they print pictures like this in the newspapers, jewish people with big, long noses... blacks with big, fat lips.
They'd also published scientific evidence that proved that jews and blacks were the lowest form of human species; Jews and blacks were more like animals.
And because they were just like animals it didn't matter if they lived or died. In fact, life would be a whole lot better if they were all dead. That's how a holocaust happens.
