The Major Cause of the Second World War and the Rise of Nazism
There is no doubt World War One drastically changed the world. This catastrophic event
punctured Europe, leaving it devastated like never seen before. After indescribable suffering and
millions dead, the world would never wish to have such a horrendous incident again, creating a
peace treaty with reparations against Germany. The Versailles Treaty had saddled Germany with
tremendous payments of war restitution, leaving her strung in economic chaos, stripped of its
territory, caused widespread humiliation, and drove the then ineffective Weimar Republic out of

regime of Nazism had a significant effect on women as they were now believed to be weaker and inferior.[footnoteRef:1] Despite this view, women were important to Hitler’s Volksgemeinschaft because they insured the growth of the population especially in preparation for war. The role of the women in Nazi Germany was the role of motherhood. As once said my Goebbels “The mission of women is to be beautiful and to bring children into the world”[footnoteRef:2]. The Nazi attitude towards women was seen in the slogan, ‘Kinder, Kuche, Kirche[footnoteRef:3]’ which translates to Children, Kitchen, Church. To encourage woman to have more children, Hitler made birth grants higher so that women would be

communities today. It is something that concerns the very cores of Jews. The Holocaust affects all those who were born either before, after, or during the event. The post-Holocaust birth of a Jew, whether he or she is conscious of it or not, is a statement against Nazism. The Nazis wanted to destroy the Jewish people, but Jews exist. Their very existence is a statement of a fight against Nazism, and a victory, if you like, over Nazism. Therefore, all these things impact on how Jews see themselves.
The Holocaust not only affected all the survivors and harmless people that died but the Holocaust has impacted our views amongst society. While the Holocaust is far more likely to now be a staple of history

Leni Riefenstahl proves herself to be significant to film culture as it was Triumph of the Will which influenced various other nations to create anti-Nazi propaganda such as Britain’s The Curse of the Swastika. This shows her significance to the film industry as, through the stylised imagery within Triumph which glorified Nazism, she was able to inflict fear into the heart of an elite superpower which in turn caused them to distribute anti-Nazi propaganda.

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

forces like Nazism" (83). Their faith taught them an all-inclusive respect for humanity that was the true root of the conscientious objector position. Because"...Jesus himself had refused to do violence to mankind, refused to harm the enemies of his precious existence as a human being," (34) the Chambonnais, in turn, became friends of the weak and the poor people of the earth. They believed human life was too precious to justify the killing that had produced the communist victory over France" (34).The major challenge of Trocme's message of non-violent resistance was how to practice it in Nazi-dominated France. Trocme's sermons did not provide "neat blueprints for nonviolent practice in the war; the only the message to look for within them was to move against destructiveness (85). These "moves" included resisting raising the flag in obedience to Petain in both schools (91) and Amelie's instructed refusal to ring the bell for the Anniversary of the National Revolution (97).

expense of the Soviet Union, Germany would expand eastward, occupy land vital for the herrenvolk (master race) and successfully achieve autarky to enable the realisation of Hitler’s 1000 year Reich.
Nazi foreign policy up to 1939 stemmed directly from Nazism, where whilst in Landsberg prison Hitler dictated Mein Kampf (My struggle), which together with the 25-point programme of 1920 would provide the framework of Hitler’s ideology and that of Nazism itself. He believed ‘man has become great through perpetual struggle. In perpetual peace his greatness must decline (Hitler 1924). Hence Hitler’s ideologies were extremely ultranationalist and built upon his concept of racial purification. This

what makes Lifeboat so disturbing. What film today would dare to hint at anything positive in

Nazism was morally right, simply because the numerical majority of a population agreed with it. The terrorists of September 11 are definitely aberrant in Western culture, but in their own they are saints in paradise. If conventionalism holds true, then the actions of those men were absolutely correct because their society agreed with them. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

Edgar Allen Poe's Symbolism of Death in 'The Fall of the House of Usher'Death is defined as, 'The termination or extinction of something' (American Heritage Dictionary). Edgar Allen Poe uses this description in 'The Fall of the House of Usher' in different ways. Poe's intention when writing 'The Fall of the House of Usher' was not to present a moral, lesson, or truth to the reader; he was simply trying to bring forth a sense of terror to the reader. Poe's mind works this way, and critics believe this statement, especially when related to this story.Edgar Allen Poe was born in Boston on January 19, 1809.

When one begins to analyze a military novel it is important to first look at the historical context in which the book was written. On the nights of February 13-14 in 1944 the city of Dresden, Germany was subjected to one of the worst air attacks in the history of man. By the end of the bombing 135,000 to 250,000 people had been killed by the combined forces of the United States and the United Kingdom. Dresden was different then Berlin or many of the other military targets which were attacked during World War II because it was never fortified or used for strategic purposes and, therefore, was not considered a military target. Because of it's apparent safety, thousands of refugees from all

Psychoanalysis is a system of psychology originated by the Viennese physician Sigmund FREUD in the 1890's and then further developed by himself, his students, and other followers. It consists of three kinds of related activities: (1) a method for research into the human mind, especially inner experiences such as thoughts, feelings, emotions, fantasies, and dreams; (2) a systematic accumulation of a body of knowledge about the mind; and (3) a method for the treatment of psychological or emotional disorders.Psychoanalysis began with the discovery that HYSTERIA, an illness with physical symptoms that occurred in a completely healthy physical body--such as a numbness or paralysis of a limb or a

