    Throughout the Holocaust there has been a struggle to survive and all the Jews could do is endure and persevere the waves of death surrounding them if they ever wanted to make it out alive. One primary example is in Schindler’s List where Mrs. Nussbaum, trying to make the best of the situation just like all the other Jews forced into the ghetto, tells her husband their ghetto apartment could be worse.

    Reflection: Mentally and Physically Disabled of the Holocaust Following my research on the elimination of the mentally and physically disabled of the Holocaust, I was left with a mix of shock and sorrow. It’s obvious through society’s actions, even today, that disabled people are treated as outsiders, they always have been.

    anomaly for Germany; in fact, it had emerged as a motif throughout their history. It was not until the Herero Genocide when Germany had finally realized their ‘dream’ for racial superiority. David Olusoga and Casper Erichsen, authors of “The Kaiser's Holocaust,” present horrific stories of Germany’s genocidal narrative in Namibia. From that, they deduced that dream for aryan supremacy had its founding in Namibia, not World War II. Although lebernsraum had been the mainstay of Hitler’s…
