The Third Reich – The Rise
Growing up, whether it was in history class, social studies or simply just English, the topic of the Holocaust has been discussed. Our initial teachings of the Holocaust may involve the story of victim Anne Frank. We were taught that the Nazi’s were a very malicious group of German men that were leaded by the infamous Adolf Hitler. Eventually we come to think, how can one man convince numerous amount of men, women and children that these innocent groups of people were so evil, so evil that they had to be exterminated? One word, Propaganda.

"Propaganda tries to force a doctrine on the whole people... Propaganda works on the general public from the standpoint of an idea and makes them ripe for the victory of this idea." Adolf Hitler wrote these words in his book Mein Kamp. The propaganda used was all just a matter of media control, the lie that Jews were the cause of all things wrong with the German business world. Then, racial purity, as if they’re such animals for having their certain beliefs. One of the main tools of the Nazi’s was the production of films. Their effectiveness with the use of films that looked like documentaries were carefully edited and presented exactly what and only what they wanted. Having the power to do that, these films helped them raise the support for the movement by brainwashing Germans to believe that the Jews were the cause of all corruption. Nazi propaganda provided a crucial instrument for acquiring and maintaining power, and for the implementation of their policies, including the pursuit of total war and the extermination of millions of people in the Holocaust. There were posters that used symbolic imagery. These posters offered a romanticized ideal of the Nazi party as a force for good, often employing religious imagery, which represented…...

Jugend Im Dritten Reich

...Jugend im Dritten Reich Zwischen Anpassung und Widerstand Heutzutage sitzen wir vorr dem Fernseher, in unseren heilen Welten, sehen nur durch Nachrichten was auf der Welt passiert. Elend, Unterdrückung, Diktatoren, all das finden wir schrecklich, aber es ist zu weit weg, als dass wir uns wirklich vorstellen können, wie es sich anfühlt, mitten im Geschehen zu stehen. Vor etwa 75 Jahren ist in Deutschland etwas geschehen, dass unsere Geschichte massiv geprägt hat. Die Zahlen der Opfer sind unermesslich, unvorstellbar. Unvorstellbar ist ebenfalls, wie es dazu kommen konnte. Unvorstellbar ist, was man selber getan hätte. Auf welche Seite hätte man sich selbst geschlagen? Anpassung. Widerstand. Hans und Sophie Scholl – "Die weiße Rose" Unsere Facharbeit trägt den Titel: Jugend im dritten Reich – zwischen Anpassung und Widerstand. Das folgende Unterthema jedoch ist vom Vorausgegangenen zu unterscheiden. Die Bewegung um Hans und Sophie Scholl gibt dem Wort Widerstand eine neue Bedeutung. Während es den anderen Jugendoppositionen, wie den Swing Kids zum Beispiel, hauptsächlich darum ging, "anders" zu sein und den Konventionen der Konservativen zu trotzen, was zweifellos nicht weniger zu honorieren ist, formulierte die "Weiße Rose" konkret den Aufruf zum Widerstand, es gab einen Plan, ein Konzept, eine politische Zielsetzung: ein Deutschland ohne Hitler. Die Weiße Rose – eine Widerstandsgruppe, die zusammen mit der Stauffenbergbewegung wohl am Bekanntesten ist. ...

Neo-Liberalism and the Third Way

...Essay Topic One: Explain some of the criticisms of neo liberalism and economic rationalism. How is the third way seen as an advance on neo liberalism and what do critics make of the third way? Neo liberalism and the Third Way Neo liberalism and economic rationalism, synonymous with globalisation, gained prominence during the 1990s as a political ideology that espoused free markets as a method of not only handling affairs of nations, but also as political ideology that can be applied with all sorts of governance issues (Hartman 2005, pp.57-59). The idea was that “market forces would motivate workers and produce a vibrant economy” and that “government interference” through “high taxation and investment in the public sector services, lessened individual freedom and hindered a nations economic progress” (Rees 1994, p.172). Emphasis was placed on costs to the government being shifted back to private individuals and markets (Hartman 2005, p. 59). This would create a situation where markets would flourish with increased competition and reducing the tax burden (Hartman 2005, p.59). This came at the cost of the social state (Rees 1994, pg.171) as countries sought to create “market friendly, liberalized, lean, decentralised, customer orientated, managerial and democratic state[s],” (Bangura 2000, p.17). In Australia the conversion of public services into market commodities and increased privatisation of public provisions (Jimrozik 2005, p.42) found a scapegoat in the welfare state......

