Katie Kastelic  Mr. Qaiss Section: 008 4/12/16                                       World War 2 Documents Document 164: This was about the Holocaust caused by Adolf Hitler and his idea of “The final  Solution”, which was to kill all Jews, and anyone else that wasn’t German or met the standards  of a German. This is ironic, because Hitler himself is part Jewish. In this document, someone  who experienced the catastrophes of the Holocaust wrote about her experiences at the Treblinka  concentration camp. She mentioned her thoughts on deportation, that she didn’t even know what  it meant, but knew it was associated with death. Later, she was imprisoned for four weeks, and  brought on a train packed with people to Treblinka. Later, she saw people being thrown into a  pit, put into gas chambers for 15 minutes, and everyone had 1 minute to take their clothes off and fold them otherwise they would be shot. The document is unclear how she escaped the camp.  The reason why she couldn’t escape before, was because other prisoners were preventing her  from escaping, for they were told that for every prisoner that escapes, 10 prisoners will be shot.  She was assigned as a beater (even though she was a prisoner too) to keep prisoners in order.        Document 166: This document described what people thought of the war. Some thought it  meant death/suffering, and others thought it meant technological innovation, bureaucratic  expansion, and a great mobilization of human resources. The government supported it, seeing it  as a holy war to help their cultures, a new world order. Leaders were thinking that they were  fighting for freedom and tyranny. World War 2 was so prominent, because it caused a large rises  and fall of empires, as well as racial tension. It was a race war with the mass genocide of the  Jews, and the Germans seeing themselves as the perfect race. America/the United Kingdom  didn’t help the Jews as much as they could have because of anti­Semitism. Later, racism  extended to America where blacks were segregated. According to the document, there were  problems with racism with the Japanese because they were depicted as apes by the Americans. In my opinion, the document exaggerates racism and hints that this could be the cause of the attack  on Pearl Harbor. The document leaves out the fact that the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor  because the Americans refused to let them have oil, which the Japanese needed for their planes,  because the Japanese attacked Indochina, and the Americans disagreed with that. So, the  Americans and the Japanese weren’t necessarily having a race issue, but a war on oil.                    Document 167: This document was about America dropping an atomic bomb on Hiroshima in  1945. The explanation of this killing of 80,000 civilians was described by a high school girl from Hiroshima herself. She described the devastation of the atomic bomb after it hit and she was  rescued from the rubble of her house, that the trauma was so severe, that people would be on fire  and not react in pain from it. Everyone must have been in shock, because the young girl wasn’t  even aware of her excessively puffed up face and skin falling off her limbs. She couldn’t get any  medical help, because she and her mom were poor. Plus, she was called a monster because her  neck and left side of her face had severe keloids. Miraculously, she was one of 25 maidens  chosen to be sent to America to get plastic surgery. The Americans didn’t like it and blamed her  as one of the people to attack Pearl Harbor. The reason the U.S. decided to drop the atomic  bomb, (according to this article) was because people thought it would end the war faster.  Personally, I think another reason was to test the atomic bomb to see how much devastation it  would actually cause, it was called the “Manhattan Project” after all.
