Jews and Society: Social Anti-Semitism

- In Hanna Arendt’s “Jews and Society”, she argues that the existence of anti-Semitism in Germany, prior to the rise of Hitler and after the defeat in World War I, was not solely the result of political pressure exerted by the Nazi party and its accomplices; but instead the result of a social construction of what it meant to be Jewish. This social anti-Semitism was present long before Hitler came into power and instituted his radical and merciless ideas about dealing with Jews in Europe. The difference between what Arendt saw as harmless social discrimination and the mass extermination of a cultural group was the involvement of politics in mediating these cultural biases....   [tags: society issues, semitism, jews]

- The Nazis systematically exploited the Jews in many ways, but a subtle, and lesser-known approach they used was to silently capitalize on the positive-thinking of the Jews. The Jews consistently denied reality during the Holocaust in an effort to shield themselves from the horrors that were occurring to their people. Many historical pundits see the Jews’ collective denial of their genocide as a mere lack of awareness, despite obvious evidence of the ubiquity of Nazi anti-Semitism at the time. It is clear that the Jews were wrong to deny reality during the Holocaust because it prevented a possible means of escape for them, concealed evil with optimism, and hindered their decision-making proce...   [tags: holocaust, optimism, nazi]

Assimilation of Jews in the Interwar Period

- During the interwar period of the twentieth century, Jewish immigrants and American born Jews faced increasing ant-Semitism and discrimination. The external pressure of anti-Semitism and discrimination led to many Jews facing internal anxieties and conflicts about being Jewish and fitting into American society.

Use of Propaganda to Spread Anti-Semitism in Nazi Germany During the 1930’s and 1940’s

Anti-Semitism Essay - Martin Luther as Spiritual Icon for Adolf Hitler

- Martin Luther as Spiritual Icon for Adolf Hitler    The world has been plagued with the specter of anti-Semitism for many centuries. This hatred manifested itself in the frenzy of Nazism and the deaths of six million Jews, the Holocaust as it has come to be known. If someone were to reveal an eight step plan for the removal of Jews from European society, one would readily associate such a plan with Adolf Hitler. One would not, however, think also of Martin Luther, though he himself wrote an essay in 1543 entitled "Concerning the Jews and their Lies" outlining such a plan....   [tags: Martin Luther Essays]

The Merchant of Venice Should be Studied in High Schools

- Since middle school, I have believed that all of Shakespeare’s works, similar to A Mid Summer Night’s Dream, were plays that one would read to hear a happy, entertaining story; but, it was not until this year, after reading The Merchant of Venice, that I recognized the darker, more sinister, side of Shakespeare’s plays. The Merchant of Venice supports the Jewish, anti-Semitic stereotype as the wicked character of Shylock is developed. Many individuals fear that it is improper to teach and discuss The Merchant of Venice in high school classrooms because of the negative way it presents Jews; however, I believe that it is important to read this controversial play in high schools because...   [tags: Shakespeare, Anti-Semitism]

The Anti Semitic And Racist Ideology

- ... Against the infection of materialism, against the Jewish pestilence we must hold aloft a flaming ideal.” Based on Hitler’s anti-Semitic bias in world politics, he decided to combat the extreme problem he foretold with the blitzkrieg of France, another extreme measure. Weinberg summarizes this rationale as part of one of Hitler’s core foundations of Hitler’s foreign policy: “perpetual territorial expansion that was the essence of his foreign policy was an integral part of his perception of the nature and needs of German society as defined in racial terms.” Therefore, it is possible to contend that Hitler viewed expansion and conquest not necessarily as a security objective, but as a sta...   [tags: Nazi Germany, World War II, Racism, Nazism]