Third World

...Debt forgiveness refers to the act of excusing heavily indebted countries from all or part of their unsustainable debt. The last 50 years have seen external debt emerging as a long term structural problem hampering the economies of many less developed and developing countries. Latin America owes £365 billion in debts to other countries and banks (36 per cent of what it produces - its Gross National Product), while sub-Saharan Africa owes £140 billion (83 per cent of its total GNP). This means that repayments to western creditors take priority and ordinary people suffer. As such, ramifications of such contentious issue have fuelled debate deliberating cancellation as the antidote for third world prolonged undeveloped affliction. Arguments in favour of forgiveness would be examined in theoretical perspective utilizing dependency theory analysis The world is faced with an attack of capital against labour of imperialist countries against all of the periphery populations. Dependency analysis postulates an exploitative exchange between opposing groups on the basis of maximizing capital and profits. With consideration upon this, such exploitative nature has emanated itself into the context of loans lent to undeveloped countries under the pretext of it elucidating the development problematique where it is only another mechanism of exploitation and the perpetual expansion of profits and securing of interests of core imperialist states. One of the main supporting claims for......

Hitler’s Army: Soldiers, Nazis, and War in the Third Reich:

...Hitler’s Army: Soldiers, Nazis, and War in the Third Reich: Omer Bartov Ioan Popescu 500182744 HST 603-011 The autonomy of the Wehrmacht within the confines of the Third Reich, particularly with respect to its relationship with the Nazi party has been open to considerable debate post World War II. In Hitler’s Army: Soldiers, Nazis, and War in the Third Reich, Omer Bartov addresses the motivating factors responsible for transforming the Wehrmacht from merely a highly efficient and professional military organization into an extremely politicized armed forces motivated by National Socialist ideals. Bartov argues four distinct yet related theories which, when taken together bring insight into the Nazification of the Wehrmacht in ultimately becoming Hitler’s Army. His arguments first highlight the war experience through the de-modernization of the Wehrmacht particularly on the eastern front along with the social organization relating to the destruction of the ‘Primary Group’. These factors resulted in the Wehrmacht to compensate through the ‘Perversion of Discipline’ which directly attributed to many war crimes along with harsh punishment of its own soldiers. Finally, the distortion of reality through propaganda all shaped the soldiers perception of the war and ultimately allowed Hitler to assume total control of the Wehrmacht. Murray Sager argues that the Wehrmacht supported Hitler, not just in gratitude, but because the Wehrmacht closely identified with the aims of......

Third Girl

...Agatha Christie - Third Girl CHAPTER ONE HERCULE POIROT was sitting at the breakfast table. At his right hand was a steaming cup of chocolate. He had always had a sweet tooth. To accompany the chocolate was a brioche. It went agreeably with chocolate. He nodded his approval. This was from the fourth shop he had tried. It was a Danish patisserie but infinitely superior to the so-called French one near by. That had been nothing less than a fraud. He was satisfied gastronomically. His stomach was at peace. His mind also was at peace, perhaps somewhat too much so. He had finished his Magnum Opus, an analysis of great writers of detective fiction. He had dared to speak scathingly of Edgar Alien Poe, he had complained of the lack of method or order in the romantic outpourings of Wilkie Collins, had lauded to the skies two American authors who were practically unknown, and had in various other ways given honour where honour was due and sternly withheld it where he considered it was not. He had seen the volume through the press, had looked upon the results and, apart from a really incredible number of printer's errors, pronounced that it was good. He had enjoyed this literary achievement and enjoyed the vast amount of reading he had had to do, had enjoyed snorting with disgust as he flung a book across the floor (though always remembering to rise, pick it up and dispose of it tidily in the waste-paper basket) and had enjoyed appreciatively nodding his head on the rare occasions when......

