How history influenced Star Wars
In World War II, members of the Nazi army were called storm troopers. The storm trooper composed a major part of the Nazi army. In Star Wars, the soldiers are also called storm troopers.
In Star Wars, Yoda says many Buddhist ideas and beliefs. Yoda was even modeled after a well known buddist.
Just like when the young Jedi's are murdered, during the Holocaust Jewish children were killed in gas chambers and concentration camps. Even though the children did not do anything wrong, their lives were still taken from them when they were barely beginning.
