WORLD WAR II

HITLER

Hitler, a ruthless man with a vision and the right people to make a scapegoat.

Hitler; A simple man with a vision? Or a god of fear with an iron hand?

Loose lips feel the wrath of the King who sent his knights at night.

Fear

Hitler promised the Germans that if put in power he will disobey the Treaty of Versaille and restore Germany's former glory back to them with more. obviously his promise was popular amongst the people and in no time he was put in power. in power, Hitler took away the constitution and ruled with an iron hand. taking serious effect on anyone who spoke against him he created the Gestapo. Specially trained men who are at the beck and call of Hitler. They eliminate all bad talkers or enemies of Hitler. This and many other methods, made sure that Hitler was feared and not to be crossed with. He appeared to be a god among the people.

The above pictures, demonstrate the policy of appeasement visually, showing how Germany kept on taking because they were filled with greed till the World War 2 was started.

The Second World War was one of the most significant events in Canadian history. Canada played a vital role in the Battle of the Atlantic and the air war over Germany, and contributed forces to the campaigns of western Europe beyond what might be expected of a small nation of then only 11 million people. Between 1939 and 1945 more than one million Canadian men and women served full-time in the armed services. More than 42,000 were killed. Despite the bloodshed, the war against Germany and the Axis powers transformed Canada's industrial base, elevated the role of women in the economy, paved the way for Canada's membership in NATO, and left Canadians with a legacy of proud service and sacrifice embodied in names such as Dieppe, Ortona and Juno Beach.

NETHERLANDS

The involvement of the Netherlands in World War II began with its invasion by Nazi Germany on 10 May 1940. The Netherlands had originally hoped to stay neutral when war broke out in 1939, but this wish was ignored. On 15 May 1940, one day after the bombing of Rotterdam, the Dutch forces surrendered. Subsequently the Dutch government and the royal family went into exile in London.

Following the defeat, the Netherlands was placed under German occupation, which endured in some areas until the German surrender in May 1945. Active resistance was carried out by a small minority which grew in the course of the occupation. The Germans deported the majority of the country's Jews to concentration camps, with the cooperation of the Dutch police and civil service; the Netherlands saw one of the highest levels of collaboration during the Holocaust of any occupied country. 75% of the country's Jewish population were killed during the conflict; a much higher percentage than comparable countries, like Belgium and France.[1]

Most of the south of the country was liberated in the second half of 1944. The rest, especially the west of the country still under occupation, suffered from a famine at the end of 1944, known as the "Hunger Winter". On 5 May 1945, the whole country was finally liberated by the total surrender of all German forces.

ATOMIC BOMBING

The Americans did not bomb the Japanese for the fun of it. in fact, the following reasons explain why they did so;

1. Bombing Pearl harbor and torturing of captured Americans.

2. Expense and effort put into the making of the bombs lead to its use cause no one wants to spend money on a waste.

3. To end the Atlantic war once and for all.

HOLOCAUST

Is this just a mere myth of the playful cruelty of one's imagination? Or did this really happen to the poor innocent Jews? What cruelty caused this? For a personal heartfelt share of the struggles one should read Ellie Wiesel's Night. It is a full account of the transition from their life before and after. It describes the atrocities that took place in the detainment camps. yet the most feared camp remains to be Auschwitz.
