Joshua Huver 24 April, 2008 T. Campbell HIS 1120 Case Study #20 1. The Ottoman Empire was surely experiencing a genocide. The definition for genocide is; the systematic killing of all the people from a national, ethnic, or religious group, or an attempt to do this, and that’s exactly what occurred. To me ethnic cleansing is the same thing as genocide but just trying to sugar coat its name. The most common characteristic of the two is that their both trying to wipe out an entire race. 2. I do not believe they were justified in my opinion. 3. The Kurds originate from Kurdistan but have tribes throughout Europe. The Kurds had many uprisings during the Gulf War. In 1988 wikipedia states” The Halabja poison gas attack occurred in the period 15 March–19 March 1988 during the Iran-Iraq War when chemical weapons were used by the Iraqi government forces and a number of civilians in the Iraqi Kurdish town of Halabja (population 80,000).” 4. After reading I did not see anything about the Germans commanding their artillery. The only answer I have for this was because Germanys army was so good, the Armenians wanted to learn from the best. That way they would have sort of an advantage with their combat skills and military techniques. Case Study #21 1. Hitler’s thinks that there are both positives and negatives to racial characteristics. One negative is that the German people lack that sure instinct on the herd which has its roots in the unity of blood and internal distractions will immediately disappear. The racial elements have remained unmixed, yet designated with the word super individualism. Adolf Hitler 2. According to Hitler the function of propaganda was “to point out to the masses definite facts, processes, necessities. In the propaganda you must comprehend the great masses’ world of emotions and imagination it will psychologically correct form, to the attention and more people will want to be a part.” Adolf Hitler 3. Based on Hitler’s text I think he was kind of directing this to the next great generation. Telling them how they need to run things and especially how listening is a key component to being a successful leader.

Case Study #22 1. The definition of Genocide is; the systematic killing of all the people from a national, ethnic, or religious group, or an attempt to do this. To me I cannot agree that this was exactly a genocide because the Japanese did not come into china just to kill all of the Chinese. It was a mass execution though where it is believed that more than 300,000 died, and 20,000 more women raped. The Japanese revisionist till this day still deny the atrocities that they committed in December of 1937. Some say that the attacks were not of aggression, that the death toll was exaggerated, and some even go as far as saying the massacre itself is a fabrication. 4.