The Third Reich

...There have been a lot of controversies about Hitler being the master of the third Reich after the Second World War. The intentionalist historians, such as, Richard Evans and Eberhard Jackel have argued Hitler was a strong dictator, and thus an interventionist. They focus on Hitler’s nature of dictatorship and argued was the prime mover of domestic and foreign policy, again indicating he was an interventionist. However, the structionalist historians challenge this idea of Hitler being an omnipotent figure and argues Hitler’s state of government was polycratic and chaotic. They argued Hitler was a merely puppet, a figurehead ‘non-interventionist’, although his ideas were central to Nazism, they were empowered by others. The historian Lan Kershaw came up with this argument of working towards the Fuhrer, arguably making him a non-interventionist dictator as others knew what he wanted, example the Fuhrer Befehl therefore he didn’t have to get involved in the day-day running of government. It has been argued that Hitler’s image of a powerful dictator made his a ‘non-interventionist’. Structuralist historian, such as Lan Kershaw argued in source 4 Hitler was a ‘non-interventionist dictator’, his image of being erratic was in fact a myth. As a result, his ‘party officials, more often than not, tended to view the will of the Fuhrer’, as suggested by source 5. Ultimately Hitler was weak in that he relied on, albeit a very powerful propangda machinery by Goebbels, to provide a myth. ......

Third World

...sfhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhWhy you should stop using the term “third world countries” August 7, 2014 · by LofAlexandria · in Political/Social Opinion It is not uncommon for people to use the phrases “First World Country” and “Third World Country” to describe various parts of the world today. Interestingly, I almost never hear anyone describe a country as a “Second World Country”, ever wonder why that is? Mostly this has to do with the history of the phrases and their true meanings. Amusingly when I set out to write this article I was under the impression that the original terms has nothing to do with economics or development and instead was based solely on socio-political lines on the globe. The truth is that shortly after the United Nations was born in 1945 it set about the arduous task of developing a manner in which to compare the wealth of nations. In doing so they created the terms “First World”, “Second World”, “Third World”, and “Fourth World” to describe both the economic and political landscape of the world [1]. Although at least one source I have reviewed states that the term “Fourth world was not coined until much later in the 1970’s [2]. Essentially, first and second world countries were the wealthy industrialized nations of the world. First world countries were the democratic “free” countries of the world. Sometimes I have seen the first world descreibed as America and its allies during the cold war. The second world countries were the socialist-communist......

The Third Dumpster

...”THE THIRD DUMPSTER” BY GISH JEN In most parts of the world there are cultural and ethnic differences within a population. Therefor it’s relevant to discuss how to establish a country’s society. In this discussion two answers are regularly presented: assimilation or integration. A society is highly dominated by dissimilarity. All individuals have different backgrounds, stories and experiences, and for that reason all individuals behave differently in a social context. In regards to the concepts of assimilation and integration a question of moral unfolds: Is it required to fully adapt to the country’s culture, traditions, behavior and language, and with that forget your origin? In the short story “The third dumpster” the author portrays the concepts of integration and assimilation as a contrast. The short story’s main characters, the brothers Goodwin Lee and Morehouse, are Americans with Chinese heritage. Both brothers have found a balance between identifying as American and Chinese. On the contrary their parents only identify as Chinese even though they both have a US citizenship: “And their parents were Chinese, end of story, as Morehouse liked to say. Meaning that though they had been Americans for fifty years and could no longer belay themselves hand over hand up their apartment stair rail to go to their bedroom, they nonetheless could not go into assisted living because of the food” (p. 2 l. 8-11). A distinct separation between the Chinese culture and American......

