Discrimination against jews in the United States
This information is about discrimination against Jews in the United States, also Germany. In the late 19th century and early 20th century is when this took place. Jews were antisemitism, people thought that Jews were not truly German or American. In 1930 many Jews fled to the United States because of the strong discrimination they had no future in Germany. In 1933 a civil service law was passed which called for the purging of Jews from all government agencies. By 1941 the Germans began to slaughter all of the Jews.

Aaron Nelson's insight:

Racism and ethnic discrimination in the United States was one of the biggest issues there could be. Some people in the U.S. continue to have some prejudices against other races. "Legally sanctioned racism imposed a heavy burden on Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latin Americans." When the U.S. discovered the full extent of Nazi Germany's genocidal plan against Jews, white Americans became more willing to examine their own country's racism. But why did after they discover something its all of a sudden important. There were crimes happening during the Holocaust too. The Jews had also lived in the countries that the Nazi Germany would occupy during World War II. Racism in the U.S. has also been related to the issue of slavery. Racism is still today going on. People all around the world including the U.S. all have racist people, its like racism never goes away. Before now i thought that racism was only towards the blacks. I now know that not only racism went towards the blacks but also to the Jewish people. But the blacks were the slaves.

The United States Map

Aaron Nelson's insight:

The Nazis came to their power in Germany. Because of the Nazis power the Jews were living in every country of Europe. I quote "nine million Jews lived in the countries that would be occupied by Germany during World War II." The Jews of eastern Europe lived in predominantly Jewish towns or villages, called shtetls. Some of the Jews spoke their own language called Yiddish. Some of the "younger Jews in larger towns were beginning to adopt modern ways and dress, older people often dressed traditionally, the men wearing hats or caps, and the women modestly covering their hair with wigs or kerchiefs." Jews had enough power they could all walks of life, as farmers, tailors, seamstresses, factory hands, accountants, doctors, teachers, and small-business owners.

Anti-Semitism in America: Down, but not out

Anti-Semitism in America: Down, but not out | Discrimination against jews in the United States | Scoop.it
With anti-Semitism in the United States at historic lows, what will the job of Abraham Foxman’s successor at the ADL look like?
Aaron Nelson's insight:

In many parts of the world America tops the list of countries where Jews suffer least from anti-Semitism. Jews had permission to live, study and work in the United States. By letting Jews in the U.S. "Foxman" said “We’ve made an awful lot of progress in this country in terms of social anti-Semitism." But just because the Jews are in that does not mean that it hasn’t eliminated some of the vestiges of anti-Semitism. In New York, the Jewish students were getting beat up and bullied. I quote "Last month, three Jewish families from the district filed a lawsuit claiming that their children were forced to endure “rampant anti-Semitic discrimination and harassment.” Some Jews have made it in America though.

This information informs people of how jewish people were treated. jews were persecuted, people treated jews like they were not human, like were another species. Jews were discriminated agianst just because of there religion and what they beleive in. Jewish people had to endure the visious discrimination against them. Many jewish people died because of this. But many jews fled to the United states for safety.

Description

Racism (false)

Aaron Nelson's insight:

Basically the Jews were treated badly. The U.S. had a big problem with the Jews. Finally over time the Jews were allowed into the U.S. and allowed to live study and work. The Nazis targeted the Jews and made them their main target. The Jews lived all over Europe and had their own language to speak in. There were Jews that lived in different country's living many different ways. Hitler was once upon a time successful in his life. The Nazi came to there power finally. There also was deaths of millions of Jewish people. In NY there were Jewish kids getting bullied and beat up in the U.S. The U.S. was violent to the Jewish, they disliked them. Now the Jews only make up 2% of the population. A lot of this took place in Germany too.

gaci_holocaust.pdf

Aaron Nelson's insight:

This is a book describing The Jewish Holocaust. I quote "Jews seized and murdered Gentile children in order to use theirblood in the baking of ceremonial bread for the Passover celebration." There were scapegoated and persecuted by many Christian in Europe. Later on Hitler and the Nazis made a relationship with the German public. Hitler was successful, he was getting rid of people/things he did not need nor fit in. But the Jews were the Nazis main target to hit. "For several centuries Jews in Eastern Europe “enjoyed a period of comparative peace, tranquility and the flowering of Jewish religious life."

Abby Martin peddles Jewish exceptionalism, fears WW2 truth

Abby Martin peddles Jewish exceptionalism, fears WW2 truth | Discrimination against jews in the United States | Scoop.it
Recently, Abby Martin, the host of “Breaking the Set” on the Russia Today network, released two segments on the subjects of the Nazis and the “holocaust,” an event which she described as “a horrific genocide that forever changed the world.”
Aaron Nelson's insight:

This is talking about how important racism against the Jews. The racist people where basically to prideful to admit that they were even wrong. Being to prideful is one of the most deepest sins, I'm not sure if the people knows that.  “Nazi hunter” Simon Wiesenthal, that Wiesenthal invented the figure of five million non-Jewish victims of Hitler in order to stimulate interest in the holocaust among non-Jews."  Auschwitz was a labor camp. There was also a lot of deaths of the Jews in this situation. Later it explains more about the Auschwitz camp.

Aaron Nelson's insight:

Most American Jews are descendants of the great migration of Jews to the U.S. "Today, they make up little more than 2 percent of the population, but their influence is outsized." They had researchers surprised that the younger Jews were beeing called an offensive name.  "Also more than four in ten (43 percent) Jewish Americans who see Jews facing a lot of discrimination in the U.S." The Jews perceive a lot of discrimination against a whole bunch of groups in American life. The Jews went through a lot with the U.S.