It can be said that a certain degree of darkness lies within every person, but this darkness will not surface unless given the correct environment. The darkness, however, can emerge and ultimately destroy the person if not checked by reason. If one's inner darkness does surface, the victim then is given the opportunity to reach a point in personal growth, and to gain a sense of self-knowledge from it. That is, when one's darkness appears, one must learn from this experience how he or she can prevent similar results from occurring in the future. It is ultimately through self-knowledge that we gain the power to defeat our inner darkness, and all of its elements. Just as everyone has the

Odysseus' absence from his home is prolonged by the influences of the women whom he encounters.In this epic, several female characters had a profound effect on the plot. They wielded their influence through typically feminine skills and attributes: seduction, supernatural powers, intelligence, and beauty. Some of the women of The Odyssey influenced the actions of men, playing key roles in the epics, such as Calypso, the Sirens, Helen, or Circe; all of these women were responsible for the actions of the men.In The Odyssey, the females

In the play "Hamlet," Shakespeare's characters are confronted with the timeless question: How can one determine what is actually true from what only seems to be true? Throughout the play, the theme of appearance versus reality is constant. This theme is played out from the beginning, with Claudius' attempt to conceal his secret intentions; Gertrude and Ophelia masking their own truths, and finally Hamlet, who assumes the role of a madman in order to uncover the reality behind his appearance.Various characters try to cover their secret intentions with a veneer of a whole other person. One of the most obvious is Claudius. Claudius murdered his brother, the former King Hamlet, in order to

TrichotillomaniaTrichotillomania is a term coined by a French dermatologist in 1889 to describe the compulsive or irresistible urge that he saw in patients to pluck their hair out. The word trichotillomania is a Greek work meaning hair to pull, pluck, mania, frenzy, and madness. This is somewhat misleading as trichotillomania is referred to in psychiatry as an impulse disorder not a "madness" at all.Impulse control disorders are characterized by the inability to control or resist the impulse to do something harmful to oneself or to someone else. A sufferer sometimes experiences a sense of pressure or tension before performing the behavior and can feel a release of tension afterwards

In Jean Rhys's compelling novel about racial tension amidst confusion and anxiety, the author addresses this subtext in such a way as to portray Antoinette as a product of an intolerant society. While more of an underlying theme, the character's racial inner struggles in Wide Sargasso Sea represent a significance to the story's overall flavor and intensity, being that Antoinette is torn the entire time between calling herself black or white. Who is she really, and why is she having such a difficult time coming to terms with her true identity?In Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea, Antoinette is perpetually faced with having to deal with her racial obscurity.

Although they use different terminology Susan Douglas, Ralph Ellison, and Walker Percy mention and emphasize the importance of control at several points throughout their essays. It can be concluded that all three authors believe that it is important for the individual to maintain control over their own self for to sacrifice control would be to lose the individuality that makes a person. The methods society uses to control the individual varies, according to each author.Douglas discusses the media and the immense power it wields over women and their "narcissistic" selves in her essay.

Walker Percy's essay, "The Loss of Creature" maintains that we should "recover the creature" and learn to "extract the thing from the package." However, we can never exclusively recover the creature from the "symbolic package," for we are in a process of continuous discovery throughout our lives and we must see the symbolic complex for more than it appears to be. Percy's methods of perceiving the world are in fact impossible to put into effect for we could not go about placing ourselves into natural disasters and things of the like. Furthermore, that would be defeating the purpose, for once we set out to recover the lost creature, intentionally looking for "it", "it" is lost. However, that

RALPH WALDO EMERSONRalph Waldo Emerson was a sensational poet. Throughout his life, he wrote poetry that bewilders a normal person. Emerson was a very optimistic and self-confident person. This was mainly due to the fact that he was raised in a humble manner. Emerson wrote his poems through his heart and embodied his very soul into his work. Ralph Waldo Emerson had a very distinctive style of writing.It has been said by many critics that many of Emerson's lines in his poetry seem flat and discontinuous. This is true, yet, this should be considered a bad. As most poetry flows evenly throughout, most of Emerson's works did not. He did this in order to develop a poem that was freer and had more

The visual gap in appearance between the two extremes was also becoming less visible. These ideas of equality, however, were not spread universally among all people's residing in United States. The oppression of black slaves, Indians, and sometimes other whites such as immigrants still existed despite the growing ideas of equality.

Men will rise from the dark depths of prejudice... What is prejudice? The Websters dictionary defines it as "a biased opinion based on emotion rather than reason." This is most certainly the case. Through out history groups of people of the same race, religion, color, etc. have had unspeakable acts committed against them by others who think with their "...emotions[s] rather than reason." Because one is a different color they think that that person is odd, or inferior. Or they see some one of a different religion as a person who is rejected by God. These are both examples of prejudice.Many people have seen the effects of prejudice and sought to put an end to it. one such person was Dr

Celts is the name given to a culture rather than a race. Celts varied from curly hair brown hair through red hair. They occupied central and Northern Europe including the British Isles in the Pre-roman period, gradually being pushed further north and westwards by the Roman peoples and the Nordic and Saxon peoples. They were a non-urban people. They lived on small holdings, and kept animals, grew crops and hunted. A typical Celtic house probably looked like a thatched log cabin surrounded by a stockade. They didn't trade much, but metals - especially bronze and iron - were rare and precious, and were probably traded. Women seemed to often be of high status in burial sites. There are a lot of