...[pic]Third Party Insurance In India, under the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, it is mandatory that every vehicle should have a valid Insurance to drive on the road. Any vehicle used for social, domestic and pleasure purpose and for the insurer's business motor purpose should be insured. Insurance is a contract whereby one party, the insurer, undertakes in return for a consideration, the premium , to pay the other, the insured or assured, a sum of money in the event of the happening of a , or one of various ,specified uncertain events. Insurance developed from the fourteenth century as a means of spreading huge risks attendant on early maritime enterprises; life and fire insurance developed later. The main classes of insurance are life and other personal insurance, marine insurance, accident or property insurance and liability insurance when the sum becomes payable when legal liability is incurred as for personal injuries or professional negligence to another. Motor third-party insurance or third-party liability cover, which is sometimes also referred to as the 'act only' cover, is a statutory requirement under the Motor Vehicles Act. It is referred to as a 'third-party' cover since the beneficiary of the policy is someone other than the two parties involved in the contract i.e. the insured and the insurance company. The policy does not provide any benefit to the insured; however it covers the insured's legal liability for death/disability of third party loss......

The Third Dumpster

...The Third Dumpster In "The Third Dumpster", we meet the two Chinese brothers Morehouse and Goodwin, who are trying to get along in American society. The author Gish Jen is a second generation Chinese-American, whose parents emigrated from China to America. Many of her works focus on the multicultural America, in which many different ethnic groups live, and how these get along with each other. "The Third Dumpster" was written in 2013 . The story is told through the eyes of Goodwin, as the third-person narrator is bound to him. His stream of thoughts is shown to the reader, which makes the reader sympathize with him. The story starts in medias res, where we are told about the two brothers' situation. We are told about the house, which they bought, and from here, we are told more and more about their lives in America, with the old house and the restoration of this as the main conflict. As the story progresses, we are told about the struggles which the two brothers are going through, and the conflict between the two, not only in relation to the individual moral of the two and their actions, but also in regards to their parents and how they are going to work things out with them. Therefore, one could say that there are two parallels: the main story, which takes place in the present, and the backstory of the family, Goodwin's marriage and their assimilation in America. These are told side by side, as the story progresses. Because the narrator tells the story through the eyes......

The Third Dumpster

...different. In the short story ‘The Third Dumpster’ written by Gish Jen, we meet two brothers and their struggle to make the perfect nursing home for their parents. The short story deals with the two brothers, Goodwin and Morehouse, who have bought an old poor home on auction for their Chinese parents to live in. Their parents have been living in the US for the past 50 years, although they do not like the culture or the food for that matter. Goodwin and Morehouse are to renovate the old home, so that it becomes livable and at the same time make their parents actually like the US. The house was a bargain for the two brothers; it was close to their home and the house is in one plan, which makes it easy for the parents to cope. In spite of the two brothers effort, the parents are not pleased. The short story starts in media res, just after Goodwin and Morehouse has bought the house. We are presented to the story, almost without any insight information about any of the characters; the only thing we know is that Goodwin and Morehouse are brothers. The story is being told by a third person narrator, through the eyes of Goodwin, which means we only get an insight in his thoughts and feelings. Every culture has a tradition on how to properly take care of old people who no are able to take care of themselves. In America there is two different options, and in this short story there is three, which also is connected to the title, the third dumpster. The writer tells about......

The Third Dumpster

...The Third Dumpster The Third Dumpster by Gish Jen is the story of chinese brothers; Goodwin Lee and Morehouse, relocating their parents to a new home. Jen writes the story in a comical contrasting way. The language and ideals of the brothers contrasts that of their parents. Jen uses many constrasting sentences throughout his story in the conversations of Goodwin and Morehouse. The language used by Morehouse and Goodwin’s parents, is funny and prejudice. Jen begins the story by telling us that the brothers have bought a house for their parents because they couldn’t climb the stairs in their apartment anymore. ’’..they had been Americans for fifty years and could no longer belay themselves hand over hand up their apartment stair rail to get to their bedroom..’’ here Jen uses some contrast that isn’t out in the open, he states that even though they had been americans for fifty years they couldn’t bring themselves up the stairs. The contrats can be found in their age saying that ’’they had been americans for fifty years’’ before they were able to climb the stairs now they can’t. Jen continues the story with the brothers as they are fixing the house and now need a place to dump their garbage. Here Jen shows a contrast in society and how it affects some people, ”Goodwin was out scouting for dumpster. Becuase this was what the recession meant in their neck of the woods…” ’’He (Goodwin) did not, of course, like the idea of illicit trash disposal; he would have perferred to do......
