He viewed the Jews as a group inferior to the Germans and was a threat to their pure race. Despite persecuting them at small numbers before the war, Hitler later developed his final solution of the Holocaust that was a plan to execute them at last. At the end of World War II, his planned failed but large numbers of Jewish people died in concentration camps in ways like the gas chambers. Today eyewitness accounts can be found of the event despite the country’s denial. The Armenian genocide was mass killing of about one and a half million Armenians perishing in the hands of the Ottomans and the Turkish people.

The U.S. did not want to step in during both genocides. During the Holocaust the U.S. was tied up with Japanese attack, and in the Armenian Genocide, the U.S. believed that the genocide was just a civil war and did not want to step in and possibly cause another world war. The Armenian Genocide fully meets the UN definition of genocide. For example, the Turks were only killing off the Armenian race, which is a main part in the UN definition.
The Armenian genocide was the first genocide of Modern World History, but it was not the first time the world saw an ethnic and religious group angry with and persecuting another. The Armenian genocide is special because it was the first time the world saw mass slaughter being planned and executed by government officials. This deliberate slaughter of Armenians has been the focus of many because of its unique persecution of a single ethnic group and the fact that the Turkish government still denies its existence. Although the Armenian genocide took place in the Middle East, it has impacted the entire world. The Armenian genocide happened during World War I.
Many religious conflicts are built from bigotry; however, only few will forever have an imprint on the world’s history. While some may leave a smear on the world’s past, some – like the homicide of Semitic people – may leave a scar. The Holocaust, closely tied to World War II, was a devastating and systematic persecution of millions of Jews by the Nazi regime and allies. Hitler, an anti-Semitic leader of the Nazis, believed that the Jewish race made the Aryan race impure. The Nazis did all in their power to annihilate the followers of Judaism, while the Jews attempted to rebel, rioted against the government, and united as one.

(Kifner) So, do you think religion has an effect on our world? Just think, without religion, maybe none of these wars would’ve happened, and some innocent people may have lived a long life. But, without religion, we wouldn’t be the same world as we are today. Works Cited “Armenian Genocide”.
