Transcript of WW1,WW2 PROJECT

WW I and WW II
Cause of WWI
The cause of WWI in Europe was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand by Serbian Nationalists. This then caused a domino effect of things that eventually led to the start of WWI. The cause in the US was different than in Europe. Originally America had declared neutrality. The attack of American ships and people by Germany provoked the enter of WWI for U.S.
Treaty of Versailles
The treaty was made at the end of WWI to end it.
The treaty stopped the war between Germany and the Allied Powers.
The treaty was signed on June 28, 1919 by Germany, the U.S, the British Empire, France, Italy, and Japan in the Hall of Mirrors in Paris, France.
The treaty was registered by the Secretary of the League of Nations.
The treaty said that Germany had to accept that they caused WWI, lose control of the colonies, and to pay reparations.

WWI Battles
Many of the women worked in factories to make ammunition, guns, tanks, jeeps, and much more equipment for the soldiers.
The women who worked in the factory had to work long hours, but they made a lot of money.
Women also worked in Defense Plants and volunteered for war-related organizations
At the end of the war, many women were forced to leave their jobs because the men returning from the war needed those jobs.
Born April 20,1889.
Became chancellor of Germany in 1933-1945.
Adolf was a dictator from 1934-1945.
His policies were the cause of World War two and the Holocaust.
Hitler applied twice to enter the Vienna Art Academy, but both times he got denied.
Hitler was awarded two Iron Crosses for bravery after surviving 4 years of WWI.
Adolf Hitler's dream was to become an artist, but after he got denied by an art academy he became a ruthless dictator that killed many people in his years.
Adolf Hitler died by committing suicide by a gunshot.
The impact of trench warfare on families was massive because it caused a lot of deaths
Not only did it cause a lot of deaths, but it also affected health of the soldiers in the battlefield.
Trenches were used to protect soldiers from getting killed, but still many died because of the trenches.
A trench was generally from 10 feet deep and 6 feet wide which meant many soldiers were crowded together and there was barely any room for those who were in the battlefield.
The Holocaust began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler came into power of Germany
The Holocaust ended in 1945 when the allied powers defeated the Nazis.
After WWI, the countries that participated in the war started to remember the soldiers that had died. Monuments were created for battles and soldiers. America created Veterans Day. It was a day to remember those who had fought in WWI.
11 million people were estimated to have died because of The Holocaust and 6 million of them were Jews.
The atomic bomb used purified uranium- 235 which was discovered by Albert Einstein.
Uranium was hard to extract at that time.
The United States Government started the "Manhattan Project" in 1939, which was where they researched and tested atomic bombs.
The atomic bomb weighed about 9,000 pounds.
The U.S used the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan because Japan unexpectedly bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
The Holocaust killed two-thirds of Jews in Europe.
The cause of WWII in Europe was Hitler's invasions, that included the invasion of Czechoslovakia and Poland which was September 1st, 1939. The cause in America was the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese on December 7, 1941.
The concentration camp was for the Jewish people that were workers and for them to perish.
After the end of World War Two, the League of Nations was disbanded and the United Nations was created. Veterans day was for all veterans instead of soldiers from WWI. Some of the boundries in Europe, as well as several countries were forced to rebuild. After the end of WWII the United States and Russia were now superpowers in the world.
The Battle of Verdun, 1916
French vs. German
Winner: French
Impact: The Germans used more resources than expected because they thought the battle was going to be short, but it was longer than they expected.
The NATO and Warsaw pacts were created almost as soon as the end of WWII. NATO was created to stop the spread of communism throughout the world, while the Warsaw pact was created to promote communism and the USSR (the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic). After WWII every country was either in NATO or the Warsaw pact. These two organizations started the Cold War.
Pearl Harbor
Washington DC
Pearl Harbor
The Christmas Truce was a battle where British and German soldiers had called a truce for Christmas. On Christmas Eve the soldiers started to sing Christmas carols. When dawn came the soldiers came out of their trenches and started to play football.
The attack took place in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941.
The Japanese and Americans were involved in this battle.
The Japanese won.
It is important because it was a surprise attack from Japan so the american weren't ready for it and it led to the U.S dropping an atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The attack also led the U.S to enter WWII.

The Americans, English, French, and German were involved in this battle.
