The 8th of May 1945 is an important date.Not only that is the day when the Second World War ended, but also it is the day in which Europe was divided in two zones.What determined this division was the communist doctrine.The US and the USSR were the two big nations, which 'saved' the world from the catastrophe of Nazism; also, they were the only countries, which were still 'active' after the world ended. This is why the two of them were elected as 'patrons' of the new Europe.Britain was as well the winner of the war, being in alliance with both America and Russia, however its loyalty to the US led to its subordination.Soon after the end of the 'total war' then, Europe was split into 2 areas

HIEU 128 - Europe since 1948
Prompt: Based on your reading of Heda Margolius Kovlys autobiography, how would you explain the initial appeal of Communism to many people in Eastern Europe after 1945?

Great Britain, the Soviet Union, and the United States as victors of the war were key players that would inevitably

of companies and so on.The two countries who support the European integration most (at least their governments) are Germany and France. One reason therefore might be that both countries have a dramatic increase in unemployment rate within the past few years. In Baden-Württemberg for example, the area where I am from, the unemployment rate has gone up from about 4% in 1992 to around 9% nowadays. Most likely Mr. Chirac's and Mr. Kohl's only solution concerning the unemployment is a fully integrated economy which for sure would create new jobs in Europe.The German population, however, is scared that a United Europe would create new jobs only in low wage countries like e.g. Portugal.

The first Total War also known as the 'bloodiest' war of the century, WWI proved to have a great impact upon all of Europe. Politically, there is a clear scene of what impact the War had on the main powers in Europe: for some countries, such as France and Britain, the change in regime was merely slight, in Germany rather significant, whereas in Russia it proved drastic and sparked off two revolutions. Hence, there were several common aspects of political impacts, both direct and indirect.One of the instances of indirect political impact of WWI was the steadfastly developed idea of 'unity' behind ones government, borne by feelings of patriotism. This mainly existed at the very beginning of

Throughout the postclassical era, Western Europe experienced many commercial and cultural changes. The decline of the Roman Empire is what officially designated the beginning of the postclassical era, which began around 500 c.e, and it lasted until the 15th century.

entry into the UK retail market has been proven to be mutually beneficial. For example, by allowing the UK clothing brand George to be introduced into a much broader market through Walmart stores, both ASDA and Walmart have increased their market share and profitability.
Walmart entered Germany with the standards and company culture used in the U.S. While this strategy was proven in the states, they struggled with success in Germany. The lessons taken away from the experiences in Germany helped supply learning opportunities for future expansion endeavors. Walmart’s expansion into the UK was more successful in part to the issues faced in Germany.

As for me, I?m supposed to be an American, one that was born some ten thousand miles away in an undersized, under-populated, under-represented republic called Armenia. Am I really American? What is American? On October 10, 1492 a man named Christopher Columbus landed in America thinking he was in Eastern Europe. While he may have been wrong in terms of where he was, he nonetheless had experienced some sort of drive, motivation, and persistence to make it there. This same spirit was carried through to the peoples of Europe who realized

Napoleon in Europa: Besatzung oder Befreiung?
“Der Export der Revolution nach Europa war und blieb ein ambivalentes Unterfangen das stets zwischen Besatzung und Befreigung oszillierte.”
Napoleons Machteingreif in Europa kann man weder als eindeutige Besatzung noch als eindeutige Befreiung bezeichnen.
Es gab Vorteile zum Geschehen, jedoch war es ins Gesammt weit entfernt von einer Befreiung.
Napoleon wollte ein geeinigtes Europa, etwas wie die Europäische Union heututage, also gleiche Währung und einheitliche MaSSe, für die Napoleon zu bedanken ist.
Das Ziel war ein grosses Staat mit der Hauptstadt in Paris, wobei Import und Export vereinfacht wären und bei Kriegen ein Bündniss.

El Dorado ExploredIn chapter XVII, Candide and his manservant, Cacambo, enter the country of El Dorado. Here, Voltaire takes the opportunity to further satirize governments, religion, philosophy, and war. All of the religious figures Candide encounters throughout the story are corrupt and sexually promiscuous even though they have taken vows of chastity. El Dorado is a counter for all of the evils of Europe. He uses El Dorado rhetorically to contrast the vices of the real world. If you had not noticed the insanity of the Europeans in the world Voltaire paints, El Dorado, certainly gives a frame of reference.At the beginning of the story, Candide is taught from very early in life by the

The Flaws in Aquinas's Five Proofs
According to 13th-century philosopher St. Thomas Aquinas, the existence of the natural world requires the presence of God. He uses five proofs to justify his theory that God exists and that the natural world can only exist if God is real. However, Aquinas's arguments about the unmovable mover, perfect image, and master designer are deeply flawed. His attempt to confirm the existence of an almighty creator through the five proofs is unconvincing due to multiple faults.
Aquinas's argument shows to be lacking in his first three proofs, the cosmological argument. According to Proofs 1 to 3, Aquinas tries to come up with a reasonable premise

Islamic Architecture and Art and their Influence on Early Modern Europe
Despite the existence of anti-Muslim rhetoric in Europe today, one cannot ignore the fact that for many centuries, the continent was under Islam. The earliest period of its Islamization was 652 A.D. when a small Arab army invaded Byzantine Sicily. The island’s local population comprised of Christians and Jews. However, Islamic influence in Europe was limited since Sicily is an island. Its entry into continental Europe took place in 711 A.D. when the Umayyad conquered Spain. Also known as the Moors, this group renamed this conquered land Al-Andalus

The market conditions prior to the falling value of the Euro indicated potential for expansion and growth even without a manufacturing facility. Despite only 24% of European sales being manufactured from its four facilities in Europe by 2001, Europe was Toyota's second largest foreign market in 2000. Hence, Toyota Motor Europe Manufacturing (TMEM) expected an expansion of its European sales from 634000 to 800000 units by 2005
