Does humanity learn from history? The Holocaust – Three critical lessons for humanity

Nothing sends shivers down the spine of humanity more than the mention of the Holocaust. Holocaust refers to the mass killing of European Jews between 1941-1945. (Polgar, M. 2018). The horror of the Holocaust lies not only with the horrendous experience the Jews had to go through. It lies with the fact that the entire world was silent while the Jews were being killed and forced into concentration camps. This tragic event taught us several key lessons that are important today in the life of human beings and will continue to be passed on from generation to generations. The Holocaust was a tragic incident in the history of human beings that taught us very significant lessons, such as the danger of silence, the importance of standing up against evil, and the power of evil.

Holocaust taught us the importance of fighting evil. Holocaust was the epitome of levels of evil that humanity can descend to when left unchecked. The Holocaust was state-sponsored since it was a genocide in which Nazi Germany, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler and Nazi party were involved leading to the death of millions of people who were not only Jews but also Romans (Gypsies). The killing and systemic persecution of the Jews were due to two beliefs the Nazis had. Firstly they thought that the Jews were an inferior race. (Polgar, M. 2018). They did not see Jews as religious but as a race. The killing of the Jews was an attempt by the Nazi government to rid the Aryan race of Jewish impurity. (Wolff, N. (2020). The German Nazis wanted to develop a superior race, so physicians were very much part of the exercise. This cleansing was done by burning the Jews whole in the crematoriums, shooting them, gassing them and starving them to death in concentration camps. (Polgar, M. 2018).

The Nazi government saw the Jews as an obstacle to their political aspirations. Jews promoted social justice, while the Nazis wanted the strong trampled upon the weak. The sheer atrocities and the lengths they were willing to go to because they saw themselves as superior Aryan race is appalling. Overall, the Nazis killed approximately 6 million Jews, representing about two-thirds of the entire Jewish population. The attempt of the Nazis to annihilate almost an entire people teaches us the power of evil and the extent of that evil when left unchecked. The Nazis could accomplish all these by enacting laws that targeted the Jews because universal human rights had not been declared. The Holocaust was an extreme violation of human rights. The declaration of Human rights by the U.N. was to prevent another genocide. (Polgar, M. 2018). This situation although its past us, since its an historical tragic incident, still reminds us, the modern society that we should rise up against all forms of evils because it’s the only way the world can be safe and peaceful for everybody regardless of their race, social status and background. It is due to such tragic incidents such as the Holocaust, that we continue to come together as a community to fight all forms of social injustices such as racism because it is these social injustice issues that give rise to evil. Therefore, by coming together and fighting such issues helps in making the world a better place to live. We have witnessed several incidents when people have come together to fight against injustice, there is the Black Lives Matter, an organization that fights for the lives of black people. Viktor Frankl, another Holocaust survivor, said, “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” Thus, if such events are unavoidable, it doesn’t mean we have to sit and watch, we change ourselves by fighting against the situation to change situations for better.

The Holocaust taught the danger of silence in the face of evil. While Jews were being annihilated and forced into concentration camps, the entire world watched in silence, governments were afraid of being involved because they wanted to exclude themselves from being attacked and so instead of mediating, they just watched as people were being killed. Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor, said, “We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” Being neutral in such events, it means that the victim will continue to suffer because the oppressor has more advantage than the victim, since no one is willing to get involved. Thus, we have learnt that incase of another tragic event, we have an opportunity to stand up against such deeds, either by taking one of the sides but we should never be neutral as that only makes things much worse. Throughout 1938-1942 American Newspapers reported on the persecution of the Jews. The News reports on the killing and persecution did not cover much space in the Newspapers. (A Holocaust curriculum (no date) LifeUnworthy of Life. )The much that president Roosevelt was to recall the American Ambassador to Germany and issue a public statement condemning the behaviour. The government officials and president Roosevelt denied the reports or termed the reports as simply 'unconfirmed' America with much influence that she had should have responded by placing sanctions on Germany or any other sanctions, but she watched. Infact in 1943, U.S. Airforce took photos of people being forced into gas chambers. When the photos were showcased in the US, John McCloy insisted that the photos should be kept secret. (A Holocaust curriculum (no date) LifeUnworthy of Life.)

