Wanting to better his future, he joined the Austrian Nazi Party in 1932. Eichmann had no idea what Adolf Hitler had in store for the Jews.

    experiment. Lessing only states the small portion of the experiment helping her statement. She leaves out a part of the experiment that talks about if the person has the ability to remain anonymous there is a much greater chance the person won’t conform to the group.

    Several Jewish committees believed that such an effort would be "a perpetual memorial to the weakness and defenselessness of the Jewish people” and would "not be in the best interests of Jewry" (Kindle Locations 2279-2281). The Jewish population did not want to associate themselves with victimhood following the war until after the 1961. Even the popularization of The Diary of Anne Frank was met with a downplay of her Jewish identity and more concentration her coming of age story. The 1961 event…

    Experiments of Inhumanity For the few that know about Dr. Josef Mengele, it’s concluded that he was responsible for The Selections. Selections took place when men were separated from women and children. Then a Nazi would look over them to see if they were healthy or not. With the simple words of “Left or Right”, the fate of the people rested in his hands, but he was responsible for so much more.
