10 ComanmentsChapter 16
Section 1
1(terms and names): Joseph Stalin: Leader of the USSR (Russia)
Benito Mussolini: fascist dictator of Italy, best known for association with the Nazi party.
Totalitarian: a form of government in which the ruler is an absolute dictator
Fascism: An authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.
Hitler: Leader of the Nazi party, prime minister/dictator of Germany during WW2
Nazism: a form of socialism featuring racism and expansionism and obedience to a strong leader
Francisco Franco: A Spanish military leader and statesman, who ruled as the dictator of Spain from 1936 until his death, came to power during the Spanish civil war.
Neutrality Acts: Acts passed to limit us involvement in European/Asian affairs.
2: All 4 of those dictators wanted to rule and be the sole ruler. Hitler wanted to kill Jews as well.
3: The treaty of Versailles set the unstable ground in Europe that caused World War 2 by blaming most of the war on Germany. Now, although Germany had been the main cause, they had to face the reparations, and weren’t allowed to keep an army. The Germans felt that they were treated unfairly, the German populace was looking for a change to bring their great country back to its “former glory” and that came along with Adolf Hitler.
4: Hitler found the support from the German people because they needed a change they needed a strong positive figure to follow and pull them from the gutter that the treaty of Versailles and WWI left them in.
5: In my professional opinion, I believe that a stronger nation would most likely assume an isolationist position because they would be more likely to be able to live off of themselves and survive isolated from the world, as opposed to a weaker nation which may be depending on imports or exports from other nations as a greater part of their economy.
Section 2
1: Neville Chamberlain: Prime minister of Britain through the beginning of World War 2. Mostly known for his appeasement policy to Germany, declared war on Germany upon its invasion of Poland.
Winston Churchill: Served as prime minister twice, took over after Neville chamberlain and led Britain through the war.
Appeasement: a diplomatic policy in which concessions are made to the aggressor to avoid war.
Non-aggression pact: a national treaty between 2 or more nations agreeing to avoid war or armed conflicts.
Blitzkrieg: A tactic based on speed and surprise, first used by the Nazis in WWII.
Charles de Gaulle: French general who led the French free forces during WWII.
2: I believe that the most significant event on that timeline was the invasion of Poland by the Germans; I believe that ultimately that was the spark that set off the blazing fire of WWII.
3: I believe that lies and false promises were a big part of Hitler’s power. Germans needed a strong figure to help them out of their depression; Hitler took advantage of that fact and spun his words in a web of lies and promises to restore Germany to its rightful power, capturing the minds and hearts of young Germans looking for a better future.
4: If I had been on the British congress at the time I would’ve voted against the Munich agreement. I would’ve left the choice down to the people of czekoslavokia themselves. In the end it failed regardless.
5: I believe that at the point where Hitler won the country over and realized he had the power of his military behind him that he could begin his invasion and start conquering.
Section 3
1: holocaust: The name given to the time when the Germans where hunting the Jews.
Kristalnatch: the night of broken glass (if I remember correctly), the night where Germans went around destroying Jewish property, homes and businesses. Ordered by the govt and allowed by the police.
Genocide: the destruction or obliteration or an ethnic group, religious group, or national group.
Ghetto: areas where Jews were forced to live, under control and watch from the Nazis. Living conditions where poor.
Concentration Camps: Camps where Jews were forcefully sent to be killed or burned or held till they eventually died of sickness.
2: I believe the 4 events that led to WW2 was the treaty of Versailles, Hitler coming to power (by election), the Nuremberg laws, and the Aryan Solution.
3: I believe that the u.s shouldn’t have blocked the entry of Jews into our land, even though we had already passed the neutrality acts and decided to become isolationist, doesn’t mean we can’t extend a hand of help to those who need it.
4: I believe that the Nazi system of systematic genocide was so effective because a majority of the German people powered the cause, the most obvious proof of that was shown on the night of kristalnacht.
5: I have no idea how the guard and doctors at the camp justified their killing of so many innocent people.
Section 4
1: Axis powers: Germany, Italy and Japan (axis alliance)
Lend Lease acts: an act to aid Britain, France, Russia, and other allied nations with materials for the “further protection of the us”
Atlantic Charter: Was a treaty signed by all the allied powers to not fight for territory or personal gain, but to restore self govt to those deprived from it.
Allies: Us, France, Britain, and Russia (for the most part)
Hideki tojo: prime minister of Japan during WWII
2: I believe the bombardment of Pearl Harbor was the main reason the U.S got into WW2.
3: I believe the us should’ve waited for a good reason to join the war, unfortunately that reason came as an attack to Pearl Harbor.
4: The attack on Pearl Harbor removed the fighting amongst Americans whether to join the war or not, but it created the problem or going to war and mobilizing the army.
5: I believe that Churchill meant that we shouldn’t voluntarily jump into the war but when we tide came to pick us up, when our turn to act came, that we should be ready and willing to act.
