Nazi Germany

On History class, we are studying the topic of Nazi Germany. Firstly, we had to make presenations about a topic that our teacher lenny gave us. My group , that consists of Margarita Muller, Juana Perez Muñiz  and I, made a presentation of the Persecution of Minorities. We did a presentation using the tool powtoon including information from our history books.  Secondly, in september 20th, we recieved Mr Leguizamon, and he told us about his experience in the «Marcha por la Vida», and how where the concentration camps in all europe. Thirdly we visited the «Museo del Holocausto», where we saw a testimony of a men who was in Auschwitz and our lovely guide told us about alot of thing that where in the museum. My opinion on this project is that this was an opportunity that help us realize what we did wrong in the past and what we shouldnt do in the future, for all the people in the world to live in peace whithout prejudice abour the others.

Then we searched for two videos on the topic of our presentation.

Kristallnacht: Night Of Broken Glass

This video explains the Kristallnacht, what was the event.

And this is a quote that we found on the topic.

Quote:

The day after Kristallnacht the techer said:

” Don’t worry about what you see, even if you see some natsy things which you may not understand. Hitler wants a better Germany, a clean Germany. Don’t worry, evrything will work out fine in the end.”

Nazi Treatment of Gypsies

This video is about the treatment that Gypsis had in Nazi Germany, which was bad, they made them change their lifes completley.

  • Martin Leguizamon´s Visit

On september 20th, Mr Martin Leguizamon, jero´s father, came to talk about his experience in the «Marcha por la Vida», which is the journey that all the people that were in the Concentration camps had to do when this places were evacuated because of the coming of the Allies. He told us devastating stories about what had happened in the concentration camps, and how was his experience visiting them , with his students.  He also told us what his experience was in the Ghetto of Warsaw. Martin also taught us the diffrence about Holocaust and Shoa.

  • Museo del Holocausto

On the 28th of september we went to the Museo del Holocausto. Firstly we saw a testimony of a survior of the Holocaust. This man had lost all his family exept for his brother after being in Auschwitz, and he then came to live in Argentina, we he formed a family. He told us about the awful thing that happen to him, like almost being killed because one of his work mates tried to kill a Nazi soldier.  And then we got to see the part of the museum that had all the sources from that period of time. We got to see from striped pijamas to the rests of thing of the Kristallnatch. This is a collage with picture i took from my experience.

The Abyssinian Crisis – 1936

For our history class our teacher Lenny told us to watch a video that explained the Abyssinian crisis and to answer the questions she posted on her blog. These are my answers

The Italian empire in 1930 wasn’t very big compared to other empires.

He explains that Italy wanted more land. He said that it wasn’t fair that the British and the French had a lot of land but they couldn’t conquer anything.

3)WHAT IS ABYSSINIA TODAY? WHAT WAS THE SITUATION BY 1930?

Abyssinia today is  the country of Ethiopia. The situation in the 1930 was that their population was growing so they needed more land and that they needed more places from where to extract raw materials.

4)WHAT EXCUSE DID MUSSOLINI HAVE TO CONQUER ABYSSINIA?

The excuse that Mussolini had to conquer Abyssinia was that they needed more territory and that they needed more raw material.

5)WHAT WAS THE ROLE OF FRANCE AND GREAT BRITAIN IN ITALY’S INVASION?

The role that France and Great Britain had in the invasion was that France said that if Italy invaded Abyssinia they wouldn’t do anything and that Great Britain said that if they invaded Abyssinia they would take action but they wouldn’t go to war.

6)WHAT EVIDENCE DOES MUSSOLINI’S DAUGHTER PROVIDE?

The evidence that Mussolini’s daughter provided was that when she was staying at London her father asked her if she could tell everyone she know in London that Italy was going to attack Ethiopia. When he told everyone that they were going to attack nobody seemed to care. Then she met the Prime Minister and she asked him if Italy invaded Ethiopia  would they go to war with them and he said no, so she was very relieved about his response.

7)WHAT DID YOUNG SOLDIERS BELIEVE WAS THEIR DUTY TOWARDS ITALY?

What young soldiers believed was their duty was to take part and help on the invasion. They also believed that their duty was to make Italy great.

8)WHAT WAS CONTROVERSIAL ABOUT THE USE OF POISON GAS BY THE ITALIANS?

What was controversialwas that the Italians said that chemical warefare was uncivilized.

9)WHAT DID THE LEAGUE DECIDE TO DO? HOW EFFECTIVE WERE THOSE MEASURES?

The League decided to apply sanctions to Italy. There werent very effective because it made Italy want to go to war.

10)HOW DID ORDINARY PEOPLE REACT TO SANCTIONS?

Ordinary people didnt think the sanction was fair because she had asked France and Great Britain for permission before invading Ethiopia.

This is the Video:

This are our answeres:

1) War guilt. Explain the arguments FOR and AGAINST this term.

1) For: Because she declared war on Russia and France and later invaded Belgium, she was prepared and eager for war
Against: things provoked war like the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, A-H ultimatum and declaration of war to Serbia,Russia started mobilizing.

2) Which term followed War Guilt? How much would it be today? What consequences/impact did it have on Germany?

2) The next term was Reparation. It would be four hundred billion dollars, they would continue paying it three years later.

3) Why were the victors planning to prevent a future war with Germany in the Treaty?

3) Because they had taken away most of her army, making it impossible for them to get to war.

4) What territorial losses did Germany have to face? What happened to the German colonies? What did Wilson dislike about this?

EXTENTION WORK

This is the voicethread that i did with Silvestre and Flor

This is our plan for the voicethread.

  • Did you feel you learnt more than if you had studied this from the book?

Yes, because we made it in a voice thread and we heard it a lot to check o mistakes.

  • What did you personally enjoy about the project?

I enjoyed to see the differet points of view about eachg countrie.

  • What would you change from this project if  the class from Senior 1 next year were going to do it again?

Maybe it will be funnier and interesting to do a video instead of a voicethread.