When the Jewish leaders asked the U.S. for planes so that they could bomb Auschwitz's gas chambers, they said that was British responsibility, not theirs. On the other hand, the British responded to the polish and Jewish leaders, saying that such a bombing did not constitute tactical efficiency. America proposed that the only way they could help the Jews was by winning the war against the Germans. (A Holocaust curriculum (no date) Life Unworthy of Life.)The silence and deliberate inaction of the allied officials gave the ticket to the Germans to continue killing the Jews. It meant that no one actually cared for what was happening, thus Germany was offered a free ticket by the rest of the world to continue killing people; that’s what silence against evil means to the oppressor. However, I believe if not so much we have at least learn some significant lessons from the incident, today, the world has learnt to take sides, for instance, the Ukrainian-Russian war, the rest of the world has been doing its bests to aid stop the war through various ways such as mediating between the two presidents of the two countries involved in the war and also other organizations such UN has also helped by not being silent on the issue, this shows we have learnt from our past mistakes and are doing our best to avoid more tragic incidents. The last-minute bombing of Budapest by America salvaged almost nothing. The real damage had been done in Germany. Their silence meant that they were in agreement with what the Jews were doing in one way or another.

The Holocaust taught lessons on bioethics that should be taught to the next generation so that such atrocities are not committed again. Levine, writing on the role that physicians played during the Holocaust, argues even in commitment to science, physicians should balance between scepticism and reason when searching for truth. (Levine, M. A.,2019) This means that when searching for answers in medicine, care should be taken that the researchers, for the love of science, abandon all reason. The second lesson that Levine proposes is that physicians should maintain a balance between clinical detachment and necessary humanity and intimacy with their patients. (Levine, M. A.,2019) The physicians operating during the Nazi regime helped shape the Nazi ideology. They believed in Eugenics and experimented on patients to further their professional careers. Levine argues that today's physicians are faced with the same bioethics problem and should learn from the Holocaust. Human rights lessons should also be included in all levels of learning. When the lessons on the importance of human rights are not taught, the next generation will repeat the mistakes of the past generation. (Hahn, C. L. (2020).

In conclusion, the Holocaust experience taught the world many lessons about humanity. Important lessons include the danger of silence, the importance of standing up against evil, and the power of evil. From the Holocaust also declaration of human rights and the development of bioethics also came about. These lessons should be imparted to the next generation. The lessons that we learned from the Holocaust are still relevant today. The danger of silence, the importance of standing up against evil, and the power of love are all lessons that we need to remember in our world today.

Good: identify an American President that you have an affinity for, and then explain what makes that President “good.”

Bad: identify an American President that you think performed poorly in his constitutional duties, and then explain what makes that President “bad.”

Ugly: identify an American President that you think brought shame to the executive office, and then explain what makes that President’s behavior/policies “ugly.”

You can only assess the following Presidents:

Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, or Clinton.

You can focus on one President, or write about two or three, depending on your assessments. For instance, if you think Ford met all three categories, then explain why. Or if you think Nixon was “good,” but Bush I was both “bad” and “ugly,” explain why.

2,500 words (+/-10%) individual written report to be submitted by W11 (see hand in dates). The report will allow students to achieve the 3 learning outcomes mentioned before, and apply immediately the concept learnt in class on a hospitality or tourism already existing entity: a corporation.

Indicative steps to accomplish

• Students choose a specific corporation in hospitality and tourism they would like to

develop a new concept for.

• Students verify with the lecturer the selection during W2: this will enable students to

receive feedback on the selected company and adjust if needed to the lecturer

feedback

• Students start their own collection of data once they receive the feedback from the

lecturer (W3). They need to collect data to analyse the current situation about the

corporation selected

• Once they have collected data they need to carry out an internal and external

environment analysis they can identify implications for the company selected andstart

identifying an important problem to solve that relates to the company target market (one

main problem only)

• Through the usage of tools given in class and potentially additional one identified in the

literature, they will work on the customer profile and value map for their concept

• In W6 students will present their concept proposal including:

o Description of the idea (what, where, when, how)

o Target market and justification of the choice of this target (who)

o What customer problem does your idea solve? (why)

o Why now? (why)

o Preliminary SWOT Analysis for the company that justifies your idea

• Students need to provide develop the Javelin Board and test the idea with evidence of

customer needs and willingness to buy the product/service by interviewing at least 5

potential customers and analyse findings that will be included in report

o Students should have evidence of secondary data research about internal and

external analysis and customer profile analysis, and evidence of the need: a

minimum of 12 different references need to be identified and used

o Students can enrich their customer profile understanding also by creating a

survey and collect data (the survey does not replace the interviews)

o Students provide the TAM/SAM/SOM Analysis and estimate the growth of the

market in % on the basis of secondary data

• Students need to analyze the competition and provide evidence of the competitor

analysis by identifying at least 4 competitors to analyse and provide the positioning

map and the benchmark table
